Homemade Dog Food --Make Your Dogs a Chicken Dinner for Their Health

Reader D. Tafrow shares this recipe for homemade dog food. Thanks!

Jen, I wanted to share an easy recipe I have been using as a supplement to kibble for years now.

My Mastiff is going to be 10 soon and still acts like a very healthy energetic pup, as well as my Great Dane.

Easy Homemade Dog Food Recipe

homemade dog food

1. I buy the large pack of chicken thighs when on sale

2. Skin them and add the entire pack to a large pan with raw carrots and fresh parsely.

3. I slow cook everything on the stove for about an hour. While that's cooking I microwave a large sweet potato.

4. After everything cools, I bone the chicken and process in a food processor with the carrots and all the juices. To this I add a handful of walnuts, a couple tablespoons of wheat germ, a few tablespoons of olive oil and the cooked sweet potato. I process for a minute in the food processor until smooth.

One batch lasts about 8 or 9 days and I'm giving some to all 3 of my dogs. They love it!! Also, we all share an apple after each dinner.
