You can pre-make large batches, freeze it, and then add vitamin/mineral supplements at the time of feeding.
Note on supplements:
If you are using human supplements, keep in mind that the average human supplement is designed for a 150-pound adult. A cat should get about 1/6 to 1/10 of a human supplement. A dog dosage can be calculated from the weight of the dog compared to 150 pounds. Do not overdose! Some vitamins and many minerals are toxic at high doses.
The vitamin-mineral supplement should be a good quality, human-type supplement, at the very least. Some of the cheaper human supplements, particularly those with a heavy coating, are not well digested by people and will not be by animals.
Bone meal must be an edible, human grade. Do not use bone meal intended for gardening or plants.
Replace potassium chloride with regular table salt. (DO NOT EXCEED DOSAGE GIVEN)
You can easily replace all of the supplements with **Dr. Jone’s Natural Ultimate Canine Supplement, or his **Ultimate Cat Supplement, made specifically for dogs and cats with appropriate dosages according to weigh. Alternately find a good pet supplement of your own liking at any specialty pet store or online. SEE THESE EXAMPLES HERE

So now that you know that MOST Veterinarians have little knowledge about Pet nutrition, and that they have strong FINANCIAL INCENTIVES to NOT change, can you see how you should Question their Pet Food recommendation?
