    my dog seems to be perfectly fine and is happy and running around like normal. he isn't sick and his stool is also fine. we always have given him the same food (iams) but for some reason he is now refusing to eat his food.i put some treats and ripped up bacon in his bowl with the iams food thinking he would eat it but he only ate the treats and bacon. he eats the food if i feed him otherwise he doesn't eat from the bowl

    Try dry dog food from different brand.
    Take him to vet? Worth to check up to see if there is something wrong.

    I'm not sure this is relevant but my cat often does the same. We feed him one brand of cat food for ages and then sometimes he just decides that he doesn't like it anymore and refuses to eat it. Maybe try a different brand?

    Is he neutered? If not then there may be a ***** in heat near where you live.

    Try to change his food. Stop feed him with your food, or be expected to share your plate with him. And just to be sure, take him to a vet.
