  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a large roasting pan with oil and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, 3 stalks of celery, grated carrots, apple, eggs, bread, oats, wheat germ and tomato paste using your hands. Divide the meat mixture into four equal parts and make loaf shapes. Place the loaves in the roasting pan. Surround them with the potatoes, remaining carrots and remaining celery. Cover the pan with a lid.
  3. Bake for 80 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the meat is cooked through. The internal temperature should be 175 degrees F (80 degrees C) when taken with a meat thermometer. Allow to cool.
  4. Portion the food into containers with one loaf and one quarter of the vegetables in each one. Refrigerate. To serve, give your dog 1/3 of a container with each portion of kibble.

My dog really loves this. I started cooking all his food, except for the kibble. I feel a lot better about what kind of care he is getting now. The changes I made to the recipe were to use 1/...

I have made this recipe for years as my old dog got quite fussy before the end. She couldn't smell her food anymore so the addition of garlic helped and she just had to have her tomatoes or tom...

I think this is a great recipe although I would prefer something not as time consuming, and I have no problem adding a slice of white bread - it's not that bad considering the other ingredients;...
