Dog Food Recipes




Here are some recipes we have liked the look of or made ourselves and links to some recipe sites.

Everyday foods and the BARF diet - a very god page on dog diet with many recipes



In general, dog food should be made up of roughly 1/3 protein (from meat, eggs or dairy products) and 2/3 grains and vegetables.

We cook most of our dog's food but apart from rice the ingredients vary depending on what is in season and cheap, or on special. We often use cheap tinned fish (Mackeral, an oily fish good for the heart and skin etc) in our food. They also get raw bones once or twice a week, again depending on what is on special or looks good. We try not to feed chicken more than once a week. Our breed, which spend their day as housedogs at our place, seems to do better on a lower protein diet. 

Treats - Special Occassions

This recipe from my friend Louise requires a unique Australian product, Vegemite, no idea if Marmite will work as well or if there is a US substitute.

The recipe for the bickies for which Harry would sell his soul as follows: They are not a liver treat and the oat content means they are not gluten-free.

 Louise's Wheat-free biscuits
 500g Buckwheat flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 egg
1tsp yeast extract(Vegemite) dissolved in 1/4cup hot water
 Mix all ingredients swth sufficient water -approx 2 cups- to make a firm but slightly sticky dough
 Spread dough in thin layer on cookie sheets or spread in spoonfuls on cookie sheets.
 Bake at 150c till firm and dry on top surface. Turn cookies and continue to dry in a slow oven until crisp through.  Probably best stored refrigerated.
Cheers, Louise
