When I got my pup she was on asda heroes from breeder.

We started her off on butchers grain free puppy and slowly weaned her onto naturediet puppy.

For a while she wouldnt eat it unless a spoon of butchers was mixed in then she started eating nature diet alone for the last fortnight.

The last few days she just doesn't want it.

She is her usual self. Full of beans. Eating treats but doesn't want her food.

Should I try something else? Or just let her have a spoon of butchers mixed in?

My dogs didn't like Naturediet as much as others I've tried. Maybe try others to see what she likes? Forthglade?

Forthglade is £6 dearer though for same amount.

I chose naturediet as it was 13.99 for 18 x 400g on fetch and seemed most cost effective.

She's already tried wainwrights, tails, AVA.

She s so fussy sad

Unfortunately some dogs are fussy and you can't really do anything about it, except find something they like.

Oh sorry didn't know it was that much dearer! But I would try something else.

My puppy was like this, in the end we had to mix her dry with wet. We also found putting her dry in the kong and sealing the end with wet helped her eat more too.
We also would give her the occasional raw treat such as a duck wing to supplement her diet.

Some dogs are just fussy and won't eaten certain foods.

If she won't eat it you'll need to find something else, it's a case of trial and error really. Mine loves most things but actually does very well on Sainsbury's own.
