I think I got lucky. I now have two vets, one traditional who I've been taking my animals to since I was a child. They neutered my pet rat when I was 11. I trust them and they are great. But I have to be careful what I say or I get the lecture or disapproving looks. A few years ago I wanted to try again to find a closer vet that I trusted, it's a 45 minute drive one way. I looked up holistic vets and found my current vets. There are a couple vets there and they are all a little different. My favorite vet is mostly into chinese medicine. But she will also use homeopathic and traditional if needed. Some of the things she says I don't really know if I believe, but what she does and what she gives me works. Some of the other vets are a little less holistic there but they are all nice. I lucked out finding them so quickly, but I was ready to go vet shopping til I found one I liked and trusted.

Whatever food you decide on, stick with it and continue to offer without parm. He will eat it eventually.

thanks mate, the problem is, he is a growing 4 month puppy, so i can't wait around for him to eat it, as he needs his meals at this age

is there any other tips, other than parmazan that i can use, thats effective, and safe to use on a regular basis???

Honestly, he'll be fine if you keep taking his food away for half an hour or so before offering it again until he eats it, he won't starve. He needs to learn to eat raw if you want to feed it. If you're fine with adding toppers to every meal, feel free to, but if you ever want him to eat his food without goodies on it you're going to have to start as early as possible unless you want to end up with a picky dog. Cheese is fine, it's not dangerous to sprinkle a bit of cheese on your dog's food, but you could also add a bit of wet food, boiled boneless shredded chicken, commercial toppers you can get at pet stores.

You can also start to decrease the amount of cheese you are adding. Try feeding it frozen, some dogs like it frozen or partly frozen. Or maybe try plain meat. I honestly would stay away from premade mixes, but I know others like them. I don't like the fillers and extras. Meat, bone and organ is all you need.

You don't have to wait around. Put the food down for about ten or fifteen minutes. Long enough to eat. If its not eaten, take it up and offer it at the next meal. I healthy dog will always eat at some point. They won't starve themselves. Hr is being picky, and you make it worse by " begging" and " sugar coating" it, as well as he is training you rather than the other way around.

I really don't like the idea of adding things to get a dog to eat, like naturalfeddogs said, it makes for picky dogs. Trust me, I have first hand experience with it. But if you feel you have to you could try mixing in some fish or salmon oil. But NOT cod liver oil. Cod liver oil is high in vitamin A, which you can OD on if given too much. The fish oil has omega three fatty acids.

Or krill oil too, but its more expensive.
