Wet food is not a good diet for Boxers thier digestive system works so fast the wet food shoots on thru very little stays with them. If you want your puppy to grow correctly then I suggest mixing the wet food with kibble Purina makes puppy chicken and rice kibble and Royal Canin has a great Boxer puppy formula..The puppy needs trace minerals and other nutrients he is not getting with wet food it’s also terrible for the dental health.

I’ve never heard of Dr John’s but my advice is to find a pet food company that’s been in business for years with a good track record few recalls ect. I lost two dogs to grain free dog food so I would advise against that. I think Royal Canin is in the UK it’s a good food. I have always structured my dogs feeding times no free feeding. They get fed twice a day morning and evening i feed early in the morning at least 2 hrs before and activity so the stomach is not full when we are out doing excersise. One of my tricks if a dog is being picky take a little wet food zap it in the microwave just a couple seconds to warm it slightly make it smell good then mix on the kibble usually works. I dont use canned food at all anymore I cook ground turkey or chicken in big batches freeze what I don’t use right away and thaw in the fridge as I need it then mix on their dry. My dogs never look skinny they are the proper weight.
