Issue # 2 – Recipe: Cooking for Your Pets

Cooking for Your Pets 

We have relationships with animals as well as humans. Some pet owners want to cook for their companions no matter what their species. Many people want to cook for their pets simply because they are a part of the family, while others are more concerned with nutrition and food safety.

If you enjoy spending time in the kitchen and want to cook more, preparing food for your pet may be a fun way to perfect your cooking skills.

If you want to cook for your pet there are some things you need to avoid as they can be deadly to animals. You should never feed your animal chocolate, the sweetener “Xylitol”, grapes, raisins, macadamia nuts, walnuts, moldy foods, mushrooms, mustard seeds, onions, onion powder, garlic, yeast dough, coffee grounds, tea, or alcohol.
