A better diet choice for your puppy would be home made meals made of 1/3 lean protein such as chicken, turkey, lamb, beef, eggs or fish, 1/3 long acting carbohydrates such as rice, pasta, potatoes or oatmeal and 1/3 fresh vegetables.

Cook them any way you prefer, mix together, then add a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil. The extra virgin olive oil enhances the foods smell and taste and is a great source of essential omega-3 fatty acids.

Finally season it up so it tastes good. The top 3 flavors most dogs like re barbecue sauce, pasta sauce and tamari sauce. You can buy low sodium tamari at most grocery stores.

Then be sure to add a natural, comprehensive canine vitamin supplement to balance out your dogs home made diet.
