Homemade dog food

Commercially produced dog foods, especially those that have been certified by national veterinary societies, provide a good, safe and convenient way of feeding your dogs. However, some people find that their dogs are sensitive to some of the preservatives in these foods, worry about the monotony of the same diet or don’t have access to a commercial food.  Here is an easy and inexpensive alternative.

A 12 oz portion - suitable for one day’s ration for a 20 lb dog.  Adjust for the weight of your dog.

4 oz (1/2 cup) protein – any meat, chicken, fish or eggs (all cooked).
4 oz carbohydrate – cooked rice, grains, pasta, cooked cereals such as oatmeal, potatoes or  (packed tight when measuring).
4 oz vegetables – any cooked vegetables (obviously not potatoes or other high carbohydrates). Carrots, broccoli, turnips, green peppers, green beans, etc  NO ONION as it can be poisonous.
Simply mix the contents together
While this basic diet is balanced it can be improved by adding the basic supplement mix.

Basic Supplement:
1 cup debittered brewers yeast
1 cup wheat germ
2 cups powdered milk
¼ cup powdered kelp
Mix together and store in a cool dry place.
To improve the diet quality add 1 tsp of the basic supplement for each 12 oz portion of the food mixture and 1 tsp vegetable oil (preferably corn oil or flax oil which is good for the dog’s skin).
