how to prepare a home made diet for a dog

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

FISH fillet may be weighted fresh or frozen, not battered. Preferably not to be given raw. The only way to avoid the risk of infestation by parasits and bacterial contamination is 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 Red 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 mixt diet with meat/fish with no added mineral and vitamin mix is unbalanced and deficient, and induce long-term diseases. Vit'i5 Red brings calcium, 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.


ZUCCHINI are especially poor in oxalic acid and low calorie, so if the amount appears too high, replace by PUMPKIN or Buttenut, or equivalent
instead, with half the indicated amount of ZUCCHINI, OR start with half the amount of ZUCCHINI indicated in the recipe, and increase if the
appetite is not fully satisfied. Add a few pinches of SALT if no ingredients of the recipe is canned.

Dry food

Weight the daily amount once a day, and split the distribution in several meals. Keep the container in a dry and cool place. The bag, once opened must be consumed within 4 weeks to avoid oxydation of the kibbles.

Wet food

CANNED/COMPLETE WET FOOD Brand/Product: weight the daily amount once a day, and split the distribution in several meals. Throw away the food not consumed after 2 hours in a bowl. Keep an opened container refrigerated. Add a spoon of warm water to the meal to warm it up at
each meal delivered. A container must be consumed within 24 hours after opening. Adjust the size of the container bought to the daily amount of food consumed by your pet.

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.
