    Default Food boredom?

    So lately (past 3 days or so) Harleigh has needed some encouragement to eat her food. One of the thoughts we have had, is that she may be bored of the same thing twice a day every day. Does any one have any healthy suggestions to make her food more exciting?

    I never ever tought I would be asking this question.

    I feed her fromms puppy food (pink bag) with some yogurt. (She is 8 months old)

    Thinking of possibly mixing another food with her food, maybe adding some human food with hers. (She has had a taste of some left over meat).

    Suggestions please!!! Thank you!!!

    How timely! Bella has started doing the same thing pretty much. She is normally a vacuum, but the past few days she's been stopping mid-meal...sometimes going back to finish, sometimes not. She also eats much slower than usual. She eats Fromm puppy, as well.

    Since your pup is 8 months, I think you can start adult food. Once my Fromm puppy is gone (another month or so), I'm going to adult formula. Bella is 5 months old today.

    at 8 months you can switch to the adult line for fromm --- you can add green beans a spoon of plain Greek yogurt or cottage cheese

    Try a little warm water and add a drop or 2 of yogurt and see if that helps.

    Frankie has become bored with his food as well. We tried a different flavor of the same brand but he still is not eating well. I bought a can of wet food in the same brand of food he eats and will mix in with his kibble. Hopefully he will start to eat better.
    My smooshy face boy!

    Same with Brett. I don't wanna change his brand of food since he seems doing well with it. I give him yogurt and peanut butter. Is it ok to give fruits?

    I feed Ruckus the Fromm's grain free line and alternate between two different types of food for breakfast and dinner -- well 3 really but I only keep 2 in the house at a time. I buy Beef Frittata, Surf and Turf, or Lamb and Lentils. I also supplement his meals with different goodies like cottage cheese, plain yogurt, unseasoned cooked meat (lamb, beef, etc -- yeah he's my spoiled baby) and that keeps him interested. When I fed him just the pink bag puppy Fromm's I also felt he was getting bored.

    My bullies only have fruits and vegetables as treats, they love them. They eat a lot of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, cucumber, carrot and apple.

    Oops, I just posted this exact same topic! Mine seems to be getting bored. I started the plain greek yogurt and he will vacuum it up. He is currently at my father's and I forgot to give him the greek yogurt. He said he wasn't really interested in his food for the past two days.
    Ace! Come here boy...
    Ace just stares
