“Tired of purchasing canned dog food our two large rescue dogs wouldn't eat, I decided to make pooch-friendly chow that was savory and good for them. I use converted rice, but pasta, bulgur, or quinoa may all be substituted.”

  2. Meanwhile, cook the ground lamb in a large skillet over medium heat until browned, about 10 minutes. Drain, then stir into the rice along with the Monterey Jack cheese until the cheese melts. Cool completely before serving.

Well... I altered this some which I think enhanced the quality of the dog food. Any low fat meat would work here as well as fish such as tilapia. Beef and chicken livers work well too. If you cook a whole chicken in a pressure cooker to soften the bones you can puree that to use in the recipe as well, but no whole bones... or add bonemeal which is preferable anyway. As others mentioned... the sodium content is of concern. The garlic in moderation is Ok but that said... don't add it everytime you make this. Garlic is good for helping to control fleas but at the same time it can cause anemia in our little furry friends. Use brown rice and add vegetables like pumpkin (good source of fiber) carrots, peas, beans, etc. Also, add brewers yeast (not the same as active yeast)!! Oh... use olive oil. And I'm not sure what's up with the thyme... I can't say it's harmful, but until I find out for sure... better omit it. These are dogs afterall... not people!

although the basic recipe is pretty sound, I do agree with the other reviewer that the sodium content might be a bit high. Also, the garlic powder might not be a good idea. While it would be yummy in a human recipe, it's unnecessary--and actually toxic in high amounts for dogs.

Beef buillion can be very high in salt - I would suggest using a low-salt or no salt bullion, or homemade beef broth.
