Thanks for the additional info GoudasMom. I read on one if the sites that yogurt is a good source of calcium too right? All my pups LOVE plain yogurt.

Gotcha on the cooked bones. The site that used the recipe I found and posted originally used a pressure cooker and the author said the bones became soft and fine like fish scales. But I'm scared of pressure cookers anyway. Will stick to boneless.

I doubt I will feed raw bones as well because Gabby's gums bleed a lot when she chews on anything hard. They always have even after a good cleaning with her first surgery removing tumors...

Yes you can use yogurt I even give Kippah yogurt daily she loves it.

I always cooked Goudas food in a slow cooker it worked really well. If I was using fresh veggies I put them right in with the meat I was cooking in he crock pot. If I was using frozen veggies from a bag I didnt put them in right away I did it sometime later. If I used baby food I didnt put them in until I was ready to serve them.

I used either brown rice or oatmeal. Of course with cancer you dont want many carbs ingredients. I made the ratio about 25% of the "recipe" sometimes more.

I only introduced one veggie or fruit at a time just to make sure her system was ok with it and kept it that way for a few days until I was sure she was ok. One dog might not be able to tolerate what another can, they are all different.

Here is a good list of "safe" veggies and fruits to feed and ones to avoid

If you can afford to I would highly recommend adding some herbs/supplements when you figure out the diet that works. I wouldn't want to add too much new stuff right away. I did with Gouda but she had a stomach of steel She could tolerate anything diet wise...Kippah not so much.

If you haven't read this thread please do it's a basic starting point for herbs for cancer

Thanks again! I'll give that thread a read as well. I'm with you on the differences in stomach tolerance. Gabby has a stomach of steel, but Maggie is very sensitive. A little change and she has the runs, bubble guts, and room clearing gas... Oh and itchy paws and ear infections to boot. Hopefully a switch to home cooking will benefit the both of them.
