Homemade Pet Food?

Absolutely!  Making your pet food from scratch is one of the best things you can do.  Even indoor pets feel better when their diet is suited to their digestive tract.  Dr. Karen Becker has written a book called Real Food for Healthy Dogs and Cats.  In it she explains why the common dry foods that we usually choose are not the best option, why grains are not ideal, and why a diet balanced in meat and produce is the best.  I strongly suggest you read this before you begin feeding your pet a raw food diet.

Once you feel that you understand the dietary needs of your housemate, the next question is where to find the ingredients.  Finding a local meat source is ideal since you can visit and ask questions.  Many ranchers are now raising 100% grass fed beef and other animals, so it is worth taking the time to look for it.  If you cannot find a local source, buying online is the next best option.


U.S. Wellness Meats has a page on their site designated for pet food where you will find meat, bones, tendons and organ meats.  They also sell non-GMO produce to add to your pet food as recommended by Dr. Becker.
