Homemade Dog Food Recipes

I'm very limited on money right now. I have three dogs to feed. I can't afford dog food right now. I have tons of oatmeal, stuffing, rice, and ground beef. Can I mix all these together to feed my dogs?

A mixture of cooked rice and ground beef is fine for your dogs. You can add plain cooked oatmeal to help them "go." If they already have loose stools or go many times per day, leave the oatmeal out as it has lots of fiber.
Stuffing is not good for dogs.
This may not contain all the nutrients dogs need long term, but it's surprisingly nutritious for dogs, in fact more so than those cheap grocery store foods like Ol' Roy, which contain a lot of by-products and indigestible fillers.

I think you need a veggie in there. I would add carrots and peas. they are cheap right now . You need to try and have 1/3 meat, 1/3 veggies and a carb such as rice.Oatmeal is the same family as the rice.


Check out all the recipes on line and I think you will see that they all have lots of veggies. I wouldn't stay with just carrots as they can contribute to your pet getting kidney stones.

I feed mine ground turkey, butternut squash, carrots, peas, brown rice, green beans, spinach and add canned pumpkin if they are constipated. They love it and I know what's in it. And it's pretty tasty too!!!
