8 week old not eating all of food

We just got out beautiful 8 week old blue nose on tues. She will be 9 weeks old in a couple of day. She is 15lbs and the breeder has been feeding her inuk shuk 32/32 adult food. She is only eating about 3/4 a day and doesn't show much interest. Everything g else with her is great playing,sleeping and training.

I plan to switch her over to orijen after I finished the bag of inuk shuk but may try sooner. My question is can I go straight to the adult food or do I need the puppy version?

Orijen is grain free and is all life stages. Also when switching it is best to mix old food with new to avoid yummy issues. So I would get a bag of new before you run out.

You don't HAVE to finish the old food. Most just go through the old then start transitioning about half way to a quarter until the old Is gone. Orijen is definitely a great food to feed too

Oreijan is a great kibble. They do have a kibble for puppies. I order mine off of chewy.com and get a 15lb bag for around $45. I totally think it's worth it.

Just ordered the orijen puppy food. I will start sprinkling it in little by little. Hopefully she likes this food a little better. Do any of you guys do the autoship? I did it for 6 weeks so we will see how fast it goes.

Little update. After about 10 days I have finally switched her over without one loose stool. Since she has switched over she in hails her food 3 times a day. Glad I didn't wait to switch her over.

P.s weight update she is about 21lbs at just shy of 11 weeks and you still see how she tapers down in the back by her hips. Oh boy she is going to be a big one lol

I also have been drizzling a little olive oil maybe a few times a week on her food and gave her an egg the other day. Any other healthy foods I can slip her every now and again? I'm guessing some raw meats when I'm cook and some raw scraps. Our last pitbull was on a raw only diet for a period of time and I don't think I'm going to go that route but wouldn't mind giving a treat every so often

Glad the switch went well. She is still young for supplements I don't know what age to tart using them. Never thought of it as I discovered them in response to my boy having a problem that the supplement was needed for lol

Dausaquin is a joint supplement
Bee pollen for allergies and joints and skin and coat And to a of things
Honey for allergies
Apple cider vinegar for a leaky eye and flea prevention
Pumpkin purée to keep the dog regular not too hard or soft.
Coconut oil or fish oil for skin and coat

Can't think of what else I know people have used in the past but that's some things you can try. Don't change al at once.
