Why would you have to check with a vet before switching to homemade dog food?
If not all store-bought dog food is good and home-made is probably better for the dog, why would you have to check with your vet? I mean, I get that a change might upset the dog, but what if you mixed his dog food in w/ the homemade food like you would as if you were changing dog foods…. or am I completely wrong? Would feeding a puppy with homemade food be a bad idea, or better than store-bought pup food?
Personally, I wouldn’t check with the vet at all. The average veterinarian was never taught anything about proper pet nutrition. Even my own vet told me that feeding Orijen was overkill and Purina was fine. Now my dog is on a raw diet and my vet giggles over this.
Just make sure your homemade food does not include anything that is toxic to dogs (based on your dogs size, your dog may be able to tolerate smaller amounts)
Could you suggest a dog diet or book for cooking homemade dog food?
I have two 18 month old chihuahuas. They got sick ( runny doo doo ) The vet suggested a temporary diet where I cook for them. bland mashed chicken and rice, then switch back. Switching back made them sick again. They are doing okay now with the homemade food.
After looking at the ingredients in a lot of dog food brands, I have decided I don’t want to buy pre-made food anymore.
Can you suggest a cook book for dogs?
Yes I will verify with my vet.

What are YOUR homemade dog food recipes?
I just recently had a huge scare with my dog due to dog food. To prevent this from ever happening again (and to make her healthier) I’ve decided to make my dog homemade food. I was wondering if anyone had any really good and healthy recipes to share with or if they had a really good site to recommend to me for my dog. Thanks a bunch
