Slow Cooker Dog Chow


Hey Friends! Yes, you read that right. This is dog food. I made it myself and have been making it for awhile now. Had you told me years ago I would be making homemade dog food I would have slapped you into the middle of next week. I had never considered myself a dog person. EVER. But we found ourselves with a daughter who suffers from sometimes crippling anxiety. Our doctor suggested a companion pet. I may not have been a dog person but I was a 100 percent Mamma and if  anything can improve your child's situation its a GO! So the search began. After much research, and lots a blood sweat prayers and tears, we finally found Kiki! Kiki's parents are both papered purebred. One parent is a pure Havanese and one is a purebred Maltese. Shes a Havamalt.  Kiki is 9lbs of zummie energy, white curly haired puppy baby and I absolutely adore her. We all do! And strangely enough she seems to love all of us too. Kiki is amazing with our littles too. She is a dream and I am not quite sure how we got so lucky but we did and we LOVE this dog. Recently, Kiki seemed to stop eating her Kibble. This concerned us, so we tried canned wet food. She loved it, but it wasn't ideal because yes, she was eating but it was pricey and forgive the TMI but it gave her awful (and I mean AWFUL) gas. Time to find a solution. I make my own. This batch will make 26, 1/2 Cup servings, and I only give her one serving a day. She still has her dry food available all day. We are still trying to find a better dry food option for her, but for now this is working well. We just put a 1/2 C servings in sandwich bags and keep the extras in the freezer. We will pull one out from the freezer when we feed her so it can thaw in time for the next feeding. She loves the homemade food! Something I really love is that this is all real food and ingredients I can pronounce etc. Its made in the slow cooker and its super easy to dump in and forget it. Plus it is must more cost effective and less pricy than the canned stuff. l Its a win win in my book! 


  
(PS our daughter is actually doing much better currently thanks to our pup and therapy etc)
