Default Adding Beef Broth???

I think I read this in the puppy forum, not sure since I have read so much in the last month. It said that they added low sodium beef broth to their puppy's food. Is that like Swanson's low sodium? I used this today but just a couple of tablespoons. He sure did lap up his lunch today and I had not seen him finish a bowl of kibble until then. To me this still has a lot of sodium in it. I am still transitioning him to TOTW from Puppy Chow. 3/4 c TOTW and 1/4 cup PC. He has had no problems but still does poop 4-5 times a day I feed him 3X a day.

I Love This Forum!

Of course you can add beef or chicken broth to your dogs kibble. Just make sure its low sodium. Others add canned pumpkin or yogurt even.

I think to basically change it up, to give them something different.

Its just a treat. No health benefits. Now Yogurt can be used to add in probiotics and pumpkin is used to calm an upset tummy.

Plain greek yogurt has great probiotics in it. I used to feed it at every meal but i think Karma has an allergy to it. We'll try it again later to confirm.
