    I make my own based on a raw food BARF recipe - it's not cheaper than commercial dog food but its a lot better for them! You can also buy it pre made from selected shops

    Dog food recipe

    Ingredients:

    1kg vegetables (carrots, celery, spinach, cauli, broccoli etc), roughly chopped
    1kg lean meat or mince (beef, chicken, lamb, kangaroo etc).
    1/4kg liver or similar amount of other offal), roughly chopped
    small tub plain, low fat yogurt
    2 free range eggs
    2 cloves garlic
    1.5 tsp flax seed oil
    1/2 tspn of vitamin B powder
    Up to 2 tspns kelp powder
    Any other healthy food scraps eg small amounts of cooked veggies, rice, pasta cottage cheese etc.

    Method:

    Chop veggies, garlic and offal in food processor until it looks like fine coleslaw. Veggie mix should be well chopped, fine enough to make into patties, but not mush.

    Add mince and all other ingredients and mix until well combined.

    Shape into patties and freeze or freeze in serving size portions in plastic bags. Thaw as required.

    We made exactly what NAT256 does...excpet that we would cook the vegies, pasta, lentils etc, & then once cooled we'd stir it through the raw kangaroo mince. Then freeze in take away containers. "Fit as a fiddle" our vet used to say about our big boxer boy!

    I feed my dog Vets All Natural with kangaroo mince. It's like a pre made muesli you mix with water and you add fresh meat. I buy it in bulk and a 15kg bag lasts for ages.

    He is a 35kg English bulldog puppy (just turned 1) and eats 800g fresh meat per day. I buy his meat in bulk from the butcher in 20kg lots and its about $30.

    Processed food would probably be cheaper but this is so much better for him.
