This recipe uses two sources of protein to offer a variety of flavors within the same meal. You can use just one meat or substitute different protein sources like fish, venison or rabbit. This homemade wet food for dogs would be excellent for any adult pup as long as they have no particular dietary restrictions or needs.
Before switching to this (or any other homemade meal) for your pup, it’s a good idea to have a conversation with your veterinarian or a canine nutritionist. Like humans, dogs have unique nutritional needs. Some dogs may require more calories than others, while other dogs require higher levels of protein in their meals. If your dog has health issues, their nutritional needs will vary depending on their condition and the severity of the issue.
Providing your dog with the best possible nutrition is not as easy as most people think. We want only the best for our dogs, but a home-cooked diet may not always be the best option. If you don’t provide nutritionally balanced meals, your dog could be suffering from nutrient deficiencies or an overdose of certain vitamins and minerals.
This is why it is so important to consult an expert before making any changes to your pup’s diet. This recipe does not provide a balanced diet for all dogs.

This is a safe and healthy recipe made with food grade ingredients. Not only can you feed it to your dogs, you can even eat it!
Many commercial diets consist of artificial ingredients, fillers, and other junk that does more harm than good to your pet’s body. As you probably already know, high-quality, commercial-grade dog foods made with all-natural and organic ingredients are very expensive.

How much to feed: I recommend feeding about 1/2 cup of food per 20 pounds of body weight. This recommendation is for 2 servings per day. This is only a guideline. Lazy pets and older dogs may not need as many. It is extremely important to consult your veterinarian regarding the best portion size for your dog.
How to store: You can store leftover homemade wet food in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days or freeze it and it will keep for up to 3 months. Keep in mind that this recipe doesn’t contain any preservatives, so it won’t last nearly as long as commercial dog food.
