3 Raw Dog Food Recipes for Puppies

Raw diets are excellent for dogs. They boost your dog's energy. He will not need supplements or vitamins anymore. He will stop smelling like a dog. Raw dog food means also healthier teeth, skin, less digestive problems and fewer visits to the veterinarian. Raw food is particularly important for puppies because it allows them to follow their natural course of growth. Believe it or not, raw food is also cheaper than commercial dog food, considering your dog is healthier and you stop paying pricey vet bills.

The only trick with raw dog food is that you have to very careful with the freshness of the ingredients. Never feed your dog old food and carefully wash the meat and the vegetables before preparing any recipe. I am going to present you 3 raw dog food recipes that you can prepare very easily for your dog or puppy.

1. Natural Mix

¾ lbs minced raw organs (chicken liver, heart, kidneys, or a mix of these) ¼ freshly grated carrot 1 small cup of grated zucchini ½ cup of chopped broccoli 1 teaspoon of olive oil

First mix the vegetables and the olive oil and then add the meat. Serve the food! Note that zucchini can help your dog lose some weight as they are low on calories.

2. Sushi Delight

¾ lbs salmon (boiled or steamed) 2 cups of boiled white rice (you can use brown as well); ½ grated carrot 1 teaspoon of olive oil 1 raw egg

Mix the rice with the carrots and the oil (you can add other veggies like grated zucchini or minced steamed broccoli). Add the raw egg and mix until you have a consistent mixture. Shape the mixture into small sushi-sized pieces. Cut the salmon into appropriate slices and place it over each rice piece. Serve the sushi!

3. Chicken Breast & Green Beans

3 cups of minced raw chicken breast ½ cup of grated carrots 1 cup of steamed green beans (minced if the dog is small-sized) 1 medium-sized steamed sweet potato (minced) 1 teaspoon of oil (olive or flaxseed)

First you have to mince and steam the green beans and the sweet potato until they become tender. Then mix the chicken with the carrots and the oil. Add the steamed vegetables (they shouldn't be hot) and mix with the other ingredients. Serve the food!

Starting your puppy on a raw diet might seem hard at first. If you have doubts, you can boil the meat a little and steam the vegetables before preparing any recipe. Also, it's best to consult with your vet before starting your puppy on a specific diet.
