Giving Your Food a Little Something Extra
Sometime dry dog food just is not enough for your dog. There was a while where my dog would only eat his food if mixed together with wet food. Both Purina One and Beneful offer a variety of canned food. If canned food is not for you try adding a little real food. Eggs are a great cheap source of protein. Gravy can be quickly make with a little chicken or beef stock. Last, but not least, table scraps can be a great treat.
