    Default the boys and Fromm

    okay as you know from reading my post, or actually Oliver's post, last week, petflow screwed up my dog food order and I had to go to Petsmart and pick up a little bag of something to tide the boys over until my order from petflow came in. I picked Blue Wilderness grain free salmon and the duck flavors. The boys inhaled that food. Since I didn't have anything to help with the transition their was a little soft, but not too bad at all. It made it difficult to pick up when they had accidents in the house (which they are still having , but that's a whole nother thread).

    Anywhoo, now that their fromm order is here, they are just picking at it. Last night when I came home from class, I was told Oliver didn't eat his dinner at all and Sebastian left some in his bowl. I bought a bag of the beef frittata, which they've been on since switching them to fromm and I bought a bag of the surf and turf. The beef I give them at night since I squirt salmon oil on the evening food and figured I would give them the surf and turf for breakfast just to switch it up. This morning, both boys ate their breakfast right away, but still left probably half a cup in the bowl. I'm feeding them a cup twice a day.

    My question is "do you think they are getting burned out on the beef, and should I just switch them to the blue wilderness grain free since they seemed to like it so much?" I really like fromm because they helped clear up Oliver's tear stains so well, but they have come back in the last week or so, but I think his allergies must be kicking in because his eye (brown one) is always really runny and so is his nose.

    Any input would be helpful, thanks from a concerned mommy who only wants her babies to eat.

    I've thought about going RAW too. Tried it with a chicken leg quarter once and Sebastian choked on a piece and almost passed out before I could get to him. Scared the bejeebers out of me and haven't been brave enough to try it again. Right now with me not working because of school and my husband working two jobs and 3.5 kids to feed, not to mention 4 dogs, we can't afford to go RAW yet, but I told my husband someday.

    @JAKEISGREAT: too funny about giving Sherry, Jakes balls!! Give him smooches from us when he comes out of surgery.

    Mix a tablespoon of plain natural yogurt into their kibble..... that'll up their enthusiasm for the kibble.....it's also a probiotic . HRH gets yogurt every morning.

    I tried that with Sebastian when I first brought him home and I don't think he really liked the yogurt, because he wouldn't really eat. So I stopped. Never tried it with Oliver. Maybe, I'll try it again, thanks Bruce!
