We get a lot of questions about pet recipes. People want to know what homemade dog food is good for a certain problem or they just want a good basic dog food recipe. To be honest, over the years I've seen health problems in some dogs that are fed a homemade dog food. It can be difficult to properly balance a dog's nutritional needs in a homemade food, and a poor diet can cause problems. Generally, we recommend that dogs be fed a good quality premium dog food that is properly balanced to meet all nutritional requirements.

But some owners still insist on making their own food.  So in my opinion, if you are going to do it, you should do it right. Also, if your dog is sick and you are trying to get him to eat, a homemade food recipe might come in handy.

If you decide to feed any of these recipes to your dog, print the recipe and take it to your vet to discuss it based on your particular dog's needs.

Here are our most sought after dog recipes:

Homemade Dog Food Recipe for Healthy Adult Dogs

Homemade Dog Food Recipe for Overweight Dogs

Homemade Dog Food Recipe for Dogs with Intestinal Disease

Homemade Dog Food Recipe for Dogs with Kidney Disease

Super Easy Dog Treat Recipes

You may even want to print one or two of these recipes and keep them around in case you run out of food or if your dog will not eat and you are trying to entice him to eat with something new.

Until next time,
