Share Meals with Your Dog --The New Trend in Feeding Your Dog

If you're thinking of making your own dog food, check out the recently released book written by chef, Gayle Pruitt entitled "Dog-Gone Good Cuisine: More Healthy, Fast and Easy Recipes for You and Your Pooch." In her book are over 100 recipes for both you and your pet. Some of the ingredients used in the recipes are kale, lasagna, salmon and curried beef.

Not only are pet owners  preparing homemade food for their pets with the same ingredients that they eat themselves but many pet food manufacturers are preparing gourmet food for dogs and cats.

According to a segment of Good Morning America by Joanna Prisco, many pet foods for sale in pet stores today, advertise "human grade" ingredients. Some of the "grain free" dog food varieties, such as Blue Wilderness, Innova Nature's Table, Nature's Recipe manufacture the dog food with chicken, duck, bison, salmon, venison or turkey in combination with berries, sweet potatoes, peas and other natural ingredients.

Kari Liu, senior scientist in formulation and diet design of Innova Nature's Table stated that, “Each ingredient found in Nature’s Table recipes serves a specific purpose, like high-quality animal proteins for lean muscle mass, omega fatty acids for a shiny coat, healthy carbohydrates like lentils and peas for sustained energy, and nourishing antioxidants like vitamin E to help promote a healthy immune system.”
