home made dog food

Well it's been a few weeks since the dog food recall, that started me on my quest to make their food. It was so hard to see my helpless little dog sick from her dog food!!!

Does it take longer to make food versus just pouring it from a bag? Oh yes, it does. Is it worth it? I believe it is. It would take a few seconds to pour their kibble, but it takes a few minutes to measure out homemade food and add their vitamins and cottage cheese to it.

Why am I adding to my already overcrowded day? I'm hoping that we will have less vet visits, and healthier dogs. My dogs have lost the weight that they needed to lose, on homemade food. Ironically, the food that made them sick was vet prescribed to help them lose weight! After a recent check up, our vet gave both dogs a clean bill of health. He says keep up what we are doing! {even though he loses the income from us not buying the kibble!}

It takes about 30 minutes every few days to make up a batch. Compare that to going to the vet hospital in the middle of the night. I'd rather make their food, thank you!


  1. I also made my dog it's own food. We used raw hamburger as a base. She loved it! She had allergies which made her fur fall out in patches & it cured it.
    Love you blog :-)

  2. It is so worth it! My little dog has had so many health issues since birth. We are a few months into homemade and she is doing so well! Knock on wood, we hope not to see the vet for a VERY long time!
    Thanks for visiting here! Love your blog as well!
