I'm beginning to make food for my 1 dog & 2 cats. i'm looking for a "starter-mix recipe.
I need to start as simply as possible. Does anyone know of a basic recipe-mix (meat, veggies, starch) that could be prepared for both cat & dog, and then corrected for the other? Probably a mix for cats, then add more starch/ veggies for the dog, different supplements for both.... i've got ground turkey, turkey necks, frozen mixed vegs and brown rice. Any ideas appreciated.

Check out dogaware.com for homecooking tips- it's one of my favorite such sites, lots of good nutrition info. Good lists of books to read and other things. It's only dog-related, but many of the books and articles linked to there are cat-related too. The homecooking forum here on dogster is pretty dead- the raw food forum is quite active though, and that might be something for you to consider: prey-model raw diet is appropriate for both species and minimal supplementation is needed (some people don't supplement at all with this type of diet.)

I can't help you much because I feed raw rather than homecooked. You'll find a lot more help by asking the same question in the homecooked forum: www.dogster.com
What I can tell you is, NEVER feed COOKED BONES. Cooking drains them of their moisture and makes them brittle, likely to splinter.
