      • That is hard to calculate when you are making your own dog food. Since I rotate grains and proteins, and have started adding Quinoa, different kinds of rice, different fruits and veggies. All these have different calorie counts. I just keep an eye on the rib cage and if start to look too fluffy, cut back, too thin increase. It’s like if your favorite jeans are too tight you know to skip the sweets for a few days 🙂

  1. We made our own dog food for many years (roughly 2005-2010) when our mastiff had a disorder that prevented her from digesting commercial food. We used a formula to combine meat, grain, vegetable, and a special dried dog food made by Flint River Ranch which preserved more of the nutrients. It certainly helped our dog. Now, there are grain-free kibbles on the market and high-quality dehydrated meat foods, so we use that for our current dogs. They don’t have the same issues. Making our own dog food for such large dogs involved a very active membership at Costco and several hours each week, pressure cooking meat, making rice, etc. It was worth it, but it was a huge effort.
