I'm going to give it a few more days- if still the same, then I'll call chewy to get a different brand. I was feeding Penny Canine Caviar (highly rated, yet not well know ) and she really liked it and did very well in it. I might go back to them.
    That food is an "alkalined based" food. Single protein, but might be good to look into if your baby it gettin UTI's. I did a 10-wk pH challenge with them and Penny was very acidic- through the weeks, her acidity lowered and her pH was within a normal range.
    The only reason I switched was I was giving Lockjaw Acana, and I think Acana was a little cheaper, so I figured I would see how Penny did on that. But now, I might be going back to Canine Caviar.

    You know I think that you are spot on about the weather... my pups don't seem to want to eat as much, and I'm fine w/that. I don't like to eat a lot when it's hot as well.

    I really like it. Some of their formulas are pretty pricey- but the food is very good. It's also a "small" kibble which I think Penny enjoyed more too. Lol

    Thank y'all so much for your help. I think I will try the Acana Duck and Pear. If that's not working I'll try different singles protein. Stella isn't a picky eater. They love about anything I give them. We are getting an Ultrasound on Friday to rule out anything like stones. We had allergy testing done awhile back and she mainly had environmental allergies. No food allergies. I didn't want to put her on allergy shots so I try to control it with food and Apoquel. A pet nutritionist made a couple of recipes for Stella and she lost too much weight on home cooking. We put her back on dry kibble and she gained her weight back.

    Castor has tried both Acana and Orijen and they are very good foods. They used to be a bit too rich for him, though, but the last months he's done really well on Orijen adult (I think it's called - blue bag) and we add some dried carrots for his tummy. He actually does much better on Orijen than on raw (which I hate to admit as raw seems more natural than to buy bags of kibble that have been shipped across the Atlantic...)

    The Orijen food "blue bag" is it the original or the freeze dried?

    the one I'm speaking of (and I think Castors mom too) is the 'original' .... it is not a single source of protein
