I regularly cook food for my beloved Millie (she passed away recently). I always make sure than she ate clean, home-cooked dog food. Sometimes, I buy her food from the pet shop or the vet’s or some kibbles to give her balance diet and texture.
If you have dogs and want to make sure they get the cleanest and right nutrition that they need, find time to cook them meals which you can pack and freeze to be consumed later. You can also try TruDog’s Pet food for taste and nutrition.

Is your dog a finicky eater? Are you trying to wean your dog from eating processed dog foods most of the time? Does your dog need to keep a healthy weight? If so, then preparing homemade dog food for your precious furry baby is the best thing to do to ensure that your dog has clean food that is usually free from too many processed stuff and unnecessary salt and sugar in its diet.
This homemade dog food is easy to make. You can keep them in packs for few days and freeze them to keep them fresh. You can play around with other meat ingredients to add but the main deal is a healthy homemade dog food.
2 tbsp cooked rice, pasta or wholemeal bread (some dogs may have an allergy on wheat products)
Approximately half-your-fist-sized meat: lean beef, chicken or fish
Fibre in the form of carrots, grated
1-2 tsp olive oil
5 tbsp broth (preferably the one used for boiling the meat). Do not use processed broth cubes for this. Our goal is to make fresh, homemade dog meals.
Grate carrots and set aside
Scoop cooked rice and put in a blender, add boiled choice of meat (either diced or pulled)
Add olive oil and broth
Mix all in a blender and blend until meat and rice/bread or pasta are grounded
Now you can serve this to your pooch or save until later. Put in a ziplock bag and freeze for next batch. You can increase the ratio of the ingredients depending on your dog size. This is good for a small to medium sized dog.
Your dog is likely a member of the family. You want to feed your dog an all natural dog food so that it gets all of the nutrients it needs to live a healthy life. There are brands that are made with vegetables and beef or chicken. These have the same vitamins and minerals that you might find in a meal that you would prepare. The exact ingredients aren’t the same, but the concept is the same in that the dog’s food shouldn’t consist of added ingredients that don’t have a benefit for the health of your pet.
A benefit of natural food is that there aren’t any animal by-products. If something doesn’t sound appealing to you, then it’s not something that you want to give to your dog. Do a little research when it comes to the ingredients. Avoid foods with a lot of corn meal and starches as they can add more weight on the dog than is needed. Look for foods that have more protein. Chicken, fish and eggs are ideal ingredients for dogs to enjoy.
When you give your dog a natural food, it can improve the health of the skin and coat. It can improve the muscles and joints. The energy level of the dog will be maintained as the dog will be getting the proper nutrients instead of foods that can make the dog inactive. A healthy food can help decrease the risk of allergies, especially if the dog is kept inside. If you have noticed your dog sneezing or coughing, then you might want to try a natural food to see if it helps. Since there is a higher amount of protein in a natural food, you will probably find that you are feeding your dog less. It won’t take as much to fill the dog as it won’t be eating the junk that is found in brands that aren’t organic or natural. Natural foods often give your dog a longer life span. When they aren’t getting the by-products and unhealthy ingredients that can damage the arteries and the heart, then they will be able to live a longer and fuller life.
