Meatloaf Recipe for Dogs with Fruit & Vegetables

Homemade dog food provides your pet with a balanced diet and is particularly beneficial for dogs with special nutritional needs. Meals like this Meatloaf recipe for dogs can cater to your pet’s specific nutritional needs. You can make ingredient swaps based on the advice of your veterinarian or canine nutritionist.

Dogs with overweight, underweight, kidney or heart disease, and dogs with liver disease are just a few of the animals that can benefit from home-cooked meals. This doggie meatloaf recipe works for most pets, but discuss any diet changes with your veterinarian beforehand – especially if your dog is in serious health.

If not done correctly, homemade dog food diets can actually do more harm than good. Too many nutrients can lead to toxicity over time, and a nutritional deficiency could leave Fido with an irreversible health problem.

Meatloaf recipe for dogs

This meatloaf recipe for dogs is made with fruits and vegetables. I use celery, carrots, and apples. If these fruits and vegetables are not available in your area, you can use dog-friendly products as replacements. Blueberries, green beans, bananas, pumpkins, or peas would all make great substitutes.

  • 1.5 lb. lean ground beef
  • 3 Celery sticks (chopped)
  • 2 large carrots (chopped)
  • 1 Apple (pitted and chopped)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 White bread slices (chopped)
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup Wheat germ
  • 6 ounces. Tomato paste

Preheat your oven to 350˚F.

Mix all ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl. To do this, you have to get your hands dirty. Just add all of the ingredients to the bowl and use your hands to mix everything together.

Once all of your ingredients are thoroughly mixed, press the mixture into a loaf pan. Bake in your 350 ° oven for about 80 minutes.

You will notice that the loaf will turn a golden brown color on top when cooked through thoroughly. You can also use a meat thermometer to make sure it is cooked to the correct temperature, depending on the protein source used (beef, chicken, ground turkey, etc.).

How much to feed: I recommend feeding about 1/2 cup of this dog meatloaf recipe for every 20 pounds of body weight. This recommendation applies to 2 servings per day. This is just a guideline. Lazy pets and older dogs may not need that many. It is extremely important that you ask your veterinarian about the best serving size for your dog.

How to save: You can store leftover food in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days or freeze it and it can be kept for up to 3 months. Keep in mind that this recipe contains no preservatives, so it won’t last nearly as long as commercial dog food.
