Healthy Dog Food Recipes

Once you get the hang of it, preparing healthy dog food recipes aren’t that mind boggling!

You might be asking…Is preparing a natural organic dog food worth it? We  believe it is.

Although some folks might have come to accept commercial foods as being normal and natural ways to feed our pets and ourselves….In Fact…they are not. Commercially prepared food is just what we have gotten used to.

The good news is that this is changing rapidly in the pet industry and we are finding more people wanting recipes that they can prepare themselves.

What Goes Into Formulating A Tasty Doggy Meal

There are a few things you have to consider when formulating your own natural dog food recipes.

  • Use only organically raised and minimally processed foods
  • If you can’t find organic foods try to use the best whole, fresh foods that you can find. Commercial products can have cancerous meats, sugars, dyes and moldy grains.

  • Vary your ingredients
  • Use different meats and veggies every 4-5 days to insure a good balance of nutrients. You will find several that you and your dog likes and rely on these. Then make minor variations.

  • Include meats, bones, legumes, vegetables and herbs, fruits and flavorings
  • There are many choices of meats. It is recommended that you feed the meat raw so that your do can get all the nutrients available as cooking destroys vitamins and necessary enzymes.

    Finding a few meats that your dog loves is relatively easy as dogs are meat eaters by nature. Include some muscle or flesh meats like hamburger, chicken or fish. Also organ meats such as kidney, heart, brain and tripe are extremely important.

  • Bones such as large meaty bones are a great source of calcium.
  • Use them raw because cooked bones can splinter.

  • Dairy products…a controversy! Milk, milk products and eggs can be good additions to your healthy dog food recipes. Yet…you need to be careful as they can cause allergies. Wild canines such as wolves and coyotes eat eggs in the wild so eggs can be a great addition. Yogurt is better digested than milk but again watch for diarrhea as your dog can be sensitive.
  • Add some vegetables and herbs to your healthy dog food recipes
  • They are vitamin and mineral rich.

  • Many dogs like fruit
  • Adding fruit is a great snack but they also provide tons of vitamins, minerals and energy.

  • Flavorings to add interest
  • Ask your dog what their preferences are! You can experiment with nutritional yeast, tomato sauce, garlic, natural broths, etc.

    Don’t go overboard with flavorings…keep it simple

We love preparing food for our dogs and other pets. We feel it is the best way to feed our family members.

It really isn’t that difficult once you get your ingredients and your recipes.
