Different Types of Dog Food
While there are many different kinds of dog food available, it can be hard to choose. Depending on what you’re looking for for your animal and what they like to eat, some types might be good for one dog but not for another. You can try out different kinds of dog food like dry food, wet food, or even homemade food for your pup. Dry kibbles are most popular and convenient for most people. But if you’re curious about the specific needs of your specific dog, reach out to your veterinarian to learn more.
To make up the base of your dog’s diet, Tacoma Boys has options like Portland Pet Food Company Beef N’ Rice or Honest Kitchen Turkey & Salmon Bone Broth. If you’re interested in making your own dog food with bone broth and other fresh ingredients, check out this recipe which includes sweet potato, carrots, and chicken. Other people may make their own dog food with ground turkey, eggs, rice, and more. You can also use these foods to supplement traditional dog food.
Pet Food Recipes
While most people are likely to pick up their dog’s regular food at grocery stores, it can be fun to make pet food recipes as a treat now and again. A quick web search brings up tons of different homemade dog treats to bake or otherwise prepare for your pup. Baked homemade dog treats like these biscuits with peanut butter by the Recipe Critic are common and easy to make. But if you’re looking for different types of pet food recipes to try, pup-friendly frozen popsicles can be lots of fun!
Peanut Butter “Pupsicles” Recipe
Whip up these easy frozen treats for your pup when it starts to get a bit warmer through spring and summer: They’re sure to appreciate the cool bite!
- 1 cup Zoi Plain Greek Yogurt
- ½ cup Wild Friends Creamy Peanut Butter (be sure to not use peanut butter containing xylitol sweetener as it is poisonous to pups!)
- ½ cup mixed berries such as blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries
- Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well to combine.
- Pour the mixture into an ice cube tray (or a paw print silicone mold for an extra fun touch!).
- Transfer to the freezer and freeze for about 4 hours or until frozen solid.
- Pop out each individual “pupsicle” as needed as a treat for your pup.
These treats are fun because they involve some ingredients that might not be common in dog treats, but that most dogs sure love! A few other examples of food and treats you can feed your dog for extra nutrients and variety in their diet includes:
