This is a recipe for a very basic homemade dog food meal. This is not a permanent diet; it’s an easy, affordable recipe you can make if your veterinarian requests a simple home-cooked meal, you run out of dog food or your pup isn’t feeling well or isn’t eating his normal dog food. Some dogs cannot handle a drastic change in diet so a great solution is to mix this with your dog’s current food. This could be all he needs to start eating again and will be easier on his stomach.
