Are you kidding??

Granted, my girls do not get that as an option.
Oh Karen, I wish I was joking, sadly I'm not. I watched a little of your video but had to stop because it frustrated me so much. That's exactly how all my dogs have ever eaten, including my current Mastiffs.

I should video mine for you when I call them up, "Nom noms, who wants nom noms" ... they all come galloping like a herd of turtles. They're all sitting, I put the bowls down, say, "Eat it" they go up to the bowls, sniff and walk away, a couple may take a square away, lay down and slowly think about eating it, the others couldn't care less.

Exactly the same reaction regardles of whether it's raw dinner, a fresh chicken wing or a fresher lamb rib i.e. I just put out 4 x ribs, only ONE of them has bothered to chew it, the others just look at it and wander away, so there they sit attracting flies until I throw them away or the dogs will decide to get them within the hour or so, otherwise in the bin or to the Mastiffs they go, sigh.

I tried the down for 15 minutes & take it away, but they'd starve!

Mine just aren't turned on by food, any food whatsoever is just boring to them, except my own dehydrated treats (liver, kidney, chicken fillet). Even Bully Sticks only get chewed on for a couple of minutes before being forgotten.

Just wanted to update to say that I did decide to switch back to Acana/raw for the time being, and the diarrhea disappeared within a day. However, I haven't given up hope! I did email Ziwipeak in September with Odie's info and how much she was eating, etc. and asked for their recommendations. I just received an email back the other day and they just asked how she was doing. Do you think it would be worth a shot to feed Acana for one meal and Ziwipeak venison for the other?

I think you'll find firm stools with lamb, I did. In fact, over here when starting out on ZiwiPeak, the importer will always tell buyers to start with lamb and then try the others, not the other way around.

Just ordered the lamb through our pet shop today! I've been sprinkling some of the venison on top of her kibble (mainly because I have a huge bag and it's way too much to use as treats!), and have given her a full meal of venison here and there. Her poops have been totally fine, so maybe she just needed a slow transition. She'll pick out all the pieces of ziwi and leave the kibble. She loves it! I'm going to try the lamb anyway though, just to be on the safe side. I'm excited.

Mylo is exactly the same. He walks up to the ZP, sniffs and walks away unless he's really hungry. He's better with the venison than venison and fish. I used to leave it down all day and it was fine before we got Willow. He's not like that with raw though! He used to eat more than recommended for a day and then eat less for two days (roughly).
