Why You Should Make Your Own Dog Food And Biscuits

Jun 26, 2008
Recently, a few dog food products have been recalled because they contained fillers that were thought to be harmful to dogs. Even products that were not recalled contained some form of preservative and the quality of the ingredients is never clear to the dog owner. Certainly there is no substitute for healthy, fresh, carefully selected foods in any diet, be it human or canine. Preservatives, artificial colorings and artificial flavorings are a cause for concern, and pet owners should be aware that these types of ingredients along with other fillers appear in most commercially prepared pet foods.

Dubious quality ingredients in dog food is without doubt a cause for concern. However there is an alternative to buying commercial dog food and that is to make your own. Homemade dog food and biscuits or other doggy treats can be simple to prepare and very worthwhile in terms of your pet's health and your budget.

If you are can make a meal then you can make homemade dog food and biscuits. Making your dog's meals is as simple as making a casserole for your family's dinner. And making homemade dog biscuits is similar to baking cookies and just as easy. The difference of course, is the taste and perhaps the shape. As you can see, making homemade dog food and biscuits is simpler than you'd expect and before too long your dog will be eating healthy treats made with meats and vegetables.

Unlike canned or packaged dog food, the potential for harmful ingredients is practically eliminated since the ingredients used are fit for human consumption. Recipes for homemade dog food and biscuits tend to contain ingredients which can already be found in your fridge and pantry, ensuring your dog eats as healthily as you do.

Before you begin preparing your own homemade dog food and biscuits, it's a good idea to observe your pet's eating habits. Make a note of what his favorite flavors are and which flavors he dislikes. This will give you a good idea of which recipes are best suited to his tastes when you begin to look for recipes for homemade dog food and biscuits. It will save you both time and money because you won't make the mistake of buying and preparing food your dog won't like. Having said this, no doubt you are aware that dogs aren't really fussy eaters.

Although buying high quality ingredients to make homemade dog food and biscuits might seem somewhat costly, remember that you're actually investing in your dog's health as it will increase his lifespan, make him more energetic and have a better disposition. You too would be happy to have a healthier and happier pet.

Once you get into the habit of making homemade dog food and biscuits, you will never go back to buying cans from a supermarket. It may take a bit of organization initially but once you get this down it will be relatively straightforward preparing good quality meals for your pet. After all, you like knowing what is in the food you serve to your family so why not go the extra mile with your pet's food ?
