Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Malted Kelp and appetite   Mon Mar 09, 2015 11:42 pm

Recently found this supplement claimed that would help to improve the appetite. I am little bit curious how does malted kelp improve the dog's appetite?
I enclosed the product description below.

"A traditional supplement containing Malt, Kelp and Aniseed, formulated to encourage and maintain a good healthy appetite in both dogs and cats.

The combination of ingredients in this tablet encourages those with poor appetites to clear their bowls and so even fussy feeders will be helped to regain a healthy appetite and so gain bodyweight and condition. The inclusion of aniseed in the formula aids digestion and makes it appealing to the taste; kelp ensures that all the essential micro nutrients are supplied. Nutritious malt extract is for energy and to provide vitamin B meaning it is ideal for convalescents and poor eaters alike. This tablet may be crushed for easy administration if required and should be given half an hour before feeding."

Any thought?

I don't know how that would help. Maybe they like the taste of malt? I tried giving Diz kelp for a while and he hated it. If you're worried about appetite, or if Okami isn't finishing her food, try adding a tsp of DE and a bit of water. It's worked for every fussy eater I've ever met! Also helps make the poops solid.

Would like to confirm a few things:
1: Is the DE are you referring to diatomic earth?
2: How to apply? in the meal?

Thanks for sharing your secret with us =)
