We have a Frenchie, Boston terrier and pit Dobie mix… all that had different issues… Skin/stomach/allergies so I started to just cook for them a few years ago and it has made a huge difference for these issues and they have little to no problems at all with anything anymore. I cook either ground turkey or chicken and mix it with brown rice, sweet potatoes, mixed assorted vegetables and add different things like turmeric and other beneficial ingredients with each batch I make. It’s a lot of work especially for the three of them but I highly recommend it, especially if you only have one dog…it makes it a lot easier to do;)
