I adopted an approximately 8 yr. old one-owner Akita last year and he is just wonderful. I have a real problem getting him to eat his dog food, though. He's been thoroughly checked out by our wonderful vet and nothing is wrong there. Does anyone have a problem getting their Akita to eat dog food without adding anything to it like beef or chicken? I have had to try different additives like cottage cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, tuna, beef chunks, chicken, turkey. I feed him the highest quality food and my other 2 dogs don't have a problem eating it. Toby was eating it w/stew beef and juice added to it; now he doesn't want that.
