Raw Dog Food Recipe

Raw Dog Food Recipe

Hey everyone! This recipe is a little different than my usual as it is for my sweet puppy, Allie-Jean. when I realized she had severe allergies to mosquitoes, fleas, ants, etc, I did a ton of research into how to help her repel these bugs & heal her skin. She would chew the hair off of her back and legs & bite herself raw. Medicated shampoos & other normal treatments weren’t enough. My research brought me to a raw diet with supplements like coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, turmeric, and vitamin supplements. I could have just added these items to her food and water daily to help her skin, but the ful recipe seemed the most beneficial and easiest for me to manage as I can make a little over a month’s worth in one day.

Recipe:

6 lbs of ground meat (anything except turkey or pork, I try to get organic grass fed when possible)
1 lbs of chicken livers
1 lbs of chicken hearts
1 can of wild caught salmon
1 lbs organic carrots (if you get the ones with greens on top, use those too)
2-4 organic apples depending on size
1 bunch of parsley
1 bag of organic spinach or power greens
5 cloves of garlic
3 organic, free range eggs-shell on
1 cup of raw pumpkin seeds or pepitas
1 cup of organic, raw, unfiltered, cold-pressed coconut oil
1 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup of raw local honey
1 cup of vitamin supplements
3 tbsp of turmeric powder

Directions:

1.) Place all ground meat into large stock pot, mix together thoroughly
2.) Grate carrots and apples and add to pot
3.) Warm coconut oil gently by placing measuring cup of oil into a bowl of hot water
4.) In batches puree remaining ingredients in food processor or blender, mixing into meat mixture periodically
5.) Using a 1 oz ice cream / cookie scoop to measure out balls of mixture onto lined baking sheets
6.) Allow to freeze overnight then package in freezer gallon size bags

Note: Allie eats 3 portions in the morning & 2 at night – she is a 12 lbs dog. She may go down to 4 a day now that she isn’t a puppy. This food is highly concentrated nutritionally, so your dog doesn’t need to eat as much as the dry store bought food. Your dog also may drink less water due to the moisture in the food. If your pup is still having some skin issues, add a splash of apple cider vinegar to their water and an extra tsp of coconut oil to their food each day until they find relief.

IMPORTANT WARNING!

This is raw meat that could potentially attract harmful bacteria and parasites if handled poorly or of poor quality. Studies have shows a drastic reduction in harmful bacteria in organic and grass-fed/free range meat due to the smaller operations and less crowded (thus cleaner) conditions. The same goes for the eggs. Wash them thoroughly with soapy water to ensure there is no bacteria on the shell-that is the main source of salmonella.
