Today I went to big lots and got the digs some vita gravy to go over their food. The ingrediants seem pretty good.. Here's the link to show you the ingrediants. http://healthpronutrition.com/images/skinandcoat.png

I don't really get why it uses "Vegetarian Beef Broth" (or Chicken in the other flavor) but it doesn't seem totally awful. I do remember, a friend got it for his dog... It became the only way to get him to eat his food (Dog Chow..) wink

I find it odd too, that it uses "vegetarian beef/chicken broth". I wonder what that is, exactly. Obviously the product isn't meant to be beef or chicken free, seeing as they do both contain "natural beef/chicken" flavoring further down the ingredient list.
Honestly if I were looking for a kibble topper I'd just use natural low-sodium pure beef/chicken broth. Natural, real flavor and without all the additives. I am unsure as to why they feel the need to sell a gravy with vitamins and minerals in it when all kibbles are "complete and balanced". thinking

Well you know, my dogs really like it. Might be worth trying if your dog is being a picky eater.. I tasted it as well and it tastes good lol laugh out loud

We put it in the Kongs from time to time, it doesn't seem like an awful treat. However, it should be considered a treat and given in moderation. There was a dog we kept who had it mixed with every meal and it gave him really loose stools.

I have had it a couple of times for my boys when it was onsale. I just used it almost like a treat over their food. They did not seem to eat it any better then when I did nto use it. So I guess that was why I did nto buy it again. I do see your point of having a picky eater, in this case it may work. I guess I am lucky at this time not to have one like that. If it helps them to eat, use it. It did not look real bad and it did smell good when I used it.

I got some of that from Big Lots, too. Not awful ingredient-wise, and it's a special treat for them. We all deserve a special treat every now and then wink
