Thanks for all the info and advice on homemade foods. Growing up all my dogs were fed homemade food, and I'm not sure why I didn't continue, looking back. I'm doing lots of research to make sure that I do it the best way possible within my budget and lifestyle. There is so much info out there, that it takes a bit of work to sort through it all, and real world input is greatly appreciated. Can anyone fill me in on taurine? I have more reading to do, but I'd appreciate any info.
