Melanie Conty’s newest book, The Canine Kitchen: A Guide to Cooking Healthy Meals for Your Dog, is available to download from Amazon.
Growing up, we fed our dogs cans of dog food from the supermarket. “No table scraps!” my mother warned. “People food isn’t good for them.” That’s what we all thought back then.
Until the recalls started, and I decided I would cook for our dogs. No matter how long it took, how much planning, or how expensive it was. Table scraps be damned!
That was five years ago, and my dogs have eaten fresh, home-cooked meals ever since. They get glowing checkups at the vet, they have bright eyes and shiny coats, and they run around like puppies. I’ve even found it’s less expensive to make their food than to buy them premium brands.
It’s quick and easy to cook healthy meals for your dog. All you need are some basic ingredients and a little planning. In this guide, I’ll take you through the steps from start to finish. You’ll wonder why you hadn’t started sooner!
