Default Change the food/flavor up?

I was wondering if theres anything I could add to camos dry kibble to change up the flavor. Like small pieces of raw meat or something. I don't want to go to a complete raw diet or anything simply because I can't afford to feed him raw meats all the time. I just want some good ideas to mix into his food every now and then to change up the flavor a little bit so he don't get so bored with it.

Wet food is a great tool for that as is broth or bits of meat like you said, fruit cheese PB almost anything you'd give as a snack.

An easy thing I do is just every so often I put hot water on the dry food, stir it and let it cool.... they go crazy for the food, even though it is the same stuff they have every day.

Maybe some warmed chicken broth or put a beef bullion cube in some warm water and mix it in with the kibble?

I think I read somewhere about mixing plain yogurt in with the food.. I could be completely wrong though.

Just make sure the broth is low sodium or better yet, sodium free. You don't want to give them too much salt.

As BillieSB409 said, you can also mix plain yogurt in there.

Cottage cheese .. Yogurt .. Pumpkin .. Olive oil .. Coconut oil .. Scrambled eggs .. Boiled chicken .. Canned tuna or sardines.
Your not really suppose to mix raw and kibble so if u want to feed a little raw feed it separate as they digest at different rates and can cause an upset tummy.

Would it be ok to say give kibble in a morning and raw in the evening or should you not mix them this way either?
