Slow Cooker Dog Food
Cook this slow cooker dog food for your dogs and I promise you they will love you forever! It was last winter when a friend told me that since feeding their older dog chicken bones she seemed to be less stiff and recovered faster after a long walk.
Needless to say, I was horrified. We don’t give our dogs bones of any sort, we used to until we realised the problems it can cause; bones stuck in teeth or internally.
Then she told me she cooked the bones in the slow cooker for a day, or until they were soft enough to liquidise to a paste. Now that sounded like a brilliant way to use up every last bit of a chicken, so I started freezing any chicken bones that were left over from from dinners.
It’s Really So Easy…
The dogs have a long wait before their slow cooker dog food will be ready, but they know it’ll be worth it.
After twenty hours or so of cooking the bones soften enough to be liquidised into a pate. Be warned though the smell is not for everyone. I have been known to cook it outside as my daughter can’t stand it
Once blended the chicken bones are reduced to a pate like texture. Which sets as it cools.
Old 1 litre ice cream tubs are perfect for freezing this slow cooker dog food in.
One or two spoons is all I mix in with the dogs dry food.
I think this his face says it all! Don’t you?
Not only does this recipe use up parts of a bird that would normally get thrown away, but you know exactly what’s in it. Do you ever make your dogs food from scratch? Would you make this for your dog?
