    DefaultTips to make kibble more interesting?

    Hello everyone. Merry Christmas!

    I live in India with my 2 year old lab, Bonda. So far, he's mostly been on home-cooked beef and rice and Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream for a few months in between. But I thought his hair has been falling out more than before and his coat seemed dry and lustreless to me. Also, he seemed a bit skinny to me (although he weighs 35 kg; he's a tall fella). So I've switched from rice & beef to Solid Gold Sun Dancer for the past couple weeks. Solid Gold is the only quality dry food available where I live; TOTW used to be shipped in from the US but not anymore.

    Thing is, Bonda has been eating his Sun Dancer kibble pretty well for the past week or so but not as enthusiastically as I'd like him to. I sometimes soak it in warm water to soften it and add an egg or some chicken gravy to it sometimes, just to interest him more. Is it common for labs to get bored of eating the same kibble morning and night? Should I add/ sprinkle something on his kibble? Thanks in advance!

    how much dog food are you feeding? Rice and beef does not have/add much nutrition so if you are supplementing too much (feeding more rice/beef than kibble) he is not getting an appropriate diet.

    has he seen a vet lately to discuss?

    Hi. Thanks for replying.

    He was on more rice & beef than kibble until a couple weeks ago when I made it almost always kibble with the occasional rice and beef. But I'm disappointed that he's not really gobbling up his kibble as I've seen some labs do.

    Yeah the vet told me his weight was perfect and suggested some amino acid supplements for his coat. He said dogs that are used to a wet diet (rice and beef) don't really prefer kibble very much. I don't know how right he is.
