Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I recently posted on this forum, about my dog Cheyenne, a year+ old Husky, who has been having trouble with really soft stools and diarrhea. Eventually I found a grain free dog food, that although really seems to work. it's awfully expensive.

We've been considering switching to something home made. I've heard of folks feeding their dogs homemade meals, consisting of chicken or the like ? Was wondering if anyone here does that, or if anyone has any suggestions, for going this route. Like what else should be included.

A bunch of other stuff must be included. I do diy raw. You have to start with deciding whether you want to go the BARF route or the PMR route (fruits and veggies vs. not). Then decide if you want to go raw or if you want to do cooking. Cooking destroys nutrients so there's a little more calculation that goes into home cooking.

When doing diy you have to balance muscle meat, organ meat, and bone content. Within that you have to balance red meat to white meat and, liver to other organs. I do the 80/10/5/5. 80% muscle meat (over half of that percentage is red meat), 10% bone for calcium (there are calcium powders if your dog isn't trustworthy with bones), 5% must be liver, and 5% other organ like kidney.

If you are doing a BARF model then you must factor in the veggies which extends your calculations.
