I have three dogs. One of them, Ace, has a very bad yeast issue. After trying multiple kibbles, and researching even more, it has become apparent that I’m going to have to start cooking his food myself. I’ve been researching home cooked and raw diets and I can not do raw. I barely eat meat myself so my stomach just isn’t strong enough for all of that. Does anyone have experience cooking for your own dogs and (hopefully) have experience with specialty diets? For example, Ace can’t have ANY of the following:
No potato (including sweet)
No white/brewers rice
No soy flour
Every time I bring up a home cooked diet to my vet I don’t really get an answer. It is more like he tells me I can do research and figure what I like best for him. That doesn’t help in any way because I have no idea where to start, especially with so many restrictions.
Ace is 63lb, Lola is 61lb, and Zeus is 15lb. All are moderately active and the 15lb Zeus has a high metabolism. They will all get the same home cooked meal just to be safe (don’t need him licking their bowl and getting a yeast flare up). If you can suggest how much food to serve each day that would be very helpful too! I can’t cook for myself every day so cooking for the dogs daily is near impossible. If I can make extra and store it that would be fabulous.
Any help, or pointing me in the right direction, is very much appreciated. I am completely lost and sick of trips to the vet.
