How to make a tasty Christmas dinner for your dog
This article contains: dog diet food Christmas Xmas

We've invited writer Elaine Everest, author of hit book Canine Cuisine (£8.99, How To Books) to give us this extra-special recipe for a festive meal for your dog. Hope your dog likes it!


  • One mug of brown rice
  • One beef stock cube
  • Half a small butternut squash
  • Four large carrots
  • One head of broccoli
  • A small bunch of fresh parsley
  • One tray of minced turkey
  • A small carton of chicken liver
  • Two cloves of garlic
  • One mug of wholemeal flour
  • One mug of oatmeal
  • Four eggs
  • Half a mug of vegetable oil



  • Heat your oven to 190°C or gas mark 5.
  • Put the brown rice into a pan with the stock cube and cover with boiling water. Bring to the boil and simmer until the rice is cooked but not too soft.
  • Meanwhile wash the vegetables. Peel the butternut squash and chop all vegetables into even-sized pieces and place into a food processor. Blitz until the vegetables resemble fine breadcrumbs before adding the parsley for a final five-second blitz.
  • Place the finely chopped vegetables into a large mixing bowl along with the wholemeal flour and oatmeal. Mix together.
  • Next, place the minced beef and the ox liver into the food processor and blitz along with the garlic cloves until you have a smooth paste. Add the four eggs and mix well together for several seconds.
  • Add this mix to the bowl and stir together well. At this point, stir in the cooked rice and add the vegetable oil until you have a mixture that is not too runny. It is not essential to use all the oil. If the mix becomes too liquid, add a little more oatmeal to stiffen.
  • Pour into a greased baking tin or two round cake tins and place into the centre of the oven. The new-style silicon bakeware is ideal for this recipe as the cake will slide away from the container with ease. Bake for 45 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when slid into the centre of the cake. Turn out onto a cooling rack and leave to cool.
  • After feeding your dog a portion of his own cake, allow his meal to go down for an hour or so before enjoying a brisk Christmas Day walk with the whole family.

Happy Christmas!

The when I just read a blog, I really hope it doesnt disappoint me approximately this place. Get real, Yes, it was my choice to read, but I just thought youd have some thing intriguing to express. All I hear can be a couple of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy interested in attention.
