Does anyone know what % of meat, organs, veggie and or grain to use in a home cooked dog and cat food diet.

I have been looking on line and I know I have seen it before but can't seem to find it so I thought maybe one of you guys would have some links or know.

Also does any one have a baked kibble recipe for dogs,  also for cats? I've  have been looking but I'd like to have one that is balanced or be able to add supplements to it to balance it out.

My little guy (shih poo) really liked the Flint River Ranch baked kibble but I don't think the wheat in it agreed with him so I'd love to give him some thing home made to munch on for a snack also wouldn't mind one for my kitties to snack on too.

Am hoping to start rotating different diets for my guys.

any info and help will be Greatly Appreicated.
I really appreciate all the advise , info and help you all have given me so far. And esp appreciate the recipes some of you have shared with me. I am diffenently going to be trying them out on my guys soon.
Good nite

Raw cat feeders use the 80 / 10 / 5 / 5 guideline – that’s 80%-87% meat, fat, skin, sinew, connective tissue and heart, 5%-10% edible bone, 3%-5% liver, and 5% other secreting organ - which is simply the rough average of typical feline prey percentages (rodents are ~ 5% bone and 4% liver, rabbits are slightly less than 10% bone and less than 4% liver, and birds have an even lower bone and organ content).

Best regards.

I think I remember reading it in one of the B-Naturals newsletters a few times, mels.  (good luck finding it!)

I have run across a few baked kibble recipes, but don't remember where.  I considered it when I first started cooking for the pets.  But I decided it was extra work and electricity (or gas) to bake already cooked food dry when they like it so much in just-cooked form.  Plus more cooking means less nutrients.  The Honest Kitchen boxes have some biscuit/treat recipes.  You might be able to use a biscuit recipe to make kibble.

There's a dog baked kibble recipe in the Pitcairn book. I've never tried it & don't know anyone who has though. I just use Nature's Logic for their occasional dry fix. I'll pm you the recipe if you want to try it.
