Do you have a finicky pet? We know it can be both challenging and frustrating to satisfy their tastes. You spend time researching the best products and getting recommendations from the vet or your friends only to discover that your cat or dog...

  • Turns his nose up right away
  • Eats his new food heartily for a few days, then loses interest completely, or
  • Loves a food that you know is less nutritional

Pet are notorious for standing their ground until they get what they want, especially cats. A dog will refuse to eat for a meal or two, but some cats will hold out until they become ill from not eating. Others cry incessantly until you give them what they want. 

We understand and we have a solution! Take advantage of our Try Before you Buy plan. Request a free sample of a new food and we will bring that along with your delivery order.  If your pet approves, then we suggest buying a small bag to start.

The subject of finicky eaters leads us to another topic - Variety in your pet's diet. We will discuss this subject in more detail in a separate article. But, ask yourself this question:

Would you want to eat the same dry cereal twice a day, every day for years at a time?

If you were forced to do this, we bet you would scrounge around in the trash can periodically too.


At Against The Grain Pet Nutrition

 finicky is spelled F-E-L-I-X  

But even Felix has found a combination of healthy foods he enjoys. After testing different options, he eats Felidae Chicken and Rice dry. (He did not like the All Life Stages formula at all.) But Felix is not satisfied with dry food alone. Wellness Healthy Indulgence, Grain-Free pouches is the food he LOVES and DEMANDS.

This combination is the healthy diet that keeps Felix purring .... For now.

Against The Grain Pet Nutrition is a company that does things differently. We are a small business that is excited about offering pet owners better choices in pet nutrition. We believe that choosing appropriate pet food (be it commercial, raw or home prepared) is the most important factor in any pet's preventative health, convalescence and longevity.  Our name - Against The Grain - reflects our strong passion to provide pet owners with the knowledge to make healthy decisions about pet care even if we go ‘against the grain' of popular thinking.
