Not eating her food

Okay so let me start with the background info. I went on deployment in August and left Ellie with my parents in July until last week. She was eating just fine with them especially because they always beefed up her food with scraps (I donít approve). She ran out of food about a week before I got her back but my mom bought the wrong food. She has been on Fromm four star line for about two years now and my mom bought just regular adult grain free because they were out of the four star line. She ate Monday morning and some
Monday night both times there was table scraps in her bowl. Since the drive (Monday night) she hasnít eaten. Iíve tried to spice up the food but she wonít touch it. Other than not eating she is her normal self. Playful, protective of the apartment, curious, cuddly and loving. Weíve gone to the park the whole week and we play inside and do just basic refresher training (stay, speak, sit) to keep her interactive throughout the day and she loves it. Still not eating!! But she has been drinking her water. Should I bite the bullet and go get the right food? Or wait it out since she wonít starve herself?

You may find this post from Magwart in another refusing to eat thread that will help you decide:

The other posts in the thread also give some suggestions on adding other food to the kibble to entice eating.
