hi there! here is what i do 1. use reverse osmosis purified water for ALL cooking and drinking 2. main mixer/base is organic brown rice and beef (the beef from the whole foods meet counter so hormone free, etc.) i use ground round b/c chuck has too much fat and sirloin too lean. 3. in my main base above on different days (i switch between apples and vegetables) i blend up fresh organic apples one day, and the the next i blend organic spinach, i use brocoli sometimes, but i use spinach and apples more often. 4. every day in the morning i add 1 TBSP of raw organic coconut oil (very good at fighting the flu, antibacterial..etc)start slowly w/the coconut oil.. can make them really have to go to the bathroom if you use too much to start! 5. everyday in the AM is sprinkle celctic sea salt for minerals and for the thyroid etc... 5. in the eve meal i add organic olive oil. 6. everyday they also get a probiotic and 1000 mg omega 3 fish oil cap (this i take out of the gelatin capsul - gelatin is an awful preservative), and they get a digetive enzyme with each meal. 7. i am sure their diet is lacking in something - but they look amazing, have zero allergies, and are really happy despite the fact that i used to walk them 6 miles every morning (before i got sick) and have not been on a long walk in a 17 mos - breaks my heart but i love them and they are happy. 8. hope this helps and sorry for the misspellings. hope you AND your dogs are great! i will answer any questions i can.
