Healthy Dog Stew-Comfort food for your Fido!

Tammy Bovender


So, our boys decided they HATE store bought food. We tried so many things and always found they wouldn't eat after a few meals of whatever food we could find in the store for time. We decided to give homemade food a try because they began to lose a lot of weight from not eating. We have found that we really enjoy this bonding time with our pooches. They LOVE their food. It takes a ton of time, we usually set a day away and make large batches of this, but our pups are worth the time. It's fun to watch them drool all day while you make their dinner! Give it a try!

How to Make Healthy Dog Stew-Comfort food for your Fido!


  1. Put bones in a large stock pot and boil in water. (This will make a nice bone broth for your Fido). Boil for 45 minutes -1 hour. Remove the bones, set the broth aside.
  2. Peel the Sweet Potato, then cut into bite size pieces.
  3. Chunk the Chicken Breasts into bite size pieces and toss into a large crock pot.
  4. Drain the beans into a strainer and rinse well with water. (This will reduce the sodium level in the beans), then dump the beans in the crock pot.
  5. Next, dump the rest of your veggies, rice, raw chicken livers and bone broth into the crock pot.
  6. In a skillet, ground the turkey (Turkey is optional), then place the ground turkey into the crock pot.
  7. Cook on high in the crock pot for approximately 8 hours or until the rice is tender.
  8. Once the stew is ready, crack the eggs and stir into mixture. You can crush the egg shells into the mixture for added calcium. I usually rinse the egg shells, bake them and place in a blender to make a powder to add. either way is fine.
  9. Allow the egg to cook for an additional 15 minutes.
  10. Scoop out to set some aside to cool and sit back and watch your pups drool over their much anticipated dinner. This will make multiple servings. We measure out 1 cup and place into zip lock bags and freeze.
