NOTE: In an effort to simplify the homemade dog food recipe I have incorporated the use of supplements. Without the supplements the homemade dog food recipes would need an additional 10 to 20 ingredients. Unfortunately, our current agricultural practices yield foods with a fraction of the nutrient content of wild counterparts.
That said; this dog food recipe is deficient without the two supplements that are essential to the recipe: Dinovite dog supplement and Supromega omega 3 fatty acid dog supplement. Feeding this recipe without the supplements will result in multiple nutritional deficiency diseases.
Purchase the dog supplements needed for these recipes.

Yeast Starvation Dog Food Ingredients:
- 10 lbs. of raw ground beef
- 18 hardboiled eggs including the shells-cooled (the egg shells supply digestible calcium to your dog. Yes, studies have proved that the calcium in egg shell is highly absorbable.)
- 1 tube of Supromega omega 3 fatty acid Supplement (This supplies important omega 3 fatty acids. It also contains natural source vitamin E.)
- Dinovite daily dog supplement (This supplies a host of vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes, zinc and live direct fed microbials. Dinovite also has a nutritious plant component in the “Alfalfa Nutrient Concentrate” that replicates the partially digested plant matter of herbivores. All great stuff!)I use 1 tablespoon of Dinovite per cup of dog food or add 2-3 cups of the powdered Dinovite per complete batch. In the video I show the Dinovite Liquid but now I use the powder because Dinovite has discontinued production of the “Dinovite liquid” in the single serve packets.
Yield: 32 cups of dog food.
- In a very large bowl, bucket or in your plugged kitchen sink, crush the cooled hard boiled eggs (and shells) into small pieces.
- Add 8oz. of Supromega omega 3 fatty acid Supplement (1tube). You can also serve this when you feed your dog. I prefer to add this each time I feed because of the fishy smell.
- Add raw ground beef.
- Mix well and completely with your hands or with a large,strong spoon until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
- Yields about 32 cups of finished dog food.

Storing your Yeast Starvation Dog Food:
Place 2-3 days worth of yeast stavation dog food in zip lock bags or plastic freezer containers. Store them in your freezer. You can also make individual patties or meatballs in single daily servings, freeze them on cookie sheets and remove and store in larger bags/containers once frozen. Thaw as needed.
I personally prefer the freezer containers because they are easy to fill, thaw and serve. There is never any mess. I take one out and let it thaw on my counter. Feed my dogs and store the unused portion in my refrigerator. When it’s empty I wash it and it is ready for the next batch. It works well.
NOTE: Remember you are handling raw meat so use common sense when making, storing and serving this food. Use the same precautions you would use when handling raw meat for your family.
Serving Size for your “Yeast Starvation Dog Food”:
*Special note: These are general guidelines, we are not trying to land a man on mars. If your dog is losing a little weight and this is not desired, increase the amount you are feeding. If your dog is gaining weight on the serving size then cut back a little. In short, adjust the serving size depending on your dogs age, weight and activity level.
- 10 lb. dog – 1/2 cup dog food daily + 1/2 tsp Supromega + 1/2 tbs Dinovite
- 20 lb. dog – 1 cup dog food daily + 1 tsp Supromega + 1 tbs Dinovite
- 40 lb. dog – 2 cups dog food daily + 2 tsp Supromega + 2 tbs Dinovite
- 60 lb. dog – 3 cups dog food daily + 3 tsp Supromega + 3 tbs Dinovite
- 80 lb. dog – 3 1/2–4 cups dog food daily +3 1/2 tsp Supromega + 3 1/2 tbs Dinovite
*Special Note: If you add the supplements to the whole batch when making the dog food recipe it is not necessary to add them with each serving. Use whichever method you find easier.
Introducing the yeast Starvation Dog Food”:
- Fast your dog for 24 hours before starting this diet. Water should be available to your dog during the fast. This will give time for the old dog food to pass through your dog’s digestive tract. It is important to follow this procedure to limit digestive upset. This is an important step, ignoring this step greatly increases your dog’s chance of having digestive upset.
- Day one and two: Feed a portion 1/4 the size of a normal meal.
- Day three and four: Feed a portion 1/2 the size of a normal meal.
- Day five and six: Feed a portion 3/4 the size of a normal meal.
- Day seven: Feed a full portion.
- Special Note: The whole process takes 8 days when you include the 24 hour fast. This method will allow your dog’s digestive tract time to adapt to the new food.
This method will allow your dog’s digestive tract time to adapt to the new food. Please follow this introductory method, your dog will be fine. Your dog will not starve or hate you. Rapid diet changes can cause vomiting and diarrhea. A horrendous mess all over your house!
***Important Note: Do not mix kibble and the “Yeast Starvation Dog Food” together! Doing so will GREATLY increase the chances of digestive upset for your dog! This will also completely defeat the purpose.
***Very Important Note: Sometimes the yeast causing your dog’s yeast infection die off rapidly after you start this yeast starvation dog food. If this happens your dogs symptoms can initially get worse. Symptoms like increased itching, redness and sores . Some dogs even get lethargic. This is caused by toxins in your dogs system that are the result of the mass yeast die off. Serving distilled water during this process can help draw out toxins.
I also recommend a soothing dog shampoo with essential oils like Dogosuds. This will help wash away any irritants on your dogs skin without causing any additional problems. This step is well worth the added time and money.
