Our Top Picks for Picky Puppies

Is your puppy turning their nose up at mealtime? Perhaps the kibble your breeder recommended is just not cutting it and you are hesitant to switch. We understand that is can be difficult to change what you're feeding especially when you have a new puppy you're receiving conflicting recommendations; The breeder is telling you not to change the food, the vet is telling you to switch to an expensive 'prescription diet', and the wacky ladies down at the family pet store are telling you to go full raw! It's all too overwhelming. Well, here is my advice to you: don't drop the kibble, top the kibble! And we have just what you need to turn your picky puppy into a proper chow hound. These premium meal enhancers offer multiple benefits:

  • Increases hydration in your dog's meals to ensure they stay properly hydrated, as dry food lacks sufficient moisture
  • Specially formulated to support puppy growth and development 
  • Adding variety aids in building a strong digestive system 
  • Gives your pup the quality nutrition they deserve!

Stella & Chewy's Perfectly Puppy Beef & Salmon Meal Mixers
