This service is for people who are feeding a home cooked diet to their dog.
Giving your dog home cooked diet all the time translates to taking full responsibility for all of your dog’s nutritional requirements. Therefore, you should understand that dogs need different types of diet in different situations or phases of their growth.
- Dogs with health problems need a specific diet
- Puppies need a more nutritious diet
- Large-breed puppies, prior to puberty, need a low-calcium diet
- Diets high in carbs can make your dog fat
There are several types of home-cooked diets or recipes out there that you can find online. Since every dog has a different dietary requirement, you need to ensure whether the diet you are feeding is right for your dog’s specific requirements.
If you have been giving home cooked diet to your dog, you might want a diet analysis to check the nutrient values – calories, protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, and balance of calcium/phosphorus and fatty acids. Your diet analysis is then compared to the current recommended allowances set forth by the National Research Council (NRC) for your dog’s specific age, weight and activity level.
I purchased special pet diet designer software that allows me to formulate customized recipes for dogs and check to make sure they meet the NRC guidelines to be “complete and balanced” and meet the dietary guidelines for specific needs.
Why get a Diet Analysis?
In an independent study of 200 homemade recipes for adult dogs made available to pet owners through the internet and books, only 5 (2.5%) were nutritionally balanced, and those 5 were formulated by veterinarians with advanced training in nutrition. This study was conducted by the School of Veterinary Medicine at University of California and published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Assoc. June 2013.
When I did an analysis of several online recipes, I found that only 1 of them met all requirements with recommended supplements. Many only said “add calcium and multi-vitamin” without any specifics.
If you are not adding any supplements to your current home cooked diet, then this analysis will tell you exactly how much to add.
The biggest reason to get this diet analysis report is because every dog is different and their diet should be formulated based on their specific health requirements.
Up until now, you would have to pay a Veterinary Nutritionist between $200 – $300 to create a special diet for your dog. But now, I’m offering to do the analysis of your diet and give you a nutrient report that shows you exactly what’s in your diet and more specifically what’s missing or does not meet the NRC recommended nutrition requirements for YOUR dog.
This report will answer questions like:
- How much calcium should you be adding to your dog’s diet to keep it balanced with the phosphorus?
- How many calories should you be feeding your dog?
- How many calories are in the recipe you’re feeding your dog?
- How much should you be feeding your dog every day to stay at a healthy weight?
- How much protein is in the recipe you’re feeding your dog? Is it too much or too little?
- What nutrients are missing or low in the diet you’re feeding your dog?
- How much of each nutrient does your dog need? And how much does your diet provide?
I want everyone to know what’s in their dog’s diet and help you make your dog’s home-cooked diet as healthy as possible.
I’m offering this service for a very low introductory price. Plus I have several options.
Diet Analysis Process:
I will enter your current diet into the Pet Diet Designer software, do product research for any supplements you are using and review your dog’s specific needs. Then I create a daily and batch version of your diet and balance it according to NRC requirements. I create reports and send them to you via email. You can then ask any questions via email. If you purchased the additional consultation we will discuss your dog’s dietary needs, and supplements on the phone.
Veterinarians love these diet analysis reports!
Plus if you show it to your Vet and she has some recommendations for changes, I can help you make those changes for a small additional fee (if you purchased Option 1). These changes are free if you purchase any other option.

I have studied canine nutrition for 2 years and I have been using the Pet Diet Designer software for a year to create custom diets for my own dogs and clients with dogs with liver disease, kidney disease and diabetes.

I am NOT a Veterinarian Nutritionist. The diet analysis reports I provide are created by pet diet designer software. The recipes and diet analysis are intended for educational purposes only. Please use your Veterinarian to confirm the use of any of these home cooked recipes with your dog. Ultimately you are responsible for the diet and treatment that your dog receives. Neither Cyndi Smasal, nor Hope for Healing Dogs Resource Center is responsible for any adverse reactions or effects resulting from using the diet information contained in the these reports.
