I recommend that you check out the website It is a nutrition site from the UC Davis veterinary college. It is designed to help people who do home cooked meals make the diets complete and balanced. You can pick your protein source and a variety of fruits and veggies and then they will provide an additive that will make it a healthy, complete and balanced diet. You can also put in medical history and have a diet designed for Buster that would be the best suited for his medical condition. It seems to work well for many of my clients. Please ask any follow up questions. You can continue posting on this thread for a few days, even after rating my response. Take care.
