We make feeding fresh simple. You make it fun. Your dog enjoys the health benefits.

Dog parents, like yourself, are awesome. You want the best for your dog. You look for ways to do more for your dog. Whether it’s adventuring with them in the bush or making their mealtime a fun experience. Feeding fresh foods is not only healthy for your dog, but fun for you. 

Thrive Dog Kitchen supplements can be fed to any type of diet, including kibble, tinned, dehydrated, freeze-dried, raw, or fresh, for a nutritional boost. Adding the supplements to your dog’s meal can be more than just spooning it onto their food (though that’s great too). We’ve compiled a list of ways to add some fun and mental stimulation to your dog’s next meal.

A spoonful – Yes, it might be boring, but you can’t go wrong with the simplicity of spooning a small amount of Thrive Dog Kitchen supplements into your dog’s meal. For those super picky eaters, thoroughly mix it into their current food. They then won’t even know they’re eating the nutritious goodness of the wholefood supplements.

Silicone Moulds – Probably more fun for you, the dog parent, because novelty silicone moulds (think paw prints and hearts) quickly turn your dog’s boring meal into a show stopper. They are also a great way to portion and store the frozen fresh supplements. Fill the moulds with the deftrosted supplemented. In 1-2 hours you’ll have nutritious standalone treats or toppers, your dog will eat up.

Kefir – Superboost Thrive Dog Kitchen’s supplements with a layer of kefir, a probiotic, that is great for a healthy gut. Fill silicone moulds ¾ of the way with one of Thrive Dog Kitchen’s supplements, then top with a layer of plain kefir. In 1-2 hours you will have treats that are boosted with kefir to top their meal or feed as individual treats. Or make frozen pupsicles with this great combination.

Kongs and Toppls – Both are great work-to-eat toys that will keep your dog focused and stimulated. They are designed to wobble to keep your dog engaged. Add defrosted Thrive Dog Kitchen supplements into the toy of choice, then top with a natural peanut butter or plain flavoured yoghurt. In 1-2 hours your dog will have a delicious playful treat. This is one time it’s ok for your child, fur child that is, to play with their food. Plus, if you have a few of these toys, mix and match flavours to freeze for later.

Lickimat – whether you wish to slow down your fast eating dog or ease an anxious one, lickmats are a favourite to fill with Thrive Dog Kitchen supplements. Spread defrosted supplements of your dog’s choice onto the mat and feed straight away or freeze for 1-2 hours to extend your dog’s lick fest.

Now it’s your turn. Let’s see your creations using Thrive Dog Kitchen whole food supplements. Share your photos with us on social media, so more dog parents can get their creative juices flowing. Tag us @thrivedogkitchen or use the hashtag #thrivedogktichen.
