Thanks to Health Recipes
As a pet owner, no doubt you want to give your dog or cat the best care possible. And caring for your pet means feeding him the best diet you can.

Animals, because they are color blind, choose their foods by smell. Most dogs like gamey flavors best, as well as liver, fat, garlic, onions, horsemeat, lamb, beef, cheese and fish.

Cats enjoy chicken, liver, fish, turkey, lamb, and yeast, and prefer fresh to aged flavors. Remember that cats are fussy eaters and it is not wise to continually feed them their favorite foods. Soon they will refuse to eat anything else; it is your job to see your cat has a balanced diet.

Warning: Do not feed cats onions!

Animals do not need salt added to their diet as the natural salt in the food is enough for them.

Dogs may eat any vegetable they want, but cats should not have any starchy veggies, like peas and corn. Some dogs and cats even enjoy fruits!

It's a good idea to always add a grain, such as Kibble, wheat germ, cooked oatmeal or whole wheat bread to meat dinners. For dogs use 75% carbohydrate foods (grains and vegetables) to 25% meat; for cats use half carbohydrate foods to half meat.

You will find, once you begin making your own pet foods, that it is really relatively simple and you will save some money as well. remember that all pet foods should be served at room temperature; don't serve food cold from the refrigerator nor hot from the stove.

Incidentally, you should know that cats should be fed three times a day, while an adult dog needs only one meal a day.

Here are some pet recipes you can make at home:

Heat 1 teaspoon corn oil in a pan.
Add 1/4 pound beef liver and fry on both sides until cooked but not dry inside.
Add 1/2 cup water to the pan and mix it up with all the brown bits.
For dogs, cut the liver into pieces and serve; for cats, grind the liver in a blender, using the pan juices.

Combine 1 chicken liver, 1 giblet, 1 chicken heart, 1 chicken neck, 2 cups water and 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley.
Cover and simmer until the giblet is tender.
Chop all the meat for dogs removing bones and mix with kibble; for cats, you may want to grind the meat in the blender.

Combine 1/2 pound stewing veal, 1 cup canned tomatoes, 1 cup water, 1 chicken bouillon cube, 1/2 onion (chopped), parsley and a dash of garlic powder in a pot and simmer.
When meat is tender, remove all the bones.
For dogs, cut the meat in chunks, and mix stew with kibble or some other grain; for cats, grind the stew in blender, adding a tablespoon of wheat germ or 1/2 slice of whole wheat bread.

Follow the recipe for Veal Stew, using chunks of lamb instead and leaving out the tomato if desired.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine 1/2 cup dry milk and 1/2 cup wheat germ; drizzle 1 teaspoon honey on top.
Add one 3 1/3 oz. jar of strained liver baby food or homemade blended liver and stir until everything is well mixed.
Form the mixture into balls; place them on an oiled cookie sheet and flatten them with a fork.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes.
Consistency should be fudgy.
Store in a jar in the fridge; freeze if keeping more than a few days.

Follow the recipe for Liver Cookies but use instead 3 1/2 ounces of mashed and boned mackerel, either canned or freshly cooked.

Following the recipe for Liver Cookies, using cooked beef puree instead.

Heat 1 tsp. corn oil in a skillet and fry 1 small mackerel until it flakes apart easily. Remove and cool. Pour 1/2 cup hot water into the pan and scrape the brown bits into it. Remove the bones from the fish and mix with the juice. For dogs, serve in pieces with kibble; for cats, grind with the pan juices.

2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 cups white flour
1 cup skim milk powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup melted beef or pork drippings (or lard)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix ingredients together with enough water to make a stiff dough. Roll out and cut into Christmas shapes. Bake on cookie sheet until hard.

1 cup cornmeal
1 tsp. finely ground cuttlebone
1 cup hulled millet
2 tbsp. liquid honey
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 eggs
2 tbsp. raw wheat germ
4 egg yolks (for larger birds add 1/2 cup peanuts)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Pat into a greased and floured baking dish.
Bake for 30 minutes or until firm (if edges start to get too brown, cover with foil).
Cool and cut into small squares.

Recipes to help dogs gain needed weight
Fat Balls
1 dozen egg yolks
1 lb jar peanut butter
1 small container oats
1 jar wheat germ
1 lb hamburger
1 package cream cheese

Oats can be soaked in milk or cream first. Put all ingredients in a big bowl and mix. Roll into 3-inch balls and put in ziplock bags and freeze until needed. Feed 1-2 a day.

Doggie Dinner Muttloaf
6 pounds ground meat , (such as combination of ground turkey, beef cheek , chicken necks..etc)

3 pounds ground extra lean ground beef *optional*

1 pound heart meat or liver

1 pounds each of two different vegetables (your choice):
dark green leafy vegetable, spinach, collard greens mustard greens, kale, cabbage the darker the better. Fresh green beans, zucchinis

I pound of (your choice):
carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, pumpkin

1 pound of (your choice):
cranberries, blueberries, bananas, apples, papaya

¼ approx. of large container of oatmeal or small star or alphabet cooked

noodles instead of oatmeal for binder

6 eggs with shells *I cook the shells on a 200 oven then grind them with a mortar pestle until finely ground but you just need to grind them, so what ever is convenient for you.*

½ small container ricotta cheese, cottage cheese or plain yogurt

I also add some spices, a bit of Italian seasoning, sweet basil, parsley,garlic for flavoring.

Throw in a canned mackerel or salmon sometimes.

Grind up organ meat with the eggs in food processor or grinder. Grind up vegetable. Stir all your ingredients together. You can freeze before you cook, take out when I need one, thaw and cook. (You can use divvy it up into portions convenient to your needs)
When cooked I take off the foil top, dump the mutt loaf on the foil top and cut into squares to put into a plastic bag to refrigerate.
You can fill up zip lock bags, stick in your freezer for when you need it as well, thaw and put in a regular baking pan if you don't want to use disposable.
Bake 350 degrees till done about an hour and 20 minutes for a square cake pan full. Lesser time for a loaf pan size.
When cooled cut it into squares and put in fridge until needed.
I try to serve their first meal when the muttloaf is still warm because the love it best then and I stick the leftovers in the fridge for another meal.

Also...Help for ticks
If you have some tea tree oil (Walmart & most other stores sell this), put some on a q-tip and touch it to the tick, they do not like tea tree oil....but try not get on the dog as too much tea tree oil is not good for the dog.
