oh boy~ dex was on royal canin and cesar gourmet when he was a pup...when i didnt know any better about good brands of dog food out there...he has bad reactions to it as he kept pukin up chunks of it...and i didnt know why he was doing this until i found out just how low of a brand they both were...anywho after changin about 20 times worth of food...LOL
he now sticks with wellness core reduced fat...as hes 4 years old now. but KC when she came from the breeders they fed her FROMM which is a great brand but gave her a fishy breath from the puppy formula...and they even had to soften up te dry food with warm water for a few mins and serve...i did that for a while with her on wellness core puppy and she loved it...and still does
mebbe ur little fella knows that thats not the kind of food he wants at all! perhaps u can try changin to a higher star food and doing the soak method...and seeing if he'll eat that instead?
