“With this type of diet, it is common to feed a dog 1 cup of food for every 10 pounds. But, I would also recommend talking to your vet to get a better answer on the exact amount to feed your dog!I hope this helps.” – From Z

“A little over two years ago, my small miniature poodle was diagnosed with the beginning stages of kidney disease. I showed my veterinarian the recipe you make and asked if I could try this for Buffy. He gave me the go ahead. Well here we are better then two years later, the kidney disease has not progressed at all. Did I mention that Buffy is almost 18? I usually make two batches at once. One of the ground beef and one of ground chicken or turkey. I portion it out into 1 cup containers and freeze it. She is one happy little girl and I am one very happy pet owner. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.” – From Sandi

“I have sometimes cooked from scratch for our dogs over the years, and this has motivated me to do so again. This looks even better than the bags of FreshPet I often buy. But I have a question that has nothing to do with the recipe.” – From Laurel

“I just started using your recipe for my 2 small dogs. They absolutely love it! They both have very sensitive stomachs and have frequent diarrhea. The first week I used white rice and they seemed OK.” – From Gina

“My dog loved this! I made very few changes. Instead of mixed veggies I used a couple of carrots that I grated and a half a bag of frozen french cut green beans that I minced. I used 1/2 tsp garlic powder and added 1 tbsp milk. I boiled everything together uncovered until it nearly all the moisture was out. I also added about 1/2 cup of leftover shredded chicken from our dinner last night! I plan to make this often and change up the ingredients along with adding some bone meal.” – From Missy
