Sorry to divert from topic, but after reading about your experience, just had to share.
It's always greater to hear someone was able to help there dog with a healthy diet.
Not to say I'm better read about BARF after 12yrs than your Vet, however, I can't support Tofu as a longer term protein source. For fish whole Mackerel is pretty inexpensive. I find getting it semi frozen is an easy way to go for cutting it up. You can either toss the chucks in a food processor or cut it to bite size chunks. Ground Turkey & Chicken are also easy to work with. Beef should 70-80% lean. I think Beef hearts are a great value. If you have a wholistic dog food store look into frozen green tripe. I feed that once a week. This is the brand I feed http://www.greentripe.com/
I looked at the Sojos web sight, interesting product. Other than the pecans in one mix it looked o.k. dogs don't really do all that well with nuts with the exception of Walnut oil.
I did notice they use Kelp with I include in my mix. If your dogs blood panel test is ever out of normal range, it may be the iodine from the Kelp. I had that with two of my own dogs. Stopped the Kelp for 2 months normal range on the tests again.
