We have all heard or seen the horror stories of what is actually in the pet foods sold in the stores. If you want to be sure of what goes in your dog’s food, the best thing to do is make it yourself. Although many experts would say that homemade diets are the best food option for your dog, it’s still best if you get your veterinarian’s advice first. Changes in your dog’s diet must be done slowly to avoid upsetting their stomach. Ingredients or recipes must be rotated to guarantee nutritional variety.
Never give bones to your dogs, especially the cooked ones. Fragments have a tendency to get lodged in your pet’s digestive tract. Other dangerous foods for dogs are large amounts of garlic, onions, raisins, grapes, macadamia nuts, mushrooms, avocados and chocolates.
Here are a few recipes which are guaranteed to make your dog happy.
Doggy Hamburger Helper
o Cottage cheese – 2 tbsp
o Carrots (baby food) – 1 jar
o Green beans (baby food) – 1 jar
o Oatmeal – 1/2 cup, plain, cooked
o 2 Eggs – boiled, chopped
o Hamburger meat – 1 cup, browned
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and serve in a room temperature. A dog mineral/multivitamin supplement can be added for a extra measure. Unused portions must be stored in a sealed container and refrigerated. Throw away any leftovers after 3 days.
Doggy Fish Meal
o Peanut butter – 1 tbsp
o Celery – 1 stick
o Carrot – 1 small
o Potato – 1 small
o Cornmeal – 3 tbsp
o 1 Egg -, beaten
o Salmon – 1 can, bones removed
Combine cornmeal, egg and salmon. Mix well. Form into medium-sized patties. Coat them using a bit more cornmeal. Fry both sides using a small amount of canola until brown. Chop the patties into small bite-sizes. Mix with boiled and chopped vegetables. For moisture, you can add one spoonful of cottage cheese, if desired. To finish off your dog’s dinner, you can give peanut butter to serve as dessert.
