Homemade Dog Food 2 - A Healthy Stew

This recipe was adapted from an original recipe by Halo, to make it slightly simpler and less expensive.



2 1/2 lb. Whole Chicken with Organs

2 Cups Frozen Peas and Carrots

1/2 Cup Coarsely Chopped Sweet Potato

1/2 Cup Coarsely Chopped Zucchini

1/2 Cup Coarsely Chopped Yellow Squash

1/2 Cup Frozen Green Beans

1/2 Cup Coarsely Chopped Celery

1 Tbsp Dried Rosemary

8 oz. Brown Rice

6 oz. Rolled Oats

11-16 Cups Water


  • Put all of the ingredients in a 10 quart stainless steel stockpot, ensuring that the water covers all the solids. Bring mixture to a boil then turn down to low and simmer for 2 hours.
  • Allow mixture to cool, then de-bone chicken and return meat to the pot. Blend all ingredients into a puree. Use or freeze in individual portions within three days.

Approximate Total Daily Portion

10 lb Dog
1 - 1.5 Cups
11 - 20 lb Dog

For each additional 20 lbs, add 2 cups.

Additional Tips

  • An immersion blender or stick blender works best for pureeing.
  • If you are using a blender or food processor, make sure you puree in batches.
  • Disposable plastic containers work best for freezing. Most come with the volume listed on the bottom.
  • Observe your dog's appetite and check with your vet for accurate feeding amounts.
