Picky Eater

Beckett has always been a avid eater. He's been the one I've had the least problems with as far as food goes. If its near his mouth he considered it food and would scarf it down. But after starting him on his SLO meds (Vitamin E, Omega-3, Niacin, and Doxicycline) he has become a super picky eater. If i make his food the same way for two days in a row he'll just smell it and walk away. I've started putting in pro plan wet food mixed with his regular food (and he always and without fail goes nuts for it.) But at 1.49 a can its more of a stop gap than a permanent solution. I've also bought some regular gravy to mix in and some bottled gravy from Pets Mart and the same thing. Ate it well for a few days then ignored it. Any Ideas on how I can get him eating regularly without breaking the bank?

Have you tried mixing in some scrambled eggs? You can make those up and store in the frig - they don't even have to be warm - hounds will usually chow down on those pretty quick.

If he likes the canned food you can add only a small amount (1-2 tbsp) and then add some warm water to make a gravy. That way it still has the smell, which is usually what dogs go on rather than taste. This way you only go through a few cans per week. Also, if you really want you can easily make your own (healthier and cheaper) stock by boiling some cheap chicken parts in a big pot of water. You can freeze it and it lasts forever.
