    I have a 6 year old papillon. I cook her meals and also give her a multivitamin. Are there any other tips you guys have on homemade dog food?

    Saying you cook her meals really doesn’t give any details. Do you cook meat and organs? How much? Do you add calcium? Do you add any super foods for trace minerals and antioxidants? What kind of multi are you giving? Do you give any sources of vit E or omega 3s?

    Whenever I cook for her, I use one pound of ground meat, usually turkey. I also add around 1/4 cup peas, carrots, and rice. I give her 21st Century brand multivitamins. I do not give her any extra sources of vit E or omega-3’s, though. She gets two meals per day; 1/2 cup in the morning, 1/2 cup in the evening.

    That doesn’t sound like a balanced diet. Cooking for your dog is great, but you really need to make sure you are doing it right. Look for Dr. Karen Becker’s book, the title is eluding me right now. Or google homemade dog foods. Steve Brown also has a great book.

    Rotate the proteins and use organ meats and eggs and also rotate veggies. And as stated already use calcium and omega 3’s.
