There are a lot of things you can add to your dog’s food (even if you feed kibble) that are beneficial to their health. I have been told that if I’m doing raw correctly, I don’t have to add anything – I think thise is poppycosh.
Parsley Leaf Powder (fresh is even better) – freshens breath (I sprinkle a small amount on their food a few times a week)
Alfalfa Powder – alfalfa powder is mineral and nutrient rich, a natural pain reliever and anti-inflammator; it also supports digestive, skeletal, glandular, and urinary systems.
Kelp Powder (sourced from Norweigian waters) – supports thyroid health (I sprinkle a small amount on their food a few times a week)
Green Lipped Mussel Powder – acts as an anti-inflammatory, connective tissue repair, joint health support, and Omega 3s and 6s (our dogs get a small amount every other day mixed in their food)
Wag Lifetime Joint Care – joint care supplement that works well and fast (Rodrigo and Sydney get 2 tablets each per day, crushed and mixed in their food)
Rainbow Food Based Calcium – great for Rodrigo and Sydney, because it gives them the extra bone and joint support they need due to their arthritis.
Grizzly Salmon Oil – Omega 3s and 6s, supports healthier skin and coat, supports joint health, supports immune health (3 pumps for Sydney and Rodrigo, 2 pumps for the puppies – based on serving suggestions on the bottle)
Grizzly Pollock Oil – very similar to salmon oil, but a great alternative when alternating oils or when salmon oil is unavailable.
Megga Dog Camelina Oil – Omega 3s and 6s, supports healthier skin and coat, supports joint and connective tissue health, anti-inflammatory, and supports immune health, all without the fishy smell
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – anti-bacterial (I have put it on paws that were licked raw and rashes and they were cleared up by the next morning), anti-fungal, antioxitant, anti-inflammatory, lots of good fats, great for skin, coat, eyes, and the digestive system (I split 3 tablespoons between 4 dogs 3x a week)
Raw Goat’s Milk – unpasteurized so it still contains lactase, which makes the lactose digestible for our dogs; a great source of protein, and the pro-Vitamin A is said to have cancer fighting properties (I pour this over our dogs’ food as a treat a few times a week). We get ours from a local farm. You can also order it online from The Honest Kitchen.
