Default Anyone heard of Artemis?

Today at my local pet store, where i bought Oreo and Ginger innova for the first time, the lady at the counter gave me samples of Artemis - Osopure. It's a holistic approach to dog food.

was wondering if anyone has put their pup on this type of food.. the lady at the counter said it is good for small breed puppies like mine.. sooo i'd just like to know if it's worth buying.

I've never heard about it but I read about it on Mordy's site. www.mordanna.com/dogfood

Looks pretty good from what I can see.

I had just bought a whole bag of Innova yesterday... but Ginger will not touch it! .. so i tried the samples of Artemis, and she absolutely adores it! she gobbled it up in a second!

Oreo on the other hand eats anything! so i don't know! is there anyway i can get her to eat the innova? or should i just switch the both of them on Artemis.. I think they like it because they are smaller than Canidae & Innova.

But i'm definately NOT going to put her back on Eukanuba (thats what the breeder gave me) .. and they are the same size as Artemis..

But I have a whole bag i spent 11 dollars on that I don't want to go to waste.. Should I try to get them to eat it? or should I just Give it to My Uncle who I gave Roxie to? (I think she's on Nutro )

You could try wetting it. My dogs love to have their food wet.

They probably will. My cat didn't like innova at first (when I lived in Vancouver and it was easy to find) but I wet it and then she ate it.

Sometimes they will get stubborn when you change foods, and like some of us, some dogs tend to like the taste of junk food better than the good stuff, and the Eukanuba was definitely junk food! Sometimes it just takes out-waiting them. They won't let themselves starve - try dividing Oreo's portion between his bowl and Ginger's bowl and watch how quickly Ginger decides she'd better start eating her food when Oreo steals "her" food - really the other half of his - out of her bowl!
