How do I cook food for my dog, Teneriffe Vet?


There are many different ways to feed your pooches and the shops certainly stock a huge variety of pet food currently available in the Australia. However, there are also a lot of us who want to home-prepare food for our furry kids. It is also important that the food we feed our doggies are also nutritionally balanced.

I often get asked by clients who want to cook something nice for their pet dogs and if this is OK. My opinion is that as long as the cooked food contains the right amount of ingredients and meet a dog's nutritional needs, why not?

How do I cook food for my dog, Teneriffe Vet?


Here is the ingredient list to home-prepare an AAFCO balanced diet for an 18kg adult dog:

240g cooked rice/oats
120g cooked meat
2 teaspoon olive oil
30g pureed veggies or fruit
4g calcium carbonate*
1g potassium chloride*
1 adult multivitamin tablet

* You can buy calcium carbonate as a supplement from your chemist. Potassium chloride is available as a salt substitute and can be found in the supermarket.
