    I have a 1 1/2 year old Cavalier that is such a finicky eater. On her last vet check-up he asked what she was eating and I told him she would not eat dog food. The recipe I used is fresh chicken, sweet potatoes, carrots baked in the oven with olive oil, fresh peas, and brown rice. This take so much time. He then told me he would like to see her eat half what I prepared and half dry dog food. We tried the new Freshpet dry food, currently only available at Target stores 50 miles away. Lo and behold, she gradually started eating the dry food except for the round ball shaped pieces. She would just let the food roll out of her mouth, like she didn’t know how to chew it. We also have a new Cav. puppy that currently eats Hill’s Science diet for puppies and occasionally the older one will eat that food. She’s still inconsistent and we’re hoping she will come around to something she likes. Our vet also said dogs do not variations in their dog food. Unlike humans, the dogs should stay with the same food. If anyone could suggest what they have found works for their finicky eaters, I would appreciate it. Thanks.
