    When I had a dog I used to make up a Stew with meat, rice and veggies. He loved it.

    I don't believe in 'cooked meat' for dogs.

    They are carnivores. They don't need tinned food etc.. Just dry food and bones.

    I go by dog poo, if its runny and smells its not good.

    I give my dogs left overs like veggies etc but not meat! I really notice difference. Rice is better option over pasta if you choose that path. And always raw over cooked please!!

    See my dog couldn't eat dry food, every time I gave it to him he'd get diorrhea.

    Dogs aren‘t carnivores, that‘s catat. Dogs are actually omnivores, which is why i balanced diet is good for them that includes vegetables, etc. They CAN live on strictly meat, so can humans, but its not good for them.

    So the batch I made today was cooked mince, cooked rice and a bag of frozen vegetables with a bit of gravy over the top.

    Next time should I just do cooked rice and veggies and give him the meat raw ?? I will also mix up the meat so it's not always the same

    It does also get bones

    I do make my own. So much healthier for them. Mixed veggies, meat off cuts from butcher and rice or pasta. I do it every 2 weeks and put in zip lock bags in the freezer and just take one out each morning :-) I also crack and egg over her dinner once or twice a week cause its really good for their coat
