Easter Lunch For Your Dog


Apart from all the chocolate and bank holidays at Easter, we look forward to our Easter lamb roast! It has become firmly entrenched as the meal to eat at Easter just as the Turkey at Christmas! Whether it’s a sunny or cold spring day, the lamb roast is a tradition that so many of us still love to have.

So why should our furry family members miss out on this tradition! They cannot eat chocolate but from what we witness with our French bulldog Yianni, a new toy and a raw meaty bone meal is something that will make up for this!

So with this in mind, we have put together a recipe that we will be following on Easter Sunday for Yianni to enjoy!

FYI - We have written 2 options/idea’s to cover meat and bone in this recipe - lamb shank or diced lamb and lamb bones separately. Lamb shanks can be difficult to source and depending on the size of your dog it may not be suitable. Please remember to supervise when giving bones to your dog!

Also please see our Homemade BARF meal guide for the weight’s of each ingredient types you will need for your dog's weight.

So let’s begin! 


Lamb and Rosemary Recipe


Option 1 - Meat and bone – Diced Lamb and lamb bone

Option 2 - Meat and bone – Raw Lamb shank

Offal – Lamb Heart

Vegetables – Green beans, Spinach, Carrot.

Herbs and supplements - Kelp powder, Nettle powder, Fresh Rosemary.

Optional - 1x Quail egg


Your dog's bowl


Chopping board for the meat and offal

Chopping board and spoon for the vegetables (if you are not using a food processor)

Weighing Scales

Food processor (if you have one)


  1. Cut your vegetables - First, weigh your vegetables. We use a food processor for chopping our ingredients as it can produce smaller cuts. If you do not have a food processor you can cut the vegetables into small portions. Once cut place into your dog’s bowl.
  1. Dice the lamb heart – Weigh to the correct weight for your dog and add to the bowl.
  1. Meat and Bone - If you have chosen option 1 dice your lamb and weigh to the correct weight for your dog. If you are using option 2 you can just place this into their bowl. (We would advise laying down the mat in which you would use for giving them a raw meaty bone as they will likely remove it from their bowl to eat it!)
  1. Add your herbs and supplements – As this is for one meal we would advise a small sprinkle of each ingredient.
  1. Call your dog (if they are not waiting around for it already!) and serve them their tasty Easter Sunday lunch!

We do like to add to any raw diet blog if your dog is dealing with any complex chronic disease e.g. end-stage cancers, animals on antacids or high levels of immune-suppressive drug therapy, then we would recommend you get expert help prior to beginning the transition to a raw diet.

We hope this has been helpful! Let us know how you get on!
