Labrador Pup off his food

First time lab owner and poster! Sussex pup has gone off his food - he is 5.5 months old and we are feeding him Honey's raw food. Up to now he has wolfed down what ever we have put down (and kept returning to see if his magical food bowl will refill), but for the last week he has barely nibbled it - but has been bouncing around as normal apart from a day of runny poo. We took him to the vet, who could find nothing wrong, and gave him some 'recovery food' which we have been mixing in to his normal food. He seemed to get his appetite back with that but now we are back to Honey's and he left his breakfast...... Any thoughts/experiences anyone can share?

My lab did this about the same age, she came from the rescue with wainwights, ate it no problem for a few weeks then just stopped. After lots of advice on here and research we put her on Millie's dry with Millie's wet mixed in and she's been on it ever since with no issues.

We tried raw, she ate it once but refused it after that...ended up cooking it for her!

Our younger one regularly goes off his food and we change brand and then he's keen again for a while, we just have to mix it up. His mother will eat anything and everything at any time.

Ours was picky until we got another dog - that sorted her out. Is that an option? grin

Thanks for the suggestions! All rather annoying as we had just stocked the freezer up with a month's worth of the current food..... hey ho!

Still getting used to having the one - not sure my sanity (marriage) could survive another!

Keep trying him with the raw, if he's really hungry he will eat it!
