Homemade dog food can be the most nutritious food you can feed your dog.
Thank you for stopping in and checking out my site. My goal is to help you feed your dog healthy, nutritious homemade dog food. The best dog food you make right in your kitchen. All the homemade dog food ingredients are readily available at your local grocery store. The homemade dog food recipes are easy to follow and simple to make. Most importantly your dog will thrive on these homemade dog food recipes and love the way they taste.
I believe dogs are designed to digest raw meat and bones the best. So I present raw homemade dog food recipes throughout this website as the best dog food for your dog. That said, I know many of you just can’t bring yourself to feed your dog a homemade dog food that contains raw meat. So I also present cooked homemade dog food recipes that are healthy and nutritious. I believe these homemade dog food recipes are still vastly superior to commercial kibble. Your dog will too!

FAQ About Homemade Dog Food
Question: Some of your homemade dog food recipes contain raw ground beef and chicken Is it safe to feed these items to my dog? What about the bacteria in the homemade dog food recipe?
Answer: Yes, it is safe to feed these ingredients to your dog. Dogs are carnivores and scavengers by nature. Dogs have a short digestive tract with strong stomach acids that protect them from getting sick from bacteria on food. This is how a dog can eat garbage and not become deathly ill.
Question: I’ve also heard they feed cattle antibiotics and other things aren’t these bad for my dog?
Answer: Maybe. I think of it this way. The food in your grocery store is considered fit for human consumption. The ingredients in dog food are considered NOT fit for human consumption! What ingredient do you think are better to include in a homemade dog food recipe?
Question: I notice you don’t use vegetables in your homemade dog food can I add them?
Answer: Like I said earlier, dogs are carnivores and have a short digestive tract. A dog’s short digestive tract is ill equipped to digest vegetables and receive their nutrients. So most just pass through as roughage. If you are determined to feed vegetables they need to be “predigested” so to speak. Cook and pulverize them to simulate them going through the digestive tract of a herbivore. Then add them to the homemade dog food.
Question: Why do you include white rice in your homemade dog food? Isn’t brown rice better?
Answer: Remember dogs have a short digestive tract. A dog’s short digestive tract does not effectively digest brown rice. The vast majority of any nutritional benefit to your dog just passes through undigested. White rice is better because it is easily digest by dogs. Brown rice is great for humans because we are omnivores with a long digestive tract. A human’s long digestive tract digests the brown rice and unlocks the nutritional benefits.
