Advantages of homemade food

Classic dog food often comes with too many carbohydrates as a cheap filler. It is much healthier if you cook dog food yourself. Also, if you value sustainable production of pet food, you would do well to prepare it yourself. For example, you can make sure that all ingredients have been grown or produced in an ecological way – from meat to treats.

As a good base for all recipes, it is important that the quality of the ingredients is impeccable. A good mix of meat or fish, healthy carbohydrates and vegetables for vitamins is important. Every now and then, however, it may also be pure chicken, for example. In general, beef and lamb can be fed raw – but that also depends on your dog’s taste. Game and poultry should be cooked.

Attention: In all recipes with chicken, it is very important that no chicken bones are added, as these splinter when eaten and could injure the dog.
