  1. This is great stuff!

  3. thanx

  4. im been using this recipe and WOW…its working out great …thank you

  5. Corn oil has been selected in this recipe as a source of linoleic acid (LA), which is an essential fatty acid for both dogs & humans. Dogs have a higher requirement for LA than humans, and it is need to maintain normal skin and coat health. Other vegetable oils (such as canola oil) can also be used to provided LA; however, corn oil has the highest concentration of LA acid. So, by using corn oil less oil is needed to meet the LA requirement, helping to keep the toal fat level of the diet low.

  9. Is there a larger recipe for this? I have an alaskan malamute and I would have to make this twice a day

  10. Actually kibble isn’t all too great on a dog’s teeth. With the tendency to crumble with one bite, dogs not chewing their food thoroughly, and the starch (and sugar depending on the food)-it just isn’t ideal for teeth-gum health, maybe. Also, don’t forget that real food has vitamins and nutrients in it-the key, which is the same for people, is to have a properly balanced diet. If your doctor told you that you needed more processed foods in your diet-would you take them seriously?

  11. Talk about spoiling your pets lol. I would hate to spend the time to make food for my dog

  12. Wow, thank you 🙂

  13. I would definitely make my own pet food at home. I dont trust Artemis pet food, a so-called holistic pet food. They are repackaged Costco’s Kirkland brand pet food, and sold as holistic food.

  14. this look like something my dog would eat, but the vet says we have to feed him iams
