Thank you Margot and Karla. I know I have a lot of questions but odis is my first dog and we always hade dogs in the house growing up but all of them where healty happy dogs... I also googled zuchinni. In south africa its  know as baby marrows. They harvest the fruit before they outgrown I don't supose this influences nution. Didn't know this I just asked the people at the fruit and veg store for zuchinni they looked at me like I was crazy... Wil get some tommorow. Also do you know what pumkins are used to make canned pumkin I saw about 3 large pumkins and pot pumpkins also there are  pumkin frozen in bags does not state which it is. Thank you for advice... Good nite to all...

Hoping Karla sees this as she us a good source for diets and nutrition.

You can also do a Google search for home cooked balanced duets for dogs or something like that.
No zucchini?  Plant some. :-)
