Hi guys!

I'm considering switching Winnie to home cooked, but I don't know what supplement I should use, or how to go about figuring out the levels of all the vitamins in each serving of the supplement.

Any suggestions for me?

Thanks (BTW Sedona, you are a genius!)

I figured out I could make a custom 'food' for the supplements on ND and add them to the recipe. Here is a super easy one. Usually I needed to use custom entry as otherwise you have to calculate % of requirement which is an extra step for most supplements.

The point of the 21 steps is to formulate a recipe without using any supplements! If you work hard enough you can do it all except for calcium.

Here is my egg shell calcium.

Tanks, Sassy! If Winnie continues to respond negatively to kibble (we've tried many, many different proteins/grains/grain free, etc.) then we'll try home cooking out, though how we're going to find a ground meat other than chicken or beef is beyond me!

I found that my food processor could chop cooked meats but not raw. So Sassy could have chicken, beef from any cut, pork and lamb on rare occasions.

Food isn't medicine but it is the foundation for health so good you are being so observant here. Sassy was stinky and had anal sac issues on any kibble but was better on home cooked food. I never thought food was the problem but even for that minor issue a change sure made the difference.
