**these meat muffins are not a balanced diet, but by including calcium carbonate, you can feed these without upsetting the calcium/phosphorus ratio of your balanced base diet. These can be fed daily mixed in meals or as a treat. Keep treats and extras to 15% or lower, of overall calories.
The NOW calcium carbonate may be found locally in health food stores.
Brussels Sprouts have an impressive antioxidant content and the added fiber has benefits for your dog’s gut health. Butternut squash is a good low-calorie source of potassium and beta carotene. Eggs are an inexpensive source of high biological protein.
