Wag.com u get 25 percent off your first food order. If they deliver to Portugal might be worth it to make one large order. I am not sure if they do though. Also I just got a cookbook on making your own healthy dog food... But I have never had a puppy that young.

Unfortunately they don't deliver to Portugal.

I soaked the food and she ate it!

Even though I agree is not a great food, if thats what you can afford, then so be it. Many of dogs have grown up on Purina in my day and they were just fine.

Thanks, what about Eukanuba? I heard great things about it and it's on the budget I made for my pets.

Here's a website to check out. It rates the most popular dog foods. See whats in your budget and check the brand on the website and then go from there.

Someone on this forum once said. "Feed the best food you can afford". I forget who it was, but I have to agree with them.

Nothing wrong with cooking for your dog or a raw diet. Take a look around and do some research. this might be an option for you.

Puppies can get ill quickly. If you cant' get her to eat, take her in to be safe It may be she is just being picky but better safe than sorry.

Yes thank you I agree. After soaking the food and adding some cheese (she loves it, that's the treat I use to train her) she finally ate the food. I used the clicker whenever she started to eat.

I'm going to change from Purina to Criadores, a portuguese premium food that only contains natural products (Its even safe to be eaten by humans as it is stated in the website) which has 5 star reviews and since it can only be ordered online it has extremely good prices. I've seen people changing from Royal Canin to Criadores.

As far as I know TiendAnimal only sells it to Spain and Portugal but you can always check (they provide with a free 250gm preview of the product if you want to check it out first).
