    I've got an amazing 8 month old Goldendoodle who's recently stopped eating all of his food. It was quite sudden, as he used to get excited and love his food. Now he doesn't seem bothered and occasionally grazes without eating everything he needs.

    He's still his playful self and nothing has changed behaviourally, nor has there been any sickness or diarrhea.

    I've taken him to the vets a couple of times (the second time for blood tests) and everything is completely normal and healthy.

    Can anyone offer any help or guidance?

    He's on Purina Pro plan, and has always loved it. We've tried introducing small amounts of other foods and he doesn't seem interested in them either...

    Could it be the heat ? What about something like roast chicken ?

    Yes possibly, he does seem to eat more late at night, this could be because it's cooler? We have thought about giving him chicken but we're trying to avoid him having cooked chicken forever lol. Do you have any brand recommendations?

    It could be that his major growth phase is coming to an end so he needs less food.
