We have a new 9 week old boxer puppy. He seems to be rather picky when it comes to eating. I was wondering if anyone could tell me something we could mix with his food. He is currently eating Iams for puppies. He seems to like to just snack all of the time. The vet says he is growing fine and looks good. He just doesn't seem to be eating enough any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Iams it a terrable food. I tried it on my dogs and they all hated it. I would try getting him a better food and see if that helps. Also feed in the morning and at night. Give him the food and when he is done put it up till the next feeding. I have found that helps with the grazing. If they are hungry they will eat!
Feeding a puppy 3 times a day is ideal. There are alot of good holistic foods to choose from. Here is a link grading foods, and what is good/bad. California Natural, and Nature's Variety, and Innova Evo are also excellent choices.
Sorry I missed the 9 week old part! Yes three times a day is good for now. I change to twice a day at about 12 weeks. But they always seem to get some extra food from the kids lol. And I use boiled chicken for training thru out the day.
