This is a user-submitted pet food recipe and has not been tested. Please check your pet’s dietary and nutritional requirements with a veterinarian before using this recipe.

This is a healthy and light recipe that is easy on your dog/cats stomach. I make this for my dog. The cat is interested only in the chicken.



Boil chicken in one pot, carrots and peas in another. We don’t want cross contamination. Drain liquids.

Chop chicken and carrots into small bites (depending on pet size). Add to cooked rice and serve.

Storage - smell

ok so we do this and freeze whatever is left in bags but my mom set one in the fridge for morning to defrost. It has an odd smell but once we heat it up it doesn't smell, what could the small be?

Puppies require a special diet to help their development; what might be good for an adult dog, might not provide the right nutrition for a puppy. Also, each animal, even when of the same breed and age, may have different feeding requirements.

We'd recommend that you consult a veterinarian about whether this recipe provides all the nutrients that your growing puppy needs, and if so, what the correct amount is per serving, and how often to serve it. The vet should also be able to work with you to develop a complete homemade diet plan that is best for your dog.
