- The nicest aspect of creating homemade dog food – like with producing anything at home – is that you know precisely what is going into the dog’s dish, and none of that iffy gelatinous sludge from canned food.
However, it is crucial to remember that dogs’ nutritional needs vary from those of people due to their relative body size, such as:
- 1. A high-quality protein (meat, seafood, dairy or eggs)
- 2. fatty (meat or oil).
- 3.Calcium (dairy).
- 4.Calcium (dairy).
- Essential fatty acids (egg yolks or oatmeal).
Now, this meal includes a 50/25/25 mix of protein, vegetables, and grains, but the ratios may easily be altered to fit your pup’s breed and/or requirements.
As soon as you’ve made your batch, you can divide it into single servings, write the date on it, and freeze it. When it’s time to eat, you can defrost it in the fridge overnight and microwave it for 15-30 seconds to get it ready. There you go! I didn’t know that making dog food would be so simple.
