Homemade Dog Food

My Kiki, a Brussels Griffon, has developed itchy skin that has her scratching 24/7.  Her vet has suggested that it is food-related since we were feeding her a dog food that contained way too much grain that is not good for her.  We have switched her to a no-grain dog food and after a few days, she is not scratching as much.

In the meantime, I started doing some research and have found that many owners of that particular breed have opted to made their furbabies homemade dog food for many health reasons.  This recipe in particular has been recommended by a member of the BG group I belong to.  It is worth a try!

The recipe did not specify how much to feed and how often . . . I will continue to feed Kiki 1/2 cup morning and evening.  She is 17 pounds.


Original recipe makes 10 cups

6 cups water
1 pound ground turkey
2 cups brown rice
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 (16 ounce) package frozen broccoli, carrots and cauliflower combination


Place the water, ground turkey, rice, and rosemary into a large Dutch oven. 

Stir until the ground turkey is broken up and evenly distributed throughout the mixture; bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. 

Add the frozen vegetables, and cook for an additional 5 minutes. 

Remove from heat and cool. 

Refrigerate until using.
