    Patty I found some kidneys! really gross LOL.
    This is my New formula for my 11 year old 50 lb best friend
    12 oz cooked meat
    2oz mixed organ meat * liver, heart, gizzard, kidney
    2 oz ground veggies
    1 raw egg no shell
    1/2 cup raw goats milk
    fish pill
    vit E
    Multi vitamin.
    all foods vary weekly. CALCIUM question! My dog is doing better and better and will be off his Calcitriol pill very soon. One of his other calcium pill was…..Tums! apparently Tums is Calcium carbonate. Do you think I could just continue to give him these for his calcium needs?

    Thanks for responding Patty! Calcium is an issue because my dog has had surgery for Hypercalciema. He had a tumor on one of his para thyroids and the thyroid was removed . all of this is which regulates my dogs calcium levels. His other para thyroid and his thyroid are just starting to kick in to work again. He is on Calcium meds, which we are slowly kickin to the curb!
    No egg shell, just the egg.
    What other organ meat is there? The veg are chopped up, not pureed. should they be? I though I would be able to get rid of the E if I used a multivitamin.

    Greatly appreciate your help

    I think I have sooo confused myself, and I would greatly appreciate it if someone could look over how I am feeding my dog and let me know that I am doing it right? or wrong?
    I have a 12 year old 50 lb guy with a few issues.
    I feed him one pound of food a day.
    he gets
    8oz cooked meat
    2oz cooked liver
    4oz cooked veggies
    1 raw egg
    1/2 cup raw goats milk
    fish pill
    vit e
    Calcium is an issue he has and the Vets monitor his calcium levels closely.
    I plan on adding in the mulit vitamin and getting rid of the vitamin e
    his meat and veggies vary every week.
    does this sound like i’m on the right path? or do you think his meat should be more?
    thank you
