  1. Combine ingredients

    Boil one whole egg and grind it, with shell on, in a food processor. Combine the egg and shell with 1/4 cup lean meat or organ meat, 2 cups of cooked brown rice and 1/4 cup cooked low-starch vegetables like green beans. Combine all ingredients well in a mixing bowl. If desired, add a liquid vitamin supplement.

  2. Make patties

    To make them easy to store, form small patties of the dog food mixture. Each patty should contain about 1/4 or 1/2 cup of dog food, depending on the size of your dog.

  3. Serve patties according to body weight

    Serve small dogs under 10 pounds 1/4 cup twice a day. A dog 20 to 49 pounds should get 1/2 cup twice a day, and serve a 50 pound dog 1 1/4 cup of dog food twice per day. Adjust amounts as needed based on your dogs metabolism, activity level and his appetite.
