Turkey on The Fly…Travelling Dog Food Homemade

travelling dog food

Whenever we go travelling, my peep always makes a handy homemade meal to go. They always contain the same tasty ingredients that she uses for my home meals with a healthy protein, some fruit and veggies and a little grain. However these little pup-cakes are perfect one portion travelling dog food with no mess and easy to transport. So when we are on the road she can pop one out of my container and crumbles the pup-cake, adds some kibble and a splash of warm water into my travel bowl. It’s dinner on the go!

Can dogs eat Courgettes (Zucchini)?…You bet, it’s a low-calorie food, low in fat and has many nutrients that dogs need. Peel the rind of the Courgette and either dice or shred into their meal. Courgette contains useful amounts of folate (24 mcg/100 g), potassium (280 mg/100 g) and vitamin A (384 IU [115 mcg]/100 g. A 1/2 cup of zucchini also contains 19% of the recommended amount of manganese.
