STOPPED EATING HIS FOOD

I HAVE A MINATURE SCHNAUZER 9 MONTHS OLD AND VERY VERY CLEVER.
HE NORMALLY HAS DRIED DOG FOOD AND HAS STARTED TO TURN HIS NOSE UP AT IT. WE HAVE TRIED OTHER DOG FOODS BUT HE IS STILL NOT WANTING TO EAT.
HOWEVER IF I HAND FEED HIM THE DRIED FOOOD OR THROW IT ON THE KITCHEN FLOOR LIKE A GAME HE WILL EAT IT.
I AM AT A LOSS OF WHAT TO DO. HOPE YOU CAN HELP.

why dog is not eating
by: Anonymous

I have a 1 1/2 yr old mini schnauzer, named Schnitzel. he was doing the same thing, sticking his nose up at his dog food. we started giving him table food. that had to stop due to not being good for him. so after searching and trying different foods , we found blue diamond. he loves it. i take the dried chicken and mix with the different canned varieties. a bit expensive but worth it to know he is getting the correct amount of food and vitamins he needs.

Stopped eating...

If he's the only dog in the house, just leave his food out and he will eat when he gets hungry enough. Of course that doesn't work if you have more than one dog because the others will eat his food!

My schnauzer used to be picky until I started feeding him Natural Balance - Sweet Potato and Fish formula. It's a bit pricey, but well worth it because it's great for their skin and coat as well.

Good luck!
