Substituting Ingredients in Homemade Dog Food

by | Homemade Dog Food | 0 comments

Occasionally when making homemade food for our dogs, we will replace one ingredient with another, but never to the detriment of our dogs’ nutrition.

For example, when making one of our standard recipes, we regularly replace cabbage with kale, leafy greens or cavolo nero (also known as black kale or black cabbage), depending on the season and availability.

In that regard, we make homemade food for our dogs in a similar way to which we all cook for our families. A lot depends on what we have to hand and the time.

Do your best. Try to vary ingredients as much as possible without becoming a slave to the issue. Always remember, making homemade food for your dog should be fun!
