home cooked recipe for a dog


  • Mix Oil and Vit'i5
  • Add cooked Veggies (Add Salt if the veggies are fresh or frozen and not canned) & mix
  • Add cooked Meat or Fish. This mix can be frozen for days, and then thawed overnight in the fridge before being served.


  • For storage from 24 to 48 hours: The above mixture (Step 1) can be stored in fridge for up to 2 days. If any Carbohydrate such as rice in the recipe, preferably cook fresh on the day of consumption, and mix to the mixture mentioned above, then to serve on the same day. The mixture containing carbohydrate can be kept in fridge for only up to 2 days and must be served.
  • For storage more than 2 days: The above mixture (Step 1) can be divided to daily portion and stored in freezer for longer than 2 days. Simply thaw a portion overnight, and mix that to carbohydrate such as rice/potato that is cooked on the day of feeding. The mixture containing carbohydrate can only be kept in fridge for up to 2 days and must be served.


You can provide the daily required amount of food by dividing into several small meals throughout the day. Suggestion of possible schedule: give 1 or 2 small meal in the morning, 1 at lunchtime and/or once back home, 1 or 2 in the evening). Prior to each feeding, simply add a few spoonful of warm water to each portion, and mix well to warm up each meal. Throw away wet food which has not been consumed within an hour after being offered.

Ingredients information

Meat / Fish

CHICKEN or TURKEY breast, PORK Fillet, VEAL meat, all lean muscle, be weighted raw or frozen, with no fat , and boneless, and given slightly cooked. In order to avoid any risk of infestation by parasits and bacterial contamination, it is highly recommended to cook it (boil or steam, to reach 70°C inside for 5 minutes). Freezing suppress the parasitism risk, but not the bacterial risk.


Each Vit'i5 Orange contains a spoon, usable to measure Vit'i5 powder but also to measure the oil amount. If your animal has never consummed Vit'i5, start with a tiny amount each day, mixed with meat or fish, or even yogurt. Once accepted, increase progressively to the recommended amount. A home-made diet with no mineral and vitamin mix is unbalanced and deficient, and induce long term diseases. Vit'i5 Orange brings calcium, phosphorus, trace-elements and vitamins, all essentials to the animal EVERY DAY along with meat of fish, even with dairy in the diet. Each jar contains a spoon : a 5 ml spoon (which contains about 4 grams of powder) in 250g jars, a 10 ml spoon (which contains about 8 grams of powder) in the 600g jar.


Rapeseed/Canola oil is rich in essential fatty acids omega 6 and omega 3 (olive oil contains almost none, sunflower and corn oil contain no omega 3), but must be neither cooked nor heated.It has to be mixed raw to the diet. Maintain the bottle in the fridge, protected from heat and light. Soybean oil can be used instead of rapeseed/Canola oil. Each day, a tenth of rapeseed/Canola oil may be be substituted by fish oil, in order to bring very long chain omega 3 fatty acids such as EPA and DHA. In that case, choose preferably caps or airless container to avoid oxidation of fish oil. Avoid cod liver oil, as it is also extremely rich in vitamins A and D, also essentials, but toxic when ingested in excess.


PUMPKIN is given peeled. VEGGIES listed can be given mixed, or one at a time. VEGGIES can be cooked in water or steamed, until easily mashed (cooked longer than for humans). Add a few pinches of SALT if no ingredients of the recipe is canned.


RICE has to be cooked in water twice the duration of time for humans (not al dente!). Weight dry. Once cooked, strain but rincing is useless. Cook preferably on the day of consumption.DO NOT FREEZE/THAW cooked carbohydrates, that would impair severely their digestibility and may lead to diarrhea. If well tolerated, it is possible to substitute, at egual dry weight and cook similarely, white Rice, Pasta, Couscous, and Oat Flakes one by the other. The latest may be cooked for a few minutes in water in the micro-waves oven until texture becomes smooth.

Dairy and treats

To make sure of the amount provided, the amount of CHEESE shall be scaled weight (the weight of a 1/8th of a 250g camembert is about 30g).


Follow up and Nutritional advice

If the transition to the new diet is not successful, if the daily amount of food is not fully consumed, or if the behavior of your animal appears strange, please consult your veterinarian with no delay.
If you give this diet for a long period of time (months, years), we kindly ask you:

  • De peser votre animal une fois par mois, et ajuster la quantité d'aliment en conséquence (+ s'il maigrit, - s'il grossit), ou de contacter votre vétérinaire.
  • To weight your pet once a month, and adjust the amount of food consequently (give more if the body weight decreases, give less if the body weight increases), or consult your vet.
  • To weight the food and ingredients, to avoid errors that can impair body weight (by the energy provided) and long-term health (by the balance of the complete diet). If you change one or several ingredients, the recipe must be recalculated considering the new ingredients as different ingredients may not have the same nutritional proporties, even if they look similar.
  • To not forget that, if the condition of your pet changes (neutering, activity, reproduction, disease...), it is necessary to recalculate the recipe, as the amount and proportions of each ingredient may need to be modified.

If you have several pets, recipes created for one animal are adapted to its own characteristics). Except if all characteristics are similar, in general, even if several animals live in the same household, their nutrition requirements are different and it is less risky to ask for a recipe for each.
Substitution of ingrédients: even if ingredients or foods may seem similar or close, avoid substitution without control. It is highly preferable to ask for a recipe including new ingredients, in order to adjust the amounts and balance.
