The Benefits of Kibble Topper

For the purpose of this blog, we’re going to offer some important information about the benefits of a Kibble Topper.

Now we know what you’re thinking, I already know the benefits of this thing that I’m not exactly sure what it is. Kudos for the confidence, but this is your beloved dog we’re talking about, and trust us, this information will be great for your dog, so read on to learn more!

What is a Kibble Topper?

The definition is actually very close to the name itself. A Kibble Topper is food you put on top of your dog’s regular dry kibble. Now when it comes to what exactly can be considered Kibble Topper, that’s where things expand. The fact is a lot of things can be considered Kibble Topper. Maybe you’ve freeze-dried some food you purchased from the grocery store and wanted to add something to your dog’s regular meal. Maybe you prepared some homemade dog food you want your dog to try, but don’t want to overwhelm them. Or, maybe you want to add some wet food to your dog’s kibble because they haven’t been eating as much of it. All options, along with many more, are correct.

What are the benefits of a Kibble Topper?

There are many benefits to giving your dog a Kibble Topper. Probably the foremost benefit however is nutritional, due to the added proteins and nutrients found in most Kibble Toppers. Obviously it depends on what exactly you’re serving, but a quality Kibble Topper, like SuperSauce Antioxidant Rich Superfood Kibble Topper (which comes in Cheddar Cheese Recipe, Beef Liver and Chicken Liver) can transform a good, healthy kibble meal into a fantastic, super healthy bonanza of a feast!

Another benefit in giving your dog a Kibble Topper includes making their meals more palatable, mainly because they have a stronger taste and smell than regular kibble. This is especially important for picky eaters.

Kibble Topper can also be used as a means to provide more hydration to your dog’s diet, especially if you’re considering a wet Kibble Topper.

The added nutritional value found in a quality Kibble Topper is also a great way to accommodate a dog with selective health issues, and is great for dogs that are overcoming an illness and need some extra vitamins and proteins.

What are the negatives of Kibble Topper?

Since most quality Kibble Toppers are bursting with proteins and nutrients, which sounds great initially, you don’t want to overload your dog. Think of it like vitamins for yourself or your family. While a reasonable amount is very helpful, imagine if instead of breakfast, lunch and dinner, you just ate vitamins? That might be taking things a tad too far. A general rule is that Kibble Toppers should only make up approximately 10% of your dog’s diet.

So if you’re looking to give some added nutrition to your dog’s meals, are trying to get your picky dog to eat more consistently, or your dog has health issues or is getting over something, a Kibble Topper is a great addition to their regular kibble. But just remember, there is such thing as too much of a good thing, even if it is delicious, so serve with moderation.

Your dog will definitely thank you!
