When it comes to maintaining your dog?s health, homemade dog food is the way to go. All of the ingredients in homemade dog food recipes are fresh and you will find that you can ultimately save money as well. Although it can be time consuming to make homemade dog food, it is worth the trouble.

As you begin searching for dog food recipes, remember that a dog is healthier eating like humans. There diet should be primarily meat-based, but you can throw in some other food groups from time to time as well. One good thing about making homemade dog food is that the meal is much more flavorful compared to dog food. Because of this, you can often break your dog?s vitamins into pieces and put them in the dish; your dog will never notice the difference.

There are certain food items that are beneficial to add to the meal if your dog is suffering from anything. For instance, if your dog is suffering from diarrhea, adding white or brown rice to whatever meal you cook them will be good for their stomach. Adding a little bit of garlic powder to the food is good if your dog has fleas.

As you begin searching for healthy dog food recipes, try to accommodate their needs with what is healthy. Making recipes with lots of meat, rice and vegetables is always healthy. For instance, putting together a dish with brown rice, pork and vegetables is perfect for your dog. You?ll want to cook the pork and vegetables on the oven in a pan together, while steaming the rice.

You can replace the pork with any other kind of meat such as beef, chicken, ham or lamb. You?ll find that your dog prefers certain meat over other kinds, but anything will be better than store bought dog food. The size of dish that you give your dog will depend on the size of your dog and whether you want them to lose weight or gain weight.

Another healthy dog food recipe that your dog is sure to enjoy is a dog casserole. You?ll start by boiling 1 cup of chopped poultry. While the poultry is cooking, you will boil a ? cup of mixed vegetables and a ? cup of brown or white rice. After all is cooked, you will add in 3 to 4 Tbsp of unsalted chicken broth and you are set. The amount of poultry, veggies and rice can vary depending on the size of your dog.

Homemade dog food recipes are best for your dog because of the healthy ingredients and nutrients it supplies them with. If your dog isn?t jumping for the bowl immediately, you can transition them into the homemade food by placing a small amount with their normal food. After a little time, you dog will be salivating over the healthy dog food recipes you have put together.
