In light of the recent dog food recalls, I have taken the plunge and started making dog food for one of our dogs. She has always had a sensitive stomach and recently it's gotten worse. After speaking with our vet, I know give her the following mixture
1 cup cooked chicken (you can use any type of meat here, chicken was on sale this week)
1 cup cooked white rice (you can also substitute other grains here)
1/2 cup vegetables (any except onions)
1 crushed dog vitamin
In the last few days since I started this, her demeanor is great and no upset stomach. It's like she's a puppy again. If you choose to do this with any of your animals, please consult your vet first to find out the nutritional needs of your animal. One day I need to sit down and break down the cost to see if this is better than the ultra expensive sensitive formula dog food she was eating.
