Make your own Dog Food

From Statesboro Market2Go

<p>I used these guidelines to make a batch of food that would provide about a two week supply for my 50-lb dog, served twice-a-day along with half a cup of dry food. Use any combination of quality ingredients, striving for the same kind of balance and variation you want in your own food. I recommend you talk with your vet and look for recipes on line.<br /> I cook meat, veggies, and rice separately, then combine into baking pan and cook like a casserole to achieve firmer consistency. <br /> Eliminate or minimize onion and garlic as they can be toxic to some dogs.</p>
