This healthy home cooked meal for dogs can be catered to your dog’s preferences. For example, you could use ground beef instead of turkey. You could even use venison, ostrich or any other protein source that is available in your region.


  • 3 lbs. ground turkey
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 squash, chopped
  • 1 large apple, cored and chopped
  • 1 tbsp. calcium powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin


Cook the quinoa according to the instructions on the packaging. Brown the ground turkey over medium heat in the olive oil. Mix the cooked quinoa and browned turkey in a large bowl with all of the other ingredients.

The heat from the quinoa and turkey will soften the vegetables. Slightly. If your dog won’t eat raw veggies or has dental issues and would prefer softer vegetables, you can steam them before mixing into the recipe.
