New Line of Human-Grade Dog Food from Emilie’s

Oct 31, 2014 12:23AM

Emilie’s Homemade Dog Food has created a line of all-natural, homemade, human-grade dog food. Emilie’s offers four whole food recipes of the product, all of which are sold in mason jars. Owner Emilie Paolini began making homemade dog food in 2002 after adopting Ben, a finicky puppy from the American Bullmastiff Association. “I know that dogs are prone to developing many of the same diseases as humans, so I researched and developed recipes based on recommendations from the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association,” she says.

Recent pet food recalls have made owners more aware and educated about the ingredients in their pet’s food, Paolini notes. “Many consider their pet a member of the family and would like to feed these animals the same highquality food as they, themselves, eat,” she adds.

All of Emilie’s recipes contain a high-quality protein, vegetables, legumes, gluten-free grains, flax seed and fruit. One version is vegan, created for Axel, a spaniel mix that was diagnosed with an animal-protein allergy. “That was the most challenging recipe to create, but that’s all I feed him now and he’s no longer on his allergy medication,” Paolini notes.
