first time making homemade, what percentage should be meat?

I decided to try to do home made puppy food for my little shepherd. My question is what ratios should I use? How much meat and organs etc? 30%? Rice and barley? Veggies? Fruits? Yogurt, flax seed, etc? Thanks for any help.

Depends, there are several different methods out there. The one I use is Prey Model Raw. 80/10/5/5. 80% muscle meat, 10% bone, 5% liver, 5% other organs. No veggies or fruits.
