Before switching your pet to homemade dog food for digestive health, it’s best to ask your veterinarian for advice. They will evaluate your dog to decide if this recipe will provide the balanced nutrition that he needs. They may recommend a slight change in ingredients or the addition of supplements.


  • 2 ½ lb. lean ground beef
  • 15 oz. can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 ½ cups quinoa
  • 1 ½ cups diced carrots
  • 1 ½ cups diced sweet potato
  • ½ cup garden peas
  • 4 cups water


Many owners don’t have the extra time to prepare homemade dog food for their canine companions. Of course there is still a bit of prep work, but using a crock pot makes it possible for even the busiest dog owner to feed their dog a homemade diet.

As with most slow cooker recipes, this one is very simple to make. It takes me about 15 minutes to cut up all of the vegetables for this recipe, and that’s all the work you need to do.

Just add all the ingredients to your slow cooker and stir the dog food occasionally as it cooks. You can cook this recipe for 4 hours on the ‘high’ setting or 7 hours on the ‘low’ setting.

Once the food has cooled completely, stir until all of the ingredients are equally combined and serve it to your pup.
