DIY Dog Food Recipes

In February 2007, about 5,300 pet food products were taken off the shelves. These products had been laced with melamine and a lot of pets died from consuming these products. You should know that there are other ingredients in dog food that are not nutritious for your pet. They might satisfy your dog’s basic need, but they do not provide a healthy nutritious diet. To get a complete list, visit the Dog Food for Life website.

The best way to ensure that your dog gets a healthy food is by preparing it yourself. Below are some easy DIY dog food recipes.

Meat and Potato Meal
12 1/2 cups of potatoes, chunked
3 pounds beef heart cut into chunks
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
1 cup zucchini, squash, peas or carrots
6 tablespoons dog powder
6 tablespoons bone meal

Servings: Toy dogs: 1-2cups, Small dogs: 3-4 cups, Large dogs: 8-9 cups, Giant dogs: 9 cups per day.

Boil the potatoes, in a large pot, until they are soft. To cook the meat, pour out half of the water and add the beef heart chunks. Simmer until they are no longer pink. Add the remaining ingredients and stir.
If you prefer raw, pour out all the water when you cook the potatoes, and add the beef heart with the other ingredients.
