PostSubject: Homemade food recipes   Mon Aug 11, 2014 12:45 pm

I have been thinking about making some homemade food for my dog. I am a little wary of raw food. I know a lot of people do it, but I am not sure I want to go that far yet...I also do not think I want to feed him homemade food exclusively. I am thinking more along the lines of, I want to make a good homemade food and mix it with his dry kibble. That being said, does anyone else mix homemade food with kibble? How does that work for you? I also need some recipes to try, if anyone has any suggestions Smile

Hi Taylh42, Miya is the most finicky husky ever when it comes to food in general, specifically kibble. She loves her meat and I do feed partial raw. I rotate burger, hamburger, turkey burger, venison burger. I cook up about 4-8 ounces, it all depends on her energy level and what else she will be eating during the day(if I'm going to feed raw, etc). So typically 4 ounces and a cup of TOTW. I have to buy 5 pound bags, she gets bored quick so I rotate flavors, and she hates the end of the bag(I seal it up after I get my cups worth, but I swear she thinks it's stale when we get almost done with the bag), also by giving her just a cup to a cup and a quarter, a 5 pound bag will last about 2 weeks. I also rotate, 3 tablespoons of pumpkin, 3 tablespoons greek yogurt, and an egg(hard boiled, scrambled, or you can do raw). I use a pinch of garlic powder every other day. This is the easiest for me, however if I make chicken she will get cut up pieces of the cooked, NO COOKED BONES, and I do include some fat, I feel fat is a good lubricant if you will and adds to healthy shiny fur. Raw is not really a big deal, I try and by bone in steaks and give her the bone part and leave some meat on it, for the days I don't feed her RMBS(raw meaty bones). I have also cooked up some beef liver, which she adores like nothing else.
Hope this helps,
Renee
