Recipe: Healthy Homemade Dog Food

– 3 pounds of lean ground chicken or turkey
– 3 cups of dog-friendly vegetables (carrots, peas, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, etc.)
– 2 cups of dog-friendly fruits (blueberries, apple, bananas etc., seeds and pits removed)
– 1.5 cups of cooked brown rice or quinoa
– 4 ounces of liver (chicken or beef)
– 4 cups of water (you may need more based on the consistency you want)
– 2 eggs, lightly beaten (optional)
– 2 tablespoons of fish oil (optional, a good source of EPA and DHA)

1. In a large pan, cook the ground chicken or turkey over medium heat until no pink is visible.
2. Add in the vegetables and cook until they soften, around 10 minutes.
3. Add in the fruits, brown rice or quinoa, and liver. Ensure the liver is cooked thoroughly.
4. Pour in the water, bring to a boil, then simmer for 15–20 minutes until all the ingredients are well combined. Add more water if needed.
5. Let it cool and then mix in the beaten eggs and fish oil. This is an optional step, but it adds a great source of protein and fatty acids to the meal.
6. Store the dog food in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It should keep for up to a week.

Please note: It’s important to consult with your vet before making homemade dog food to ensure it’s balanced for their specific nutritional needs. This is especially true for large breed dogs, who require the right balance of nutrients to maintain optimal joint health among other things.
