That sounds more like a treat than dog food . Is that exactly how the ingredients are listed? Beef: Liver, Lung, Heart & Kidney means there's only organs in the food and no real meat. There's sugar and salt listed as well; not something I'd want to feed our dogs I'm afraid.

Yup, that's exactly how they're listed. We were going to add it to his kibble as a meat supplement. What type's of meat products are out there that have all the essential nutrients?

What kind of kibble are you feeding your dog now? If it's a high quality one, he may not need any supplements at all. Or you can choose to add real meat to his meals.

Currently he is eating Royal Canine Lab 30. I understand dry foods can have all the nutrients, but I want him to enjoy meat too. Maybe I'll find a good canned food for him to mix in with his Kibble. Pet nutrition is frustrating! More so than my own diet!

Royale Canin would not be on my list of preferred dog foods, but if you're comfortable with it...

Rather than canned as a supplement, think of real meat. Here's something for you to consider. Here is some nutritional information for cooked chicken thigh (you'll find a more detailed analysis on this site: http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts/p...products/722/2 ):

Vitamins
Vitamin A
Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol)
Vitamin K
Thiamin
Riboflavin
Niacin
Vitamin B6
Folate
Vitamin B12
Pantothenic Acid
Choline
Betaine

Minerals
Calcium
Iron
Magnesium
Phosphorus
Potassium
Sodium
Zinc
Copper
Manganese
Selenium

All these vitamins and minerals are found naturally in chicken, not added in as supplements and no artificial preservatives needed . Something you're not likely to find in any commercial dog food. Doesn't it make more sense to feed the real thing if you're looking to supplement?
