Relatively easy recipe to make dog food. My dog has severe allergies, and he became intolerant to even the priciest prescription diet dog food. You can use other protein and starch sources, but the rule is 40% protein, 50% veggies, and 10% starch.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place sweet potatoes in a large Dutch oven filled 3/4-full with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes. Add chuck roast and bison to the pot and cook until meat is no longer pink, 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Add carrots, peas, green beans, and spinach to the pot and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes. Add oats and stir until mixture has thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in pumpkin and olive oil; remove from heat and let cool a bit, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer roast to a plate and dice meat; return to mixture.

  • Use a potato masher to mash up mixture to a mushy consistency. Let mixture cool sufficiently, about 30 minutes. Place into resealable containers and freeze.

Cook's Notes:

You can use any 10 canned vegetables that you'd like.

I feed my 65 pound Goldendoodle 4 to 5 cups daily. He likes it and I'm hopeful it reduces his severe allergies.
