My 3 month old English cocker spaniel doesnt eat his regular pedigree dry food.
He used to be very excited whenever I open the pack and all of a sudden he started displaying signs of disinterest. He will just sniff it and leave it. However,
when I add little water to it, he eats it ( he loves water a lot ) . Otherwise he eats that same food after few hours.
He is healthy , active and playful and no signs of distress or anything.
I have below questions can someone let me know what to do please
1: Should I change food to some other brand or go for wet diet?
2: How much water is so much for a dog of 3 months age ?
3: Can I add any toppers for his dry food to make it different for him ?
Right now am concerned about his food timings as he is not eating them on time
Not a expert in this but My german shephard puppy is 4 months old I always add water with N&D kibble..
I dont give him wet food anymore
Did you try adding a boiled egg to it?
Try taking some time to make it (act as if you are cooking it) he will think that its something new and interesting
Try this till you get a vet reply

Boredom does sometimes set in especially in individuals with selective appetites . You can continue to moisten the food if the puppy prefers it that way but moistened food shouldn't be left out for too long . Adding chicken broth or other flavouring to increase palatability is also a good option . You also need to be little strict otherwise you can slowly run out of options with fussy pet's . Water requirment is approximately 50ml/kg body weight per day from all sources including moisture in food.
