This is really good Thanks...It is only in the years that we have we been led to believe that dogs can not survive without packaged dog food. We are told that it would be harmful if we were to give them the scraps from our own home cooked meals. This is pure poppycock!

1 cup oatmeal uncooked
Zero nutritional value



1 tablespoon beef bouillon granules,
Wayyyyy too much sodium

3/4 cup cornmeal
Entirely undigestable


3 cups whole wheat flour
see above



The point of "home cooking" is to give your pets a higher quality diet than they'd have on commercial pet foods. If you wouldn't feed iams, purina, pedigree, etc. then you wouldn't feed this recipe.

The only thing that might do an ounce of good is the egg.

Agreed. As far as the oatmeal goes, if you are going to use any grain at all, the only way a dog can get ANY nutrient out of it is by cooking it.

Sounds yummy...
My brian and britney must taste this delicious recipe...
They will surely love it...^_^
It may be alright to feed a small amount of this recipe on occasion, however this is really not a meal fit for a dog, more a meal fit for a human. Dogs need meat, organs, and bone in order to thrive, not the stuff mentioned here. Like several others have said, the only nutritional part of these recipes are the eggs. Dogs simply cannot utilize various forms of grains like we can. There systems are not adapt to grains because they wouldn't eat them in the wild. There digestive systems are the same as they were in the wild. I would defiantly try cooking something more fit for a canine than a human.

Homemade dog food doesn't have to be complicated as long as you provide your dog with essential nutrients such as vegetables, pasta, rice, cereals, protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals.

Some of us believe that veggies, pasta, rice, cereals, etc. are NOT essential to a dog's healthy diet.

I suggest that if anyone is looking at home cooking - they do their homework and not just copy off recipes from a message board. The recipe posted here could make a dog extremely ill.

That is for sure! Use the NRC or AAFCO numbers to evaluate whether the recipe is suitable or not. Look for a source of calcium in a recipe meant as a meal first off. No food, dairy or other, is going to have enough for a dog. It must have bone meal, egg shell or some other source of calcium included. That along knocks an awful lot of dog food recipes out of contention.

Dogs can digest nutrients from corn, wheat and oats but any grains need to be in lesser amounts and very well cooked to be digested for it to be a suitable food. I prefer to use meaty treats to grain filled treats. Why feed grains to a dog?

I would never feed bacon to a dog unless it was the only way to get food down her. That is junk food of the highest order!

I had considered fried bacon but I wasn't sure if if was good for them. What type of bacon do you use?
