Would you consider homemade pet food over commercially prepared ones?

I think so,There are great recipes on the internet under homemade pet chow on yahoo,your just going to have to try them but I use 20 pd. bags og kibble from walmart and all my dogs love it and its way cheaper than making it and once you make it they will eat nothing else.And they seems healthy and active.

Many pet owners feed cats homemade diets. These diets generally consist of some form of cooked meat or raw meat, ground bone, pureed vegetables, taurine supplements, and other multivitamin supplements. Some pet owners use human vitamin supplements, and others use vitamin supplements specifically engineered for cats.

Yes i am also considering home made pet foods so the pets can also have some other foods to taste not only those commercially foods for pets.

thanks,

Home made pet foods are sometimes good, but you need to really make things sure in preparing those meal. Much better if you consulted up things thru other sources in order to make it better.

Home made food for Dogs is really good, but we can miss something in their diet. A nice quality and nutritious Dog Food can keep your fit and active.

I have 4 shih tzus.  I got Olivia from a puppy mill that was shut down here and then a month later she blessed us with three adorable baby girls.  I am passionate about their health.  I raise them naturally and use no chemicals at all.  I home cook for them exclusively.  I believe it is the absolute best thing I can do for them.  I know what goes in the food and don't have to worry about recalls, allergies etc.  Olivia was very picky when I first got her, but now she eats just about any veggie that I put in her food.  The girls have always been fantastic eaters.  Anyone considering home cooking for your pets, I would highly recommend it!

Well for me Home made food is very good, it is less expensive yet safe because you're the one who made that.

I have a high preference for homemade dog food because it gives me greater control over the quality of the ingredient that go into the preparation of the food and i can also be charge of the health of my dog as regard his food intake. However when it comes to commercial dog food i do not have such control and i can only  believe what they say even if it is untrue.

Yes, I most definitely would. For one, most commercial dog foods contain corn, which a lot of dogs are allergic to.
