Cooking Tips on How to Make Homemade Food For Dogs
When cooking ground lamb for dogs, the skillet method is preferred. Using a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook meat, stirring and breaking it up with a spoon or spatula until it is cooked through (do not overcook). Let it cool until it is just warm to the touch.
To cook brown rice for dogs, cook according the package directions. Let cool to the touch.
The right vegetables and fruits for dogs are a very healthy addition to your dog diet, provided they are prepared, packaged and stored properly. They must be cooked so your dog can digest them properly. When preparing vegetables for dogs they should always be finely chopped and steamed. This allows vegetables to retain their nutrients while being suitable for dog digestion.
Fresh produce is always good for dogs. If possible, always use fresh when making homemade food for dogs but if one or two items are unavailable and you must use a frozen alternative, make sure there is no added salt or other seasoning or flavoring.
