Default THK question and my experience

Was at the pet store over the week end picking up some food and the nice lady there noticed I was reading the THK boxes and offered me a few samples.
She gave me a sample of Force and Verve so I was kinda excited to try it out since its much cheaper than ZP. So I got home and mixed it up according to the directions and let them have it I was really optimistic at this point. Well Peebo walks up to it sniffs it takes a lick and walks away so I was like ok may its just new and he isn't used to the texture or smell so I gave it to Princess she basically did the same thing but she took a good mouthful and than for lack of a better phrase spit it out all over the floor!
I left it on the floor for a bit to see if they would come back and eat it but a funny thing happened, our cat Ash who hates all food and baths loved it! He ate the whole bowl and was looking for more so I guess for my family THK bombed with the dogs but my cat seems to love it so I will look into getting some for him.
I still have a bag left of the Verve so I might give that a try tonight and see if I have some luck.
Does anyone have an issue with your little ones NOT eating THK? If so how did you get them to eat? are mine spoiled? seems like a good food great list of ingredients and its reasonably priced compared to ZP.

I had issues at first. Both of mine turned their nose up at it the first time. The second time Roo tasted a bit, but didn't want any more. Pip still wouldn't try it. I think it was the texture possibly that they were unsure about. Now they absolutely LOVE it. They run around and vibrate with excitement while they're waiting for it. Go figure. So... I would persist for a bit before you decide it's a definite no go.

Hmm I might give that a try maybe some chicken would make it more appealing or some M&M's! j/k I am off in a few minutes so lets see how it goes its funny because Peebo eats anything I have never seen him turn down food.

I wouldn't make the whole sample up, maybe just try a spoon full and see how it goes. Then the next day the same etc.

Yes. Equal parts usually works perfectly.
