Create your own recipes

If you are creating your own recipes, and want to be sure your dog is getting the proper balance of nutrients and percentage of protein, I have found this site to be super valuable - http://nutritiondata.self.com. Once you create the recipes, it will give you the full data just like you would see on a nutritional label on a product you buy at the store. It also gives you the caloric ratio of carbs/fat/protein, and the estimated glycemic load and inflammation factor ratings. You can even save your recipes on the site.

Rainbow Bridge

Scooter passed on in July 2011. She was 15 and lived a good long life. We had to put her down because she was just getting more and more health issues, and I was starting to feel sorry for her.  It was so sad to say goodbye to her and I struggled with the decision for awhile, but I know that we made the right choice for her. I'll never forget my Scooter.
