Homemade Dog Food Recipeby Carolyn Barton
Feeding your dog homemade food ensures he is always eating something safe. With so many commercial foods being recalled and making dogs sick, homemade is best. Dogs need meat in their diets, along with vegetables and grains to maintain good health and get the necessary nutrients.
Basic Dog Food
Pour one pound of raw ground hamburger into a large bowl. Add two cups of finely diced vegetables. Any vegetables will do, and more than one vegetable should be used. If your dog is prone to gas, avoid vegetables such as broccoli that may cause flatulence.
Add in a half-cup of organ meat, such as chicken or beef liver, and a half-cup of plain yogurt.
Crack three eggs into a separate bowl, and crumble the shells in the bowl as well. Beat the eggs and shells thoroughly, then pour into the hamburger mixture.
Mix all ingredients together thoroughly. Feed two to three cups at each feeding, depending on the size of your dogs. The remainder can be stored in the refrigerator for several days.
Steam two cups of brown rice until thoroughly cooked. Steam one cup of vegetables as well, using several different kinds.
Brown a pound of ground beef in a pan. Add the rice and vegetables to the beef after it is cooked and remove from heat.
Pour in one cup of grated carrots and one tablespoon of vegetable oil. Stir to mix all ingredients thoroughly. Allow to cool completely before feeding. Feed two to three cups per feeding. Refrigerate the remainder.
