The Weston No.8 575 Watt heavy duty meat grinder

This is s little investment to make that will pay off over time with convenience and effectiveness – I can tell you that.
It costs about $85-90, but is worth everyone of it. It grinds your 30 lbs of meat in no time and is good to make your own ground beef for hamburgers or meatloaf. I LOVE THIS THING!

Side note: As many efforts as I put into my recipes and as thorough my research may be, that still does not make me a nutrition expert. And I do not claim to be one. All of my advice is, of course just that – my personal advice – I do not give guarantees for anything.
In cases of doubt, please, always do your own research or double check with your vet!

  1. This is lovely! Right this can be consider as high quality food for our dogs, Homemade recipes for our dog foods are better than choosing some dog food brands.. Just saying.

    • In this recipe the only ingredient that is chicken are the innards (chicken hearts). That’s the 10lb. ADDING to it: The 30lb meats, which is ground beef. Of course you can substitute as you wish.

      “Meats and Organs
      • 30-31 lb Bottom flat meat (makes for 50% of the batch, 0 calcium) If you get lean pieces, you do not need to trim the fat
      • 10-11 lb chicken hearts and beef liver (makes for 15-17% of the batch, almost no calcium)
      (every now and then you should replace the liver by another organ in order to avoid overdosing of vitamin A. Also if your dog does not tolerate chicken, of course you should substitute the chicken hearts. A very valuable substitution for dogs is green tripe for example.)”

      If the dog needs to get some more calories, I recommend to choose meat with a higher fat content and not trimming the fat.
      I hope this answers your question.

  2. Amazing blog.Thank you so much for sharing very easy homemade raw dog food recipe. It is a smashing one of a kind guide for discovering healthy recipes for dog food minus a headache. Thanks again.

  3. I have pomeranian boy. I know that grain are mixed into the dog foods to make the production cost cheaper. But unlike humans, dogs don’t have the molar teeth necessary to grind up the grains. This may lead to unproper digestion. Your recipe is grain free. thank you for recipe.
