I cook chicken breasts to add a small amount to her kibble dog food.

We give our Chihuahua Mix an egg IF we are having eggs for breakfast (or dinner)! Otherwise she eats Little Ceaser Beef/Chicken bowls!

My dogs know when it is Sunday and remind me around 5pm that it is dinner time and they want their scrambled eggs! Every other day each gets dry with half a Little Caeser’s, some salmon oil and a couple of times a week a tbsp of yogurt.

Their special is left overs that they can have in small portions. We make a rice turkey soup with peas, carrots, string beans and sometimes sweet potatoes. Freeze in small containers. Every now and again bring out and warm up for them.

We only make homemade food for our Furbaby. She eats twice a day and yes we give her purchased dog treats and homemade treats. Easy for us because it’s a habit and we 99% of the time cook for ourselves. We adjust the foods to be safe for our pup.

Occasionally, I make something up that’s healthier for my dog than even the best commercial food on the market. By-products and fillers aren’t nutritious, healthy ingredients.

We feed our 4 cats a premium brand of cat food. Most Senior (19 years old) gets special creamy treats because he had several teeth removed and he cannot deal with most solid foods.
We do have one cat, who thinks the inexpensive cat food from Wal-Mart brand is actually a treat.

Our dogs get home cooked meals! Home made treat cookies too! If I won’t eat it my dogs shouldn’t either

I eat organic so do my Chihuahuas. I combine organic chicken breast diced up often times with slices of organic carrots, sometimes organic green beans cut up and also organic sweet potatoes diced in small pieces. To this I add organic chicken broth and store the mixture in glass jars in the freezer. A batch of their prepared food often lasts at least a month or more. They get a tablespoon or so of this prepared feast added to a small amount of organic kibble twice a day. The three of them love their food and are healthy little dogs! After supper, they go crazy for each gets an organic treat.

Whenever we have any broth or juice left over from cooking, especially from the Instant Pot, I put it in the fridge overnight so the fat hardens. The next day I scrape off the fat and strain the juice into an empty ketchup bottle. Our three Whippets really enjoy a squirt of it on their dinner kibble.

Since being diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease he gets nothing that isn’t on his very restricted diet. He use to get a raw bone every evening and a bully stick. He loved his evening routine and so did we. We are teaching him new games in the evening to take his mind off begging for his bone and chew stick.

With unknown junk in dog food we switched to making our dog food from the same thing we eat

My answer was, “No” because we do not cook special things to feed him. However, we do doctor his food considerably. At 14+ years of age, he has numerous maladies. All meals include a spoonful of canned pumpkin and a cup of dry dog food. His breakfast includes an allergy pill, a couple of different pills to combat dementia, a CDB treat and CDB oil, and a sprinkling of shredded cheddar cheese. After his morning walk, then we give him glucosamine chondroitin and multivitamins. If we eat ice cream, then he gets a cup of Frosty Paws, a whey-based product that resembles ice cream but is better for a dog’s digestive system than ice cream.

Because they are harmful to pets, that’s why not!

Not true. Depends on what you give them.

I make my dog healthy dog treats and birthday treats. I also make her an egg and a small blueberry pancake (no syrup) if I am making it for myself.

My dogs eat a species appropriate raw diet. They get ‘special’ meals every day.

If you love your pet, give them the very best you can and be aware that they could be allergic to some things.
