Thanks, this is very informative! I prepare my dog´s food, but confess that the base of this is quality dried dog food.
I too save all scraps from trimming meat and chicken (might even throw in a whole boneless breast ´accidentally´ now an then for my Woffer). A vet gave me this recipe which is healthy for dogs;
Use either your low fat beef and poultry trimmings, boiled and cut up into small pieces, or use ground beef. Mix 1 cup boiled ground beef with 4 cups cooked, cool rice and 1 cup cottage cheese. Keep in fridge. When serving Fido, mix a half cup of this mixture with a serving-sized portion of dried dog food. Other alternative meats I make this with are chicken hearts/gizzards.
