Our Stella just doesnt eat as much if we feed her straight dry kibble (Canidae ALS). However, If we mix in an egg or something...she wolfs it down, no problem. Even if we wet it..she won't eat it all. I am trying to get her to eat 2 cups a day per the bag instructions. She is 12 weeks / ~17lb.

Fredo eats plain kibble now (dick van pattens) but when he was that age he wouldn't eat it unless I wet it first. It's probably just the mushiness she's looking for.

I get panicy when Ashley won't eat for a day or so too.. I went and got the "Vita-gravy", and even if I pour a capfull on her dry kibble...she thinks she is in heaven.. I suppose I am a worrier...the vet says, just like people..she WILL eat when she is hungry enough..oh well.I don't go to bed with an empy tummy, so I try my HARDEST to get something in her too!
Probably setting her up to be a chunker like her Sire was..all 110 lbs of him!!

DANG! 110lb boxer. Badass. Yeah..we are gonna mix in a *little* ground turkey tonight. Stella is the same way about mix-ins. I guess she is just spoiled already.

LOL..thats what DH said about "Jack the Ripper" ( Ashley's sire ) when he saw him..nothing but muscle though..he is the AKC end of the mix..Dam was WKC..SHE was 65 lbs... I almost died when that boy came out of the house..and DH went backward toward the car...he was just a big-ol-Lovebug though..Don't know why they called him such a scary name!!

I mix in yogurt every morning and sometimes I mix in other things at night.  An egg or whatever we had for dinner....hamburger, roast, turkey that kind of thing.  They are spoiled too Duke didn't eat much of his breakfast because I was in a hurry this morning and didn't put in the yogurt...I had to stop and put some in just so he would finish eating....they are spoiled.

I do kibble and yogurt every feeding (2X a day). And then I do an egg twice a week which we will up that now. Just didn't want to overwhelm her belly. We did pumpkin there for awhile for her diahrea but we used it for a good week because she liked it. But we are in the middle of trying to figure out a better food for her so we don't want to throw so much at her at once.

my two eat just kibble. I do throw in an occasional egg (I try to do it at least once a week) but they have no problem eating without added goodies.

Mine eat plain kibble.  It took awhile to find one that my youngest would eat plain as is, but I have found one.  I occasionally use an egg a couple times a week or so.

You can also use some low salt broth diluted. I used to give that when we first got Angel as we weren't giving her any extras right away. I'll do the same with Flick
