I had a somewhat similar experience. Joey had a seizure which I correlate to taking Simparica. He looked terrible so took him to the vet when the first seizure happened and he was late Stage 2. Put him on Royal Canin kidney kibble and Hills kidney wet food and 4 years later he has only had 1 more seizure and his kidney values have remained constant. I will believe your homemade version is most likely better if you have the correct proportions. All the best to your Bs! Joey will be 15 in November.
Happy Dog Food

Recently, I have been trying out some alternatives to my dog's evening canned food since at $2 a can it adds up pretty quickly. Last week while at the Davis Food Co-op, I found a food called Happy Dog, http://www.happydogfood.com/ and decided to give it try. I tried the small Original formula and added ground chicken that they sell at the Co-op. Last week when I made it Nicky was the only one making a fuss while they had to wait for it to cook and then cool This week all four are going nuts because they know it is their dinner that is cooking and they apparently want it NOW!!!
I haven't tried their Express or Grain Free formulas yet but probably will after I am done with this batch of Original. So far the dogs are all doing very well on it and they obviously like it. I can make a large batch of it and then separate it into smaller portions and freeze it to pull out as needed. So if anyone is looking for an easy homemade food you may want to give this a try.

I highly recommend a long walk with the dogs while the food cools because mine are constantly asking, "Is it done yet? Are you sure it isn't done yet? I think it might be done."
Thanks for giving me some ideas as to what to swith my dogs raw diet up with. I like what I have read so far, I might have to try it out..

I don't have to be "cooking" anything for Gossy - she jumps around asking those same questions when I'm making anything - even when it's "my" food.
