TOTW for large breed puppy?
5 month old black lab has been on a large breed puppy food since he was 8 weeks old. Yesterday he decided he didn't really want it much at all, would nibble but was a task to get him to eat his full meal (which in all fairness is 2 cups 3X a day... no he is not even close to chubby... puppy is going to eat me out of a home). Prior to yesterday he'd gobble it up and be fine. It's not a new bag of puppy food, he's been eating off this bag for about a week a half. He did loose his to top large carnasal puppy teeth the day before that. Figured maybe the hard food just hurt to eat, so we tried wetting it down to soften it up. No dice. I will add that we are dealing with giardia (joy...), but we've been dealing with it for awhile and started a new treatment regime yesterday but not before the eating issue started.
Usually my husband feeds the puppy and then when I get up I feed the other dog and the cat. Other dog, a corgi, is on TOTW. Usually when I feed her I throw him a few pieces that scatter and he wonders around picking them up. Did that today and as usually he gobbled them up. So I threw out his soaked food which he hadn't eaten and mixed half cup TOTW and half cup his puppy, dry, and he woffed it down. I'm convinced it's his puppy food.
So large breed dog on TOTW? I looked up the nutritional info online and the protein is lower on the TOTW by like 3%, fat is higher by 2% and there is like a 0.2% higher difference on the calcium.
