|A dog with a yeast problem is a perfect candidate for PMR. It is super super easy too, if you're looking for that. Any fruit or veggies or grain or corn is excellent nutrition for the yeast more so than the dog.
Grinding meat is for the emotional comfort of the human, not for the dog. Once you experience a few days of watching your dog chomp on a chicken quarter... Including the do-overs (dog chomps on meaty bones, swallows, realizes he didn't chomp on it good enough so he hacks it back out and chomps on it some more... it's scary to watch at first but I got used to that after a couple incidents)... you'll throw out your grinder. But yes, there are those who can't handle that risk, so they just grind everything up, which is just fine if you don't mind doing that work.
Here's a sample of a PMR "recipe" for a week for a 60 lb active dog (target at 1.5-2 lbs a day) who has been on PMR for a while.
Day 1 - 1/3 of a whole chicken (usually doesn't come with innards if bought from the grocery), around 1.5-2 lbs
Day 2 - 1 lb ground beef(cheaper) or beef chunks and 8 oz beef heart (heart is cheaper than ground beef), 4 oz beef liver
Day 3 - 1 lb boneless pork chops, 8 oz chicken gizzards (cheaper than pork chops), 4 oz beef kidney
Day 4 - gorge on a 3lb whole rabbit carcass.
Day 5 - fast
Day 6 - 1.5 lb fish (some dogs do better with fish after a fast), one whole egg (including eggshell)
Day 7 - 1.5 lb turkey breast with bone, 2 oz green tripe, 2 oz liver
Rinse, lather, repeat.
