For my picky eaters (ferrets and cats), I find that I
have to make changes very gradually. Since she's
eating z/d mixed with her chicken and a/d soup, that's
a good sign. It could be that a few days isn't long
enough to make the transition. You might try going
back to the last point where she eating the mixture
and start gradually increasing from there.
