Hallelujah! My picky eater likes Sojos Beef formula. Like is not the right word. He LOVES IT!!!!
Monty is almost 2 years old and we've always had at least 4 open bags of different dog food since he is such a picky eater. Treat? Yes, anytime. Regular food? Not unless there is a topping on it. He is 79 pounds, heavy as a log, but not overweight. He eats 3 cups of kibble a day at most. There are days he would eat less. I know it was said that a dog won't let itself starve, but doodle moms, be honest here. Doesn't it just keep you concerned if your fur baby leaves the bowl half full every day?
We went through Solid Gold, Blue Buffalo, Wellness, TOTW, several other brands that I can't remember. There were bags that we started, never finished, and "donated" to his BFF from a dog park (by the way, she is 20 pounds lighter than Monty and eats 6 cups!!! a day). We recently discovered Acana. Monty liked Acana. In fact, he liked every new food introduced, but Acana seems to resonate longer with him. Of course, there have to be toppings. Anything from cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, organic goat milk.... Then I started buying little raw Natural Balance patties and mushing one into his kibble at mealtime. He loved it. Another victory!
Then I read about Honest Kitchen and how it helped some doods here with loose stool. Monty gets diarrhea at least once a month. Out of a blue. So we got a box. It was the first food he was not excited about when I mixed it in with his Acana. Must have looked like horse feed to him, LOL. But he got used to it (after I added salmon oil and some toppings to the bowl).
A couple of weeks ago I got a sample of Sojos Beef. He literally licked the bowl clean. To me, it smelled and looked like a soup that I could eat. :-) Excited about what I witnessed, I ordered a bag. It came in the mail on Monday and ever since then, Monty's bowl is shining clean after each mealtime. Yay! I just mix a couple of spoon-fulls with a regular serving of his Acana kibble and it's all gone in a matter of seconds. No hesitation at all! And by the way, his poop is perfect!It makes me so happy to see him being excited about his food, and in addition, the food is also good for his health! What more can a doodle mom want?
Ahhh, perhaps the search for the perfect food for my picky eater is FINALLY over! I should be more careful here so that I don't jinx it, but here goes: Yay Sojos!
