The following homemade dog food recipe is from the Massachusetts’ MSCPA-Angell Animal Medical Center. They offer recipes for dogs weighing 15, 30 and 60 pounds. Dark chicken is the primary protein source. However turkey, lamb, pork, beef or eggs can be substituted in the same proportions. Pasta, white rice, brown rice, sweet potato’s, barley, peas, corn and oatmeal are all options for carbohydrates. Then for fiber you will find carrots, green beans, bell peppers, spinach, squash and broccoli among the ingredients. These should not make up more than 10% of a dogs diet though. Vegetables can be cooked or raw.

While we have linked (affiliate links – which means we get a small commission if you purchase anything which helps us keep the site and various social communities running) over to Amazon for the various ingredients which can be obtained through Whole Foods side of their network we do not recommend it long term. With the social distancing in place if you plan to do this having the product shipped is ideal currently. But once things get back to normal we recommend looking at bulk purchasing and checking with local butchers, etc for scraps, etc to save money if you plan to do this long term.
Always Get Your Vet’s Approval On Homemade Dog Food
You might need to adjust certain veterinary-endorsed diets based on your dogs needs. Ask your veterinarian about your dog’s specific needs. Whether your dog has medical problems or not, you need to always tell your veterinarian that your dog eats a homemade food. You should also add veterinarian-recommended supplements to the homemade diet’s basic components which is another reason to consult your veterinarian.
