If you are thinking of changing I am a huge fan of Markus Muhrle Natur Nahr.

I also saw a tv add for https://tails.com/ they claim to blend the kibble they use to suit your dog. Their website asks questions about your dog and then uses your answers to tailor the kibble blend.

I've not tried it as I'm so happy with MM but their website looks interesting and you get a free trial.

I have a feeling it may be because he is getting too much as should now be on adult portions. If it was just one flavour he was turning his nose up then maybe it could be that he just doesn't like it however at least two flavours have been tried.


They have a good amount of different foods in their range with lots of tasty meats so should hopefully be something there to suit. Every dog is different of course and one may like something that another doesn't, it's only natural.

James wellbeloved is an ok food but it appears to contain as much rice as it does meat which I wasn't keen on and not very inspiring flavours.

I had a leaflet put through the door when they first started and had a quick look at it, I wasn't that impressed with it. It's very expensive for a not so good food

Never thought to check allaboutdogfood. Yeah bin that that the tails suggestion.

I did go through the questions on the site and they did seem valid questions but I never went for the trial as I will only feed cold pressed kibble now.

Thanks all for your advice

I haven't had a chance to call them today as I'm at work, but I put a smaller portion down this morning and he took one or two kibbles and walked away. He even rejects it when I put it in his large kong for a change (the dispenser type)

I'll see what happens over the next day or so to give the annual jab a chance to settle in and see how he is then.

I hadn't considered it may be his molars Pam what age does this usually happen?

I'm not sure - is it about 7-9 months? How old is your boy?

Hes 14 months now so think we can rule that out

I'm going to leave it for a couple of days and if it carry's on I'll start to look at an alternative food but I don't want to encourage a fussy eater if that makes sense.

Just been looking at Growling Tums has anyone heard of this one, looks quite good

The flavours sound nice I had a quick nosey and found this, not sure if same food as different name but certainly same flavours and packaging

Interesting reviews at the bottom by users (if it's the same food though) but it looks as though it's sold with different names, at least 3.

My labs have been eating Eukanuba for about 3 years now all together. It's definitely my personal favorite - it was my vet's recommendation, and it has surpassed my expectations. Best dog food, in my opinion. I originally got it because it is gentle on my dogs' sensitive stomachs, but it's good for any dog, really. It has an excellent blend of proteins and vitamins, and my dogs certainly seem to like it It's available most places that sell dog food.
