|I suggest reading through the B-Naturals newsletters and dogaware's most excellent sites on feeding dogs. Dogaware has a short list of do not feeds listed. There are very few veggies and fruits dogs cannot eat and many opinions on the subject!
If I was forced to feed Max a cooked diet I would be feeding something like the low glycemic one on the B-Natural site.
If you work through the steps in Sedona's thread on balancing a diet in 21 steps that should help.
Since you are open to raw feeding check out the hounds' recent thread. They are planning to feed mostly cooked food but offer an edible meaty bone a couple times a week for calcium instead of fussing with egg shell or bone meal in the cooked food.
Don't be concerned with vitamin overages so much. Check how AAFCO's standards allow for a wide range and if you have a kibble bag in the house see how that kibble meets the standard.
