Homemade dog food

DOG FOOD RECIPE; Home canned dog food

3 Lb. fresh Meat – chicken, duck, rabbit, turkey, beef, lamb, venison, liver, gizzards, heart or any combination thereof; if using ground beef it should have a high-fat content
Sweet Potato – 3 large, chopped
Fresh Spinach – 1 lb, uncooked
Fresh Peas – 1 lb, uncooked (or cooked garbanzo beans)
Oatmeal – 1 cup, uncooked (optional par-boiled barley)
Brown Rice – 2 cups, cooked
Fresh Eggs 4 large, lightly beaten
Egg Shells – 4 large, rinse and bake @ 350 for 10 minutes, process in blender until they look like fine sand
Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt – 1 cup
Fish Oil – ½ cup (Salmon oil or flax seed oil)
Fresh Parsley – ½ cup, finely chopped
Glucosamine – ¼ cup, powdered
Tomatoes – 3 large, chopped or diced
Dried Kelp – 10 Tbsp, crumbled
Fresh Garlic – 7 cloves, finely chopped (some may opt to omit garlic)
Water – 6 to 8 cups

In a large pot, boil 6 cups Water, add sweet potatoes and peas. Cook until tender.

Add meat, oatmeal, rice, fish oil, tomato, and garlic. Cook 40 minutes or until rice is done.

Add remaining ingredients, cook another 30 minutes, add water as needed for very thick, stew-like consistency. Remove from heat, immediately spoon into pint jars, top with lid, tighten band (do not over-tighten), process in pressure canner at 15 pounds for 90 minutes. (Follow directions for your pressure canner.) Cool completely, remove bands, check seals after 24 hours, store in cool, dry area.

Adjust ingredients to suit your dog’s dietary requirements; check with your veterinarian.
