    Question Food Toppers, Supplements, & Oils

    Brutus has been on Blue Buffalo Basic for Puppies, I got Blue Buffalo Wilderness for Puppies today & will slowly start introducing it tomorrow. Last week I bought him plain natural yogurt, and have been putting it in his food every other day, & only at dinner (he loves it) I also got him salmon oil today, and will start introducing that as well. Brutus was fine on his previous food, however I wanted him on a better food, and want to be proactive versus trying to fix a problem when he gets older. I know that salmon oil is good for his skin, coat, and if memory serves me correctly his immune system. I thought yogurt would just be a nice treat and make our baby happy! Right now we feed an all natural yogurt banana 5 calorie treat, but plan to also add frozen green beens. Does anyone else have any idea or reasons they have other things they feed? I'm completely open to having a happy healthy Brutus from the beginning.

    Also, Brutus was 26 pounds two weeks ago at the vet, does that sound normal to everyone? He will be 5 months on Black Friday (which I won't be participating in lol)

    Thank you for any input XXX

    Carrots would be good, since I happen to like carrots and not green beans! Thanks for your help

    I give many random things as toppers, like Christine said with the bananna, maybe a vitamin C on occasion, folic acid to any bullies I would like to breed in near future, UTI supplement, NuVet supplement, yogurt, cottage cheese, green beans, salmon oil, fish oil pills, sliced string cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, pumpkin...

    plus I do home cook too so I am able to use up things that would go bad in my veggie drawer, and the LOVE brocolli too-- I alternate that with Fromm Beef Fritatta.

    please note I do NOT, I repeat NOT put all these things in their bowl everyday!!! I mix it up, use what I have on hand, then get some more. They are spoiled but they love me so they deserve it.

    I feed my two Fromms Beef Fritata, twice a day, with Fromms Pâté wet food and kibble in the morning, and just kibble in the evening. For their treats, I give them plain unsweetened yogurt 2 or 3 times a week, I mix this with either fresh strawberries, or cut up apples, they bananas, frozen blueberries, oatmeal, baby carrots, green beans, cheese strings, cooked broccoli, for supplements, I give them salmon oil, cranberry pill, and apple cider vinegar.

    I have only been doing on an every other day with yogurt, and begin the salmon oil tonight. I like the idea of using stuff I have on hand too, we seem to buy LOTS of veggies when we go to the grocery store (I HATE going, so we only go once a month and stock pile) but can't eat them fast enough sometimes.

    I want to add ACV, but wasn't sure how it would go over with my two JRTs. We have one huge automatic water thing, so all of the kiddos would have to have it. I know Brutus would eat ANYTHING, I mean eating his favorite past time, not sure if the girls would eat carrots though I would love it if they would!

    Thank you, all of you for the ideas! I want to make sure he is getting all vitamins and nutrients that our growing little boy needs

    You can try all the food suggestions including the carrots, and the apple cider vinegar for the Jack Russell's as well , it won't hurt them, if they don't like it, they wont eat it, but I also had a JRT' for 14 years, and they are like EB in a lot of ways, they are stubborn, very smart, and will eat just about anything. When it comes to foods , treats, supplements, and over the counter medications, what is safe for humans, is usually safe for dogs, with a few exceptions ( dogs can't have grapes, onions, chocolate, ) also common sense prevails for supplements like anything else too much of a good thing , even if its healthy can be bad, should watch the amounts for some things such as vitamins and supplements, and over the counter medications such as Benedryl, and give according to the wight of your dog. If you are not sure, you can always ask your vet.

    My oldest JRT Mary Kate is 10, and my youngest Marlee Mae is 3. Mary has SUPER bad allergies, so much so they changed her diagnosis to asthma. She is on predezone forever now Both of them are picky eaters when it comes to treats, but not about kibble. Mary actually is on a diet, but a lot of that is because of the medicine. I'm hoping they will take on the carrotts, green beans, ect. I know all of them love cheese. Of course who doesn't!

    I just noticed you changed your avatar and my baby is in the picture!!! I honestly do think Noah spending so much time playing with Remy for the first few months of his life is why he attaches himself to Skyler and Tanner every chance he gets.
