Home Made Dog Food Recipes

Preparing dog food at home is not only beneficial to your pet's health, it also gives you the piece of mind of knowing exactly what your pet is taking in.
You are able to guarantee that the ingredients are fresh, and able to make adjustments to recipes to suit your pet's needs. The following recipes are some favorites of several "fur friends" around Houston.  These particular recipes do not include all of the necessary nutritional ingredients needed by your pet, they are simply meant to supplement and improve your dog's diet. Future recipes will include items appropriate for strict home made diets.
