I'd switch from Purina. It's not a very good food. Your puppy will get a lot more benefit from a quality brand. Well, you can read more about that in the dog food forum.

I used to know a lady who's dog would not eat unless she was sweeping the floor lol if she swept the floor the dog worried that she was going to pick the food up off the floor. So everytime she would set down food for her dog she would start sweeping and she would gobble it right up. Dogs are strange creatures and are smarter than most give them credit for. If you get steak everyday and love it and then someone gives you some ground beef you probably wouldn't be too happy with that lol. Thats probably what she is thinking. " I don't have to eat this crap give me the yummies that i used to get" lol eventually she will eat just stick to your guns

If you think about it, its probably not the taste of the food you are giving your dog that it dosnt like, because if a dog is left to roam, and gets hungry it will scavage any rotten bit of food it can out of garbage bins, so changing the food all the time is not really an option, I think your pup is just testing the boundaries with you, it will not allow itself to starve, if the vet says the pup is healthy then stick to your guns, allow the pup to rule you on this matter, then what next? it dosnt like to sleep in its own bed, so I gave it mine? it dosnt like someone sitting next to me on the sofa, so we dont have company? this has got to be sorted out now IMO

Time for some tough love.
