For a friend who has a picky elderly dog. She has mixed in just about everything she can think of into her dog food to get him to eat. So I'd like to know, What special stuff do YOU mix in?

We mix in a bit of everything at times, our favorites though are the Wellness 95% Meat canned foods, we go APE for those! Mommy will give us yogurt, cottage cheese, eggs, chicken, tuna, meat, veggies, just a little variety here and there.

My dog is picky. I may of made him behave picky by trying to convice him to eat more than he would. When I adopted him from animal control he was way to thin. I would mix in canned food to encourage him to eat more.

Now he won't eat his food with out canned food. shrug

He's a picky dog. Sometimes I put kibble, a little water in an empty can of dog food and then add a little canned to it, then I shake the can. I let it sit in the can overnight with a pet food saver lid on it. The next day the kibble is softer and coated with the canned food. He eats that happily and normally will eat it all.

Raw eggs, plain yogurt, canned sardines in water. And i feed raw meat seperately(6-8 hours apart from kibble meals since they digest differently)

I have just met- you and I LOVE- you!

Oh, the fabulous world of mix-ins big grin My guys always get a little canned and plain yogurt, as well as some wild salmon oil, mixed in. They also get raw eggs, the occassional left over, bananas, sardines, etc... A lot of the extra stuff is given in kong form.

Does she know why the dog hasn't an appetite? Could be a chronic condition that snuck up on her. Sassy's kidney disease was only discovered due to a routine blood test before a minor surgery. I thought her moping around was just age.

She's done all the bloodwork ect. It's an elderly dog who's always been a finicky eater but she's run out of all the usual things to try. She's done all sorts of testing on him, seems to be just a finicky eater. Just wanted to give her a few more options to try beside the regular... yogurt, peanut butter, chicken broth (low sodium) etc. Thanks!
