Dog Food Recipe

Are you sick of Turkey yet? If you still have leftovers, why not make some nice food for your dog?

  • approx. 5 lbs of ground turkey

  • 3/4 cup canola oil

  • 4-5 cloves garlic

  • 32 cups water

  • 8-10 cups processed veggies (various)
    (carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, bean sprouts, potatoes, sweet potatoes, red peppers, spinach, beets, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.) NO ONIONS

  • 2-3 cans kidney beans

  • 1/2 molasses (optional)

  • 42-45 oz oatmeal (quick cooking oats)

  • eggs can be added to boost protein

In a large 24qt pot brown ground turkey, add canola oil and garlic. When well cooked, add water. Bring to boil, then add veggies that have been processed, (frozen or canned veggies will work too). Use dried kidney beans and soak them the night before preparing a batch of food. While cooking the meat have the beans in another pot cooking them.

Once cooked, they are added to the above mixture. Next, the oatmeal is added. Frequent stirring is necessary at this point as the mixture will stick. Remove from heat, cool and put into containers. you can occasionally add pumpernickel bread and some times substitute brown rice for some of the oatmeal.

More free recipes just like this one are available at a cool new site I just bookmarked.  However, some of the recipes on this site include things such as raisins that are poisonous to dogs.  Be sure to check out our article on the things that can poison your dogs before you make any kind of homemade food or treats for your 4-legged friends.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
