10 Easy Steps to Making The Best Dog Food Ever!

Hello my Wag-Tail buddies. Today, I will be sharing with you the best dog food my hooman has ever made for me! 

I love this dog food because it is homemade. And when it’s homemade, you are sure of the quality. There are no added preservatives. I am only getting the best nutrition. I get all the nutrients I need in equal proportions of Carbohydrate, Protein and Fat.

And most importantly, it is easy to make! It will not take too much of your hooman’s time to prepare this very nutritious and delicious meal.

I am so excited to share this with you so let’s get started!

These are the ingredients needed to make this best dog food ever!

  • 2.2 pounds of ground meat - beef, pork, chicken, turkey, duck… your choice. You can also do a mix of these meat options. Just take note of any allergies. I am allergic to poultry meat so my hooman is using beef.
  • 4 cups of mixed vegetables - my hooman uses cabbage, carrots, string beans and chayote. You can use any veggies except nightshade vegetables like eggplant, tomatoes and no onions and garlic.
  • 1 cup oatmeal - any kind of oatmeal will do.
  • Water
  • Cooked rice (boiled) - this will be mixed together with the cooked meat mixture upon serving.

Here are the 10 easy steps in cooking this dog food: 

  1. Add water to the meat until it boils and all visible fats float on the surface.
  2. Strain the water to remove the fats.
  3. Put back the meat on fire with enough water to cook the rest of the ingredients.
  4. At this point, boil the meat for a few minutes, say 10 minutes under low heat. 
  5. You can now pour the veggies into the mixture.
  6. Cook for another 10 minutes still under low heat.
  7. Add the oatmeal, then cook for another 10 minutes still under low heat.
  8. Don’t forget to stir the meat occasionally so it will not burn the bottom.
  9. Check if the meat is completely cooked and the water is completely absorbed.
  10. Once there is not much water left, then the cooking is done!


Cool down the food and transfer into a big container and store in the fridge. This recipe is good for one week for my size.

You may cook this in large batches and keep them in the freezer if your hooman doesn’t have time to cook this on a weekly basis.

Service size and suggestion:

This will depend on your size. As for me, I am a cute little Beagle so I get 350 grams of the meat mixture and 150 grams of rice and this is once a day. I eat this first thing in the morning. Yummy!

I hope you enjoy this recipe and let me know how it goes! 

Happy eating!



Your Wag-Tail buddy
