It's hard to say Hudson. Have you analyzed your diet on NutritionData.com or something similar, and compared it to your dog's nutrient needs? If so, what nutrients was he deficient or abundant in?

From looking at it, and not knowing how much of what you feed in your diet, you may be giving too much Vitamin A as the cod liver oil and the supplement has a lot. That's hard to say though cause I don't know how much CLO he's getting.

You'll need to do an analysis and see what you're deficient in. There is no way any of us can say for certain if the Nupro is balancing his diet or not.

You make a recipe. Uhh...here I'll walk you through one real quick.

1. Create an account and go back to the home page.pic


2. Enter the food you need to look up and it's category and press search. pic


3. Pick the option that most closely resembles what you used and click on it. pic


4. Click add to tracking. pic


5. Pick the quantity you need and slick save and analyze. pic



Now do the same with the rest of your diet. Like so and click save and analyze.pic


Once you're done scroll down. That's where all the nutrient information is for your recipe. pic



You compare those numbers to your dog's nutrient needs. You can find that spreadsheet in the raw forum. If you do not have Excel ask someone and we'll be happy to figure out your dogs needs for you.

You can add your own "food" too. Like the Nupro supplement. You go to TOOLS, then click on Custom Entry Tool. Easy as pie. way to go

Love the illustrations Sedona!

Only one thing to add. Under Custom Entry it is a bit easier math wise to enter a custom food under Advanced Entry because you don't have to convert your mg to % human requirement first.
