You will find, once you begin making your own pet foods, that it is really relatively simple and you will save some money as well. Remember that all pet foods should be served at room temperature; don't serve food cold from refrigerator nor hot from stove.
Homemade pet food should take a ridiculously small amount of your time. As a general guide meats should be raw and vegetables must be finely chopped in a food processor or by a hand grater.
When it comes time for feeding, it is important that you let your dogs and cats eat as much as they want at time of feeding. Once their body becomes nutritionally satiated, they will cut their food intake, sometimes by half amount, and go on a maintenance diet. Incidentally, you should know that cats should be fed three times a day, while an adult dog needs only one meal a day.
To get started, find a good book with pet food recipes and use it to start preparing simple meals. You can also get free recipes from many websites online. If preparing your own pet food is not an option for you visit website below for some healthy pet food: http://www.pet-care-supplies.co.uk/food/
