I recently got into a debate with my brother. With so many recalls over dog and cat food (most recently, a bag of 'Taste of the Wild' dry food for dogs was sent back to the store), has anyone considered home cooking for their pet? My brother suggested I cook some brown rice, plain de-boned chicken in broth, add some potatoes, and mush it all up. In my research, I came across a blog that stated dogs do not digest vegetables and vegetables found in current dog food (wet and dry) have been pre-digested. Does anyone know if this is true? For years I've been buying dog food with vegetables thinking it was good for my dogs. What are your thoughts on this? I like to buy my dogs high quality food (since my older dog is 11) but $4 (CAD) for a tin of can food seems pricey - especially since it would last 3 meals, at most!
