The best puppy food
- for any type of puppy -
is one like this homemade puppy food recipe... because you can control what we eat (and don't eat) when you make it just for us.
A simple home made puppy food with sardines will give any pup the energy he needs to romp all day.
(Don't gag... we LOVE sardines!)
If our breath becomes intolerable as we slobber you with kisses, simply offer us a dog treat for dessert.
But really, when we are fed the right foods, our puppy bodies are in perfect balance and you shouldn't notice any adverse side effects.
Ah, the joys of being a puppy!
(napping under the couch, playing with our favorite humans, and of course FOOD).
All it takes is a few minutes to chop the ingredients, and some time in the slow cooker. Powerful omega-3 fatty acids in every bite! Be prepared for puppy happiness :-)
Place everything into a slow cooker and cook on high for 6 - 7 hours. You will know it's ready to cool for your puppy when you test to see if the rice is cooked through. HINT: Try substituting other healthy vegetables, such as chopped green beans, peas, plums or even sweet potato every now and then. Choose organic foods whenever possible. Beef or lamb can be switched out for the chicken. Be sure you choose good quality meats that are fresh from the market.
NOTE: This homemade puppy food recipe makes about 10 cups of cooked puppy food. The rice will absorb all the filtered water, and the fruits and vegetables will cook down some. To determine how much to feed your puppy, see this easy to read feeding guide...
