What do you think is this too much? How much supplements to use, rotate?

So I am going to try Fromm large breed puppy and see how we do. I also have Merrik's working dog stew and I add 1 spoon as a topper.

I have been adding 1 tablespoon of pumpkin.

Now for supplements I have or getting:

Salmon oil
Coconut oil
Probiotic
Enzymes

Is this too much?

Should i limit the oils and give maybe a couple times a week small amount?

Any recommendations?

Fromm already adds viable probiotics and prebiotics to their kibble as well as salmon oil

Personally I never added anything more then water, a little Fromm Gold canned food, and a raw egg a few times a week, but I have heard good things about the salmon and coconut oil

Information regarding the probiotics added from their website (Large Breed Puppy Gold dog food - Fromm Family Foods)
  1. Probiotics
    dried lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, dried bifidobacterium longum fermentation product, dried lactobacillus plantarum fermentation product, dried enterococcus faecium fermentation product

So you think pass on probiotic if he is doing well on Fromm, what about enzymes?

Personally, yes I would pass on adding more probiotics.

I don't know how much salmon oil they actually add but Delgado's coat changed dramatically when switched from Authority to Fromm. It might be enough without adding more

As for the enzymes I don't see how it would hurt.

You can always e-mail Fromm and they'll answer any questions within a few days
