Jimmy answers:

It is very important you switch him to puppy food. Puppies need different nutrients than adult dogs, such as more protein. If he doesn’t get the proper nutrition now, he will likely have health problems in the future. Having said that, not all brands of dog food are the same. If it is something you can buy in a grocery store or a place like Target or Walmart, it is a very low-quality food. These are brands like Pedigree, Iams, Cesar, anything made by Purina (beneful, kibbles n’bits, one, pro plan, alpo, etc) or store brands just to name a few. Even Science Diet and Eukanuba are not good. Foods like these are full of corn, soy, by-products, and fillers. Dogs cannot digest these well and they are main causes of food allergies. Dogs cannot get the nutrition they need to sustain a long and healthy life from these foods and it has been shown that on average feeding foods like these can actually shorten your dogs life and cause more health problems.

High quality foods may seem more expensive but because they have better ingredients, you won’t have to feed your dog as much to get the proper nutrition so it actually equals out or it may even be cheaper. I feed my dog Wellness Super5Mix and he eats about 2/3 cup a day (1/3 in the morning, 1/3 in the evening. He’s 12 lbs). Compare that to the recommended 1 1/4 cups he would need to eat of Pedigree or Beneful! That’s a big difference.He also loves the Old Mother Hubbard biscuits for treats. As occasional treats you can also give them carrots, eggs (I recommend cooked to avoid things like salmonella), apple slices (no core/seeds), and cooked or boiled chicken or meats (without sauces or seasonings). Don’t feed too many treats though, they should only make up 10% or less of your dog’s diet.

There is also the option of feeding a “RAW” or “B.A.R.F.” diet. They are healthy IF you know what your doing. It will require a lot of good research if you choose these (sorry, I don’t know much about them other than they shouldn’t contain anything artificial or fillers because usually you make them yourself) .

Here is a websites I find especially helpful in choosing a high quality food. The foods are rated based on the quality of their ingredients (6 is the highest, 1 is the lowest. Choose something that is rated at least a 4):

When changing to the new food, you should mix it with the old food for a week so he can get use to the new food. Do something like this:
Days 1&2: 75% old 25% new
Days 3&4: 50% old 50% new
Days 5&6: 25% old 75% new
Day7: all new food

Laura asks…

My dog is not eating.

My dog isn’t eating the food I put out for him. It’s the same food that I have been feeding him.

Do you think he’ll find the food more attractive if I put IAMS Savory Sauce?
Is there something I should put in the food for him to make him eat it?
I’m a new dog owner. The dog has been eating prefect the past few days.

Jimmy answers:

Sometimes animals will eat whatever you put in front of them if they are hungry,but as they are fed more often,they can start to become finicky.about their food.
