Gonšalo Bad news, Kia is not eating anything again. I tried to soak the food - nothing, mix some dog treats with her food - nothing. Basically she doesn't want to eat! She's driving me crazy and I'm desperate since she hasn't eat for 24 hours already, only the two treats that were in her food!

I already ordered the new food but it will take a few days to arrive. Remember that I'm from Portugal and it's not the same thing as the USA, if we want good dog food we have to order it from the internet because the stores only have horrible food!

Please help me! What should I do? Just keep insisting until she eats it?

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).

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.
