Tools To Make Homemade Dog Food

dog food new mexicoMaking your own dog food is a great idea. Not only is it super healthy for your dog but it is a lot easier than you might think. As with all things, it will be easier if you have the right tools. If you are interested in making your own dog food, here are some tools that we recommend that will make it easier.

  1. Food Scale: You want to make sure you are giving your dog the right portions. Getting a little food scale to weight out your portions will help ensure your recipe has the right amounts as well as you are feeding the right amounts.
  2. Rice Cooker: Rice is a main ingredient in a lot of homemade dog food. Using a rice cooker is often the easiest way to ensure that you have perfectly cooked rice every time. Plus they turn themselves off so you never have to worry about burning the rice.
  3. Egg Cooker: If you are adding eggs into your homemade dog food, you may want to get an egg cooker. It will give you perfectly cooked eggs every time.

There are a lot of other things you can get to make things easier, like a special set of measuring cups, a ziplock bag holder for holding open your zip lock bag when your are storing your extra dog food, pyrex containers for food storage. But most of this you will likely already have. If you have any questions about what kind of food you should be feeding your dog, talk to your Albuquerque vet to help establish a good meal plan.
