You don’t want to eat cereal every day, do you?
Imagine how you feel about your pets being fed dry food every day and nothing else.
We see our pets as family and want nothing but the best for them, and perhaps this should include providing them with consciously prepared food as well.
We admit that home cooked meals take a lot of time and effort to do, and getting that bag of commercial dog food is easier and more convenient.
However, we shouldn’t be out of options, given that there are a number of parents who have decided to open a shop, making their fresh, human-compliant, home-cooked meals and meals readily available to their friends and family – and even cats.

Rav treats PH
One-year-old Pembroke Welsh Corgi Rocco developed an extremely sensitive stomach, which made him feel lethargic. After a number of vet visits, claw parents Angela Sanares and Rafael Angelis decided to turn Rokku into an all-natural diet—real meat, real vegetables, and preservative-free—including his treats. The change in diet brought Rokku back to his playful personality.
The couple then decided to start the Ruff treatment, so that they could share healthy diet alternatives to other parents and also foster a special bond between them and their frappers.
Sweet and savory treats make up the Ruff Treats menu. Pets – through their children, of course – can choose from foie gras (dried pork liver strips), chicken fingers (dried chicken breast strips), filet ‘Minions’ (dried lean beef cubes) and char siu chips. For “dessert,” there’s Peanut Butter and Banana Pudding made with mashed banana and peanut butter pudding made with agar agar, pumpkin spice pudding and cinnamon agar pudding. There’s also Alpha Bites, an alphabet-shaped baked cookie made with whole wheat flour, mashed peanuts, carrots, and homemade applesauce.
Ruff Treats believes that what is good for humans is also good for our pets. All of their desserts are made with high quality, locally sourced ingredients and are inspired by the delicious dishes that humans enjoy. They work in small batches for both dried meats and baked crackers to maintain the quality of the foods.

Woof eats home cooked dog food
Dan and Ann Dela Cruz of Woof Eats have been feeding their dogs home-cooked food for several years now. But it wasn’t until recently that Ann decided to make the meals she provides also available to other pet parents who want healthy options for their pets.
“The idea to sell this online came up when we lost Misha to Ehrlich disease. I was really devastated and needed to keep myself occupied,” said Ann. I tend to make home cooked meals for the dogs because it makes them happy too.
Home cooked dog food solved quite a few of the problems at Forkids from encouraging a picky eater to treating allergies and urinary tract infections. Our home-cooked pork and vegetables are 100 percent free from preservatives, fillers, and artificial flavors, and they ensure that only the freshest human-grade ingredients are used.
“We cook the food in small batches on a weekly basis to keep it fresh and to avoid freezing for several months,” Ann said. Watch out for new Woof Eats flavors coming soon. @woof.eats on Instagram

Pet Alley was cooked out of a desire to feed healthy, homemade food to two picky Pomeranians. Cooking fresh batches of dog food regularly has made the people behind the brand realize that they may also provide gourmet pet food for those with picky eaters.
The three types are Porky Pet Party, Beef Bow Wow (best seller), and Chicken Chow Chow. Each 500-gram package is guaranteed grain-free, salt-free, and preservative-free. Meats are mashed into squash and many steamed vegetables for an extra boost of nutrients. All ingredients are human grade, locally sourced and freshly cooked.
Although it was initially intended for dogs, cats can also enjoy home-cooked meals. According to Pet Alley, their recipes contain at least 50 percent meat to vegetables, so both cats and dogs can meet all of their daily protein needs.
