Too much cottage cheese
Missy is 12.5 weeks old and after having her for 3 weeks, I noticed that after the third week she wasn't eating as much of her food (Eukanova dry kibble mixed with Caesar wet food) as when I first got her from the breeder. Eukanova mixed with Caesar was the food that the breeder recommended and even sent us home with some.
After reading several threads on Yorkietalk, I learned that some Yorkie's get bored with their food so I didn't worry. I also saw a thread about cottage cheese so last week I mixed in a little cottage cheese with her Eukanova mix and she ate every last morsel of it. I did this for the next two days and each day she ate less and less. Now three days later (about 6 meals later with cottage cheese mix) she seems to be getting bored with this mix. I suppose it may be the Eukanova since she has been eating that since she was born so I plan to try and eliminate that altogether.
I plan to try Canidae All Life stages which I also read about on Yorkietalk, but I want to know am I able to give her cottage cheese every day or is that too much? How often do you think a pup be given cottage cheese? Any other suggestions? We have the most finicky little pets, but you gotta love em!
Thanks so much in advance.

We homecook for Punkin and we feed her a little bit of low fat cottage cheese or plain low fat yogurt with every meal.
Punkin weighs 8.5 pounds and we give her somewhere between a teaspoon and tablespoon twice a day. (depends on her activity level that day)
Cottage cheese has sodium in it - so you may want to reduce other sodium to compensate.
