Meal toppers and mix-ins can be a great option for dogs with weak appetites due to illness, or that just aren’t excited by their kibble. Toppers and mix-ins can also boost nutrition, or simply brighten your dog’s day.
Many dogs love freeze dried toppers, such as this one from Stella & Chewy’s. Flavors include Duck Duck Goose, Super Beef, and Tantalizing Turkey.
For additions to kibble, you can’t go wrong with broth, such as this one from Nulo.
If you prefer a powder-based broth that can be mixed up with water before drizzling over kibble, check out this instant broth, also from The Honest Kitchen. Like their other products, the instant broth is made with human-grade ingredients.
Oils & Infusions
Pure Alaskan Salmon Oil from Zesty Paws is primarily an addition for the health benefits, but according to reviewers, most dogs also love it.
Wet Food Toppers
Wet food toppers for kibble are always a great go-to, and Nulo provides a fantastic variety of flavors including Beef, Beef Live, and Kale; Chicken and Green Beans; Chicken, Duck, and Kale; Chicken, Salmon, and Carrot; Lamb, Mackerel, and Kelp; Mackerel, Chicken, and Mussel.
Keeping food toppers and mix-ins on hand is a convenient way to encourage a picky eater or to perk up your dog after a long day. Trying out the different options–freeze-dried toppers, broths, fish oil, and wet food toppers–can be a fun way to learn more about your dog’s preferences and personality.
