4 months old - time to change food?

April 6th, 2007, 12:35 PM
I own a 6 pound Schnauzer/Poodle Mix. She's about 4 months old right now. She has recently started to eat less of her dog food. She's in great health and has loads of energy.

However, I would like to see her eat more. She refuses to eat more than twice a day. Once in the Morning and once at Night, and she won't eat as much as she oce did. I'm currently using Nutrience Small Breed Puppy Food [ For Dogs up to 9 Months ] .

I'm thinking I'll have to switch brands in order to get her to eat more. She's always up to eating a treat, or if she was allowed, human food.

Perhaps she needs a tastier brand? Maybe her pallet is becoming a little more discriminating? Any Suggestions?

Nutrience is not a very good dog food. I would definitely consider switching brands. Canidae is the most economical of the premium brands. Another good choice is Innova.
