There’s a reason why pets beg at your table—they want real food! Not the kibble manufactured by pet food companies, drained of nutrients. If we are dedicated to preparing healthy meaals for ourselves in the comfort and safety of our own kitchens, shouldn’t we be doing the same for our pets?

Dinner PAWsible is a collection of more than fifty cat and dog food recipes that will teach you how to whip up a fresh, balanced meal for your hungry critters. Written by a veterinarian certified in food therapy and an advocate for pet food safety, these recipes are also based on the National Research Council requirements for dogs and cats.

Recipes for Dogs include:
  • Turkey & Oats
  • Lasagna
  • Beef, Egg & Rice
  • Chicken, Shrimp, and Veggies
  • Salmon & Cabbage
  • And more!

Recipes for cats include:
  • Turkey Meatloaf
  • Turkey & Salmon Hash
  • Steak & Eggs
  • Fish Salad
  • Gumbo
  • And more!

Debunk the myth that pet food companies are the only entities qualified to feed your pets. Instead, beat pet obesity, disease, and sickness by reaching into your pantry or refrigerator, turning on the stove, and starting to cook yourself! Making food at home will also decrease those exorbitant pet food bills.

It’s time to go back to the table. Know exactly what your pet is eating and serve it a variety of real food that it deserves. Be a responsible pet parent by balancing your pet’s diet and pleasing its palate. Cooking for your pet is paws-ible!
