Homemade Dog Food

The best natural food for your pet is fresh and homemade.

1 pound ground beef

2 eggs, hard boiled

4 cups cooked rice

6 slices bread, crumbled

2 teaspoons coconut oil

1 tablespoon bone meal or 9 milligrams calcium or 5 teaspoons eggshell powder**

1 pet vitamin, crushed

2 cloves garlic (optional)

Brown meat and garlic in oil. Stir in other ingredients, add water or broth if too dry.

**Note: Save your eggshells by washing them out immediately after using the eggs. Store in a baggie in the fridge or freezer. When you have a dozen or so, bake the shells for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Place them in a blender and grind to the consistency of fine powder.
