I sure wouldn't and I know my dogs feel better when they've had a good meal. They want to jump around and play and after that they crash on my favorite chair
Certain foods should be avoided when you make homemade recipes.
Never feed your dog chocolate, alcohol, onions, pork (including bacon), raw fish, raw eggs, milk or bones. Each of these has its own ill effects on dogs. Limit the use of tuna because of the risks associated with the mercury levels in it.
Feed liver in moderation & not at all if you're giving your dog vitamin A supplements. Overdoses of vitamin A can be toxic & should not be in homemade dog food unless your vet told you how much to put into the homemade dog food.
One of the gentlest foods you can give your dog is chicken & rice.
Vets have always put my dogs on a chicken & rice formula like this one if they aren't feeling quite right or they are allergic to many of the dog foods in the stores.

Chicken & rice dog food plus added fiberSick dogs need extra help.
When Spooky is taking medication for an illness or allergy, it can sometimes cause stomach problems as well as loose stools. This recipe should do the trick but ask your vet first before using it. I got my vet's approval before I tried this recipe on him and it worked.
Use the Chicken & rice recipe & add fiber to the mix.
Psyllium, a bulk-forming laxative, is used to treat loose stools. It absorbs liquid in the intestines, swells, & forms a bulky stool, which is easy to pass. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses ask your Vet for more information. Psyllium comes as a powder, granules, or capsules.
I bought a big container from Trader Joe's here in California. It was around $6.00. If I had bought Metamucil, it would have cost me $15.00.
I know that many dog food recipes are available on the Internet & in books. Look for recipes that are high in protein content & make sure they don't contain foods that are harmful to you dog. Include some small amounts of vegetables in your dog's food. Continue reading about more homemade dog food recipes, all free!
My dog almost bled to dead (rat poison symptom) & I feel we have to take matters into our own hands to stop big business from killing our dogs.
If you make a big batch, freeze it & thaw when needed
Until Menu Foods & US based manufacturers can guarantee that they will not buy from China & other countries that use banned pesticides, rat poison & a fertilizer that uses a plastic based substance, we should be making our own dog food for our pets.
I think we should send a message & not buy the food, let them have a taste of shrinking profit margins & get them to produce good, healthy & trusted foods rather than owners having to make their own homemade dog food recipes.
I have thrown out the kibble I use to use for Spooky & Elle. Canines in the wild never ate grains & corn. The first Hills Science Diet had as it's first ingredients, peanut hulls!
Homemade dog food is far better than peanut hull and vets always prescribe a bland chicken and rice recipe for those dogs who are sensitive to canned food or dogs that are unwell and undergoing treatment.
Vets have always put my dogs on a chicken and rice dog food formula like this one if they aren't feeling quite right or they are allergic to many of the ingredients found in store bought kibble and diets in the stores.
