    Biotin, B12, Inositol, Choline, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, B2, B6, Folic Acid etc.
    I started to feed my dog home made food when he was a puppy. I would buy meat (chicken breast, hearts, livers etc.), cut it into small portions and mix them together (amount of meat that I am giving to him daily). In the morning I take it out, cook it in a little bit of water, add some rice and vitamins. I go with Bio-Coat by Nickers since it is dry and doesn’t contain any preservatives and tastes good (yes I did try it myself). He does not like any dry or wet dog food anymore, but I can’t blame him for that (I wouldn’t want to eat that either). He is healthy, shiny and happy and he loves his food.
    I am glad you decided to feed him home made food (it is healthier and cheaper in the long run). Just make sure you provide your dog with enough vitamins and minerals in the diet.

    You may want to add a Glucosamine and Chondroitin supplement to your dogs home made food. A high quality liquid formula can easily be added directly to your dogs food. The glucosamine and chondroitin will help to promote good joint health, and many products like the one I referenced have the much needed Omega Essential Fatty Acids, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, etc. Depending on the weight of your dog, one bottle can last quite a while.

    Making meals for your pup can be very rewarding, because you can be sure of the ingredients that go into it. However, you do have to be careful because dogs need a good blend of vitamins and minerals, so you may want to check with your vet to see what they suggest for the weight and breed of your dog.
