Homemade Pet Food

It's more important than you think

Ways to help you do it!

Understanding the Myth of Kibble
We know that most people have come to believe that dogs should only eat dog food and that feeding kibbled dog food is complete and balanced and healthy. Dog food, in particular kibble, is made of ingredients that usually have very little nutritional value and is actually largely responsible for most of the degenerative diseases seen in dogs today.
Sad but True.
We understand that this is hard to believe as everyone from your breeder to your trusted veterinarian will tell you that there is “good kibble” and that this type of food is healthy and contains everything that your dog needs. 
A Daily Diet of Crackers?
Just like humans, animals derive their health largely from good nutrition. How healthy would you be if you ate a diet of crackers and pretzels that had been filled with preservatives and then sprayed with vitamins, flavoring and coloring agents? 
And then imagine that this was your only food source that you had day in and day out.
This is what kibble is to your dog.-A diet that is lacking in fresh natural ingredients and the essential nutrients that are necessary to keep them healthy and have a long life. We want our dogs to have a life that is free from degenerative diseases such as arthritis, cancer, kidney disease and heart disease. But this type of standard pet food diet in kibbled form can also contribute to allergies, skin conditions, ear infections, digestive problems, bad breath and body odor. Not only does dry kibble lack nutritional value it also lacks enough moisture to keep dogs properly hydrated.
Switching to Homemade is NOT Difficult-Really!
Once pet parents understand the importance of a truly healthy freshly made meals, it’s a simple decision to switch to a healthy homemade diet.
Right?   Yes, but…….
