Day 11 – Oats

I added oats to my dog’s food today.  I used some organic chicken broth instead of water and cooked the oats for about 5 minutes.  They loved them!

I was looking up the benefits of adding oats to a dog’s food and there are tons of them.  I mean, more than I can even mention.  I found a terrific article from Dog’s Naturally Magazine that has 2 parts.  You can read it here.  Long story short, it’s a terrific way to add carbs to a meal without using a grain.  It has benefits for skin, all sorts of organs, nerves.  The list just goes on and on.  It is not something I would normally add to kibble, but if you decide to make a meal for your dog from scratch, it is a great addition.

Have you ever thought about making your own dog food?  Have you researched it any?  What have you found?  I would love to hear what you found.
