Thanks, 3cat.
This is the updated edition of Strombeck's book.
A limited Google books preview:

There's also a good listing of nutritional consults in Chapter 1 on Homemade Diets, also previewed here as a pdf and without
some of the missing pages:

Worrisome to me is the adoption of AAFCO standards in this updated edition.

I got this, and I think I am going to buy Strombeck's book anyway (I've had it before from the library). I liked that older edition offered alternatives, i.e. clams in juice instead of taurine. I guess I would have preferred something with as little powdered stuff as possible for maximum control over ingredient quality.

Now if only they would eat cooked, argh. I can't feed raw on regular basis since raw meat from acceptable sources (New Zealand, Australia) is often not fresh enough to feed raw (depends how lucky I am to find it still partly frozen in the supermarket, then it is OK, otherwise if fully defrosted, diarrhea follows). They love raw but they won't eat cooked.

Honestly, Alek, I think it's a war of nerves owners can win with their pets, as I'm afraid of bacterial contamination, too.
It took somewhere between one and two months of constantly adding more and more homecooked to commercial at my house.
I don't think many are lucky enough to be able to plop down straight homecooked and get their pets to eat it immediately,
at least with cats. I do think it takes a while to break through the possibly addictive additives in commercial pet food.

I have Strombeck's book and gave a copy to my vet. Most ingredients in Strombeck are food derived and I like that idea, too.

One little piece of cooked chicken on the plate with canned food results in no one eating it, even when sprinkled with freeze dried.
But I am stubborn. We'll try with hybrid approach for the time being, and after we move to a new bigger place we'll try again for adding home-cooked meat.

I guess I am reasonably happy with what I am feeding them for canned (smells and looks like real food, simple ingredients, even has "human grade" in big red letters on top of the can) but I am concerned whether they have sufficient variety so I'd like to at least mix in some home-cooked or add some ingredients to their canned. S&S love boiled eggs, Mitzie didn't like it.

alek, that sounds like a good plan. Mine are somewhere between 70 to 80 percent homemade at this point, and I have almost 2&1/2 years of bloodwork and followup exams that would seem to indicate
with a variety of Strombeck recipes cats stay where they should nutritionwise. Plus they just turn
up their noses at a lot of commercial foods they used to eat when those picky appetite sessions
occur and act like they don't recognize the commercial stuff as food. Turn about is fair play, I guess Grin

Still don't have too many opinions on edition two of this book that has adopted AAFCO standards.
Anyone besides me a little leary of the last ten years of pet food research? Or do you find the
2nd edition recipes better and more inclusive? I'm no nutrionist; so I'm hoping to learn.

I got a copy from the library but it had to go back. So that is definitely a way to take a look without spending
$50 or so on the book. And I'd sure like other eyes looking at it, too, before I get really specific about what
I saw at least in the renal section.

On the surface, the book referred to in the original post, Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets, 2nd Edition, Patricia Schenck  would appear to be a comprehensive and useful book.

However, it contains a major error in that it refers to baking soda as calcium carbonate. Baking soda is listed as an ingredient throughout the recipes. Baking soda is SODIUM bicarbonate not CALCIUM carbonate. Anyone blindly following this would deprive their pets of an essential mineral.

If this serious mistake was allowed through uncorrected I wonder if there are other mistakes. This error is mentioned in 2 reviews on Amazon, but can also be seen three quarters of the way down page 8:

http://www.amazon.com/Home-Prepared-Dog-Diets-Patricia-Schenck/dp/0813801192#reader_0813801192

or in the pdf file linked to previously by 3Cat:  (where are you 3Cat? Cry)

Does anyone know how to contact Dr. Schenck?

Would be helpful to ask her about this, and find out how it happened.

I find several references online, but can't figure out where she practices.
