Hi, Customer. Thanks for the additional information. If you already know that turkey, brown rice, peas, egg, carrot and cod liver oil work for him, there's no reason to stray from what works best. The ideal approach would be to use a veterinary nutritionist consulting company like, input all of the ingredients that work and allow a veterinary nutritionist to give you a formula to work from on how to make the diet nutritionally sound. They will also take into account the fact that he 1) has cancer and 2) has had his gall bladder removed. There's a page following their ingredient choice panel that asks if there are any medical concerns that should be address. You'll just add the information there and let them do the hard work. There is usually a nominal fee but the turn around time is pretty quick. I think this is your best bet for using what you know to work, but also to take not consideration his medical issues.
