It works well and dogs LOVE it!
½ C cooked turkey or chicken
¼ C whole milk
¼ C white or brown rice
400 mg calcium
1 One-A-Day Multivitamin
1 TBSP flax oil
Mix this well in blender or food processor. Feed ½ to 1 cup per day to small
pets, and increase proportionally. In some cases you will have to syringe
feed - give frequent, small amounts
For dogs only: Add 8 ounces whole barley and 6 ounces rolled oats, and adjust the water content to a total of 16 cups or enough to cover
the ingredients (I don’t recommend the grains portions for cats).
Combine all of the ingredients in a 10-quart stockpot (stainless steel, please) with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then turn down the
heat as low as possible and simmer for 2 hours (the carrots should be quite soft at the end of the cooking time). Remove from the heat, let
cool, and debone the chicken. With an electric hand mixer, or using a food processor and working in batches, blend all the ingredients into
a nice puree; the stew should be slightly thicker for dogs and more soupy for cats. Using ziplock bags or plastic yogurt containers, make up
meal-sized portions. Refrigerate what you’ll need for three days and freeze the rest. Be sure and seek your pet’s advice on ideal meal sizes.
Serving Size: Amounts will vary depending on age, activity level, current health, weight, and season, but here are some guidelines. The
average adult cat will eat roughly 1 cup a day. Because dogs vary so much in size, consult the table below. The amount shown should be
split into at least two meals daily.
Up to 10 pounds                              1 to 1 ½ cups
11 to 20 pounds                               2 to 3 cups
21 to 40 pounds                               4 cups
For each additional 20 pounds, add 2 cups. Remember, all pets are individuals, so let your intuition and observations guide you. Ms. Brown
reminds us to “Monitor your pet’s weight and energy levels…” “Pay attention, observe, and listen to your pets. They have much to teach us.”

Author Unknown
• 16-qt stew pot with cover enough olive oil to coat bottom of pot
• 5-6 lbs. ground beef
• 2 50-oz cans chicken broth
• 4 cups water
• 1 3-lb bag frozen green beans OR broccoli OR peas OR combination of all three
• 1 3-lb bag brown rice
Dog Food Recipe Directions:
Brown ground beef in olive oil. When beef is cooked, add broth, water, and veggies.

in a gallon jug of water and add a bunch of bouillon cubes.) Bring to a boil. Add brown
rice, stir well, cover, and bring to a boil again. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered,
for 1 hour. Remove from heat and let cool overnight. Makes approximately 40-45 cups of
food. Divide the yield into generous 2-cup portions and freeze most of it (it freezes well).
Always have some thawed in the fridge and microwave it for a minute or so to get it to
room temperature. Suggested serving is as follows:
Breakfast (adjust for size of pet)
1 portion (1/2 cup) Auggie's Wolfdown
1/2 cup high-quality all-natural kibble
Dinner (adjust for size of pet)

1 portion (1/2 cups) Auggie's Wolfdown
1/4 cup fresh shredded veggies

Sweet Potato Mush

When sweet potatoes are plentiful and inexpensive, I buy lots of
them and cook them like mashed potatoes. Sprinkle a teaspoon of
cinnamon and mix well. If you mix a heaping teaspoon with their dry
food it is healthy and tasty and they enjoy it!

You can bag the mashed sweet potatoes and freeze any extra for
future use. Just lay on counter to defrost!
