    Homemade Dog Food



    By request, here's my method of making home made doggie food.

    Ingredients
    1 kg. chicken (beef, pork, whatever is on sale)
    1 cup rice
    3 cups water
    Vegetables and fruit
    Left overs

    I'm putting in an over ripe mango, nearly expired zucchini and potato, and some dried up carrot sticks found in the back of the fridge.



    Any vegetable will do except onions, garlic, or shallots. Also no grapes. These are toxic to dogs.


    Put your chicken and three cups of water and chicken into a big heavy pot. Cover. Cook on high heat for 10 minutes.


    After starting the chicken, chop fruit and veggies up fine. If you leave big chunks, the dogs will pick out what they don't like.


    Notice I found a couple of bread heels and will throw them in.


    Your ten minutes are up by now and chicken cooked to look like this.



    Drop in the fruit, vegies, and rice. Don't turn down or turn off the flame. Cover. Cook another five minutes.

    After five minutes, turn off flame. Don't remove the cover. Let it sit for 20 minutes.

    After twenty minutes, its ready.




    My dogs don't eat this everyday. They get kibble some days. They also get a raw chopped up chicken carcass once a week to help keep their teeth cleaned.

    By the way - how long does that lot last? Are you cooking it up and storing it int he fridge, or making fresh batch every morning? If every day, mow many dogs does that lot feed?

    Thanks

    By their very nature, canines are carnivores.

    Don't try to reinvent what is DNA instinctive.

    .....even though they will take anything we throw at them.

    I put it in a big tupperware box and keep it in the refrigerator. It lasts my two dogs about four days.

    Sometimes I double up on the ingredients and freeze half of it in plastic bags. When I need it I just take out a bag and put it in a pot of water. It thaws within a couple of hours.

    Yes and no. They will naturally eat lots of vegetation and grass as well. Anything green stuffed full of chlorophyll usually. All meat diet is not good for dogs

    ^ Dogs are primarily carnivores but have the digestive capability to handle a certain amount of vegetable matter. This is unlike cats for example who cannot digest or survive with any.
    Dogs are wolves, wolves kill and eat prey. Including the animals digestive tract which is usually full of ground vegetable matter.

    Agree to a point. I think they tend to be carnivores by nature but they have been living with us humans for long enough to evolve to tolerate anything we throw at them. They do eat grass and overripe fruit naturally.

    This recipe works well too:
    -Scrape the leavings off the dinner plates.
    -Mix with rice.
    -Feed to dog.

    Aside from the fact you advocate killing of dogs in numerous threads so i would question your knowledge of them... you are wrong sunshine.

    You telling me if a cat eats some grass they will not survive? Hmm interesting. My cat used to eat chips. Both US and UK types. Chips and crisps. Not it's food by the way, would sneak it off the plate. They didn't die. Also, some feckwits put their pets on vege diets and they don't die.

    Also...dogs are not wolves lol That's like saying tiddle the tabby cat is a lion lol

    What has killing dogs got to do with it?
    Dogs and wolves are the same species.
    You might be able to trick your cat into eating chips, but it gets no nutritional value from them. If that's all you feed it will,starve.
    A dog could be fed on a veggie diet, but it wouldn't be very good for its health or digestion.
    You cat is not of the same species or even us genus as a lion.
    As usual pseudo, talking out your arse.

    Lots - who or why would someone with such an attitude care enough to know about dogs? Your ignorance proves it in this matter.

    That's what I said - you however, said dogs are wolves which they are not.

    You clearly said a cat would not survive eating something that was not meat. I showed they can and do. All the soi cats in Bangkok eat rice all day long.

    True, but you said they should not eat any and I simply said they actually need some veges and left to their own devices they indeed eat greens etc.

    WTF? Still both are felidae, non? but a Dog is a wolf? lol

    When I run out of dastardly kibble this is roughly what happens. However, the missus thought it would OK to do it with Somtam and some smelly fish as well. I let her clean up the mess 6 hours later lol

    Yeah, my dogs aren't into Somtom is the least way. The big male used to eat mangos, bananas etc until the Missus spoiled the lot of them with 'homecooked' meals much the same as Misskits recipe.

    BTW, best price on that dry food y'all are calling 'kibble'? is at Tops Market. The 10kg bag is like <1K THB. Can't remember the exact price but cheaper than Big C or Tescos.

    Smelly fish, and the husky goes bonkers. The smellier the better. He can smell a pilchard from 100 meters. Apples for the other one, and cucumber. They much prefer fruit and raw veg as snacks over the shop made crap.
