How do you handle a hungry pug?

Name: Babe
Rescued: 2007
Adopted: 2007

Today's post is a question to readers. What do your pugs eat?

I adopted the Sally, the world's pickiest pug. She refused to eat -at all- for the first week after I got her so I had to take her to the vet. I experimented with multiple kinds of food over several months until I found a food that she will eat.
Sally likes "Just a Wee Bit" by Solid Gold. These are tiny kibbles of bison and salmon- just the right size for a little old lady pug with a lot of missing teeth.

Sally loves the canned food made by Castor & Pollux, but her little digestive tract emits clouds of flatulence in the middle of the night, which wakes up her human. :>(

Sally turned up her nose at Honest Kitchen and walked away after sampling Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul.

So here's the question: What do your pugs eat?

Our pugs love Natural Balance Potato and Duck. Our oldest developed intestinal issues and we tried to eliminate alergens. All the pugs liked the food. Unfortunately our oldest continued to get worse and now he is one super-bland soft E/N. He still likes a little P&D mixed in.

A pug that doesn't eat? Never had that problem! But our 8 year old pug also came down with intestinal problems that started me on a search for a low allergy diet. Vet diagnosed Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Finally found Eagle Pack Duck and Oatmeal. Comes in both kibble and soft. Not cheap, but has worked wonders for my little guy. No more vomiting or farting! good luck.
