Healthy Foods to Feed Your Dog

bringing the people behind our food to

life everybody worries about what Doug

shouldn’t eat but nobody ever talks

about what dogs should eat and so we

kind of build up this thing that Oh dogs

shouldn’t eat people food it’s not

people food it’s just food people food

goes on your plate and should stay on

your plate but uh ingredients they’re

just ingredients they’re just food so I

try to always help dogs get a better

share of actual food and my approach for

feeding a dog is to do 50% commercial

food and 50% homemade food with the

commercial food they’re going to get all

those vitamins and minerals and that’s

what keeps dogs of dogsbody from failing

and then the other 50% homemade is can

be almost anything I like to use eggs as

one of my primary sources with a

scrambled egg is quick easy has

everything inside that shell that is

necessary to form a baby chick so it can

do form a lot of powerful things in your

dog’s body and then also that egg shell

is really high in calcium

since calcium is one of those things

that dogs need you can dry them in the

oven powder them up in a food processor

or a blender until it’s a really fine

dust

and that creates an additional source of

calcium to meet a dog’s high calcium

requirement and then then I kind of lick

around the grocery store and I say hey

what else should we add here there’s a

lot of opportunity pork is probably one

  Greenhouse Farming

of the meats that is not served to dogs

as much because there’s a lot of

concentration on beef and chicken and

Turkey but lean cuts of pork are really

good lean cuts of beef beef heart is

really good I particularly like using

things like chicken gizzards and chicken

hearts in dog food because they like it

is chewy it’s meaty they’re really good

sources of protein and there are little

cuts of meat that are secondary to what

we eat and then I kind of go to town

when it comes to the produce aisle and I

like to throw in things like yams

carrots green beans spinach apples plums

our dog Baxter is crazy about plums and

he can smell it from like you know a

block away and then I try to throw in

things like rosemary it’s really high in

act and accent and antibacterial

properties I like turmeric because it

has cancer-fighting properties I throw

in a ton of parsley into the dog’s food

because that’s really high in vitamin K

and it’s really high in cancer-fighting

properties and then pretty much I just

kind of try to do a lot of variety I try

to alternate between a lot of different

foods and that’s one of the great things

about doing that is you can also take

advantage of this is on sale or this is

more available or this is seasonal one

thing about vegetables and fruits the

more fibrous it is the more difficult it

will be for a dog short digestive system

to process that

so they actually need you to either

mechanically do it break it down by

grading it or chopping it really finely

or using a cooking it well to sort of

cooking still it’s very soft things like

carrots and apples are pretty easy for

them to digest but the more harder

fibrous it is the more help that they

need
