Question by Alicia M: What do you think of homemade dog food???
I have two small dogs- (Daisy is a female chihuahua fox terrier & Nacho is a male papillon fox terrier) and so far I have been feeding them Purina Puppy Chow. They are almost 10 months old and getting ready to switch to regular dog food but with the rising concerns on pet food, I’m considering switching them to homemade food. I’ve read a lot about it and what foods are toxic to dogs and that their diets should be a balance of protein, starches, and veggies. I was wondering what everyone thinks about making food at home. I’ve seen lots of recipes for chicken, beef, turkey, tuna, salmon, etc with some sort of grain, generally oats or rice, and some veggies of mixed veggies or potatoes. I didn’t get too much info on vitamins and supplements that this sort of a diet would not provide as the bagged dry dog food does and was wondering if anyone knows about that? I tried to ask my vet but he just blew me off and said dogs should eat dog food and “people food” won’t give them nutrients.

if you give them absolutely perfectly portioned dog food every day, then it would be fine, but that would take a REALLY long time to prepare. just don’t use wet food, and IAMS must be boycotted.
