I have a 5 month old that has started to not eat his food. This started about a week ago, and nothing has really changed, he has been on the same food, having the same portion, and on the same feeding schedule since we got him at 9 weeks, the only thing that we have changed since we got him was the potion of course, but its been the same for a couple of months now. Before last week he would eat his good quickly after me placing it on the floor, and now he will smell it, go and drink some water instead, then comes back and slowly eats 1/4 to 1/2 of his food and leaves the rest there.
If I hand feed it to him or hold his bowl up to him and ask him to eat he will eat the remaining food but I think he just does so out of respect at that point.
Last night I went out and bought a bag of Wellness Super5Mix Puppy Health LBP to see if maybe he just got tired of what he was eating. He is currently on Blue Buffalo chicken and rice LBP food. This morning I put about 20% Wellness and 80% BB just to gradually change him over.
Has any of your dogs ever done this before? Do you think he just got tired of eating the same thing and wants something different or is it something worse and he might be sick? I don't think he is sick because I haven't noticed any mood changes or loss of energy.
Any advise is very appreciated. And I am very sorry for the long post.
