The present crisis within our commercial dog food supply has a lot of us searching for homemade pet food recipes for the beloved pets. I’ve been cooking for the dog for several years and discover he likes mostly exactly the same foods that people do. Each animal has their own preferences, much like we all do. For example, our Oscar won’t eat tomato plants, but Bonnie loves them. Begin using these recipes like a beginning spot for homemade pet food recipes. Then, while you uncover your pets preferences you are able to personalize them more. One caution: you shouldn’t serve onion or chocolate to dogs because they contain substances that may be toxic to dogs.
Some veterinarians prefer raw meat for the pets. I favor to prepare the meat due to concerns over E Coli along with other microbial contamination. If you want to make use of raw meat, don’t use ground meat. The grinding process increases the potential of contamination by supplying more area for that bacteria to develop.
Canine Meat and Grain Menu
2 cups cooked brown grain
2/3 cup Lean beef
2 teaspoons lard — or veggie oil
1/2 cup vegetables — no onion*
Mix altogether. You are able to serve the meat raw if you are using chunks of beef. Don’t serve hamburger raw, the grinding process increases the likelihood of microbial contamination. Use any vegetables you want. You’ll find with time that the dog leaves any vegetables he doesn’t like. Mix the above mentioned. Serve slightly warm, although not hot.
Chow Chow Chicken
You have to take away the meat in the bones within this recipe. Chicken bones can certainly splinter and cause choking problems in dogs.
2 chicken thighs — or white-colored meat
1 stalk celery — sliced thick
3 carrot — peeled and halved
2 small taters — peeled and cubed
2 cups grain — uncooked
Place chicken pieces in large pot. Cover with cold water (5 -6 cups). Add carrots, celery, and taters to water. Add salt to taste if you would like. Cover and simmer on low heat a couple of hrs before the chicken becomes tender. Add some grain, cover and prepare over low heat for around half an hour before the grain is tender and the majority of the liquid is absorbed. Remove soup from heat. Pull the chicken meat from the bone ( it’ll practically disappear), discard bones. Return shredded pieces to pot. Stir well. Let awesome. Store within the refrigerator or freeze.
