Anybody ever try the veterinarian's recipes on this site for home cooking dog or cat food and/or the Balance-It supplements?

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

The recipes are identical (as in word-for-word) to the cat and dog recipes I bought at $50 each from PetDiets.com in April. I also bought the recommended supplements from Balance-It. I used the recipes for about two weeks until the Strombeck and Pitcairn books I ordered arrived.

I didn’t use the Balance-It supplements. I made one cat recipe with it and then threw them away. I’m very picky about how things smell, and to me the supplements reminded me of the disconnection in smell when I walk down the garden chemical aisle in the grocery store. They are synthetic supplements, and they smell ‘chemically’ to me. And although it was probably my imagination, it seemed to add an off taste to the food I didn’t like. So we did without supplements except for some heart and liver until the Nature’s Logic got here.

I haven't used it, but I'm kind of curious as to why they use so much rice. 64% of the canine diet I took a peek at is rice by weight.  I thought one of the benefits of home cooking was getting away from a largely grain diet.

Thank you, I was wondering that too. Also it needs taurine.

CarolPW,

Would you please write down the supplements and the brand names of what you use.  Identifying which ones to use seems to prevent many pet owners from trying real food.

Thanks.

JustMe,

That's a very good link.  In fact, one of the best I've seen.

Thanks for posting.
