When we've had this problem, we put a pinch of tuna to stimulate their senses and that usually worked. We mixed it in right with the food (less than a teaspoon full). If your dog is not allergic to chicken or beef you could perhaps try a pinch of that too. Good luck!

I use a little bit of the Blue Basic canned food to add to the food. I have small dogs so I just add a spoon full to each of their bowls and they are all over it.

many times i see people buy a new dog food and try to just feed it to the animal. YOU CANNOT DO THAT. The best way to get your animal accustomed to a new food is to mix small portions in with their old food.

its best to usually stretch it over a weeks time , if your change it too quickly it might upset the animals stomach and they'll have major diarrhea and/or throw up.

I suggest doing a 1/4 new food to 3/4 old food ratio
if the animal is acclimating very slowly to the new food do each ratio for two days
the next would be 1/2 new food to 1/2 old food
then its 3/4 new food to 1/4 old food
last day should be all new food
or you can throw in a few old kibble if you like

fractions are of how much your feeding your animal in total(feeding guidelines)
say you feed the animal 1 cup a day
it would be 1/4 new food to 3/4 old food measured in the one cup.

Donate the bag and buy him something he will like. When starting a new food it's best to buy a small bag at first that way the loss is smaller if your dog doesn't like it.

If he doesn't like it I wouldn't make him eat it. It's the same thing with you, would you eat something if you didn't like it? Unless your dog has allergies or other issues rotate his foods so he gets different proteins since each protein offers a different benefits. Also who wants to eat the same food day in and day out year after year.

Have you tried a topping, like Wellness 95% Salmon? The stink alone should be attractive to your pup.

Yes, I buy the 24# bag of Blue Basics for my dogs. If your local store does not carry the larger bags, ask the manager if they can order it for you, or you can order it on petco.com.

There is no rice in the Blue Buffalo Wilderness Salmon food. I feed that to my dog because he too has a food allergy, and since he has been on the Wilderness food his skin has completely cleared up. He does not have itchy red skin anymore.
