Hi Nanny. What a great thing to do for your dog. Do you boil the bones for him? I'd say "no onions" LOL. (We could always tell when our dog ate something with onions.)

I worked out a special mix for mine when he was ill with a little help from the 'net and the vet. Granted he had some specific dietary concerns but I made a mix of rice, ground beef, and veggies. He liked peas, carrots, broccoli, green beans. Broccoli and carrot were the favorites though. And my other dog loved apples.

I should say the broc and carrots were actually his main treat for years. He preferred it to anything else (except maybe peanut butter) :)

hi nanny,i give my dog 1 egg every day,keeps her coat shiny,she's a black lab.The browning sauce might have to much salt maybe?What about peas?Little bit of olive oil 1tbsp.will keep his joints moving.I put this in her food once a week.Hope this helps.

What a great deal you got! Look at the ingredients for the browning sauce, might be wheat or soy, and chemicals, maybe too much salt. I'd avoid it if possible. Also, I believe onions aren't good for dogs. Sweet potatoes are great for them and act as a natural dewormer. Rice to help stretch it. Do you remove the skin? I mistakenly gave my dogs the skin from all the chicken and turkey I fixed for us, and turns out it's terrible for them and may be why my lab got pancreatitis. I still feel awful about it. I'm sure you've already researched what he can't have so the sky's the limit with everything else.

I don't have a dog anymore; but my last one was a Yorkshire Terrior..she loved eggs with rice and cheese.

Hi Judy. Is it a gluten thing? My vet had me do chicken and rice when my dog was sick. No gluten in rice. Other ideas....peanut butter, canned turkey or beef gravy or broth, my dogs even liked the juice from my tuna fish. Also, what about quinoa. It is not technically a grain. It actually comes from a plant (not a grass like true grains) And could be a good filler. Not sure of your baby's affliction so hope some of this helps.

no rice- no grain of any kind-- he isn't big on peas o beans or and no corn at all- his allergies are so bad -he was completely bald before we found it was all grains-- he is huge- 140 pounds- he isn't fat - just huge- but i don't want him to get fat either- he is a real boy dog- (not neutered) so very active- and as he is getting older(6) i just want to keep him healthy- he has a few joint problems - nothing major- and a new cyst/tumor- due for check up in april--- i thought of pasta in place of taters- tried barley- it is a no go-- i also wondered about couscous- its pasta right??

Sad but true most vets don't have a good handle on dog nutrition. Grains aren't great for most dogs. I wouldn't do pasta, couscous or barley for that reason. My dog also eats grain free. I also feed my dog a raw diet. If you want to change it up, scrape some beef bone marrow into his food. So good for them. Raw eggs are also good (sounds bad but if you crush the shell up really fine-it's also good for them) A healthy and natural way to help his joints is with a sprinkle of turmeric on his food every day. (turmeric also good for people joints;))

Just my opinion but since you're starting from scratch, I wouldn't add anything that has additives. I'm not familiar with browning sauce. My dog used to LOVE peanut butter flavored biscuits... but he could eat anything, at least at that point.

My dog eats Science Diet WD. It's the only thing that controls her weight. She goes nuts for tuna juice poured over her food..as did my previous dogs. I never thought about dogs liking tuna that much!
