Homemade Dog Food

Homemade dog food is an excellent way to make sure your dogs are getting the nutrients they need.

| May 2009

My two Vizsla hunting dogs get homemade dog food twice each day. I mix an adjusted amount with good quality dry kibble.

Homemade dog food can be better than some commercial products. We don’t realize what’s in the food we give our pets. Always inspect the ingredients.

Commercial dog foods can contain preservatives, and are altered by chemical processes that can be unhealthy for dogs. They can also contain processed unknown animal products and fillers that do nothing to contribute to your pet’s health.

To avoid your dogs ingesting unknown dog food ingredients, make your own. Control not only the content, but the quality as well.

I'm sure this recipe is a good one, but I do not have time to be making food for my dog every day or every other day.

Cin,as a Holistic nut, you are 100% RIGHT! Corn oil is GMO, and yes, starch, tums & vitamins are pointless!!! Fed RIGHT, humans & animals get all their nutrients & vitamins from their food! Vitamins are smoke & mirrors..if you want to add supplements, may I suggest Springtime Supplements? Non GMO, HUMAN Grade, pure, etc. I use it for my dog's seperation anxiety
