Default plain yogurt, pumpkin, coconut oil, wet dog food

I want to eventually add plain yogurt, coconut oil, pumpkin, and/or wet dog food to Loki's diet. I'm aware that it all should be added one at a time and gradually and at the moment we are just focusing on switching him to TOTW puppy first. However, when we eventually start to add all of the above how often can I give him each of the food items? For instance can I mix in yogurt in his morning meal, pumpkin in his evening and wet dog food at night? And maybe coconut oil from a spoon at some point or is this way to much in one day? Is it all to fattening and will make him grow to fast? I would love to hear others feeding routine with their pups

Also how much of each can I feed. At the moment he is 10.8 maybe 11lbs but I won't add anything else until he is 100% on TOTW and doing well. So he will be bigger but a general amount would be great

When he is full grown you can do 2 or 3 tablespoons of canned pumpkin per day. My boy is around 65lbs and gets 1 tablespoon per meal. At his weight, I would start at 1/4th teaspoon per meal.

1/4th teaspoon per 10lbs per meal is also the suggested amount for coconut oil.

As you said, make sure to add these after he is on TOTW. I would wait two weeks before adding anything else.

As for the canned food, I say jump right in with it. If you are adding it to kibble, you can just do a couple of spoonfuls.
