This recipe for dogs uses beef marrow bones, along with vegetables. This recipe is not really a full meal-more of a flavor and nutrient-enhancer. Items like marrow and bone broth can go a long way to entice some dogs who may otherwise not be enthused. Email me for a copy of this recipe.

I don’t even cook for myself! How can I cook for my dog?
We humans have the choice to cook for ourselves, go out to eat, get delivery, eat prepared food or whatever we wish. In our hearts and minds, we know what foods are healthy; we just don’t always eat them. But when it comes to our furkids, they have no choice in the matter, and it’s up to us to offer healthy options.
If left to their own devices, they would choose real food. (Have you ever seen a dog scarf down real meat, and turn his nose up at kibble? There’s a reason for this!) Making dog food can be way simpler than making human meals. For example, you never have to worry about presenting it in a fancy way, and you don’t need to do dishes afterwards, except for washing food and water bowls.
Is homemade dog food expensive?
When it comes to dog food, the sad reality is that the cheap stuff is often really unhealthy, and you may wind up paying for it later at the vet’s office. There are also some more costly ‘upscale’ dog foods available, and they can be expensive. Homemade dog food is an excellent way to offer the absolute best quality food while avoiding premium charges.
If I make food for my dog, will I spoil him?
On the contrary! You are taking care of him through food. Unfortunately, some people equate offering better food with spoiling, but the reality is you are simply offering food that will help keep your dog strong and healthy.
