I'm so sorry Keely got sick... you must have been so worried about her! Hugs to you both
I'm glad she's feeling better and making a good recovery. Nookies immune system wouldn't be able to handle it either.

If you want to stick with a kibble, we give Nookie Addiction-Salmon Bleu once in awhile. The home cooked alone just doesn't cut it for maintaining his weight. It's an Australian Company and they have their own dedicated plants in Australia and the U.S. They are known for novel proteins and limited ingredients for dogs that have sensitivities/allergies, but are AAFCO compliant for all life stages. We have been using it for about 4 months now and Nookie and Montana are both good on it. They have never been part of any recall and don't use any ingredients sourced from China. There's always a "risk" with any commercial food because it isn't regulated, but this one seems to be pretty good. The only thing I don't like is they don't use any pre or probiotics, but we give Nookie Forti-Flora daily anyway, and will probably start Montana on it too, so it's ok. These are the ingredients in the Salmon Bleu:

Salmon Meal, Potatoes, Chicken Fat (Naturally preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Smoked Salmon, Dried Blueberries, Dried Cranberries, Dried Raspberries, Calcium Carbonate, Dicalcium Phosphate, Potassium Chloride, Kelp Meal, Flaxseed Meal, Calcium Propionate, Zinc Sulfate, Zinc Oxide, Ferrous Sulfate, Manganese Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, Calcium Iodate, Cobalt Carbonate, Sodium Selenite, Vitamin E Supplement, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Niacin (Vitamin B3), D-Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5), Thiamine (Vitamin B1), Vitamin A Supplement, Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6), Biotin (Vitamin B7), Folic Acid (Vitamin B9), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement

With added:
- Smoked Salmon for that extra gourmet taste dogs love
- Raspberries with unique phytonutrient content rich in Vitamins B & C
- Glucosamine for joint health

- Grain
- By products, Fillers, Corn, Wheat, Soy, Artificial Colors and Flavorings

And this is the website:
