The Test Kitchen is Open
According to the popular website All Recipes http://allrecipes.com/, a homemade recipe for dogs should contain at least 1/3 protein and 2/3 grains and vegetables. Sources of protein may include meat, eggs, or dairy products. Also, according to top breeders the veggies should be ground in order to assure that all nutrients and vitamins go directly into the dog's system, because a dog will usually gulp his food and not thoroughly chew his food as we humans are taught to do. A few more must do's for the homemade doggie chef is to add a ground/powdered egg shell product for calcium as well as omega fatty acids for a quality fat source. Lastly, you must make sure your pet gets a raw, meaty (not splintery)bone to ensure healthy gums and teeth. Wild dogs and wolves have been doing this for centuries!
