Not an exciting topic but need ideas

I started feeding K9 Feed Sentials, Sunday Sundae, Phyt'n Chance. All of these products are in a powder/ground state for those of you who are unfamiliar. So I will be mixing a couple TBSP. of supplements daily. My dilemma is, What can I mix these products in so my GSD will eat them on a daily basis. I have been mixing them all in goat milk for now and it's working but I need other recomendations because I can't really think of anything else. I thought of mixing it up in a food like honest kitchen but again do I really need to pay for goat milk or honest kitchen.

Your ideas would be appreciated.

Why can't you just add them to your dog's food? If you feed kibble you could just soak it in water and mix in the supplements.

If she won't eat and is otherwise healthy, she is probably not hungry enough. Tough love in this house. as always worked with kids and dogs.

I don't give that many supplements, but I do give purforMSM daily. I use beef or chicken broth, which I make up just for the dog, and add a raw egg with it for breakfast everyday. I also save back scraps of cooked meats and add a few of those as well.

Even with that, Nyx does leave some food in her bowl on occasion. I just leave it out and let her finish it throughout the day. If she's slow to finish it, I skip dinner that day.

Yeah, tough love I can do. Throwing away $$ and watching my girl get skinny is not fun. She would eat every 3rd day.

I tried the Phyt'n Chance and was mixing in a bit of yogurt, a raw egg or her chicken broth depending on her mood. Shadow only likes things for a few days and then they are poison, lol, so I have to stay creative.

She reacted to something in the combo so I had to stop but my favorite trick for getting her to eat is still canned dog food, just a teaspoon, enough to mix stuff in.

I appreciate your ideas and I like them. With picky eaters the ore options the better.
