Meal Toppers for Dogs


Share This:


Meal toppers are an easy way to add a little something extra to your dog’s daily food.

Meal toppers are simply additional ingredients that you can mix in with your dog’s food to provide them with extra nutrition or a different flavour. There are heaps of different toppers available, so you’re sure to find one (or more) that your dog will love.

Toppers can be added to both dry food, wet food, raw food, or kibble. They can either be mixed in or simply served as a topping. 

Some popular toppers include freeze-dried meat, vegetables, fruits, hemp oil, and yogurt. So if you’re looking to give your dog’s meals a little boost, then be sure to check out some of the great meal toppers available.

So what are the best dog food toppers to supercharge those daily meals? Peanut Butter, Hemp Oil, Unbleached Tripe, Plain Yoghurt, Omega-3 Blend, and Paw Paw are 6 great options to get your furry friend’s tail wagging. Let’s look further into each.

1. Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is a classic favourite that’s high in protein, around 25% by content, which is super high for a plant based food. It is also loaded with natural fibre, and a good source of healthy fats like Omega-6 oils.

And the vitamins, don’t get us started… Peanut butter is a good source of Vitamin E, a range of B Vitamins like biotin, niacin, and folic acid. Want to know more about the benefits of these? We’ve covered them in this article of essential nutrients for dogs.

Important! Be sure to choose a variety of Peanut Butter which is unsweetened and without any salt added as these additives will do no good for your dog’s health.

2. Hemp Oil

You might be surprised to learn that hemp oil can be good for your dog. Hemp oil contains only trace amounts of THC meaning it won’t get your dog high, but it does come loaded with super health benefits. 

Hemp oil is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are known to promote joint health and support a healthy immune system. Some pet owners also believe that hemp oil can help to relieve anxiety and improve digestion.

3. Crushed Tripe

Tripe is made from the stomachs of animals. For dog food this is most commonly from cows. It is an excellent source of protein and other nutrients, and many dog owners find that it helps to keep their dogs healthy and active

If prepared correctly, Tripe can be a great source of natural probiotics for your dog. Always look out for unbleached tripe as this is where those probiotics are retained which are so beneficial for your dog’s gut health.

Try our Crushed Tripe Meal Topper for Dogs which has been lightly washed under warm water, dehydrated, then blended up into a coarse powder. It’s super tasty and easy to sprinkle over your dog’s meal.

4. Plain Yoghurt

It’s well known that yoghurt is good for us humans, but did you know that it’s also good for dogs? Natural yoghurt is packed with probiotics which is great for a dog’s digestive system. 

As yoghurt is such a versatile food, it’s easy to add to your dog’s diet. You can mix it into their food or just plonk some right on top and your dog will love it.

But make sure to choose unsweetened natural yoghurt for your dog. Sweeteners like Xylitol is used in lots of flavoured yoghurts but is a toxic to dogs. If you are unsure then you can choose a yoghurt which is specifically marked as dog safe like the Daily Dollop by Chobani.

5. Omega-3 Blend

Omega-3 is the secret superfood for dogs. It helps boost their immune strength, improves skin and coat quality, supports brain development in puppies, and improves heart health.

On the flipside, if your dog is suffering from any health conditions, Omega-3 reduces skin irritation, and reduces inflammation caused by arthritis.

One great way to get some Omega-3 in your dog’s daily diet is with our signature Omega-3 Meal Topper for Dogs. It contains a blend of Aussie whole sardines, New Zealand green lipped mussels, and locally sourced chondroitin from cartilage.

6. Pawpaw

Pawpaw is a great fruit for dogs to keep them healthy and hydrated. It is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, all of which are essential for your dog’s health.

Being a good source of fibre, pawpaw also helps with digestion and helps to prevent constipation for dogs. Just be careful not to feed any pawpaw seeds or skin to your dog as these could actually cause an intestinal blockage.
