Does your dog ever act uninterested in the food you are giving him? Is your dog excited when it’s time for breakfast or dinner? Well a few years ago we found it was strange that our small 11lb Pomeranian/Papillon/Chihuahua never really seem interested in his dog food. We tried Wet Food and Dry Food and tried most all of the “quality” dog foods. The last time we switched up his food to find something that he might like our dog ended up with a hot spot on his leg. We found all of this strange and wanted to find a solution.
While we weren’t sure of the exact cause of his hot spot we switched up his food and started making our own. We still don’t know exactly what caused his hot spot but we did find out what he likes and what he doesn’t like. When we first started finding out what he liked we would cook up little bits of the different ingredients to find out if he liked them and/or if he had a reaction to them. We did find out that he likes to eat green beans but they make his stomach warm after he eats them.
This recipe uses real food that our dog loves. You can mix up the veggies for whatever your dog prefers but this is the recipe that our dog loves the most. We have even added Salmon, Tillipia and Ground Turkey.
