I usually mix tinned food with dried food but the last couple of days my boy wasn't eating it. I knew he was hungry because you could hear his tummy rumbling and I started getting worried so gave him just dried food with a bit of hot water which he also turned his nose up to so thought would try just a tin of food and he just scoffed all that down lol so should I just give him tinned food from now on? maybe he is bored of dried food and just prefers wet food? many thanks

I do the same as you Dan and give dry for breakfast with a half tin and dry for dinner. My girl does get bored with the same dry so we give a mixture of flavours, however, I think they get bored of dry anyway (Think I would too to be honest)

I have started adding a teaspoon of coconut oil to her dinner and she never turns her nose up then Smile

They can get bored, I don't use tinned so if Katy gets bored I mix her dry food with pilchards for a change Big Grin

As Ian says, i'd probably get bored with dried food too! Lots of good suggestions of ways to spice things up a little Smile I just feed wet food for Bug, she's never missed a meal but she's a little piggy! Though, even she wouldn't eat the dry food that they offered in kennels thumbs down We feed Wainwrights grain free, she does really well on it Big Grin

I would imagine just dry food is boring so I feed extras like cooked meat, fish and veggies. The vet has told me to only feed puppy food but feeding the extras is the only way i managed to increase Roccos weight. I feel that I'm feeding him healthily and the vet is happy with his weight now.

there's nothing wrong with giving a small amount of 'extras' such as cooked meat, fish and veg. try to make sure there isn't too much salt in them, though - if you cut the salt levels down it'll be healthier for rocco AND you!! Laughing

Hi folks. Is it OK to add sardines to my staffs dinner? He's no interest in his dry food on it's own. Thanks again folks.

Thank you. I meant to say would it be OK to add sardines to every meal for flavour? Thanks again.

I probably wouldn't do that for all his meals to be honest, he would probably get bored with that. I think it might be too much having oily fish every day! Try varying it with scrambled egg or low sodium stock as gravy, I also use 0 fat natural yogurt with Katy Smile
