Dog Food (Canine Diet and Nutrition)/Switching Diets & Cooking for my Dog



I have an 8 year old Lab/Shepherd mix and I am looking to change his diet. I would like to start cooking for him, and have been giving him brown rice, chicken and canned pumpkin. But, given his age, I am wondering if I should add any supplements. He is currently very healthy with no joint problems. I am noticing his eyes starting to become a little cloudy though. What would you suggest? Also, if I decide not to cook for him - can you suggest a couple brands of 'reasonable' dog food for purchase?

Thank you,
