Congrats on your new arrival!
TERRIFIC that you are adding some fresh meat into your dogs diet!
Just FYI, you may want to purchase a better, healthier, kibble for your new baby such as the following:

Royal Canin started using By-Products in 2013: Quote by Emmanuel FONTAINE, DVM, MSc, PhD, Dipl ECAR of Royal Canin: “You might have heard rumblings that Royal Canin is adding “by-products” in its formulas. Let’s make this clear: this is not a rumor, and this change will affect all our new formulas and upcoming launches.” BY-Products makes it VERY cheap for them to produce their dog food yet raking in high profit!
Here are the Ingredients From RC site:
rice – No nutritional value to a dog and it’s the FIRST item on the list which means it has the MOST of! It should be a named MEAT – such as Chicken, Beef, etc!
dehydrated poultry protein – This is a BY-PRODUCT – Could mean ANYTHING that has feathers! Meat should ALWAYS be named such as Chicken or Duck etc.
vegetable protein isolate – bumps up the protein content in the food
animal fats – Another UN-NAMED animal ingredient! Could be elephants from the zoo! LOL
hydrolysed animal proteins – And STILL ANOTHER Un-Named animal protein!
fish oil – Even the fish is UN-Named….Should say salmon or sardine, etc.
No added Calcium as MyDogs said. Your kibble will have the correct amounts.
I rotate with the following 2 high quality oils which have combinations of Hemp, Coconut, Flax and different fish oils.
Sh-Emp Oil: SH-EMP OIL Nutritional oil The herring oil is a source of brain enhancing DHA/EPA, which can be converted by the body into Omega 3. Hemp oil is a source of Omega 6, 3, 9 and GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid). The virgin coconut oil found in Sh-Emp is a medium chain triglyceride rich in lauric acid.
Ultra Oil: Ultra Oil for Pets Skin & Coat Supplement with Hempseed Oil for Dogs & Cats
is composed of the best nutrients nature can provide. Our primary ingredient, Hempseed Oil, is a perfect balance of Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9. Next we have added Omega-6 rich Flaxseed Oil which is then balance with Omega-3 rich Fish Oil (sardine and anchovy) followed by Grapeseed Oil to help naturally preserve and act as an all natural antioxidant.
Hope this helps!
