    Kizkiz, this was going to be my next hit. Feeding the puppy home cooked as compared to store bought. I read that all dogs require different food. Is this generic for all dogs even toy dogs? Poms are generally very PICKY little eaters. I get a very good quality ground beef/pork mix here 99% fat free which is what I eat and intend to feed the little furry boy. What sorts of veges are good and which are bad? You mentioned lentils, I heard no beans or peas are good. Can you explain is this will work for the little guy? I want to wean him off what ever the breeder had him on which is commercial to home cooked.

    each dog needs the same types of proteins – pups need one extra they also need other foods such as carbs vits minerals water etc etc

    breed specific diets are diets based on what that breed was given when ‘invented’ this allows for intolerances to be be understood

    some poms are known to be intolerant to chicken – it wasnt a natural food source but they thrive on red meats – not so much lamb

    i do breed – individula diets but let the wee lad settle in first and take your time changing his food – do you know what he has been raised on?

    there are hundreds of posts on here re feeding – work you way through them – type – barf natural feeding etc into the search engine

    no cooked bones is the rule but if you decide to do home cooked food then a bone will help with the teeth

    my client with the 2 feeds hers on cooked root veggies – raw carrots and cauliflower juiced into a mush with minced beef cooked barley and small terrier meal and gives chopped up beef bones to gnaw on – he will need fats – fat is what provide energy so anything that is 99% fat free is not good and it has also been messed with to get it fat free or it is very expensive cuts (which i doubt)  🙂

    beans and peas are excellent for dogs so dont kjnow where you heard that – as long as the beans are washed well and pre soaked and cooked correctly – my lot love dried pea flakes  🙂

    Dont know yet what he has been raised on but the woman said commercial.  I get good high grade beef and pork here, remember, this is Germany and we have many fresh butchers. I go to the butcher and watch them trim the fat off the meat for me, then grind it for me, so no funky stuff is taking place there, I also grind beef and pork, fowl etc for myself from very lean cuts. Sometimes half  of the cow is hanging in the slaughterhouse and you say which cut you want. you can literally buy half of the cow if you want or pig :o. I will put olive oil, fish oil and Omega fatty oils in his food makeup. Also heard peanut butter is a good source as well as other nut oils.

    Can you feed them mushy peas mixed with rice, carrots and meats? I intend to grind the turkey breast, and again, we get lean turkey breast here that I eat myself. Remember, in the wild when they predate before they were domisticated they didnt have fatty meats, most willd animals are lean and not fat like what you see in commercial places. I also head you can give RAW chicken bones? YUCK 😮 I thought NO bones or they choke?

    What I would like to do it have a good organic dry dog food at all times for him IF he feels to nibble, as they tend to eat like birds :-[ and feed him three healthy home cooked meals a day. Snacks inbewteen but also home made to avoid toxic preservatives. You will cringe at what goes into Dog Food 😮

    What I would like are good healthy recipes as I have not done this myself, but have heard many are now doing this. Dog food was only invented in the 1930’s 8)

    i think you need to read some more posts

    have you read feeding bev’s on a rant  ;D

    he may be intolerant to turkey – and no turkey skin at all – it upsets the pancreas

    he needs meat fats – honest  🙂 and they did/do eat the fats in meats – if i give mine a venison or lamb carcass the fat goes first – then the offal then the lean meat and bone  🙂

    dogs get their instant energy from fats

    and i dont do dried – not even organic dried – the fact it is organic is meaningless – it still crap in a bag  🙂

    he can have mushy peas as long as they are home done with no sugar or salt in

    a good healthy recipe is the porridge  🙂

    i think you need my diet info  🙂

    Well that is why I came here, for guidance. I have never fed one of my doggies home cooked except the German Shepard and he also had bagged food and several times a week huge bones from the butcher, but that was back in the US.

    So tell me about these bones? Raw bones with marrow? What kind of bone? and I keep seeing chicken wings 😮 raw? Arent the bones in chicken wings too dangerous ???. When should I start this puppy on bones and if when how big and what kind and shape
