Raw Boneless Turkey & Egg Dog Food Recipe

This easy combination of turkey, organs and eggs is simple to make and formulated to meet AAFCO minimum requirements for adult dogs and puppies. No grains, no synthetic vitamins and minerals.

NOTE: This food meets minimum AAFCO requirements for adult dogs and puppies. 

Ingredients

Makes 11 pounds of raw food. This is roughly a 6-7 day supply for a 50 pound dog. You may need to adjust the daily amount based on your dog’s breed and activity level. 

  • 5 pounds 93% lean ground turkey 
  • 2 pounds chicken heart
  • 1 pound beef liver
  • 6 pastured eggs without shells
  • 8 ounces (3 large stalks) kale
  • 8 ounces (2 stalks) broccoli
  • 8 ounces (4 chopped cups) dandelion greens
  • 12 ounces (2 small clamshell packages) blueberries or mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and cranberries)
  • 6 Tablespoons bone meal (seaweed calcium can be used for adult dogs)
  • 3 Tablespoons ground pumpkin seed powder
  • 2 teaspoons Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon kelp

Directions

If you have a grinder, grind the chicken heart and beef liver. If you don’t have a grinder, chop the liver and heart into small cubes.

Puree the eggs, kale, broccoli, dandelion greens, berries, bone meal, pumpkin seed powder, salt and kelp in a food processor. 

Mix the ground turkey, liver, heart and veggie/berry mix together. 

Place the mixture into smaller containers and place them in your freezer. It’s best to freeze your food in 1-3 day portions.

Improving The Fats

We recommend feeding Safe-Sea daily to help balance your dog’s fatty acids. This will bring the omega-6/omega-3 ratio from 11:1 down to 7:1. 

But don’t add any oil to the recipe directly. To reduce oxidation, you don’t want to expose the oil to oxygen for too long. Instead, give it daily with your dog’s meal.

IMPORTANT

The ingredients in this recipe have been carefully chosen to meet AAFCO minimum nutrition requirements for adult dogs. Don't replace ingredients or vary the amounts too much ... this may unbalance the food. The berries are optional but all other ingredients need to be in the recipe in the listed amounts.
