Homemade Dog Food Judy's Foodies Style!

Homemade with good healthy ingredients so your dog may live a healthy & longer life. I started making dog food when my Golden Retriever became allergic to corn. He lived to be 2 weeks short from his 14th birthday. I then took in a rescued German Shepherd. She kept getting crystals in her urine. After 6 months of vet bills & a sick dog I started making her food too. She was severely abused her first year of life . I got her in her 3rd year. She was 70 lbs & small. One year later after being on this food she grew tall, never had crystals again & weighed a very healthy 110 lbs. The vet could not get over the difference in her. I have two rescued dogs now & they love this food.

3 LBS of Meat I use ground beef, ground turkey, or chicken. I switch it up so they do not get bored
3 LBS Raw Brown Rice
4 Cups Groats
1 Cup Ground Flax
1 LB Pearled Barley
3 LBS Vegetables, I do 1 pound of each using different vegetables. I use mixed vegetables, green beans, peas, peas & carrots, chopped spinach, shredded zucchini sometimes broccoli, sweet potato, pumpkin, & parsley.
32 Ounces of Broth be sure it does not have any celery or onion just a plain meat broth.
4 to 6 Cups Rolled Oats
In my big deep electric roaster I brown the meat using coconut oil about 1 tablespoon of the oil. Now add the broth, the rice, groats, barley & if using sweet potatoes or yams add those cut into chunks,& enough water to cover about 2 inches over the mixture. Cover & cook on highest temperature for about 2 hours stirring now & then & checking on cooking process.  Once the rice, barley & groats are tender & plump and potatoes are soft, add the oatmeal & frozen vegetables. Add more water if needed. Cover & cook until mixture is nice & thick like the picture above. Divide into storage containers or gallon freezer bags. I keep enough for four days in my frig & freeze the rest. This feed my two fifty pound dogs for seven days. I feed them each about 2 & 1/2 Cups. This batch actually had steak for the meat, mixed vegetables, shredded zucchini, & pumpkin in it.
