Dog Food Ingredients

Healthy dog food ingredients

I have some great news for you about the dog food ingredients. All the main ingredients for the dog food recipes are readily available at your local grocery store. Ground beef, chicken, eggs and white rice are the base ingedients. All the recipes do require the addition of dog supplements of added omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and direct fed microbials. All the supplements  are available online.

Now I know some of you will say “you just want to sell me supplements”. My answer is; of course I do!

Almost twenty years ago I started feeding my dogs raw dog food. I quickly found out that the dogs needed supplementation to fill in the nutritional gaps in the raw diet. So I started adding a gram of this and 15 grams of that and on and on. The dogs did well. In fact they did so well I had visitors ask me what I spayed on my dogs to make them so shiny! It was funny actually. The supplements I recommend are my own and I call them “Dinovite” and “Lickochops“. These supplements will help fill in the nutritional gaps. The recipes will be deficient without adding the dog supplements.

Feeding your dog a Biologically Appropriate Raw Food diet “B.A.R.F.” plus supplements will help him do just great! Feeding your dog this way has some added benefits like; less vet visits, reduced shedding, less odor and a overall happy dog. Take the plunge and change your dog’s food. You and your dog will be happy made the change.

    Hi Ed,
    I came across your site searching for homemade dog food recipes.
    My Maremma is 6 month old working dog caring for my goats and animals and up until this week she’s always eaten all that I’ve giving her. Which has consisted of a high protein dog food, raw whole eggs and raw goats milk. She’s slowed down eating to half her normal consumption. Something is not right and I think its the dog food. I’ve decided to switch her over to a raw food diet and will follow the 7 day program you suggested. I would like to utilize what I have grown and raised on my property. I have chickens, pigs and goats. I feed my chickens grains and goat milk. I feed my pigs grains, goat milk and goat manure. I have access to ground beef that comes from locally raised cattle that feed only on pasture.
    What do you suggest I prepare for her?

  2. Hi,
    I have a 8 y/o springer spaniel who has had chronic elevated liver enzymes over the years. Energetic, happy wonderful guy, but I am really hoping preparing his food will help improve the situation. I have access to venison as my husband hunts a great deal. Am I able to exchange pound for pound the venison? Any concerns as this will be wild meat? Any special way to have the meat cut from the locker? Really appreciate your thoughts!
