You can’t go wrong with this K9 Meatball recipe! Easy for you to make and bake, delicious and nutritious for your pup to enjoy.


  • 1/2 pound extra lean ground beef or ground chicken (or mix them if you like)
  • 1/2 cup cooked whole grain brown rice
  • 1 shredded carrot
  • 1 stalk chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • unrefined extra virgin coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil to coat pan


  • preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • grease muffin pan or baking sheet
  • combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well
  • fill each muffin tin with about 1/4 cup of the mixture, or form mixture into balls and place on baking sheet
  • bake about 15 minutes or until cooked through (oven times may vary)

Note: If your pup is on a grain free diet, just leave out the rice.

As always, I ask that you please check with your own Veterinarian about which foods are appropriate for your pup.
