Home-made dog food – Cooking for the dog

Feeding a dog is much easier than some owners believe.
Some dog owners would like to prepare fresh food for their pup, but can not make friends with the idea of ​​feeding raw meat, such as with Biologically Appropriate Raw Feeding

When the meat is boiled, germs such as e.g. Salmonella die off. Although they are in usual amounts safe for the dog, but should be better avoided by humans, therefore, you should work particularly hygienic when dealing with raw meat.

If you do not feel good about raw feeding, you can also serve the meat for the dog food steamed or cooked.
When cooking, however, some nutrients and vitamins are lost and the protein structures in the meat change.
Therefore, the meat for the dog, if he gets homemade food, should be steamed only slightly if possible, in order to protect the nutrients.
It is also good to supplement the cooked meat with fresh, raw vegetables.

Homemade dog food – ingredients

The homemade dog food should consist of about the following parts:

  • 2 parts meat
  • 1 part of carbohydrates, e.g. Potatoes or millet
  • 1 part vegetables and fruits
  • oil
  • herbs

If you want to feed your dog with less carbohydrates, you can replace them with more vegetables or meat. Dogs can use carbohydrates very well, but they are not particularly “near-natural” food for dogs.
Dogs are originally called carnivores and have also the corresponding teeth with strong fangs.
It is also important that their food contains a lot of fat.
Nevertheless, Vegan Dog Food is especially popular because of its anti-inflammatory potential and for animal-friendly reasons.
