August 27, 2011: Dog Food Recipe

Bookmark and Share
This is a recipe I got from my mother-in-law. Her dog, Ebony, was prescribed this diet by her veterinarian, in order to keep track of the amount of protein she eats. I started making it for my dog, Colby Jack, and he loved it. The added benefit of making your own dog food is that you know exactly what’s in it – no fillers, just good, human grade food. Yes, it takes some time to prepare, but this recipe makes a three-week supply and you can freeze two-thirds of it in Ziploc bags or small containers (which also makes it easy to feed while traveling).

Low Protein Dog Food

2 pounds 80% lean ground beef
8 eggs, blended (shells and all)
24 slices bread
5 cups white rice
1 cup olive oil

In a large pot, cook the rice in 10 cups water for 20 minutes. Brown the ground beef.

In a very large container, such as bucket, mix together all the ingredients.

Feed 10 to 12 ounces per day for a 60 pound dog, or more for an active dog.

Tip: You an easily add bits of leftover vegetables, such as carrots, potatoes, green beans, etc. to provide some variety.
