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.


3 lbs Hamburger
2 large sweet potatoes
2 large white baking potaoes
1 bag of frozen peas
1 bag of frozen carrots
1 bag of frozen green beans
6 oz whole wheat pasta
1 cup cooked oatmeal or cooked barley
½ bag of mixed soup beans (various mixed beans, walmart has a 15 bean mix that I like)
6-8 hard boiled eggs
32 oz chicken broth (unsalted or low sodium)
1 3.2 oz package powdered dry milk
Beef flavored daily doggie vitamin (powder is what I use)

Soak beans the night before in hot water. Cook hambuger (do not drain). Cook frozen vegtables, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, pasta and beans and add to hambuger. Mix powdered milk with the chicken broth and stir into hambuger mixture. Add daily doggie vitamin appropriate for your size dog to each meal. I freeze meals in a 2 ½ cup glad ware bowls. I have dry food available for my dog at all times but I feed 1 2 ½ cup dinner of this recipe each evening. I am feeding a Mastiff and this recipe makes about 12 2 ½ cup servings for a 170 lb dog. You may only need a ½ cup or 1 cup depending on your dogs size if that the case 1 recipe will last alot longer then 2 weeks. This freezes well.

Pet food recipe

This recipe does have a lot of wholesome ingredients, but I found out the hard way that giving them wheat and mixing proteins (chicken, beef, milk, etc.) affects their gut and digestion. A specialist vet told me my dog had developed inflammatory bowel disease in part because I was not giving one protein source at a time. I was switching frequently. Another dog also had some issues because of this. Hard lesson learned, and they both suffered quite a bit because I was not educated about it!

Also, gluten free grains are best...rice, gluten free oats or quinoa are much healthier for dogs.
