Dog news / Re: Report from FDA (USA) re Dilated Cardiomyopathy

Have they continued this study with raw commercial diets which are grain free and contain some peas and legumes? Are raw feeders using these diets also recording a higher rate of DCM or is it actually a red herring? Are the peas and legumes the problem or is it the way they’re prepared?

Lentils are used in many foods but in some of the fresh cooked they are not cooked enough which possibly means they then can then contain too much lectin which could be a problem for some dogs. Probably something that wouldn’t be a problem for a home cooker or raw feeder.

Home cooking / Re: Cookable raw dog food products

My understanding of the enhancement of commercial dog food is that up to 25% of the RDA (but no more) can be replaced with home cooked food without vitamin and calcium supplementation. This was information that I found on one of the Facebook home cooking for dogs groups.

That's interesting, I haven't come across that.  The amount of Gentle Goat that I was advised to feed is 80g which seems very little and my dog was always letting me know she was hungry.  Initially added cooked vegetables but that didn't seem to be enough and she was going off the Gentle so I have been giving her a scrambled egg or sardine or boiled white fish for one meal, then the cooked meat with most of the portion of Gentle - works out at between 50g - 75g meat and veg with 50g Gentle leaving the rest down in the evening.  Trouble is since I had her spayed in May she has become a lot hungrier and practically mugging me for my food so I have given her a bit more and her weight is creeping up a little.  She is still slim and I want to keep her that way.

Arden Grange give details of proportions when mixing their wet and dry food which is helpful but I imagine it only applies to their products.
