Re: More Recipes for You

//////////////////////////////////////////////

Good morning fellow pet lovers, and generally all around nice people ­čÖé

The whole food thing is VERY confusing.

What do you feed?

Kibble vs Canned?

Home Diets?

Raw?

The Pet Food Recall highlighted just how BIG and UNREGULATED Pet Food Manufacturing is.

Who would have imagined that melamine made it’s way into many supposed PREMIUM Quality Pet Foods?

It *really* is hard to know what is BEST to feed.

So here is my take on it.

1. Feed a quality, preferable holistic kibble – but NOT exclusively, and rotate brands.

2. Feed at least 50% canned to your cats.

3. Consider incorporating Raw – I am feeding my dog Lewis Raw once or twice a week.

4. Make some diets at home – I am now doing this at least once a week.

5. Feed a quality Dog Supplement. Here’s one I think highly of ­čÖé – and you can get it for 50% OFF here:

Here are some recipes that you can try at home:

—————————
At-Home Dog Food Recipe
—————————

Chicken and Rice Recipe (based on a 75 lb dog)

White long grain Rice (or brown if no allergies), cooked – 5 cups
Vegetable oil (or Olive oil) – 6 teaspoons
Cooked chicken breast – 2 cups
Adult Multivitamin/multimineral Supplement – 2 tabs
Posture┬« caplet (600 mg elemental calcium) – 5 caplets
Morton Lite Salt Mixture – 1 1/2 teaspoons

Cook protein and carbohydrate (and vegetables if added).

This recipe represent the amount to be fed per day and can be fed in multiple meals. More than one day’s worth of the food can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 2 weeks.

Prior to serving each meal and after warming, add the appropriate amount of supplement to the food and mix thoroughly. Heating supplements that contain vitamins can destroy their effectiveness.

The amount of supplement(s) shown above is the daily amount. Therefore, divide the amount listed by the number of meals given a day.

If you are giving my supplement, Dr. Jones’ Ultimate Canine Health Formula, you can eliminate the multivitamin in the recipe, and reduce the calcium by the appropriate amount.

——————————–
At-Home Cat Food Recipe
——————————–

High Protein Recipe (based on a 9 lb Adult Cat)

Broiled Pork 1/2 cup
Cooked Peas 1/4 cup
Vegetable Oil (or Olive oil) 1 teaspoon
Adult Multivitamin/multimineral Supplement 1/4 tablet
Taurine tablet (1 gram tablet with 500 mg taurine) 1/4 tablet
Morton Lite Salt Mixture 1/4 teaspoon
Caltrate® 600 1/2 capsule

Cook protein and vegetable.

This recipe represent the amount to be fed per day and can be fed in multiple meals. More than one day’s worth of the food can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 2 weeks.

You can substitute the vitamin/mineral supplements with an appropriate feline supplement. Prior to serving each meal and after warming, add the appropriate amount of supplement to the food. Mix thoroughly. Heating supplements that contain vitamins can destroy their effectiveness.

The amount of supplement(s) shown above is the daily amount. Therefore, divide the amount listed by the number of meals given a day.

    Hi Andrew,

    I think it’s great that you have all this information out there for people about natural ways and holistic ways to make your pets healthy. I only wish all vets would stop selling harmful food and vaccines etc and become more knowledgeable! Now it says in your cat food homemade diet, that you need to add 1 gram tablet with 500 mg taurine, and then you say 1/4 of that tablet daily right? So this means that the approximate daily requirement of taurine for a cat is 125mg?
    My other question to you is could you tell us what the daily requirements for amino acids and other vitamins are for cats, or is that something you need to go to school for?

    Dr. Jones, I agree with your view of commercial pet foods. I have switched all of my dogs and cats to raw diets of poultry and beef. They get organ meats and bones as well. From what I understand, however, rice (or any grains) are not recommended for either dogs or cats. Some limited fruits and vegetables are recommended. I shread an apple occasionally for my dogs and lightly cook a shreeded zucchini for my dogs and give wheatgrass and sea kelp supplements to both my dogs and cats. Do you believe that rice is necessary for dogs, and if so, why? Thank you for your answer.

    Thankyou for sharing these recipies with us animal lovers. I believe in the natural foods myself. It is a darn shame that we are led to believe that so many of our commercial dog foods that we are encouraged to by thinking they are good have killed so many of our beloved friends. I am so grateful for your sight. Keep up the good work!
