Default Homemade cooked food

You know what they say about homemade mommy's food right? well based on that i thought if it is good for my dog (or if you want better than feeding him any brand of dry food, even Orijen/Acana) to cook him chicken for example, boil some fresh vegetables, mix them all in the blender and create a cream-like pulp that is fresh, that you know what is made from (one of the posivite things of eating home food, not only for dogs but for humans also), carbohydrate FREE but full of pure meat, veggies and vitamins.That's what i thought but i wanted your opinions because my boy is still developing (68 days old, 9.7 lbs) and i don't want to harm him because it's still just a thought.What's your opinion on this?
Thanks in advance!!

I don't feed raw so I can't give you a huge recc on this, but most on this forum that feed raw do the PMR or prey model raw it doesn't feed veggies at all, as wolves in the wild wouldn't eat veggies & it may be hard for dogs to digest them - IE they will poop them up. So I will definitely let others chime in that know more, but I just wanted to say that veggies are carbs - so are fruits. So just because you aren't feeding grains doesn't mean you aren't feeding carbs. Just an FYI

It's not exactly raw food.Think of it as dry food one stage before becoming dry...something like that haha.I've seen many people that feed their dogs raw meat (any raw meat) give then spinach for example.So i'm not sure if what you say is right.You're right about the carbs in the veggies, fruits etc, it was a mistake out of rush! Anyway, thanks for your response friend

You need to do some research on making your own home cooked food for your pups, you need to add certain vitamins to the mixture. I checked into it a couple of years ago and don't remember what all needed to be added. You can do your research on-line. Good luck!!

As far as veggies and fruits go I think there's a list of what's good and bad for pups in one of the specific forums on this site. You can use raw fruits and veggies for snacks instead of store bought treats as well. Good luck!!

There is many opinions about fruits and veggies, some say no, some yes, some yes to some veggies and fruits. I feed raw with raw egg(shell in) and fish oil.
If you have to cook all that then why not raw? It is better for them.

When using/making a home cooked diet for your dog the thing that most people overlook is calcium. Most home cooked diets dont have enough. When feeding raw dogs get enough calcium because they get raw bones as well. I home cooked for Gouda for 3+ years. Home cooking I feel is a good option just make sure your pup especially one who is still growing gets enough calcium

Home-made food is great, but nonetheless, we would not have been able to achieve anything without various cooking equipment. So I love home cooking as well as food in a good restaurant. By the way, someone knows where you can buy a quality and expensive multicooker. Most stores sell some dubious goods at very high prices. We have not long ago seen an advertisement at http://ianboer.com.au and thought about ordering them, but first we want to know what you think about this company ...

Default Homemade food

Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum and have a 4 month old female boxer. I usually cook chicken breasts and mix with rice and her dry food. I thought I'd give her some variety and bought beef liver and am cooking it now. I read to be careful about amount because it contains so much iron that it could be toxic. Does anyone have a recommendation about beef liver and how much I can feed her in a meal?

Thanks!
