    Try topping his food off with wet stuff from a can of whatever it is you're feeding. For example - if you're feeding Blue Buffalo Wilderness kibbles, then take a Wilderness canned version and top off his kibbles with a bit of the canned stuff. You don't need much, just mix it in with the kibbles.

    Did you try topping with a bit of Grizzly Salmon oil or some coconut oil? Lola won't eat her kibble unless I mix some in.

    From what I have read about cheap dog food, they sprayed with unhealthy animals fats so that your pet would look them.
    I am curious. Did u tried switching slowly to the new food? Like 75% first and so on.

    You could try to add some warm water or warm chicken broth? Well that is unless he's allergic to chicken, try the beef broth?!!

    Hmm… have you tried giving him a bland diet of rice and chicken? Or some people use ground beef/sirloin? Our pet stores also carry the fresh patties, and I have used them on occasions… I'm going to tag some members that may be able to help out. Have you talked to your vet about this?!! Just wondering if something is going on besides bully stubbornness… LOL

    I forgot to ask… is this a puppy or an older dog? Rescue?!!

    Thing is, a og will eventually eat when they are hungry... pick a food and stay with it. Place the bowl down and leve it for 20 mins at a time. also, if I remember, you obtained him from another home, right? he may not be settled in yet and still a little nervous.

    How old is he? When did you get him? When we first got Blue, he wouldn't eat either. Had to hand feed him for a looong time.

    If you've tried everything, toppers, mixers, dry kibble, wet food and nothing works, then maybe he has an exquisite palate, that requires a more refined dining experience? How 'bout Raw or home cooking?

    It is very unusual for a healthy bulldog to not want to eat! It sounds like he needs to be taken to your veterinarian for a check up-there could be a problem. Especially if it is a pup! Unless, you have fed him table food, too many treats, or scraps. If mine refused one meal...MAYBE two-they would be right to the Vet. I know an "only dog" can be alot pickier-but he still should want to eat-even if he "picks".
