    I merged the two topics as I was getting confused, thinking "I know I replied to this topic!" and realized there was two.

    Nice feed back. Its sad but I think its her food.. Its pretty expensive food for her not to like.... I give her carrots and yogurt from time to time... I just bought her some grain free treats and if it doesnt change in the next couple of days im going to go back to Nutro Ultra puppy food and hopefully this helps. She is not vommitting or doesnt have any diaherra or anything..

    Shes pretty good about not eating stuff off the ground. She is so high maintainced.

    @Dan75208: I have two girls, almost 8 months old. I feed Nature's Variety Prairie. Did you mean Nature's VARIETY or is there a Nature's Valley Prairie too. Anyway, my girls eat am and pm. I mix in something with their food. Not to entice them to eat, but just for variety. In the morning they get a big tablespoon of cottage cheese, plain yogart, or canned pumpkin, or some banana smashed up. They always dive right in and eat it all. I wonder if Marley would eat better if you added something to her food like I do? I really like Nature's Variety Prairie, I've fed this since the girls came home. I feed chicken tho, I haven't tried the lamb.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    Nutro Ultra Puppy is not recommended, it is a very low grade food that is full of fillers. Check out the dog food ratings when you get some time. Perhaps she just does not like the food you are feeding, or it has gone sour.

    My Silva never eats her food all day! I put her food out at 8 am and she eats between 7-8 pm every night but she has always been like this except when she was a baby pup. Her weight is good and she is healthy. I just figured this was her rountine and havent done anything to change it. Are you noticing any other changes, has your rountine changed?

    Why do you think that your dog is not eating enough? You say you give 1 1/2 scoops. How much is in each scoop. How many cups, eight ounce cups? Is your dog lethargic? Is she too thin? Can you see her ribs? You are feeding a very good food. Please do not go back to Nutro. It is garbage. Since Nature's Variety is a much higher quality food than Nutro, she SHOULD eat much less of it than he did of Nutro. It is so easy to overfeed a dog. My guess is that she is eating enough. If she is no lethargic and not too thin, don't worry.

    I havent changed her feeding time at all and I try to keep her on the same routine. I put the food down and she doesnt even sniff it because she knows so doesnt like it. Yesterday I threw in some yogurt and she ate it up fast. She eats total about 1 1/2 scoops a day and I still give her some doggie treats. I think im going to go with the chicken meal next instead of the lamb. I might just have to entice her until I get a new bag of food.

    She is not skinny and my vet said that she was the most healthist bulldog shes over seen because she is not over weight.



    Sorry she does eat Nature Variety Lamb and Oatmeal
