We have a very well-behaved golden retriever who's just been in to the vet for her six-month check-up. She's an old girl and the vet said she has been very well behaved all along. However, he did notice a slight problem with her gums. She's been brushing them, but as they become dry they look sore.
So he gave her a topical ointment to help and told us to keep an eye on it and bring her back in in a month if it's not better.
The good news is that it is improving so we're very pleased.
So it's time for a quick blog to show you how to make a dog food that you can make yourself at home.
So why should you make your own dog food?
It saves you money
Firstly, if you've got a dog who is fussy or a special breed like a golden retriever, you don't want to spend an extortionate amount of money on feeding them.
This will also save you money as it will be cheaper than buying the kibbles or treats that come in a tin from the shop.
It saves your dog from bad food
The last reason to make your own dog food is that you can ensure that the food that you are feeding your dog is of the highest quality and safe for your pet.
There are no nasty chemicals added to cheap dog food which can upset your pet.
How to make dog food at home
You'll need a dog food tins for this recipe, but you can easily adapt it for use with tinned food or kibbles as well.
Step 1: Place your ingredients into the tins and mix well
In this case, we are using 4 tins of dog food - so we will need to get 2 x 4 ounce tins for our recipe.
If you use a different sized tin for this recipe, just make sure that it is large enough to hold the ingredients and mix well.
Step 2: Make sure the lid of the tin is completely sealed
Next, we need to make sure that the lids are sealed up to ensure that no oxygen gets in.
It is very important to do this because you don't want to end up with some of the ingredients going rancid before you've even opened the tins.
You can also just cover the tin with tin foil.
Step 3: Set your oven to the 'warm' setting
Put the tins in the oven and turn the oven onto its warm setting.
Step 4: Make sure your dog food mixture is nice and hot
Make sure that the tin mixture is nice and hot as this will help to help it mix easily.
Step 5: Stir your dog food mixture until you have a good consistency
To ensure that your dog food is of a good consistency, you need to stir your mixture until it is nice and smooth.
Step 6: Check the consistency of your dog food mixture
To check the consistency of your dog food, you should be able to put a spoon in and have it easily come out without any of it sticking to the spoon.
Step 7: Add your flavourings and extras
Now is the time to add your flavourings and extras into your dog food.
In this recipe, we are using rosemary and garlic, but you can use whichever ingredients you like.
Step 8: Check the consistency of your dog food mixture
Once you've added your flavours and extras to the dog food, it's time to check the consistency again.
Step 9: Store your dog food
At this point, you should be ready to store your dog food mixture.
This is where you need to be careful.
We want to keep the temperature of our dog food at a steady 80 degrees, but you may want to check the temperature with a thermometer.
If it's hotter than 80 degrees, you can put the dog food into the fridge until it cools down.
If it's colder than 80 degrees, then you can put it into the freezer.
Remember that you need to be careful that you don't freeze the dog food too quickly as it might split when you take it out of the freezer.
Step 10: Serve your dog food
So now that your dog food is ready to go, it's time to serve it to your dog.
You can either serve it from the dog food tins or from a bowl.
If you serve it from a bowl, make sure that you put a good layer of dog food over the top as this is a very absorbent surface.
If your dog eats this type of food, you will notice that it is usually very sticky to your fingers.
This is not a bad thing as it will give your dog the extra vitamins it needs.
So there you have it - this is a quick dog food recipe you can make at home for just a few dollars.

My family loves chicken legs. They are cheap, nutritious and super easy to cook and they don't have any of the nasty chemicals that you get in tinned food. They are also very versatile, meaning that they are a great food for all members of the family.
So I'm going to share with you two recipes for chicken legs in my first blog post today. The first one is a quick chicken leg recipe that you can make in the microwave. It's an amazing way to quickly cook chicken for the whole family and it doesn't even require you to boil the chicken.
The second recipe is a quick chicken leg and potato recipe that I also made using my microwave. I actually made this recipe at my son's party when he was a little boy.
So first things first, I'm going to share with you how I cook chicken legs for my family using my microwave.
