Gators answer good one, unless you feel like cooking for the dog, then make sure it's a good balance of protein( preferably certified organic chicken w/skin! need the fats),starch( rice a good one, less allergy issues) , Veggies(Spinach, Collard Greens, Carrots) and add Brewers Yeast& Garlic( great for Fur& garlic repels fleas.). You can cook all that in one lg Stockpot with water& keep in fridge(after cools of course)up to a week or frozen in smaller portions up to 6 months. Works really good for Dogs prone to allergies or stomach issues. Do make sure you give dog something hard to chew to keep teeth healthy. Great dogs by the way.
