Homemade Dog Food: How to Make Shepherd's Pie

Who wouldn't love fluffy mashed potatoes crowning rich ground beef smothered in gravy? In the classic Shepherd's pie a layer of corn is included as well. However, even though corn is a major ingredient in many budget dog kibble foods, some dogs have trouble digesting it. This recipe substitutes carrots for the corn.


1 pound ground beef
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup mashed potatoes (no peels)
1 cup shredded carrots

Cook one pound of lean ground beef. Add in one cup of water mixed with one tablespoon of flour. Heat until the mixture thickens. Add one cup of mashed potatoes and one cup of shredded carrots. Heat through until the carrots are cooked.

Your dog will love it!
