For those of you wondering how to make dog food, I have a fast and easy recipe that you can make as often or as infrequently as you want to. In fact, I only make it once a month (in a very large batch) then just freeze everything and reheat a portion whenever it’s chow time. There are a few things to keep in mind though.
The first major thing is that there are a lot of things that dogs can’t eat for various reasons, so do some checking before you start handing out the table scraps. Nothing is worse than accidentally making your dog sick (or worse).
The next major thing to keep in mind is that there is a basic ratio to make creating new recipes simple. Dog food (that you make at home anyway) should be roughly one third carbohydrates, one third cooked meat, and one third raw vegetable. Pretty easy isn’t it? To help get your ideas going, here is an easy way how to make dog food that you can even use leftovers for:
1 boneless skinless chicken breast (cooked)
1 cup cooked brown rice (or white)
1.5 cups raw carrots
Simply combine in a food processor (or just chop coarsely) and you’re done! I personally like to make a big batch and freeze it, then just reheat one portion at a time (the dogs love it warm). If you’d like to stretch it a bit, you can always just sprinkle a little of the mixture over dry food. If you are still curious about how to make dog food, the next step is to find other recipes.
