5 great nutrients that a topper will add to your dog's diet

Our dogs are just as important as the next person may be, and if you love yours, you will want to keep them healthy and strong. Every time you add dog food topper to your furry friend’s food, you are not only increasing the amount of food they eat, but also adding to their nutritional value. 

Here are a few nutrients that dog food topper would add to your dog’s diet and keep them healthy.


Zinc is an important nutrient to add to your dog's diet, as it helps promote healthy skin and coat. It also plays a role in the formation of new cells in their bodies, which means that they can grow faster and stronger.

The amount of zinc that you should give your dog depends on his age and size—the higher the amount of zinc you provide, the better! But don't worry: because dogs are omnivores (they eat both meat and plants), most brands will have some form of animal protein as well as plant matter in their food already. For example: if you're feeding Purina One Dry Dog Food for large dogs or Kibbles & Bits Small Breed Adult Formula Dry Dog Food for smaller breeds (or any other brand), both contain small amounts of zinc already included within their ingredients list; so there's no need to add more than what already exists there!


Calcium is an essential nutrient for your dog's bones and teeth. The recommended daily amount of calcium for dogs is 1,000 mg per day, which is 10% of the RDA for humans. Your pet's need for calcium will depend on his/her age and activity level. Calcium can also be found in dairy products such as milk, cheese and yogurt; however these foods have a high fat content so it's best to limit them as much as possible if you're feeding your furry friend a regular diet (which we recommend).

Finally we should mention that there are many other sources of this mineral, including vegetables such as broccoli or kale!

Omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are a great way to add in some extra nutrients for your dog's diet. They can help with skin and coat health, as well as joint and brain health. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce inflammation, which is great for the heart!

They are also great for the brain, and can help with cognitive function. Omega-3 fatty acids are an essential fatty acid that humans need to consume in their diet; dogs cannot make it on their own.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps maintain healthy skin and coat. It's important for a healthy heart, reducing inflammation and helping your dog's immune system work properly. If you want to boost the nutritional value of your dog's food, consider adding Vitamin E as a topping!


Glucosamine is a naturally occurring compound that helps to support the formation of cartilage. It's found in both food and supplements, and can be used to treat joint pain or inflammation in dogs.

The best sources of glucosamine for dogs include:

  • Beef liver – 1/4 cup per week (1/2 ounce)
  • Spleen – 1 oz per pound twice weekly
  • Chicken liver – 1 oz per pound twice weekly
  • Cod liver oil – 1 tsp per 10 lbs of body weight Salmon – 2 oz per pound twice weekly

The recommended dose of glucosamine for dogs is 1,500 mg per pound of body weight. This can be given daily or in two separate doses, depending on the product you choose.
