I was wondering if their is a recipe for a homemade BALANCED base mix that we can mix in with meat. Right now we use The Honest Kitchens Preference base mix and for the first 2 weeks his itching stopped now he is itchy again. He is also having a lot of eye boogers constantly throughout the day.

DETOXING:
Most kibble is chucked full of chemicals and additives, then, there are the toxins in vaccinations, and flea/tick topicals. Because of this, when switched to a raw diet/real food, the immune system is affected and the dog begins a “healing” as some people call it, or more commonly called a “detox” or “herxing” as their body tries to purge the toxins. When you change to raw/real food, those “toxins” have to somehow escape the body. Dogs could show upsetting signs such as drainage from the ears and/or eyes, vomiting, diarrhea, stool that will smell SO bad it would make the strongest stomach urp! Stool with strange colors, mucousey stool, discharge from the penis or vagina, bad breath, itching….even MORE than they were itching before, licking themselves, and they could also detox through the skin and you’d see things such as open sores, losing hair, or making them smell like last week’s garbage that’s been rotting out in the sun!

Balance It offers a home-made program too, with lots of ingredient variations (though you have to either buy their supplement or pay them for the recipes). These are vet-nutritionist developed recipes -- the buy who's in charge is affiliated with the UC-Davis vet school. Go to BalanceIt.com for more info.

Playing around with their recipe generator will show you how incredibly hard it is to get it right.
