Homemade Dog Food | Our Dogs Aren’t Fat, They’re Big Boned
Last month, I had to admit that our dogs are huge and some of that girth is chubbiness thanks to a steady diet of dog treats and the canned dog food that I mix into their hard food. It’s all me. At first, I was cooking for them, but I got lazy and started buying this great canned food that looks like real food.
They loved it, hence the expanding waistlines.
canned food is great, but it was costing us a fortune. We split one can between the dogs twice daily, mixed with their hard food, Blue Buffalo Wilderness
We decided to keep the Wilderness, because we’ve had great success with it and I’ve returned to cooking their food. Someone suggested an easy recipe for me…2-3 pounds lean ground beef (sometimes I use ground turkey or chicken), 2 bags of frozen veggies (broccoli, peas, green beans, and/or carrots), 1 bag of frozen brown rice, and 3 raw eggs. I cook the rice in the microwave first, then I mix everything in our crock pot Friday evening, it’s ready Saturday morning, and it lasts all week. The dogs love it.
The canned food costs us about $32-$35 a week. This recipe costs less than $10 a week and the bonus, we’ve seen an improvement in poop consistency and volume (Rodrigo has a sensitive tummy) and a decline in eye boogers. Very technical terms, hope I didn’t loose you there.
