When our dog Honey begin to have difficulties getting off the floor and walking, I felt compelled to find a homemade, nutritional alternative to mass-processed commercially bagged and canned dog food.
After only two to three weeks, the results were evident. After a couple months, her debilitating symptoms are gone! This recipe has truly been a life-saver and I cannot recommend it enough to maintain/improve the health of your ‘best friend(s)’.
Keep in mind, it’s important to note that dogs have different nutrient requirements than humans for their proportional body size, such as:
- High-quality protein (meat, seafood, dairy or eggs)
- Fat (meat or oil)
- Carbohydrates (grains or vegetables)
- Calcium (dairy)
- Essential fatty acids (egg yolks or oatmeal)
This recipe has a balance of 50% protein, 25% veggies and 25% grains, but the ratios can easily be adjusted to suit your pup’s breed and/or needs.
Once you’ve made your batch, you can divide them up into single servings, note the date (if desired), and freeze it. When ready to serve, you can defrost it in the fridge overnight and nuke it for 15-30 seconds. That’s it! Now who knew that making dog food would be this easy? source
Keep your dog healthy and fit with this easy homemade recipe – it’s cheaper than store-bought and free of all the bad ingredients!!
