Cooking Tips on How to Make Homemade Food For Dogs

When cooking ground turkey 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 whole wheat macaroni in your fresh dog food (use only whole wheat), bring water to a rapid boil in a saucepan. Add the macaroni and cook for 7-10 min or until soft, stirring occasionally. Drain, rinse under cool water and let cool to the touch.

The right vegetables and fruit 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 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.

  1. We are experimenting with slow cooking now. Otherwise I steam all the veggies and I actually prefer to use stainless steel pan for Jasmine’s organ meats (just cook it quickly with a bit of water, doesn’t actually stick at all). I a paranoid about non-stick materials too.

    • So, Jana, do you not cook the organ meats all the way and which organ meat to you serve to Jasmine? I think I’ll try it too. If you’re ever interested in sharing a recipe, I’d be happy to promote it on my Friday.


  2. I really enjoyed this post. Your cooking tips were very enlightening. I’ve just started cooking homemade meals for my dog so I’m starting a recipe book to keep things interesting (for both Jake and me). It’s amazing how much healthier this is for dogs when compared to typical commercial dog food. My last dog died due to cancer caused by food additives so it was time to switch over. Thanks for the great recipe. The ingredients are on my grocery list.

  3. I can see a good recipe here and also good instructions for cooking home made dog food. I am also passionate about making your own dog food for your dogs because of my previous experience. I own two french bulldogs, Douglas and Dennis, and both of them were victims of commercialized dog food. They stopped eating and became very ill. They even lost weight. Then a good friend advised me to cook food for them. So I prepared some meat and a few fresh vegetables and cooked them. I gave it to them and I was surprised on how they cleaned their bowl and were asking for more. Since then I learned the horrors behind dog foods in the market and the dog food recalls. I will not allow anything bad thing to happen to my dogs as I love them because they are part of the family. I will never feed them commercialized dog food.
