Try this healthy homemade dog food recipe for your pups! It’s full of antioxidants, healthy fats and omegas. My frenchies do so well on salmon–it’s definitely become their favorite.

This recipe includes baked salmon, raw shredded veggies, cooked quinoa and pureed pumpkin (lots of fiber). This one’s a variation of the original recipe I’ve posted before. Try it out and let us know what you think!


6 lbs salmon
2 cups quinoa
3 zucchinis
2 yellow squash
4 carrots
4 cans pureed pumpkin
7 oz melted coconut oil (almost a cup)
Any supplement/vitamin you like or recommended by vet

  1. Bake salmon in oven 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
  2. Cook quinoa with water until quinoa soaks up all liquid and fluff with fork. You’ll have over 4 cups of cooked quinoa.
  3. Shred all veggies with grater.
  4. Mix all ingredients together!

I feed Weston (22 lbs) about a cup of food per meal, breakfast and dinner. Fira (14 lbs) gets around 3/4 cup per meal. I store all the food in quart size ziploc bags and freeze them. They’re easy to thaw (usually transfer a couple in the fridge the night before) and easy to portion. This recipe should last about 2-3 weeks!
