Default Dont eat veg & fish

Dog should eat some vegetables, but my dog dont eat. He dont eat all kinds of fish too.

For veg, what should i do to make him eat ? mixed with the minced meat which i cook ?

He never eat fish, or should i feed him fish kibbles rather then currently i feed him Solid Gold lamb kibbles ?

Offal - Offal (or organ meat, e.g. heart, kidney, liver, tripe, etc...) is usually mixed in with the veggie meal, because many dogs do not like the taste (some do). Just be careful not to feed too much, too quickly, as offal is very rich and too much will cause loose stools. Offal can be fed once or twice a week!

Veggie meal - This is for 1 meal not a full day's worth - 1/4 calves liver or an egg and I puree these veggies for about 3/4 cup worth. Mix and match veggies do not try to use all these at the same time - carrots, turnip, parsnip, green beans, yellow squash, zucchini, dark green lettuces, celery - I add a little - very little - of either spinach, kale, turnip greens, or broccoli. Now and then if I have a piece of cauliflower I toss that in too.

To most meals I add 1 teaspoon of oil (cold pressed flaxseed, or safflower or vegetable or olive but usually flaxseed for Omegas). To each meal I add 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast (Vitamin Bs), 1/4 teaspoon kelp, 1/4 teaspoon alfalfa powder. Also I add Vitamin C (about 2000mg) but you need to start off slow and increase a little at a time so as to not upset the tummy. My golden gets 200mg Vitamin E 1x/day

Not including meat. This is the website : http://www.njboxers.com/faqs.htm#plans

You don't need to supplement his kibble with vegetables. In the wild, wolves shake out the stomach contents of their prey and so they do not consume a greal deal of vegetable matter.

He doesn't need fish either. Fish oil can be good for the skin, but if he doesn't like the taste of fish, it certainly isn't necessary. My dog won't eat fish either. She just doesn't like it.

LabBreeder, I don't know all the details about the diet you are feeding, but on first glance the ca/ph ratio seems to be quite out of balance.

You also might want to double check the content of iodine in your kelp product and make sure on an as-fed basis you don't give much more than about 7 mcg of iodine per pound of body weight per day total. Too much of it and you risk thyroid problems.

Only 1 of my 3 will eat fish. The others get salmon oil capsules supplemented with vitamin E. I just push the caps into their muscle meat and they eat them right up. I have been able to get them to eat canned mackerel at times, if I mix it in with other muscle meat, and they will eat leftover cooked fish like grilled swordfish or tuna, but those are usually reserved for human consumption. I don't feed any veggies at all, except sometimes they get some leftover carrots or whatever from our dinner.
