    Default Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach Help!

    Was having loose stool issues a few months back and switched my 2yo YLM to it and within a week or 2 his stools have been normal. Everything was going fine until about the last week and a half and he has stopped eating it. When I switched him to the PP he would eat it up without leaving the bowl in the morning and evening. But as of last week or 2 he will eat a little bit then wander around the house like he doesnt like the food anymore. Has anyone had any problems with their dog not eating the food or changing to not like the taste? Any help would be great. He seems to love the Loyall active adult he was on but didnt set well with him stomach. Anyone tried the loyall lamb and rice?

    We just switched one of our BLM to this formula trying to get a head of a chronic ear infection. There have been no issues other than a darker stool because the food is so much darker. We have been feeding it for over a month.

    We have fed two different dogs Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach and they both love it. No problems with appetite, etc. Both dogs have been on it for a while. One male has eaten it for over a year.

    The food has been great for his stomach and his coat looks good too. Just having some issues with him not wanting to eat it like he doesnt like the taste or maybe he is just being picky.

    I switched to the same PP because my BLM was having loose stool with the food I was feeding. he has done great on it but I have actually had to cut back on the amount I am feeding compared to the old food and we train at least five days a week.

    He will eat when he gets hungry is the saying. Does this work or will he starve himself unless you switch? Some dogs just have to be switched around.
