      how you can make your own pet food

      mackerel dinner

      heat 1 tsp. corn oil in a skillet and fry 1 small mackerel until it flakes apart easily. Remove and cool.

      Pour 1/2 c. hot water into the pan and scrape the brown bits into it. Remove the bones from the fish and mix with the juice.

      For dogs, serve in pieces with kibble; for cats, grind with the pan juices.

      fish cookies

      follow the recipe for liver cookies but use instead 3 1/2 oz of mashed and boned mackerel, either canned or freshly cooked.

      beef cookies

      following the recipe for liver cookies, using cooked beef puree instead.

      dog morsels

      2 c. whole wheat flour
      2 tsp. garlic powder
      2 c.

      white flour
      1 c. skim milk powder
      2 eggs
      1/2 c. melted beef or pork drippings (or lard)

      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix ingredients together with enough water to make a stiff dough. Roll out and cut into Christmas shapes.

      Bake on cookie sheet until hard.

      kitty treats

      1 1/2 c. rolled oats
      1/4 c. vegetable oil
      1/2 c.

      1/2 c. tuna oil, chicken or beef bouillon

      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all ingredients into a dough. Dust hands with flour and form small, 1/2-inch-thick, round “biscuits”.

      Set on greased cookie sheet. Bake 30 minutes (or until biscuits are slightly browned).

      Cool 30 minutes before serving.

      budgie brownies

      1 c. cornmeal
      1 tsp. finely ground cuttlebone
      1 c.

      hulled millet
      2 tbsp. liquid honey
      1/4 c. whole wheat flour
      2 eggs
      2 tbsp.

      raw wheat germ
      4 egg yolks
      (for larger birds add 1/2 cup peanuts or coconut)

      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Pat into a greased and floured baking dish.

      Bake for 30 minutes or until firm (if edges start to get too brown, cover with foil).

      Cool and cut into small squares.
