If you tell Balance IT that you want a recipe for a lb dog, the recipe should have about calories, or use 12 lbs to get a recipe with closer to calories. Thank you so much for your article. I have a 90 2o month old Gerberian Shepsky that is highly allergic to poultry and slightly allergic to beef.

He does very well with salmon, though. My question is this: Why do you say to limit fish consumption? This concerns me because it is one of the very few proteins he can tolerate.
Thank you so much for all of your research! If you feed just one protein, you risk your dog becoming allergic to that protein as well. Have you tried lamb? Different protein sources provide different nutrients. Some fish has the potential to be contaminated with toxins, especially very large fish such as tuna, and freshwater fish from polluted lakes and rivers.

If you can find at least one and preferably two more proteins that your dog can handle, and rotate between them, it will improve the quality of the diet. Be sure to give appropriate supplements to make up for what is missing when you feed such a limited diet. After all I got a website from where I know how to actually take helpful data regarding my study and knowledge. I visit daily a few blogs and websites to read posts, except this website provides quality based posts.
I really want to try this, but your discussion of the necessity of variety has me a little bit nervous. I definitely dont have the time to feed my dog something different every day.

For example, make one batch with poultry and the next with red meat. Thank you for the information! We re-homed all but our guy. Thanks again!! This lady tells you to give your dog those adult one a day multi vitamins, well I thought that sounded weird and to easy so I look it up and it had D3 in it and D3 is horrible for your dog and will store inside of your dog.. So good luck with that.. Dave, you just added five comments, all with extreme views.
You are correct that when adding calcium to a homemade diet, plain calcium without added vitamin D is recommended, as otherwise the amount of vitamin D would be too high, but the amount in most one-a-day type of multivitamins should not be dangerous. You guys need to listen to Dave. The recalls were due to unsafe amounts of vitamin D. Do your own research.
Too much water can kill you, too. Try to just clean the area under the eyes regularly, especially in the morning or whenever your dogs eyes tend to be runniest.

Rather than using snacks to fatten up your skinny dog if she really needs to gain weight, you may want to verify with your vet would be to feed her a little more, and your other dog a little less. My 13 year old beagle has been diagnosed with kidney disease. She absolutely hates the prescription dog foods.

I would like to go with a homemade diet. What are your recommendations since she needs low protein and low phosphorous. What are your recommendations since she needs low protein and low phosphorous? Up until 2 weeks ago, he was fed raw for 8 yrs, and I always thought it was balanced, with addition of veggies, RMBs, organs etc.
My dog was diagnosed with a sudden onset auto-immune disorder, such that he can never do raw again, bc of possible bacterial contamination. This book, and supp is formulated by certified pet nutritionist, and is special ordered through vet clinics, so do I have blind faith in this? Would love your review on. I would use Balance IT recipes and supplements instead. If your dog is over weight, take it for a walk outside or throw ball twice a day. If you take your dog outside, it will not have a vitamin D deficiency either.
We all need a little more exercise in our life and your dog will live longer. Should the eggs be raw or cooked? Also in the organs category you mentioned that liver should be part of that, but then what other organs should be used? And should they be cooked? I hope that his suffering will stop. Thanks for the informative article! Eggs can be fed either raw or cooked, though the whites may be better digested if cooked. Liver is the most nutritious organ, but heart is also good choice to include in the diet.
Have you talked to your vet? Skin problems can be caused by many things.
The most common is fleas — if your dog is allergic to flea bites, then even a single bite can cause intense itching and scratching that can last up to two weeks. Environmental allergies to things like grasses, pollens, dust and mold are far more common than food allergies. Seasonal flare-ups are likely caused by environmental allergies. Secondary infections bacterial or yeast can cause itching and scratching even after the underlying cause has been addressed. Sometimes where a dog is itchy can provide clues. Itching around the tail is often fleas. Recurrent ear infections are a sign of allergies food or environment.
Paw licking and itching on the underside of the dog may be due to contact environmental allergies. Your vet may be able to tell more with an exam and skin scraping to look for secondary infections. Any suggestions for a dog allergic to chicken???
About This Item
What meat would I use other than beef? Is pork ok? I am hesitant to use other poultry but am not sure about turkey or duck. Yes, pork is OK to feed, though it tends to be very high in fat, so you would need to use leaner options rather than ground pork unless you know the fat content is OK. Maybe I missed it, but how do I determine how many lbs of dog food to give per day based off my dogs body weight? High-fat meats may have two or three times more calories than lean meats. Cooked grains tend to be high in calories, but non-starchy veggies have almost no calories and should not be include in any calculations feed whatever amount of non-starchy veggies you want that your dog likes and does well with.
Small dogs eat much more for their weight than large dogs do. Young, active dogs generally need more calories for their weight than older or sedentary dogs do. If you give treats, chews or leftovers, those calories must be subtracted from the amount you feed in daily meals.
Regardless of what method you use, your individual dog may vary, so the only way to know for sure how much food your dog needs is to watch their weight weigh regularly if possible and adjust the amount you feed as needed to keep your dog at a lean, healthy weight. And your responses to the comments have been so helpful too!
My 31 lb. Rat Terrier was recently diagnosed with pancreatitis and is now eating Royal Canin low-fat vet food and on antibiotics which I am not sure is really necessary. After learning more about what causes pancreatitis, I decided a homemade diet would be best for my dog.
