    Default Samson has lost his appetite =(

    And I'm not sure what to do. He recently just finished a 10 day anti-biotic for an infection he had, which is a known side-effect. But since then he hasnt been eating his Fromm Salmon and Rice. I tried added yogurt, nothing. I tried adding cheese, he only eats the cheese. He will still eat his favorite snack green beans as well as the training treats and that's about it. Cheese, training treats, and green beans. I'm not sure what to do, he definitely still has ALL of his energy and loves to play. Before this, Samson would not even leave a drop of food left in his bowl. Any suggestions?

    Buddy does that, he used to scarf up his food and about 4 months ago became real picky about what he eats. We feed FROMM also and he will not eat the Salmond at all, the one he will eat now is Pork and applesause. He picks at it sometime will not eat in the morning and will eat almost all of it at night. i don't know why he does it but his weight is fine and the vet said he is a good weight and looks fine, so who knows.

    I have to say, the last few weeks on kibble, mine would barely eat it and it was Fromm which they LOVED. All three of them decided they didn't want it at the same time. I was wondering if maybe it went bad or something...

    I have 2 dogs who do this when their allergies act up. One bulldog one not. One will do what yours is and only eat anything but kibble and my bully won't eat anything. Try a pepcid ac 10mg or if you give benadryl or other anti-histamine try that or I have given mine both. The pepcid is usually enough to get them eating. If not then they maybe he is tired of the food. Hope he starts eating soon.

    I don't have experience with this either, but have you thought of trying a different flavour of Fromm? I know they're interchangeable so new flavours don't need to be slowly transitioned. I wonder if he's already sick of the food, which isn't unheard of.
