    Default Puppy doesn't want to eat

    Hello all,

    Swagger recentl hit the 10 month mark however we have been noticing within the past month that he hasn't wanted to eat that much. We've been feeding him Blue Buffallo grain free, he usualy doesnt touch his breakfast and at the end of the day will eat some of his dinner. I have been cooking some chicken brest and putting it with it and he usually devoures it which makes me think that he doesn't like the food itself. Anyone have a simular problem or can offer a good solution?

    I am not much help, but is he acting normal other than not eating unless you put chicken on top? If so he may just be bored with the food. I am sure someone with more knowledge than me will be along soon.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    He plays normally, but he is a bit spoiled. The chicken thing is more or a once in a while thing. Hes very muscular and lean, so i wish he'd eat more. Maybe time to try new food

    I have had two picky eaters, and had to change their food to find one they liked and agreed with them. I also will add a little Bil Jac, the frozen kind (I know, it's not that good of a food, but a little won't hurt) to their food and they scarf it up.

Switched to blue buffalo and neither of them are crazy about it...one will eat most of it, the other barely at all...but give them chicken and rice and they have no problem! Just ordered fromms puppy in the pink bag that everyone suggests...... can't wait to try that....will let you know..picky eaters!
