What & what not to feed your dog
Our home made dog food contains no corn, no soy, and nothing you cannot pronounce!
Our recipe for what we put into RedTeddy Really Good Raw dog and puppy food changes depending on what is available.
On the left is a snapshot of what we put into a batch: We start with about 15 pounds of beef, venison in season, turkey and/or antibiotic and hormone free, free running chicken per 6 pounds of mixed fruits and veggies including carrots, broccoli, kale & other greens; legumes (here we include peas and navy beans), beef liver or chicken liver, squash and seaweed calcium, fish oil, as well as NuVet powdered canine vitamin.
Left, the photo copied recipe is from a veterinary student text book created by Hills (Hills Science Diet) for a dog food recipe that meets AAFCO nutrient profiles for all life stages using easily accessible ingredients! The authors of the book "Feed Your Pet Right," the source for the recipe both stipulate that the tricks to creating a healthy home made diet are
Balance, Variety and Moderation!
Concerned about making it yourself?
Kudos to The Farmer's Dog dog food maker for putting an easy to follow dog food recipe that they stand behind right on their website!

We now include NuVet vitamins in our puppy packets.
We require the ongoing use of a high quality canine vitamin, for our puppy health guarantee to be in effect.
We recommend NuVet because they source locally and use human food grade ingredients and of course, they have done and continue to do the appropriate research to stay up with new science on canine health. Check out any other canine vitamins and please let us know what you find.
NuVet vitamins are organic, locally sourced, scientifically based, and we use them on all our dogs.
