Anyone know a good Whole foods supplement for a dog and or cats?

My guys will eat the cooked meat meals but once I add the vits etc they don't want them anymore soooo I thought IF I could find a good whole foods one Maybe I could get them to eat it.
Just a thought.
Thanks

I would try just adding some calcium, taurine & vitamin B 1st. A few days to weeks without anything added won't hurt & if you add slowly they get more used it.

Mel, were you doing separate vitamins or were you adding Alnutrin and they didn't like that?

Well Bug

I did try the Alnutrin with EggShell Calcium several times but no go and I also tried it with a seperate calcium source and a multi no go. The funny thing is they have eaten both these supplements with raw.

They will eat cooked plain or with just a calcium supplement but nothing else!

Trying to figure out kitties likes and dislikes gives me a headache! lol

Anyway I thought IF I could find something that had more of natural smell to it maybe they would do better.

I know there are grass mixtures, seameal mixtures etc and I thought maybe one of those or something like that. But I wanted to know if you all know of anything at all thats natural based like this.

I am still trying but they are just really hard nosed!

Thanks any suggestions , ideas etc will be Greatly Appreciated.

Brewer's yeast (aka nutritional yeast is chock full of b vitamins and minerals, but you'd have to find out what a particular brand contains in order to make up the rest with other vitamins. I don't know any cats that won't eat brewer's yeast. You'd have to also provide some form of calcium because brewer's yeast also contains phosphorus and it needs to be balanced out. What about just feeding them plain meat and giving them NuCat vitamins separately? Those are available as tablets and chews.
