Frequently Asked Questions About the Best Meat Grinder for Dog Food

i) What type of grinder is best for making dog food?

A high-grade grinder for making dog food must offer motor, capacity, weight, and durability. From this list, we highly recommend the Turboforce Classic 3000, capable of performing heavy-duty tasks without any guesswork and grinding meat faster than other meat grinders available in the marketplace. 

You can easily create mouth-watering and nutrient-packed meals for your four-legged friends at home. All in all, the Turboforce Classic is worth investing your money in thanks to its powerful motor power (3000 watts), ease of use, and conveniences.

ii) Can you send bones through a meat grinder for dog food?

The answer is Yes. Generally, you can grind soft poultry bones from chicken, duck, or other small fowl in these grinders, while some can perform more heavy bones. However, it is best to avoid loading the grinder with larger and harder bones so that your machine can be used for a long time.

iii) Can you use a meat grinder as a food mill for dog food?

Yes, you can. Instead of going a long way and using a food processor or food mill, you can easily use it to grind wet, raw, and dry dog food. Sometimes dogs eat kibble too fast and end up choking or getting an upset stomach. Therefore, grinding kibble in with their raw food is a good idea to prevent this.

iv) Are ground bones from a food grinder good for dogs?

Yes. Ground bones are an excellent source of calcium. Additionally, putting the bones mixed with meat into the grinder eliminates the threat of GI and digestive issues, broken teeth, and choking. Your dog's diet should always contain equal parts of calcium and phosphorus, which is where ground bones come in. Ground meat and bone make nutrients more easily absorbed due to the surface area that the particles provide.

v) What types of raw meat should be fed into a meat grinder for dogs?

Lean beef, turkey, and chicken are some of the best meats to grind for your dog. Ground animal-based proteins are good for dogs if you want them to be healthy and strong. Furthermore, keep in mind that you can cook the meat for your dog if you don't want to feed it raw.

vi) What is the cheapest lean meat to grind for dog food?

Chicken bones and meat are the best to grind if you are on a budget. Additionally, chicken is awesome for dogs on a diet as well as dogs with an upset stomach. Furthermore, sometimes your pet needs the motivation to eat, and chicken provides the best incentive.

vii) Can I use a manual meat grinder for raw dog food?

Yes, you can. Manual meat grinders are efficient, and you can achieve the best grind for beef, chicken, and pork for your dog. Furthermore, a manual grinder has fewer moving parts, so it's not likely to break down. You will get years of use grinding raw dog food.

viii) Can I feed my dog homemade ground dog food?

Yes, you can. As long as it doesn't contain anything poisonous for dogs. If you ground raw meat, you can feed your dog without a problem. Keep in mind that if your dog is on a diet, don't feed homemade ground raw meat unless your vet gives you the go-ahead.

ix) Can I boil meat meant for my dog before feeding it to the meat grinder?

Yes, you can. Some pet owners prefer boiled meat because it's easier on the dog's tummy. Additionally, boiled meat goes in the grinder without a problem.


This is our in-depth discussion on the best meat grinder for raw dog food. These are all long-lasting and durable; hence, you will not have to worry about purchasing a new meat mixer now and then.
