I used to do it for my older dog towards the end. She got rice boiled with chicken and chopped veggies. My dog now loves raw veggies.

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: I feed mine veggies too, she loves them. Except iceberg lettuce apparently, which she just threw up lol.

Charlie loves broccoli, celery, and carrots. We could save a fortune on treats!

My mom makes this weird thing called “slurry.” It was suggested by the breeders because it’s supposed to be good for their coats. Basically, it’s ground lamb meat, carrots, and other random things (maybe rice and flaxseed?) blended together, cooked in a crock pot, and frozen in batches for their meals. I think she adds it to dry food as a supplement, along with a dollop of original Stoneyfield Farms yogurt.

Fancy, huh?

I just started doing this for my dog. She has terrible allergies and I had her on rx food for about a year, but she was still itchy. I’ve discovered she’s allergic to eggs and I suspect all poultry as well. 

For the moment I’ve been cooking ground beef and potatoes and combining it with rice and chopped carrots and spinach (done in food processor.) I’m not sure I can/should do this long term because I’m worried about giving her the right nutrition.

I feed my dog and cats raw (meat, not veggies)! It’s their ‘natural’ diet and soooo much better for them.  I was afraid about it being “unhealthy” with the bacteria and stuff, but their digestive system is built to handle that sort of stuff, and if you use meat from a good source there’s nothing to worry about. PM me if you want more info!

I’ve made treats for my dog before, but never made dog food. I’d totally try making food though.
