If you are changing the dog's diet you should feed them two to three small meals per day like this. The dog you get a 2 to 1 ratio of chicken to rice and it should equal 1 cup. So you give the dog 1/3 cup of chicken to 2/3 cups of rice. This is the right ratio for a 30 pound dog. You can add a few tablespoon of cooked green beans dogs love them and be careful about the fruit you feed the dog. You can also add apples, a little banana, blueberries, carrots, broccoli. and cantaloupe to the dogs food. Just make sure you don't add too much to over feed the dog. Small amount is best when changing their diet.

Skinless deboned chicken baked or boiled is one of the meats we feed our dog. Sweet potato is also good and I would avoid all veggies that create a gassy effect like cabbage for an example. There's more like that, so I'd check it out before serving to my pet. My dog loves peaches and scrambled eggs too.

I also prepare tuna patties leaving out the onion and that is also eaten well and I've also prepared veggie soup with chicken in it. Our girl is quite healthy and full of energy. The only thing about soft foods are the dog's teeth needing cleaned yearly to prevent tooth decay and plaque build up.

This a good question for a Vet. They can give you the right percentage of each ingredient for your dog's weight, age and breed. You would want to get this right for your fur babies health !

Please check with your vet to get feedback on any diet changes. The vet can give you correct serving sizes and let you know if you need to add any supplements.

That's not good for the dog. you might want to check out University of California-Davis. They are an awesome Vet school and there is a whole section about home made pet diets. Pets need so many vitamins and nutrients that you'll need to supply in whatever diet you choose for the animal. Since you love your pet, do your homework and give it the best you can manage.

Be sure to check with your Vet to see if additional supplements are needed. I think chicken and rice may be a little low in calcium and B vitamins.
