Dear "Goldens R Great": You are most welcome. As much research and time as I spent trying to figure out this homecooked diet thing, I would LOVE if others could benefit from all of the time I spent. Aside fr trying to figure out Mason's allergy issues, it is THE hardest thing I've ever done for him. I did give him lots of supplements, and I'll tell you a cheap way to get the calcium in them. I gave him hardboiled eggs (I learned it is one of the best things a dog can eat.) I let the eggshells dry and then ground them into a "powder" in my coffee bean machine and then sprinkled them on his food. (It's a certain measurement per pound of weight.)
I know what you mean @ them not liking the Rx diet. I had my boy on -- I think it was Science Diet "ZD" (the one for allergies). He didn't like it either (honestly, that's the only diet he ever really didn't like; he wasn't a picky eater). I do hope you're able to help young Finn with his digestive issues and that he can have a long, good life -- and ENJOY eating!! I will "stop by" this forum occasionally to see how he is doing, so please continue to post.
"Tayla's Mom" and "Luke's Mom" -- So glad that you have found some options. I know someone else who feeds S&C's, and her boy loves it, too.
I miss my boy SO, SO much. It is therapeutic for this doggy mommy's heart to continue to participate in this forum -- and makes my heart happy that you all are trying to take such great care of your babies, too! I may not have a Golden in my life right now, but they will ALWAYS be #1 in my heart!
