With the poisonings of pets from commercial pet foods, many pet owners are now looking for healthy and natural pet food recipes that they can easily make from home. Here are three different avenues pet owners can use to find safe and nutritious pet food recipes for their beloved pets.

Research the Internet to learn the safe and natural foods for your particular pet's diet. This will help you recognize a safe and healthy pet food recipe when you see it.2
Do a search in your favorite Internet browser for pet food recipes.3
Choose a Web site from the results to begin your recipe search. Look to see if the Web site has recipes for your specific pet i.e.: dog, cat, bird.4
Research the Web site to see where its recipes originate and if they are tested. Many Web sites that contain pet food recipes will have recipes that are submitted by pet owners but are not tested for their nutritional value. Try to choose natural pet food recipes that have been tested.5
Scrutinize the recipes for yourself. Based on the foods you know your pet needs -- and those they cannot eat, do they look nutritional? Avoid recipes that have a lot of unnecessary fillers. For an example of healthy pet food recipes for dogs and cats, please see the Related Articles section, below.6
Continue your search through multiple Web sites until you are sure you have found pet food recipes that are both healthy and safe.7
When you find an acceptable recipe, print it out and read it thoroughly. Follow the instructions carefully and be sure to properly store any extra pet food you make.
