If you thought store-bought kibble was the only way to feed your dog or cat, then you’d be mistaken. “One can make his or her own pet food at home, but it is a task that shouldn’t be taken lightly,” says Dr. Jerry Klein, chief veterinary officer at the American Kennel Club. “It will take a lot of dedication on the part of the owner, a lot of work and for some pets, may become quite expensive.”
