This was my line of thinking...
Dogs are omnivores that thrive on meat right? I see that a lot of dogs foods have meat as the first ingredients and then various forms of plant products.
I was looking at a very popular dog supplement, Missing Link. The ingredients are Flaxseed, Rice Bran, Primary Dried Yeast, Cane Molasses, Sunflower Seed, Freeze Dried Beef Liver, Dehydrated Alfalfa Meal, Dried Carrot, Ground Beef Bone*, Dried Fish Solubles, Ground Barley Grass, Dried Kelp, Freeze Dried Oyster, Zinc Monomethionine, Lecithin, Chromium Yeast, Selenium Yeast, Niacin (Vitamin B3), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Garlic, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Thiamine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B1), Folic Acid, and Vitamin B12 Supplement. Amplify doesn't contain quite that much but the main ingredients are vegetable oil, rice bran, flax seed based. Obviously none of the beef or bone meals..
So I was just thinking I could add a small amount to a cheaper dog food like pedigree (dog foods available at wal-mart! I live in the country I don't have a ton of options) to up the fat and protein content.
I mean really of all the stuff my dogs eat (horse poo, horse feed, smegma beans..) is amplify really going to hurt my dog? Lol ?
