In 2003, a study conducted by J.S.J Odendaal showed that when humans pet dogs, their body releases a hormone, oxytocin, which is associated with happiness and bonding, and affection. Owning a pet gives us great joy but requires a critical life skill as well, which is to know how to take responsibility. Pets require multiple things such as food, water, and love, and to ensure their healthy long, happy life, they need to be provided with good food. The reason is that tons of recipes are surfacing nowadays toguide other newbie pet owners to prepare food with ease.

- Chicken and Veggie Slow cooker
This recipe is an absolute gem of a formula, and the directions are pretty simple. To begin with, we will place 2-3 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken thighs and breast in the crockpot; water is then added so that it just covers up the chicken. Then one cubed sweet potato, two sliced carrots, one can of kidney beans, two cans of frozen green beans, and one large cored and cubed apple are added. The mixture will be slowly cooked for 8-9 hours, and two cans of frozen peas will be added 30 minutes before it is about to finish. The rare inclusion of fruit in this recipe makes finger-licking suitable for our adorable pups.
This fun recipe is great as a treat to the pups and relatively simple to make. In a large bowl, we will add 10lbs of ground beef, 2 cups of oat bran, three cans of pumpkin puree, four carrots, boiled and smashed, leaves of 4 kale stalk finely chopped, three slices of bread, cubed small, four eggs and some salt. We will mix them all and form our desirable sizes of meatballs; then, we will put them in a 400-degree oven after dredging the balls lightly in flour. The result is a tremendous once-in-a-while treat for pups who have grown tired of their usual food.
