Dog Food, Chicken

Snickers has been eating home made dog food for about two months now. The vet was concerned that Snickers not become overweight and that the food be cooked completely. So far, so good. Snickers seems to be thriving. In the past, she would skip meals. I don't blame her. I wouldn't want to eat the same thing all the time, especially if it came from a bag.

Now Snickers gets fresh food mixed with kibble for crunch. She dances and begs for her meals, and licks her bowl clean. I have noticed that her fur is no longer course, but has become soft with a decrease in shedding. We give her a multivitamin once a day to replace the supplements contained in the dry dog food. This batch is a mix of chicken, sweet potatoes, and apples.

Just take a look at this happy dog!!

Hi Snickers!

Don't worry I just had a little lick of the beer- but I wanted more!

Could you send me the recipe of your dinner? I shed a WHOLE lot and my mom was thinking about homemade dog food. Have you found it to be less expensive than dry kibble?

Good for you! I cook for our girls (ground pork (boiled), steamed broccoli, apples and baked squash) and the girls love it!

If you are unsure about the meat getting cooked properly, you can buy a meat thermometer to measure the heat to make sure it's properly cooked.

Glad to hear Snickers loves her new food!

Hi, Snickers
Glad you like your homemade food! Since my vet insists on kibbles my mom is not so sure about cooking food for me! But for lunch I always have chicken soup with veggies.
Looking at your pictures I can see how much you like it!
Have a nice day
