This question is actually for my mum. Her chihuahua Pixel has digestion problems and it got worse during the last few months. She's tried many different kibbles, but nothing works (Pixel has mostly been on Royal Canin most of her life... prescribed by the vet for her problems
). I've been trying to convince her to switch to a better food or homemade diet and she's finally decided to give home cooked a shot... and surprise! Pixel is doing better than ever!
The only problem is, I'm worried the recipes she's following are not balanced and lacking calcium. I told her about the "80% meat, 10% organ (at least 5% liver) and 10% bone" rule to follow with the raw diet and suggested to follow that with the cooked diet too, but what would be the best thing to replace the bones with? She hates the idea of handling raw meat and bones so there's no way she'll feed raw bones. I told her about ground egg shells, but I don't think she'll want to do that. lol
So what's the easiest way to make sure there's the right ratio of calcium in a cooked diet? Or does anyone have good recipes that are definitely complete?
