Beef and Chicken Brown Rice Canine Meals




About: I am a fun, loving father of 3 who like's to build and make.

This food is fit for human consumption. (t has to be better then Beneful dog food, look here Who knows in an emergency situation you may need it. I would suggest if you have to eat it, that you cook it thru so the liver gets cooked.I bought the reusable Betty Crocker tupperware bowls from the Dollar Tree. 3 for $1. All the bowls and lids are marked with permanent I stack them just like the picture in my freezer and I keep 6-8 in the fridge. When the fridge stock is at 2, I put 4-6 in and rotate.It doesn't smell to bad, a little fishy from the oil but the Roni dog sure does scarf it down.

32 oz Brown rice1 lbs beef liver (pureed in a food processor)
1.5 lbs chicken gizzard (chopped well in a food processor)
6 large eggs
6 large egg shells (dried in the microwave -3 min- and pulverized well in a food processor)
11 oz carrots (chopped well in a food processor)
6 oz baby spinach (chopped well in a food processor)
4 c quick oats
2 c beef broth
2 c chicken broth
10 c water
15 heaping tbls coconut oil
15 tsp bone meal
8 tsp salmon oil
6 tbls vegetable oil

Admittedly this food is a little pricey the first time you make it because you have to buy all of the oils and bone meal. (I went to the Vitamin Store) However the 2nd 3rd 4th times you make it you are spending $10 to $15 to feed your dog a food that you know what is in it. Not some mystery nibbles n bits of filler and gmo corn. The dog will love it and you will too in the long run when his hair is nicer, when he scratches less, when he has more energy to play, and when he want to lick your face you will know he loves you.

    I see you store in 8-ounce servings. Is this for one or two servings per day? Also, how large is your dog? The dogs I will be feeding this to are currently 30 and 35 pounds at 4 months. They will probably be around 90 to 100 pounds at maturity. Should there be any additional supplemental nutrition for puppies? It looks very tasty and nutritional.+

    We do a similar meal for our pups. we use chicken quarters (10lbs), 1 small bag of brown rice (makes about 6 cups), bag of broccoli an cauliflower (not large bags but average), 2-3 large sweet potato's, and we will rotate cottage cheese or plain yogurt (large containers). this will make about 40ish days (for two dogs at 2 ounces mixed in with morning kibble.)

    We used to buy our pups wet for their morning meals but due to the rising cost of everything (not just gas) we have resorted to making out own, not only is it cheaper but it is a whole lot healthier as well!

    May I ask why you are using carrots? Everything I have found out about carrots while in small quantities they are good but in large doses they can be detrimental to the health of the dogs.

    again great post

    Glad to see I am not the only one that cooks for their dogs. I, too, use rice. Too much protein is not good for a dog's liver and kidneys and mine won't eat all veggies. They do enjoy carrots and sweet potatoes, so those go in my recipe along with dry beans that have been cooked and the meat. I have been cooking for them over 5 years now and my vets tell me they are very healthy. Thanks for the recipe!

    I would suggest that if you cook your beans that you use the water you cooked them in, in the dog food, as you lose a lot of nutrients in the water.

    Oh, I absolutely do. I never dump cooking water. Unless it is starchy pasta water, I always use it in dishes or freeze it. Can't get better "broth" than the water food is cooked in.

    Why include rice? Dogs didn't hunt rice in the wild it's just a filler and not something that should typically be and part of everyday diet. Also not enough protein or variety

    Rice is far from "Just a filler", and I believe that dogs in the wild do probable eat things like rice. Everyone knows that they eat grassy for upset tummies so why wouldn't they? Just like people, dogs need starches and carbohydrates too. As rice is rich in carbohydrates, it acts as fuel for the body and aids in normal functioning of the brain. Eating rice is extremely beneficial for health, just for the fact that it does not contain harmful fats, cholesterol or sodium. It forms an integral part of balanced diet. Rice is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals like niacin, vitamin D, calcium, fiber, iron, thiamine and riboflavin. Rice abounds in resistant starch, which reaches the bowel in undigested form. It aids the growth of useful bacteria for normal bowel movements.

    We feed raw but supplement with kibble- our dog just does NOT like all the kibble we have tried - I am going to scale down the recipe and try this for sure. I will keep you posted on how this turns out!
