How to change a 13 year old dog's diet

Hi.

Would like to listen to some ideas/suggestion on how to change a 13 year old mongreals diet from rice + table scrap to dog fod. Been trying for 2 weeks now but the dog seems to prefer the taste and smell of white rice

nono, wht i mean is , after you have mixed, he still don't want to eat? u can try slowly introduce the dog food, by mixing it a lil bit and stretch it to weeks or a month n' see

like day 1-5 , add 5% dog food, day 6-10, 10% dog food... and the overall amount of food u reduce it, so the dog will feel even more hungry and he won't notice the kibble...

see how it goes... just some suggestions....

if still cannot, you may add a table spoon of cod lever oil to its food. I can assured you that he/she will finish it up.
