  • I have, I don't do it often but if we happen to have meat that is expiring and we realize we wont be cooking it and its to late to freeze I cook it up for my dog. I cook rice, green beans and add some chicken broth to it with what ever meat I have. He LOVES it. I also did this for him when he was a puppy. I got him from a shady rescue and he was very sick, almost died on me and was very under weight. The vet suggested I cook the mixture for him and mix it with his puppy food.
    Would I buy it pre-made? No, it's always over priced there are small businesses that I have seen who offer it and they charge an arm and a leg for something that I can do for under 10 and make more of it at once.

  • My cat won't eat anything but catfood. I have tried to feed him different things and he refuses them all. Except cantaloupe. He will each a dozen of those a day...LMAO.

  • I wouldnt but it. I do make my dogs homemade dog food mostly because I have one dog who has alot of allergies. Since I know it is not feasable to just cook for her, I make enough for both dogs.

  • He won't even eat canned catfood. He is a weird little beastie.

  • I don't cook for my cats, and depending on the cost I'd consider home made.

  • Sleeping, cantaloupe??? how weird!!! reason I am asking is that daughters partner is making home cooked food for a 2 month old puppy, I wondered if there is a market out there for this.

  • I have done that from time t time. I have made my own dog treats and dog food. I ended up doing dry kibble and on occasion make dog treats.

  • Granny, my daughter has a mixed breed dog with the same problem, the only thing that seems to help is grooming her and keeping her fur very short.

  • ~*Yes*~... considering the issue where China sent American tainted pet food, and human food... "MADE IN AMERICA" is what I look for on labels now!!! Others can risk retardation, poison, and so forth... but I enjoy and love my life!!! And as long as it were made here, packaged here, and sold here... I would buy it
