Recipe: Homemade Dog Food for Small Breeds

homemade dog food for small breeds

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

On the contrary, feeding a diet that offers too much fiber can cause gastrointestinal issues. For this reason, this food should not be the only recipe you feed your pet. You can interchange it with other homemade recipes or serve it once in a while to help keep Fido’s bowel movements regular.


  • 2 chicken breasts  (diced)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup dog-friendly vegetables (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil


Add the oil to a frying pan over  medium heat. Sauté the chicken in the oil until browned.

Once the chicken has been cooked, add the broth, oats and vegetables to the pan. Simmer the recipe for 10 minutes.

Be sure the recipe is completely cooled before feeding to your pet.
