I'm readjusting a recipe I had created for my growing GSD puppy. He's 12 weeks now and I thought I could modify the recipe and it would save under the new name but instead, I overwrote the original recipe. Is there anyway to get the original back?

Secondly, I'm readjusting the recipe and I cannot seem to fulfill the requirements for several nutrients, phosphorus and Vitamin D, K, Manganese and Iodine. I've already added 17 ingredients to the recipe, am over in the calories and still can't balance the recipe. Help?

TIA

Hi Jammntp,

Sorry but you cannot get the original recipe back.

Please attach the Recipe Nutrient Report and the Pet Recipe Analysis Report.

See links below.

Hi Jammntp,

I have reviewed your recipe. There are too many user-defined ingredients for me to actually help you as I do not have the data. What I can tell you though is to start eliminating many of the ingredients that are not really necessary. You are using bone meal so get rid of chicken feet. Do you really need two meat sources? Chicken and beef? Try just one.

You have too many spices. Get rid of the following:

Seeds, sesame butter, tahini, from raw and stone ground kernels
Peppermint, fresh

Get rid of the organic wheat grass.

After eliminating these ingredients, see where you stand.

The best way to formulate is to add the following in order:

muscle meat
organ meat
balance fats
balance minerals
balance vitamins
