Talking Meal supplements

Hey guys. I was just wondering if anyone had some suggestions as to things I could add to my dog's dry food. I have already done raw eggs, Vita-Gravy and canned peas. Chaquita is picky about what she'll eat, though. Any other suggestions?

try a veggie/egg/yogurt(plain) mush mix, you can add all sorts of veggies and fruits to the egg and yogurt and make like a mush or soup
What type of supplement are looking for Jane? What does Chaquita need to be supplemented for? What do you feel she is lacking in her diet?

well kim, i want stuff that i can mix with their dry food (for both of them). i'm just trying to make their dinners more interesting. i would get bored eating the same thing all the time and i like to give them something different every once in a while.

they aren't lacking anything, i just want to "spice it up". the plain yorgurt idea sounds interesting.

btw - you would think that the chunky, rescue dog (chaquita) would eat anything and that the prissy, purebred yorkie (penny) would be picky, but noooooooo...chaquita has the refined taste buds.

isn't it funny how their personalities can be surprising If you do the yogurt just add about 1 tablespoon to their dry food not too much, you can also give them mixed veggies, fruits (strawberries, bananas, apples, oranges, blueberries, etc.) I would run them through a blender first though

Jane Kim gave you great suggestions!!! Also if you want to make things interesting for them...fill a kong with their dry food...mix it with honey. Microwave it for 10 seconds and then set it in the fridge for an hour. It will take them ages to get through the sticky mess but they'll love it!!!!

wow guys! great ideas! i will definetely try the honey/dry food - kong combo thing!

bananas sounds great. i think they'd like that. penny's favorite food is apples so i can mush some up for them. is applesauce (plain) OK or does it have too many additives? i am going to try the yogurt thing, too. yah!

Jane you can also make the mush, put that int he kong and freeze it for a yummy healthy treat!
I'd stick to real apples over the applesauce. I'm sure the applesauce is ok every once in a while (like when you are in a hurry) but I prefer to keep things natural and steer clear of too may additives!

Peanut butter freezes well too!

And if you want to mix the yoghurt up with something else, a tablespoon of cottage cheese is a good one!

I add nutritional yeast flakes, cod liver oil (once a week), and yogurt whenever I get a chance....does wonders for the skin.
