Our new boy came home with us last night. He will be 12 weeks old on Wednesday. The breeder had him on Royal Canin bulldog puppy food. I will be cooking his food for him along with my other two dogs (different breeds). Is there anything I need to do differently for a puppy? I use Balanceit.com autobalancer for the recipes and have the Balance It vitamins that I add to the menus to make them complete for my adult dogs. I am worried about puppy and his needs. Any thoughts?

I would top the meals with bone broth. Loaded of minerals. Boiling a turkey for over 8hrs will do the trick. Remove all fat. Don’t over supplement if they’re eating home cooked. It’s in our food. Just a multi vitamin like regular centrum will do. Liquid multi vitamin is better as the body absorbs all. I use to home cook for Nyala as a pup.she had crystals n I put a full stop on all kibbles. I home cook n crystals never returned. Then my dogs went on partial raw to full raw. :)

Started weaning Bubba over to Lamb and Rice with a little bit of parsnip and some green beans. He loved it. But then, puppies seem to like almost everything. And he came with NuVet vitamins. I will keep him on these unless you know of a better brand.

He came with a NuVet bottle...cute lolll

Some members here do give NuVet to their dogs so yes finish the bottle. But since yours is eating home cook meals no need to over supplement. Natural Nutrients are already in the meals. Giving supplements to prevent a possibility down the road is like like a guessing game to me. But that’s me. I’m more on the holistic side so I personally don’t supplement my dogs cause they’re on a raw diet. I have “nothing” against NuVet either. Like I mentioned broth is loaded of minerals. Minerals are way more important than vitamins as just like in humans it’s always a deficiency we lose when we go for #1 and/or our lifestyle. So up to you :)
