Homemade Dog Food?
My husband and i are bringing home a 6-week old Doberman Puppy and i was interested in feeding him homemade dog food. I feel like a lot of the Dog food out there is ok..but i would prefer to feed my new family member something i would personally eat. Any recipes or suggestions you might have would be wonderful!.. SERIOUS ANSWERS ONLY!
Congrats on your new puppy.
If you want to feed a homecooked or a raw diet, then you MUST become educated on how to make it balanced.
If you cannot follow a tested *balanced* recipe, it would be better to use a commercial diet. Don’t make your dog the victim of what you do not know about. It’s one thing to make that mistake on yourself; you can have a craving and run to the grocery store and get it. Your dog can’t do that.
NOTE: food can be balanced over a weeks time, not necessarily each at each feeding.
Puppies have very different nutritional requirements to adult dogs, and you only get one chance to rear them properly. Deficiencies or excesses as a pup can cause problems.
Minerals often need to be balanced with each other in the homecooked diet to work well. Giving too much of one mineral and not enough of another can affect growth and cause other problems in the body. Balancing takes some study to do it right. Http://b-naturals.com/Feb2006.php
Just one example of an imbalance: too much phosphorus (from meat) and not enough calcium (from bones, yogurt, egg shells).
If calcium is deficient in the blood, the body will withdraw some from the bones to insure enough calcium is in the blood stream for regulation of the heart muscle. Bone can lose up to 30% to 40% of its calcium before a deficiency becomes apparent.

Homemade dog food without meat?
Ok i am out of meat so what r some homemade dog foods that i can make. All i have is roast beef and lunch meat.
I have meat! Roast beef!
I have roast beef, eggs, rice, oats so give me a recipe
Well, you can certainly put the roast beef into the dog food. Don’t put the lunch meat, it’s full of nitrites and sodium. Cook up a batch of rice, add equal amounts of veggies, and equal amounts of protein. Put in that roast beef. Other proteins, you can use eggs, cottage cheese, yogurt, my dogs like nuts, you could add some peanut butter to the mix but not too much as it’s fatty.
Edited to add: Here’s the recipe we do for our dogs.’
Boil, broil, or bake chicken, turkey or beef , liver, and other organ meat if good too(but you already have the beef)
Steam a pot of rice ( you can mix the rice with oatmeal, we do)
Or else put all of this into a pot together with enough water to make a thick stew.
Add a couple of eggs at the end of the cooking. Do not add salt, seasonings, onion or garlic and go easy on the gassy (cabbage family) veggies. The mix should be 1/3 protein, 1/3 grain, 1/3 veggie. Our dogs love this and so will yours.
