Home Made Dog Food Recipes

With all the recalls, awful food and chemicals being put into our dog food- mostly made in unregulated China-
  I have found that making my own organic dog food is cheaper and healthier for my dog.

Gracie loves this one and licks the bowl when she's done.

She also goes back and licks the bowl again randomly after eating, so I think she likes this recipe.

I do like Newman's Own canned dog food and other healthy organic brands, but it's  expensive to buy, so I just started to make my own.

Here's a basic dog food recipe I found that works for me. Please do research and talk to your Vet about what works best for your dog's health.

All dogs are different so please make sure you talk to your Vet to make sure this recipe. Ask them if they have any good ones and share with your friends! 

You can use organic products preferably, but if you can't afford it, use conventional.

It's still a lot better compared to what's in store bought dog food.

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary or chopped fresh rosemary from your garden.
  • 6 cups of water
  • 2 cups of brown rice.
  •  I used white already cooked jasmine rice from Trader Joe's- I added the cooked rice after.

  • So only add the uncooked rice at the beginning if you are using dry, uncooked rice.

  • I add about a cup of chopped up raw baby carrots to my frying pan mix-but some people about a 1/4 of a cup of canned green beans right before feeding.

  • Add already cooked green beans right before you feed your dog to add  bulk to the food-don't recook them, they'll be mush.

  • Other veggies  like broccoli may give your dog gas, so find veggies that works best for you and your doggie.

  • You can use frozen veggies too.

Place the ground turkey and rosemary and uncooked rice into the frying pan or dutch oven, stir until the ground turkey is broken up and evenly distributed throughout the mixture; bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.

Add the raw or frozen vegetables, and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Refrigerate until using.

Feeding after it's cold in the fridge

If you are using already cooked can green beans or cooked rice, just add to  the mixture as you feed.

I usually nuke the food for her when it's cold from the fridge for about 20 seconds-she likes warm food.

Dogs need a diet that consists of 40 percent meat, 30 percent vegetables and 30 percent starch.

This mix only lasts in the fridge for 3 days, so only make enough for three days worth. 


Rotate the foods you make for variety and a balanced diet.

 Cook meat before feeding it to your dog.

Its important to make sure your proportions are right to your dog.

75 protein 25 vegetable/starch is optimal for a healthy dog.

There are modifications for overweight or with health issues. A good dog vitamin is critical with calcium (unless you offer it in foods: tricky as they could be fattening)
