My 6 month old is beeing fed wellness fish and sweet potato, what else can i give him to give him a more balanced diet. I see that some people give plain yogurt and some other stuff, i would like to give him somethings like that but im not sure what i can give him and what they contain to make him healthier.
Thanks in advance for any advice

Wellness is pretty balanced. You could give him fish or salmon oil as an additional supplement. Any other food you give him will just be in addition to the kibble.

I feed my dog just about everything (well...that's healthy)....fruits, veggies, fish, chicken (shnitzel sometimes hehe), potatoes, rice, etc....adding a bit of anything (common sense at work here) is fine..it'll give your dog some additional vitamins and nutrients...but if you ever want to make your own meals aside from feeding wellness, I suggest doing a bit of research first since you don't want to throw nutrients off too much. I think you're pretty safe though...

Oh..and flax seed oil is pretty good too aside from the fish oil (which I don't recommend feeding more than twice a week). Uhm.. you can also throw in a teaspoon of kelp powder twice or three times a week..its pretty healthy as well....

They sell it at the pet store, but I use human grade (the same stuff we use). I usually get it from Whole Foods or Wal-Mart.

a sea meal supplement is good for them and helthy...go search for solid gold foods on the net and you will find all the supplements you are looking for you can get the oils also..and you can search for somebody around you that caries the product...and i also mix 2 table spoons of cottage cheese with there food and they love it...like what was said...fruits,veggies,another thing if you dont use the oils....and you go with a supplement like sea meal you can add a little bit of chicken broth to it...they will enjoy.....hope all this helps
