Preparing meals for your pets at home might sound like a daunting process, not to mention the mess and time involved. However, by following a few key rules, home-cooking can be much easier - and more fun - than you think:
Keep it simple
Unlike commercial pet foods which have ingredients lists as long as a bad novel, home-prepared meals can be kept super-simple, often with just 3 or 4 ingredients.
Use one-pot recipes
All of the recipes on the VetChef site are designed to be cooked in one pot, making the process as quick and easy as possible.
Variety is the spice of life
One of the great advantages of home-cooking is that your pet can enjoy different meals every day. Varying their diet also helps to keep them healthy and reduce the risk of nutritional deficiencies.
Listen to your pet
Pets are very honest food critics so let yourself be guided by your pet's reaction to the food you serve and you'll soon work out what they like and what they leave. It's also key to monitor their health, particularly their weight, and make sure their diet is providing the right balance of nutrients for them.
