Oatmeal makes a good substitute carbohydrate for dogs with wheat and grain allergies. A good source of soluble fiber, oatmeal is beneficial for dogs with digestive issues and aids in regulating blood glucose levels.

I used brocolli, but you could substitute other dog-friendly veggies too. You could even throw in some dog-friendly fruits once in a while to change things up for your pup.


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast (cubed)
  • ⅓ cup chicken liver
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 2 cups broccoli
  • 1 tsp. bone meal
  • 1 cup water


I love sharing the homemade dog food recipes that I create, but I often get comments from readers and viewers who say that they don’t have the time to make homemade meals for their dogs.

With a little bit of water and some of the best healthy ingredients, you can prepare homemade dog food in your slow cooker while you’re busy doing other things.

I’m a mother, a wife and I work full time. I completely understand being too busy to cook, especially for your pets.

I prepare meals for my dogs in advance and freeze them. I can make enough food for a month in just a few hours.

I can easily pull out meals each day to thaw for my pets. If you’d prefer to feed your dog a fresh meal every day, you can make a different dog food recipe for large breeds every few days.

For this slow cooker dog food, all you have to do is add the ingredients to the slow cooker and turn it on. Most slow cookers are programmable, but if yours isn’t you’ll have to keep an eye on the time.

Set your slow cooker on high heat and cook the recipe for 4-6 hours. Once finished, you can easily stir the recipe to combine the ingredients equally.

Once the food has cooled, you can feed it to your pet.
