How to make homemade cat and dog food.

Today on my YouTube Channel and I share a twist on the Cook with Me theme; How to make your own homemade cat and dog food. Due to fussy cats and a sensitive dog I’ve recently started to batch cook my pets food myself. I’ll preface this by saying I do complement my homemade food with store-bought dry food and some snacks and treats for my dog.

Homemade cat and dog food is easy to make!

Watch my video to see how easy it is to make your own homemade cat and dog food… ps… its good enough to eat yourself!

What am I batch cooking this week?

So this week you’ll see me cook up:

  • 5x 500g packets of Chicken strips
  • 400ml of Rice
  • 5x Carrots
  • 1x Parsnips
  • 300g of Green Beans

Everything is boiled – making this very easy to do!

The chicken is covered with water, 1 inch above the chicken, brought to the boil and then boiled on high for 10 minutes. Then cover with a lid, turn off the heat and let sit for a further 10 minutes. Once cooled they are chopped into bite-sized pieces.

The rice is covered in water, 1 inch above the rice, brought to the boil, simmered on low for 10 minutes. Then cover with a lid, turn off the heat and let sit for a further 20 minutes.

Carrots & Parsnips are peeled and chopped into bite size pieces, covered in water – 1 inch above, brought to the boil and boiled for 8-10 minutes.

Green Beans are covered in water, again 1 inch above, brought to the boil and boiled on high for 8 minutes. Once cooled they are chopped into bite-sized pieces.

For my Dog:

I mix her chicken, rice and vegetable in a large bowl and then divide into two large lunch boxes; storing one in the fridge and freezing the second for later in the week/ another week.

For my Cats:

I divide their bite-sized chicken between two large lunch boxes; storing one in the fridge and freezing the second for later in the week/ another week.

As you can see and read, its super simple and really doesn’t take that much time at all.
