I have a six month old puppy who I am trying to keep on high quality food. The problem is that she doesn't seem to like the taste and begs to eat the cats cheap Meow Mix. Even when I feed her treats, she seems to gravitate away from the meat flavors and towards the peanut butter or carob. I am currently feeding her Nutro's new Ultra superfood. Does anyone have any suggestions for a tasty, nutrient dense puppy food?

You didn't mention if your dog is large breed over 50lb,or small breed under 25lbs?

Dogs have a sweet tooth to begin with. Just like us we'd rather eat the sweets most of the time. Ultra is very good food, it's not new though it's been out about 5 years. Has 3 all meat proteins and all the superfoods like oatmeal, cranberry, blueberry, pomegrante, pumpkin, flaxseed, etc..

Nutro Ultra is a good choice of food. I like the Nutro brands because The Nutro Company makes their own food and does not outsource like other so called high end dog food companies do.

Switch her up to Natural Choice again with No wheat,corn, or by products all Natural. Try the Herring rice and sweet potato.

Cat food has more protein as well as the multi colors which are artificial colors that are bad for both cats and dogs. Red 40 dye is a super allergen. Plus the corn syrup is just sugar.
