Cooking For Your Dog

During the melamine scare a few years ago we moved to a new dog food – one that was made in Canada and seemed to say all the right things and have all the best ingredients – until of course, Reub started getting sick which in turn spawned a whole new round of vet visits etc.. To make a long story short Dave did a bunch of research and found this amazing web site that told him exactly how much of everything to make and in what proportions so that we could make sure Reub was getting the right nutrients. Dave ended up having to wade through a lot of bad advice before hitting this site and these are the recipes we use for lucky ol’ Reuben.

There is no question that this is quite a bit of work but Reub at ten has never looked healthier or been more lively. Lucky boy! Check out

  1. Thank you for this! I buy the spendy “good” stuff for our dog, and he eats some of our table food, but I’ve been thinking for a long time that I want to make his food. Thanks for posting these recipes. – alison

    • Hey Alison, No problem. There is a fee for this but the recipes are great and the site allows you to customize the recipes to suit your dog’s tastes, size, requirements etc… Dave found a lot of sites that offered free recipes but nothing that seemed very scientifically sound — like how much protein versus veggies etc…Anyways, Reuben is a new man – and on top of that he doesn’t seem to need the super expensive medication we had him on for aches and pains — which we’re now beginning to think was a big ol’ stomach ache!
