Thinking About Making Your Own Dog Food, Here Is  A Great Homemade Dog Food Recipes

Before I share the actual recipes for you, I wanted to go over some basic concepts for homemade dog food recipes:

An appropriately balanced dog food diet contains roughly 40% meat, 30% starch, and 30% vegetables. An individual recipe doesn’t have to contain those ratios absolutely as long as your dog’s overall diet is in that ratio.

Meat: Any general type will do. Make sure that you cook the meat. While so will argue that dogs used to eat raw meat before they were domesticated and therefore okay to serve raw, they are forgetting one thing. Meat from today’s manufacturers is more likely to contain bacteria because of the mass production versus a wild animal. So, to be on the safe side, cook the meat. Also, by the way, remove the bones, either before or after cooking so as to remove any choking hazard.

Starch: Almost any starch will do here; rice, potatoes, and pasta.

Vegetables: Vegetables should be cooked so as to reduce being a choking hazard.

Foods to Avoid:

➜ Alcoholic beverages
➜ Coffee or Tea or other caffeine products. These can cause problems with the heart and nervous system
➜ Citrus oil extracts; can cause vomiting
➜ Grapes and raisins can cause damage to the kidneys
➜ Too much liver can cause vitamin A toxicity
➜ Macadamia nuts contain a toxin that affects the digestive and nervous system

Ok, now on to the homemade dog food recipes:

Here’s a Chicken Stew Dog Food Recipe that I think your dog will enjoy.

Ingredients:
Whole chicken, 2 ½ pounds
Whole barley, 8 ounces
Rolled Oats, 6 ounces
Green peas, 1 cup
Carrots, 1 cup coarsely chopped
Sweet potato, ½ cup coarsely chopped
Zucchini, ½ cup coarsely chopped
Yellow squash, ½ cup coarsely chopped
Green beans, ½ cup coarsely chopped
Celery, ½ cup coarsely chopped
Kelp powder, 1 tablespoon
Dried Rosemary, 1 tablespoon
Water, 16 cups (or enough to cover the ingredients)

Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in a 10-quart stainless-steel stockpot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat as low as possible and simmer for two hours – the carrots should be quite soft at the end of the cooking time. Remove from the heat, let cool, and debone the chicken.

With an electric hand mixer, or using a food processor and working in batches, blend all the ingredients into a puree. Using seal-a-meal, zip lock bags or plastic yogurt containers, make up meal-sized portions (see below). Refrigerate what you’ll need for three days and freeze the rest.

Serving size:

Amounts will vary depending on age, activity level, health, weight and season, but here are some guidelines: The amount shown below should be split into at least 2 meals daily.

Dog’s Weight/Daily Portion

* Up to 10 pounds – 1 to 1½ cups
* 11 to 20 pounds – 2 to 3 cups
* 21 to 40 pounds – 4 cups

For each additional 20 pounds, add two cups.
