Recipe: Salmon Quinoa Homemade Dog Food


Try this healthy homemade dog food recipe for your dogs! It’s full of antioxidants, healthy fats and omegas. My frenchies do so well on salmon — it’s definitely become their favorite.

Salmon for dogs?

Salmon is so beneficial for dogs with its high protein, amino and omega-3 fatty acids that they need. It helps boosts their immune system, reduce inflammation and even reduce skin allergies. Amino acids are a must in an animal’s diet. Dogs that do not get enough of the essential amino acids can have healthy issues ranging from: weakened immune systems and skin and coat allergies.

This homemade dog food recipe includes baked salmon, raw shredded veggies, cooked quinoa and pureed pumpkin (lots of fiber). This one’s a variation of the original dog food recipe I’ve posted before. Weston can be really picky and has been known to skip meals but with this version, he hasn’t missed a meal yet!


  • 6 lbs salmon
  • 2 cups quinoa
  • 3 zucchinis
  • 2 yellow squash
  • 4 carrots
  • 2 cans pureed pumpkin
  • 7 oz melted coconut oil (almost a cup)
  • Any supplement/vitamin you like or recommended by vet (try Canine Complete)
  1. Bake salmon in oven 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
  2. Cook quinoa with water until quinoa soaks up all liquid and fluff with fork. You’ll have over 4 cups of cooked quinoa.
  3. Shred all veggies with grater.
  4. Mix all ingredients together!

I feed Weston (22 lbs) a cup of food per meal; breakfast and dinner. I store all the food in quart size ziploc bags and freeze them. They’re easy to thaw (usually transfer a couple in the fridge the night before) and easy to portion. This recipe should last about 2-3 weeks!
