I have a 10 week old boston terrier who is small for her age, very finicky and not eating well. Her coat is dull, dry, and flaky, though we do live in the desert so that might to be expected. This is my first dog and I have a lot to learn!
I’m interested in making a homemade diet, but really have no idea where to start. From the reading I’ve done it sounds like (and maybe this is just propaganda by the commercial companies) it is difficult to make a nutritionally balanced homemade diet for dogs. If anyone has any resources such as different websites, books, recipes, etc to help get me started, I would very much appreciate it.
