  • Daphne Won't Eat Her Dog Food

    Hi,

    I have had my 2 year old Dane Daphne on Fromm Large Breed dog food for about 1.5 years. She would always eat it no problem but in the last few months she just doesn't want to. I don't know if the formula has changed or what has happened. To get her to eat it, I had to introduce some 'toppers' (cooked eggs, dog treats, chicken breast, beef, coconut oil, etc.) and now she will eat the toppers and about half of her kibble. Without toppers, she won't eat. I think I need to switch her to a different brand of food but have always had problems settling on a new one. She loved CSFTS but I can't get that in Canada anymore. I know to look for meat sources in the top 6 ingredients but I kindly ask for some name brand suggestions. Thank-you!

    She may need a decrease in the amount fed. She is at an age where many start eating less... If you want to do a switch try switching ot other formulas of the same brand.. it doesn't need to be large/giant breed.. it just needs to be a good quality food. Also since your Dane is an adult you don't need to watch calcium/phoshorous levels any more.

      Hi, thank-you for the advice. I attempted a slow switch to Fromm salmon but she won't eat that either. I can't find a food here in Canada that I feel good about feeding her. She LOVED Chicken Soup For the Soul but I can't get that anymore. I was ready to change her to Acana, but that has steel-cut oats as the second ingredient. I am at a total loss for dog food - so many kinds but I don't like the ingredients in most of them - maybe I am just being too fussy.

        Unless you want to stick with salmon maybe try another flavor of Fromm. Mine’s been on the Fromm Beef Fritatta & the Pork & Peas for about 6 years.
