If you want to cook for your dog, get a vet nutritionist's advice. I applaud your energy--but if you just throw some meat into a pan, your dog's getting an unbalanced diet. A veterinary nutritionist can quickly steer you right and guide you to a few necessary extras, such as a multivitamin and supplementary calcium. You can find a nearby vet nutritionist at petdiets.com. Don't rely on just any Internet info--there's a lot of misinformation out there. When in doubt, get a reputable site from a vet nutritionist.
