Forgot to say he likes the in gravy style the best. If it's the pate style that's all clumped together, for one thing it's a pain to get out of the can and wash the can for recycling and I waste a ton cause I can't get it all out and break all the plastic spoons trying.
More importantly than my inconvenience is he's weird and acts stressed like he can't eat it. He gets up and lies down and pushes the bowl across the floor and has a lot of trouble. I have to break it up and mix it for him. His teeth are fine he can chew bones no problem.
I think he just really hates the sticky texture even if he likes the actual taste. He lived the Alpo gravy cans but since he stopped eating those the vet thinks the chicken in them was causing inflammation, pain and nausea.
So far the only thing he really loves is the merrick Texas beef that's in gravy. The other beef flavor is pate which he does those weird rituals with.
I should video next time.
I found a duck and potatoes pate different brand yesterday. He ate breakfast pretty well. Then pushed the bowl around and got agitated and wouldn't eat. Then at four am I tried again and he ate it but I had to "cut it" for him and feed him a few spoonfuls then he ate it.
He seems so stressed about the pate style I'd rather just give him the gravy kind, much easier for me and he's much happier.
He has no problem eating homemade mashed potatoes but I make them more soupy than the dog foods.
