Try this homemade meatloaf and it will surely be a hit. You’ll definitely add it to your homemade dog food cookbook!
I bet you never thought about how many vitamins and minerals are in the foods we eat and how important each is in providing us with our daily requirements to sustain life. Dogs need these too, and most commercial foods lack in each and every one.
Rotation is key when feeding homemade. It is important to change proteins within a few days, if not daily, to provide different fatty acids, vitamins and amino acids for a complete and nutritionally balanced diet. For more information on the importance of rotation you can read this article by The Honest Kitchen.

This recipe, much like my others, for my two dogs will last about two weeks. This is why I cook an entire months worth of food and I always cook two different meals with different proteins. That way they eat a variety of different food and within a few days all their nutritional needs will be met by each recipe. I try to give them one protein in the morning and another at night.
