Hi guys,
Hope you are all well.
Buster has recently taken a dislike to his puppy food and treats. Is he simply getting too old for the puppy food and treats?
Buster is 10 months and is of normal size for his age.
Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks alot
Hannah and Buster xxx

Stop making me feel inferior Mandy you know I cant do that :hurt:
Yeh but I can't make my own barf - everytime I get a box out of the freezer I have visions of you mincing carcasses and lovingly steaming and grinding veggies while Wilf and Mabel cavort in the sunshine waiting for their home made dinner. All I did was copy and paste a URL...

10 months is a little old for him to still be on puppy food, how many times a day are you feeding him and how much.

what kind of treats are you using.

I agree Kendal - by this stage we would have our big puppies on an adult feeding regime (normally from about 6 months old). We feed a BARF diet to all our dogs - once a day.
We feed at night time (as opposed to morning) - as we fell that our dogs settle easier and sleep better on a full stomach.

Thanks for all your messages.

On our food it says you should feed him this food until he is 18 months. We also spoke to the guy at the pet store (where we buy the food) and he said that he would be fine on it until 18 months. He eats dry food and not wet.

What food does your doggies eat? xxx

Changed Scamp from puppy to adult at 9 mths, the smaller puppy bits just meant he was like a hoover, almost sucking it up, no crunching involved !!
He now takes longer to eat it, they both have breakfast and an evening meal, with treats in between.:)
