Shizandra's Raw Dog Food Recipe

Jo Zimny


We recently adopted a border collie/Aussie Shepherd mix dog. She comes from an animal shelter and has some health issues that we are trying to correct. It's going to be a challenge to get her well, but we are determined to do it. This is a great recipe and it is Grain Free. Even my vet approved. We supplement it with Blue Buffalo kibble which is a very good dry dog food. It has no wheat or corn in it. This food is edible for dogs and humans, though I prefer to give it to the dog :)

20 Min


No-Cook or Other


2 medium
zucchini rough chopped
2 medium
carrots, rough chop
1/4 c
broccoli/cauliflower/cabbage (these are gassy so go lightly)
1-2 stick
1 medium
handful of spinach or 1 large kale leaf, stem removed
2 medium
sweet apples (gala, fuji, golden delicious etc.)
1/4 c
peas, frozen (thawed) or fresh
1 Tbsp
coconut oil
1 Tbsp
1 Tbsp
bee pollen
1 Tbsp
nutrional yeast
1 Tbsp
kelp powder or 2 nori sheets ground up
1 Tbsp
liquid probiotics
1 Tbsp
aloe vera liquid
6-10 oz
beet juice (optional)
1/2 lb
raw bison, venison or hamburger (ground) and hormone free...that is important

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix everything but the "meat" in a food processor until it's a puree. No lumps or chunks left. Scrape the sides of the process often to make sure it all gets processed.
Dump the puree into a large bowl and add the chopped burger meat and massage it into the green mixture.
I can't say how long this will last because it depends on your dog's feeding requirement. Shizandra is only a year old so we are giving her 1 cup of the green puree meat mixed with 1 cup of the kibble.
She really likes this and eats it willingly. Some days she eats a bit more than others. You can adjust the amount you feed your dog, but keep the left overs and add it to the next meal.
Enjoy doggies!
