Rotate your homemade dog food recipes using different protein sources, grains and vegetables for their specific vitamins, minerals and amino acid composition. This basic recipe is a simple starting point for your creativity.

Step 1

Bring 16 cups of water to a boil. Add the oats, cover and turn off the heat. Let the oats cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or until soft -- do not stir. Remove from the stove and let cool completely.

Step 2

Peel and dice carrots, then place in a saucepan. Cover in water and bring to a boil. Cook the carrots until fork tender, remove and let cool.

Step 3

Fold the cooked carrots, olive oil, vitamin E, bonemeal and health supplement powder or multivitamin into the oatmeal. Scoop the daily ration into your dog's serving dish: toy (2 to 15 pounds) 2/3 to 2 2/3 cups; small (15 to 35 pounds) 2 2/3 to 5 1/3 cups; medium (35 to 55 pounds) 5 1/3 to 7 cups; large (55 to 85 pounds) 7 to 9 3/4 cups; giant (85 to 165 pounds or more) 9 3/4 to 14 2/3 cups

  • Consult your dog's veterinarian before embarking on a homemade dog food diet.

  • If your dog exhibits signs of grain allergies, omit the grain component from his diet.

  • Substitute barley for the oats -- 4 cups of barley to 8 to 12 cups of water.

  • Substitute brown rice for the oats -- 3 cups brown rice to 6 cups of water

  • Substitute ground chicken or lean beef for the ground turkey.

  • Occasionally, substitute 2 pints of cottage cheese plus 4 eggs for the protein ingredient.

  • Daily rations of homemade dog food differ according to the ingredients in the recipe, as well as your dog's activity level and age. Let your dog's appetite and weight be the gauge. Overfeeding will produce loose stools.

  • Holistic veterinarian Dr. Richard Pitcairn recommends adding a healthy supplement to your dog's home-prepared meals, such as the recipe for "Healthy Powder" in his book, "Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats," as an alternative to canine multivitamins.
