    For people who want to make their own dog food, there are many quick and easy homemade dog food recipes available on the internet and in pet care books and magazines. Most dogs are easy to please and will enjoy the homemade food immensely. In fact, the owner may have to be careful to see that the dog is not overeating because the food tastes so good.

    Basic Homemade Dog Food Recipe Ingredients

    Most foods that people eat can be used in homemade dog food recipes. The basics to these recipes usually include some type of protein. Chicken, fish, lamb, pork, beef, milk, cheese and eggs are all great sources of protein. For people who hunt game animals such as deer and elk are also great protein sources and are lower in fat than other meats. Turkey is a good source of protein but it has been found that some dogs may be susceptible to the high concentrations of tryptophan in the turkey. For pet owner who have never given their dogs turkey they should try it out in small quantities to see if there is a problem.

    Other homemade dog food recipe ingredients should include whole grains such as oats and brown rice and all types of vegetables. Most dogs love vegetables such as green beans and cooked carrots especially if they are mixed with meats and grains. Legumes are also a good ingredient to use in homemade dog food recipes. Beans and peas are high in protein, high in fiber and low in fat. Creating a mixture with a few or many of these ingredients and using broth to moisten it will make most dogs feel like they are really special.
