The diet I feed my dog looks like this. He is a male, 55lb 9 month old pit mix.
AM – 1lb of ground chicken mix
PM – 1lb of ground chicken mix
– 1/2lb of tripe every 2 days
– Carlson cod liver oil, 1 pill every 2 days
– Carlson salmon oil, 1 pill every day
– Coconut oil, 3 teaspoon every day
– 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 garlic clove, 1 egg without shell 2-3 times a week.
– 2 Tsp of Phresh Greens every day
In total he gets about 2 lbs to 2.5 lbs per day. He is a active dog and I think he could do with a bit more weight. I recently started throwing in 2-3oz of chicken liver as well as 1-2 chicken thigh or a turkey neck to his meal at night. Would it throw off the balance since I feed him a chicken ground mixture and ratios are good like that? Or will it be okay to add chicken thighs or turkey neck with some liver aswel at night meals?

Thank you for your replies.
Crazy4cats- the nupet by ark seems to be good. It has some good ingredient and is specifically for dogs. Might look in to that.
Jennifer- that’s what I thought aswel. Kefir bought from farmers market should be better. I am going to try it out. They are only here on Saturdays so I have to wait for them. As for adding more proteins, I am going to go with Turkey after I am done with the chicken mix I have. I don’t think I will by a grind though. Instead I want to balance his meal myself. To the diet he has now, I think he can do with a bit more food. I’m thinking of throwing in 1-2 chicken thighs with bone aswel as some chicken breast just to up the amount of food he gets. I might have to add some liver with that too. He still is a puppy and I feel like he is a bit skinny and could do with a bit more food. He is fairly active aswel. I might go for about 2.5-3 lbs food per day.
