Homemade Dog Food…?
Hello. I make my own dog food, and thought I would run it by some hopefully experienced/knowledgeable people who do likewise.
I woud very much appreciate your honest input…
Please inform me if there are ingredients I should add/or remove from
my recipe. Thank you very much. (recipe is for 2 Chihuahua’s. 4 lbs. and 6 lbs.) I have been feeding this along with Innova puppy for Month’s now, and seems to do my dogs well/they lavish it.
Ground Chicken, Turkey -boiled.
Chicken Hearts, Chicken Liver -Steamed. (not alot of chcken livers).
Sweet Potatoes -steamed
Brown Rice- boiled (not alot of)
(someitmes I will put in couple jars of veggie, fruit babyfood)
*Plain Yogurt 2x week
*vitas 2x week.
salmon oil, once in a while.
Looks good! Way more nutritious them most commercial foods!
Dogs need certain vitamins, I think Missing Link vits would be prefect to add into their daily meals.

Making my own dog food for papillon?
After lots of research and thought, I have decided to make my own dog food for my new papillon puppy. We will get her in 3 1/2 weeks. I have spoken with a few vets, and I am having a hard time finding one who seems confident about giving advice on homemade dog food. I have found lots of recipes on the Internet, but I am wary of forums where anyone can post. So, I am looking for reputable websites where I can find recipes for my papillon puppy. Also, I would like to hear any stories or advice you may have. I have saved a lot of money up for my new baby, so cost isn’t really an issue. I just want to be able to feed a good, safe food that I have control over. Thanks in advance!
I feed my own Papillons (from rescues to champions) Innova and they have done very well on it. I recently lost my first Papillon, he was almost 18. With high quality canned or dry, you do not have to guess if you are doing it right or wonder how fresh the meat you are buying is. You can certainly do homemade, but a commercial food is easier for sure and you know it is 100% nutritionally complete.
My older dogs diet, and other need to knows?
I adopted a 9 year old min pin yesterday, she seems very active, and we have a vet appointment for Monday to check her health. I wanted to know what are somethings I should probably always have around for her? She is over weight (almost twice what she should be) would home cooked food help her loose weight along with her daily walks and dog park days or is there something else I should do. I already cook my puppy homemade dog food because she is allergic to grain,and the older dog is allergic to wheat. I use lean beef, ground turkey, boiled eggs, carrots, celery and one other in season veggie that is good for dogs a tablespoon of cottage cheese, flax seed oil and omega 3 liquid vitamin. Would that recipe be ok for my older dog? I have some of her food to mix with it for switching her. And how much should I feed her a day in cups? I feed my beagle 2-3 cups, about 1 1/2 cups twice a day morning and night. But I do not know the amount for a min pin. And is there anything else I should know. And what are some grain free (brands or easy homemade recipes both would be nice) treats I can get that are good for puppy’s and dogs?
I would feed the minpin the homemade diet you are feeding your beagle, but cut the amount in half maybe even more since the she needs to lose so much weight.
As for treats you can look up some easy homemade treats and substitute the regular flour for potato flour. Potato flour is allergen free for most all dogs. They sell it at health food stores.
