Homemade Dog Food

We have been making dog food for our golden retriever for the last four years. My dog is now 12 years old, and the vet has told us every year that she is healthy for her age.

More than four years ago, our dog was on thyroid medication and she was 105lbs, and she had a lot of cysts. I noticed she was not very spunky like she usually is. Our dog now has no cyst, and she now weighs 61lbs, and she has a lot more energy.

I wanted to share my recipe because I had a lot of friends and people that know my dog. Remember, I am not a vet, and before trying this recipe, please ask your vet first before you make this for your dogs.


Dutchess Dog Food


1 lb package of ground Foster turkey breast

8 boiled eggs

6 cups whole shredded carrots

9 cups of dry oatmeal

2 cups of brown rice

2 Cups of water



Boil 3 and 3/4 water in a saucepan, and after it boils, you put the 2 cups of rice in the boiling water and cover it. Let it cook for 40 mins or less. Then let it cool.

Place eight eggs in a saucepan 3/4 full of water and after it comes to a boil time them for 5 minutes, and after the timer goes off, you take the eggs off the burner and place a lid over the pan for 15 minutes. Drain the water and let them cool.

Cook the ground turkey meat in olive oil and sprinkle Himalayan salt until you see no more redness. Let the turkey cool off.

Take a food processor a shred your carrots, and place them in a big bowl. Grind your eggs in the food processor and place the eggs in a large bowl. Grind up your cooled off the turkey and place it in a bowl. Put the oatmeal in a large bowl and mix everything up well. Make sure everything is cooled before you put them in a sandwich bag.

I measure 2 cups in a sandwich bag and place them all in the freezer.

How I feed her is I take a bag out of the freezer overnight. So, I put 2 cups of water in the bottom of her bowl and but hand full of cut-up fresh kale and spinach.  I pour the fresh-made food over the fresh vegetables and mix it up, and she is all ready to go.

I feed her in the morning and around my dinner time. Then at night, she gets a whole carrot for a snack.


Blessings and enjoy!!!!
