Just a quick update :
The pup is now primarily on Farmina (pomegranate and ancestral grains) starter (75%)
I do give him RC starter mixed in one meal as well as a boiled egg mixed in in the morning (25%)
I refuse to agree that 100% of a single food is mandatory - assuming each commercial kibble is 100% balanced, mathemetically it does not matter if you mix them in any given proportion
If at all, it should be beneficial as 1 may have certain supplements that the other one doesn't so you are spreading the hedge
Coming to the post by @Ozymandiasmv - much appreciated!
Granted there may not be a direct connection between RC and cancer - but the fact remains that we would never feed ourselves, least of all a baby highly processed food all the time
It is almost conclusively proven for humans that excessive processed food has a correlation with cancer and other illnesses and every human physician would recommend sticking to a diet consisting of fresh food with maybe a little bit of processed food
I don't see why the same would not be true for our dogs!
At some point in time, I would still want to shift to a mix of kibble and home cooked
I must admit though that I found it very surprising that a lot of folks on this thread are of the view that creating a balanced homecooked meal is akin to rocket science
I found a few straightforward recipes such as this
I don't see why Mixing and matching other fresh ingredients , as long as I use a rough scale and a basic spreadsheet should be too difficult
