  • Broths and Gravies: Liquid supplements to pour over food. Enhance flavor and add moisture. Some gravies provide protein from sources like meat or fish. Popular brands are Pet Botanics, Nature’s Logic and Embark.

Toppers and mixers can provide the following benefits:

  • Extra nutrition such as vitamins, minerals, protein or healthy fats
  • Increased flavor and moisture for picky eaters or those needing higher hydration
  • Replace one meal a day for weight loss (use directions to substitute properly)

Pet food toppers and mixers allow owners to boost nutrition, add flavor to food and support their animal’s wellbeing during certain life stages or conditions.
