Possibly the only reason for the vegetables in the dog food that you make at home is for the various pigments (carotenoids), some of the natural phytins, terpenoids, fiber, both soluble and roughage and finally and most importantly, feeding beneficial bacteria in the G.I. tract that depend on a small amount of plant material.
But in order for a home cooked diet based on low carb to work, you need to exclude potatoes and corn, peas and limas because they are naturally starchy.

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
For me, filtration-of-choice
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
