In your shoes I'd look into homecooked - same carb-free option but without the pathogen risk.

my favorite basic raw fed website (this really helped me get started)

I do all kinds of meat/protein sources in one meal.
I aim for "balance over time" and have stopped trying so hard to get the perfect percentages every meal lol and it has worked for us!

Disclaimer: I work for Trupanion and love it/our policy! But I do not speak for the company or as the company.

Homecooked is ok, but the more you cook the food, the more you cook out the nutrition. Then you have to add supplements to cover what you lost. The same thing they do with kibble.

Dogs are really at a very low risk of any sort of bacteria or anything because of such high stomach acids. Raw is what they are designed to be able to eat, the way nature intended.

Raw digests much faster than cooked or kibble so nothing sits around in the stomach long enough for there to any problems.
