I have a tri-colored Basenji named Brody who is 9 months old. The sire is CH DJAKOMBA's RAVEN ROCKET MAN and DAM APEX SEVEN OF DJAKOMBA.
I started him on Candiae all life stages dog food (from breeder) when he was 3 months but by 7 months he didn't seem interested. When I switched him to Nutro chicken and brown rice he loved it. Devoured it in seconds and no issues. Here we are 2 months later and he is totally not into Nutro any longer. Will smell it, walk away, come back to eat a few kibble bits and leave it. Adding water has helped but he will never finish it. I will give him 20 minutes to eat and take it away..BUT then the bile throw-up happens because hes hungry. Dinner time he seems to eat better but NOT great (or close to where we were a couple months ago).
I've tried Merrick and Natural balance even looking at potatoes and meats and limited ingredients and same results. I even went back to Nutro (lamb) and still not interested.
I am just at a loss as now breakfast and dinner has become a nightmare. Even tried some mix-in turkey and pumpkin ingredients to make it look appetizing. His dinner looks better than mine some nights.. LOL.. Still fussy!
Anyone have a great kibble their basenji loves who have run into my struggles?
