If we don't mix with pate, he simply won't eat.

He often turns his nose up at meals, and frequently chooses to go hungry instead of eating. Many mornings, I'm trying to spoon feed him just to whet his appetite and get him to eat something! On average, he'll have 2-4 cups of dry kibble and 1/2 to 1 full can of pate, per day. It's often a chore to get him to eat. His vet is happy with his weight and he doesn't seem sick, he's just never had a voracious appetite like a typical dog.

The Earthborn Holistics is 31% protein, 13% fat, 4% fiber.

The only time we've had success with consistently formed poop was when he was briefly on a prescription Science Diet low fat kibble, and it's basically just fluff - rice and animal byproduct. He was eating 8+ cups of it a day just to get his nutrients!

For treats, he gets 1 greenie per day and a few Buckley branded treats (also grain free). We feed treats generally sparingly, as he has such a sensitive digestion.
