Save money on Dog food, make it yourself!

One thing I’m convinced will save me a lot of money is making my dog food at home. Not only that, just think of all the cans that I won’t be sending to the recyclery. I’ve got some picky eaters too, but they love their mama’s home made puppy chow.

This is a great weekend project, you can make a month’s worth of food in a couple of hours (or less) and store in the freezer. Just remember to freeze the batches in smaller increments so that the food will thaw more quickly.

Ingredients: (no measurements, just use about 60% protein, 20% vegetables, & 20% rice.  Broth to desired consistency, salt to taste)

  • chicken broth
  • liver
  • eggs
  • beans
  • mashed pumpkin
  • garlic salt
