Where to Find Tasty Homemade Treats and Raw Food Recipes for your Dog?
With many pet owners turning their backs on unhealthy commercial dog foods and making a switch to a raw food diet they are now constantly searching for homemade recipes and information on where to get the best raw food and what to use?
There is so much information out there but a lot of it can be bull crap so make sure you do your research with a fine tooth-comb. Today we are going to give a few links on excellent websites and books we like and trust and highly recommend. There is also plenty of free information too.
If you are new to or thinking about making the switch to a raw food diet be sure to do your research first before trying the switch. It can be a slow process for some pets and it is very important you know what you are doing. We have plenty of information here on our website to use.
♥ And it is very important to remember that just giving a pet certain cuts of meats is not bringing a balanced diet into your pets life. Meat alone can not give all the nutrients and vitamins your dog needs. Be sure to read up on what types of meats (hearts, livers, kidneys etc.) provide good nutrients and what types of supplements you may need to add to the diet of your pet (Maggie Rhines goes through all this in her book to the right)
Where To Get Your Meats?
This is probably an obvious answer for everybody but we still get many sent in questions on our Facebook page about frozen meats and chicken.
Yes, ask you local butcher. Some meat cuts may even be free but know what cuts of meats you want first and why you want them.
Now if you are confused about switching your dog to raw food in general, we created a comprehensive guide to raw food which covers:
- The best method to switch depending on your dog’s age, health and prior exposure to raw food
- The best methods to switch your dog to raw food
- Example recipes and preparation instructions
Order Meats Locally Online
This is an excellent service. Be sure to check online whether there is a local delivery service that will deliver cuts and also give information on the food.
For example, as we are based in Ireland, there is an excellent website called Dog Food Direct that provide meats and other services and deliver all around the country and it’s free. Check out there website here to get a feel of what they do, excellent service.
Dog Recipe Books and Websites
Yes, there are thousands of Dog Recipe books as well as websites and there is a handful of quality material we have come across.
Check out Amazon but be sure to go through the reviews to see what customers are saying, this always helps. Also check out Clickbank for some brilliant digital books on Dogs and dog recipe books. We have found plenty there over the years and really like Cook Book For Dogs and Feed Your Best Friend Better: Easy, Nutritious Meals and Treats for Dogs
There are a lot of websites out there with raw dog recipes that will help provide dogs will their nutritional requirements in the right proportions, without or with the need for supplements and vitamins.
Find sites that provide information on unprocessed raw meat, fruits and vegetables that contain the right amount of vitamins, minerals, proteins and other nutrients that dogs need to thrive. Also, there are some great videos on Youtube too.
Here are a few worth checking out
Dog Food Aid is a good site for information on certain types of dogs and especially sick dogs with arthritis or allergies.
We love Barf World here, an excellent website for information on nutrition.
Probably one of the most important websites we recommend is Primal Pet Foods simply because they provide a calculator where you can figure out the measurements for the approximate feeding amount for your pet. Check it out, pretty cool website.
And, one of my favourite people, Cesar Millan has a decent website full of excellent information and recipes too. Check it out here.
There is so much information out there we could keep on writing for weeks, so check out the books and sites here provided and research research research as we constantly repeat here on our site. Good luck.
