I agree with Dottie, if you're in a premium dog food, supplementing more might be counter productive.

I think its the raw food. It could be the bones from the chicken wings you are feeding that punctured her behind.

Or high calcium intake from those bones leading to constipation.

+1 to homecooking.  At least you know what ingredients you put on her food.

It just looks more time consuming than giving him raw diet.

I think the ingredients and where these were sourced is what is important. 

yes IT IS TRUE that calcium rich foods are not good for large breeds.

there are puppy foods especially designed for large breeds, they should have been on those.

you can check it with your vet.

I can't recommend a food because I'm also in the process of learning. Just curious why do you want him to gain weight? isn't dogs supposed to be lean?

Tinyplanets, the recipe looks yummy for a human to eat minus the parsley though. Will try some of these recipes when I got the time.

on your item #3, I think I've read somewhere that air/freeze dried food is where the nutrients are questionable because of the process of drying.

It says: "There is some concern of nutrients, such as vitamins, being lost during the dehydration process."
its on wikipedia. Can't post the link though.

Hi  :)

I'm new to this forum, its my first time owning a puppy so I need all the help I can get in raising one.

I understand that it is not just joy but also my responsibility to keep my dog well.

I hope I learn much from lurking and asking on this forum.
