Aside from our girl getting Wellness dry kibble, she also gets human food, just what we'd eat, mixed in with her kibble. She loves just about everything, we don't give her any junk (cookies, etc.) but she does get the occasional pancakes for breakfast on Saturdays when we have them. So long as your dog doesn't experience digestive upset, I would see nothing wrong with human food. My family has had many, many dogs who all lived well into their teens, who were fed mostly human food. Our girl is only 6 and very healthy, so, thus far, we've not seen a need for any type of supplements. In the past though, with our older dogs, we had given Cholodin for brain function, Ester-C which is an anti-oxidant, Condroitin for joints, cranberry supplements for kidney function, herbs from our holistic vet, and fish oil.
It is truly frightening to look at the ingredient list of some pet foods, and then go look up what each of those things actually is. Some of it doesn't even seem fit for driveway gravel.
