Re: Share recipes on Cooked Diets

In a large mixing bowl combine the following:
3.83 pounds of meat (regular beef) included in this should be approximately 8 oz. of calf liver
5 cups (dry) quick oats
1/3 cup of wheat germ
2 cups of wheat bran
500ml of water
All ingredients are raw!

In food processor:
50 ml molasses
25 ml Safflower oil
25 ml Flax oil (cold pressed)
25 ml codliver oil
75 ml applecider vinegar
4 cloves of garlic
3 cups of carrots
2 tablespoons raisins
3 small eggs or 2 large (cooked 5 minutes) shell and all

Blend/grind until all ingredients are in small pieces, combine back with the meat/grain mixture. Feed approximately 3% of your dogs body weight for an adult dog per day.

@ AK GSD - Raisins can kill your dog, I'd suggest replacing them with something like cranberries or blueberries.

Re: Share recipes on Cooked Diets

I read online that the ratio for Meat to Veggie is 2:1. Is this true?

I've been feeding my 3.5 months old gsd 3 times a day the following:
1.5 cup of dry food
3 tablespoon of fresh cooked food (chicken, egg, carrot and broccoli)
1 tablespoon of water/chicken soup w/chicken oil
*1 teaspoon of Missing Link in the morning

So far I haven't tried to feed him any fruit since he has sensitive stomach...

This is my first GSD so can anyone please comment/suggest?

Re: Share recipes on Cooked Diets

I just want to throw this out there.I'm not trying to tell anyone any thing.But We have home cooked for our dogs for over a year.and the main stay was rabbit & potatoes.well I had been bugging the DW on trying we did and man what an change.they behave so much better,and there coats are like velvet.also It takes about 1/2 the time and 1/2 the cost.Not sure if it was the not cooking the meat or removing the carbs.but what a difference and it has only been a few weeks

OK so here is what i made today:
browned ground turkey
brown rice cooked in low sodium chicken broth
frozen mixed veg
i went with 3-2-1 proportions
3 c meat
2 cups rice
1 cup veg
threw it all in the cuisinart and gave it a whirl

we'll see what inga thinks of it!
i'm thinking all i need to add to this is calcium source - eggs?

at first purchase it is more expensive per cup than canned natural balance but once i source a cheaper ground turkey or some alternative poultry (i think i'll boil up a whole chicken next time) it'll bring the cost way down. plus i can pronounce everything in her dish.

my favorite bumper sticker:
what wisdom can you find
that is greater than kindness?
