Also she's getting more exercise now that I can give her long walks at the park, so that's probably helping her appetite, too. I think the frustration was that she knew I wanted her to eat, but she just wasn't hungry because her body wasn't prepared to eat. Yesterday, she ate all of her food except some crunchies left over from that morning, so I opened the door to the crate and she finished the crunchies before leaving. I think whatever I've done, it's worked.

If you do decide to switch, here is another suggestion for Wellness. It's a great brand. Eukanuba isn't really a "great" food. If you came to my store, I'd steer you away from it. It's a very long "grand tour of the pet foods" story why. But, it's not something I'd feed my dogs.

Could you tell me why it's not a great brand? I'm happy to listen.

Eukanuba; Eukanuba Dog Food | Review and Rating

Wellness; Wellness Core Dog Food | Review and Rating

Eukanuba is vegetable based more than meat, and is not grain free. The third ingredient in it is corn based, corm has been implicated in countless digestive and allergy related issues with dogs.

Ugh, no kidding. My dog was allergic to corn; it made him itchy and then he got hotspots. He'd scratch himself raw

Well you all seem to like it so much, so I'll keep my eye out for wellness. Eukanuba is the only brand my big dogs (not Grace) can eat without getting sick, though.
