Sandra for the Food Tip!

May 21st, 2015

Our pups are notorious for their changing taste in food.  Like so many before them, not to mention my own child, they like their treats but need their nutrition.  We have tried chicken broth, which worked for one but not so much the other; also, wet kibble, dry kibble, warm water, cool water, Cheerios in the bowl, etc.

As it happens, I tweeted out for some solutions and my Twitter friend, Sandra March, tweeted back with a great suggestion to boil ground turkey and mix it in with the kibble.  Her dog is also picky and this works for her.

So far, so good.  They love the turkey and it’s a LEAN protein, so we’re minimizing the fat in their diet as well.   Just a little mixed in with the kibble is a great addition to their diet and they licked the bowl clean!

    Since dogs require SOME fat in their diet, I always give them some juice or sauce from our dinner, a tablespoon or so from the pan flavors a lot of kibble. As long as their dry food is as nutritionally complete as you can find, a little fatty juice makes your dogs VERY happy, takes the boredom away.

    Good point. The boiled turkey is still working. They certainly can take advantage in other ways, too! The rascals know what buttons to press and it is up to us to know the difference between true distaste and manipulation with all behaviors.
