The practice of this is becoming very popular since it would seem that none of the store purchased pet food is safe! I gleaned some info from the local newspaper that offers a book & a website for recipes. "Home-Prepared Dog & Cat Diets: The Healthful Alternative" (Blackwell publishing $42.99)by vet Donald R Strombeck & check the site www.petdiets.com. Also the press offers 2 recipies as follows: Poultry meat & potato diet...(Serving size depends on animal's weight & activity level). 1/3 lb poultry meat (raw weight),cooked. 3 cups potato, cooked with skin. 2 tbl spoons canned sardines in tomato sauce. 1 tblsp veg oil. 1/4 salt substitute (potassium chloride). 4 bone meal tablets(10 grain or equivalent). 1 multi vitamin tablet. Mash or chop all ingredients to desired texture for your pet. (Next post second recipie)!
