D
ue to a recall of dog foods in March and April 2007, dog owners more than ever need information on canine nutritional requirements as well as on homemade dog foods and diets. The recall, due to the discovery of melamine in wheat, rice and corn supplements from China, affected about 1 percent of dog foods in the U.S. -- mainly "wet" food sold in cans and pouches.

Still, there is need for dog nutrition information and even for dog food recipes. We urge you to learn from the resources below, but also to talk with your veterinarian about any changes to your dog's diet.
