Enjoy cooking for your dog! Lilly’s favorite recipes.
Dinnertime! Let your dog benefit from small amounts of fruits and vegetables, providing vital nutrients and fiber to help you and you dogs to stay healthy and happy. Home made food should not replace your dogs daily food and never put your dog on a home made diet. Reward your Fido, on special days or if you feel like cooking for your dog. Your dog should be always on balanced nutrients and make sure that your dog is healthy, doesn’t have specific health conditions and gets his daily calorie intake.
Some fruits and vegetables, in certain doses and circumstances, can be extremely harmful to pets, ask your veterinarian before cooking. Be careful with all cabbage sorts, onions, garlic, chives, avocado, grapes, raisins, and macadamia nuts can all cause illness when eaten by dogs. Also raw food may lead to Salmonella poisoning. Garlic, onions and some sort of cabbages can cause gastrointestinal upset. Adjust amounts based on your dog’s constitution and do not add more than 20% of fruits and vegetables.
Here are the favorites of my dogs: carrots, bananas, sweet potatoes, rice, apples, spinach, eggs (cooked), cottage cheese, any kind of high fat cheese (I’m from Turkey, so my dogs love feta cheese:)), olive oil, strawberries, turkey, duck, beef, tuna, fish. No chicken for my dogs, they are both allergic.

Great way to save some time and energy is, to cook big portions and freeze the leftovers (we never have leftovers:).
