Tired of food?

Postby Besonbully » Fri Jun 15, 2012 4:26 pm

Do dogs get tired of eating the same food? My pittie has been on taste of the wild for the first three years of his life. I've rotated favors and he's always loved it. Over the last couple weeks I've notice his disinterest in the food. Today I game him our other dogs vegan hypo allergenic dog food and he went through loads of it. If I'm forced to change foods can you suggest some similar alternatives to that TOTW? I love what it does to his coat. Thanks

Several people here are switching to Earthborn Holistic from TOTW. I haven't been able to find it in my area though, although I did see it online.
That's odd that he suddenly doesn't like it, does he seem okay otherwise?

I wonder if there was something wrong with that bag of food?

My Mom had something similar happen with her cats - exact same food they always ate and none of them would eat the food out of a new bag. She took it back to the store, got her money back, got another bag from a different 'batch' and they ate it.

I was wondering that too, especially with all the recalls. I remember a really sad article in Bark about the aflo-toxin contamination in dog food (Diamond also) five-six years ago and how horrible the dog owners felt about trying to get their dogs to eat the food, not realizing there was something wrong with it.

I had to go back a page to find this post about TOTW being recalled due to samonella. Maybe you had one of those bags? viewtopic.php?f=5&t=153617

Looks as though my bag wasn't on the recall list but there must be something wrong with it.

What are other alternatives to TOTW that is similar or better in quality?
