Do you add supplements to your dog's food?
Do you give your dog/s supplements?

What kind of supplements do you give?

I usually give pumpkin/cocunut oil in the morning. I also give her a glucosamine/Chondroitin/MSM suppliment for a mild hip problem. I add an egg about every other day.

I give Solid Gold Seameal and Vitamin C to my pup. My breeder's recommendations.

I add Tripett, raw egg, and coconut oil. I would do salmon oil but it's already added in the kibble.

My dogs get fish oil with their evening meal. Hondo gets fish oil and Glucosamine/Chondroitin. They are fed raw chicken legs as their morning meal.

To add just the right touch of sweetness, I stir their Kibble with my finger at night.

Coconut oil, fish oil, or sardines when I have them.

Pumpkin if it's a puppy being wormed.

Otherwise, nothing....just water.

They do occasionally get raw and/or table scraps for a meal.

Outside of some canned green tripe (tripett), I don't give anything. They don't need it.

They're healthy, they don't smell, their coats glow, and neither have joint issues, so there's no need to supplement everything. They seem to be getting everything they need from their regular diet.
