dog food recipies Answered

Does anyone have a good, homemade dog food recipe? my dog has food allergies. She does a lot better when she doesn't have any sugars or grains. I still haven't figured out what she is allergic to, for sure. I am willing to try anything!

My dog has become health and his coat has become more Shiny from the day I started giving him raw I only feed him Raw 3 days a week so I think giving raw is good idea.

Raw bones and meat are absolutely excellent for dogs! My guy gets a lamb shank, beef bone, or chicken back nightly!

As for your comment about allergies,  I'd simply avoid grains. They tend to be one of the biggest causes of problems. If you're not sure you want to feed a homemade diet, you can look into companies that sell frozen, pre-made diets.

You could also try her on a grain free kibble, there are tons on the market.

check out www.dogfoodanalysis.com, they have an awesome list.

I do this, ONLY do this if your dogs gets lots of excercise, very high in carbs and energy. One cup of rice One small package raw ground beef, with fat One carrot, chopped Half a cup of peas Sprig of parsley, chopped Place 2 c water in med saucepan over high heat. Add all ingredients. Bring to boil for 1 minute. Turn down to simmer, till water has evaporated. Cool. Feed to hungry dog. Reply if you have questions.

. Why cook anything but the rice*? I'm certainly not a dog expert, but most of what I've read says dogs do better on raw food. See BARF diet.
. Either way, it sounds like something my dogs would love. :)

*Even that may not be necessary. Raw rice is probably no harder than bones.

. Exactly. Dogs teeth and digestive systems are designed for raw bones and meat (plus some vegetable matter), but cooked bones can splinter and cause all sorts of problems.
