My Puppy doesn't really like her Blue Buffalo food Help!!

Hi, greeting from NC, my 4 1/2 month old girl doesn't really like her food, i was feeding her the grain free food from Blue Buffalo but i switch it to al Large Breed food from the same company and since the switch she doesn't really like it and her stool is a little loose, she eats it because her instinct of not starving herself but everytime we are working with her in training sessions she loves the treats. and you can actually get her to do anything with food so i am concern and need an advice in terms of similar quality food and hopefully she will like it.

Perhaps there's something off about the formula? I know when my dogs refused to eat a particular brand, there was something wrong with it. That's a good possibility. The smell may also be displeasing to her. Any number of possibilities really.

I know most will probably suggest raw but I have had good luck with Fromm! I am feeding my pup the large breed puppy.

Where in NC are you from? I am from Morehead City, but live near Seattle now. I second Fromm. My puppys stools were very soft with canidae but since I switched to fromm LBP it is great and he loves it.

I feed Fromm as well and have had great results and both dogs love it, even my super picky poodle

Merrick is good, but I wouldn't touch RC - it's very expensive for the quality of food it is.

Orijin is another food with a great reputation

Durham...Home of my favorite team DUKE!!! It's kinda funny, my DH is a Carolina fan so it makes for a fun basketball season. I lived in Durham for about a year when I was a kid, when my mom got remarried. I am not sure if all Merrick foods are 5 star but I know they have a kind on PetAdvisor that is 5 star. I went with Fromm bc I like that they are a small family company and have never had recalls, not sure about Merrick. I miss southern food so much! Seattle has some places that try to imitate southern food but, doesn't have anything on my grandmothers cooking I wouldn't go with RC either, I wont use a food with corn in it.
