Oh, and I wanted to comment on the 'loose' stools. When you switch a dog from kibble to homecooked or Canned food, they are getting MORE water in their diet, so their stools will be loose for a few weeks.
The dog will ADJUST their water intake DOWN to compensate, because they no longer need as much water to pass the hard kibble. They DO this naturally, there is alot of talk about this on the homecooked forums/groups. Just stick it out for a few weeks, they will firm back up. I promise. And you will notice less trips to the water bowl each day.
I bought a $10 pic from Walgreens, it is double sided and has a light on both ends, when you turn on the light, you can easily see the yellowish tarter, and you just gently scrape it off. I pet Gucci and assure her, and give her some really good treats afterwards
Also, I use the Petslife oral gel, which helps alot, but she'll still get the tarter picked off every other week, there isn't much if you stay on top of it.
