Northtowns Pet Blog:  Crafting Your Own Canine Cuisine
    With the expense of good dog chow these days, it's tempting to try to make your own. Somehow, the process seems complicated if you look up guidelines and recipes online or in books. But it's really very simple to create your own canine cuisine.

First, check with your vet about any supplements you should include. Then, start with a balanced mix of meat, vegetables, fruit such as blueberries and apples, and then make about a third as much in whole grain rice. You can use frozen vegetables and fruit and even rice comes cooked in the frozen section of many groceries. You'll find out quickly what your dog's tastes are and can tell by weighing him weekly if you need to adjust your recipe.
