    How do you guys calculate the amount of vitamins/minerals your dogs are receiving from their diet?

    Honestly I do not calculate. I rely on Peanuts overall health and annual bloodwork to tell me that what I am doing is right for him. I try to mix up my proteins, make sure he gets a mix of muscle meat, organs and bones but I also do give coconut oil, flaxseed and right before bed I give him a multi vitamin.

    I don't calculate either. I keep a steady variety of 3-4 proteins regularly, lucky to add in 2-3 others every now and then. Prey Model Raw of muscle meat, bone, liver, other organ (usually kidney).

    Sometimes I get caught up in chicken only rotations so then I add a multivitamin but it's literally only 1-2 meals and then back to a variety rotation.

    I also do annual bloodwork. I supplement sometimes, but not often because he really doesn't need anything.

    I dont add vitamins either, i also rotate different protiens in. mine are all fed a base of chicken, then they have at least one other protein added in for each meal, right now we are rotating llama, lamb, rabbit, elk, beef and salmon in, plus a tripe/organ mix that i make myself.
