Raw Dog Food Supplement Recipe
Raw Food and Homemade Recipes:
Examples of a homemade dog food recipe. Note that each dog is different with different health concerns and often it is better to have the diet modified by a qualified veterinarian/healer to muscle test the exact needs of your pet.
One batch of Raw Dog Food Supplement:
- 3 cups chopped or ground raw turkey, chicken, lean hamburger, lean chuck or lean beef heart.
- 4 teaspoon Oil (Rotate oils and use whatever you have. Sometimes bacon grease is OK, too)
- 5 Teaspoons the appropriate formula of Missing Link supplement or Healthy Powder (see below*)
- 2 Teaspoons Bone Meal (or 1200mg other calcium as recommended ground up)
- 800 i.u. Vitamin E (use high quality brand, not dl-alpha tocophorol which is made from petroleum—motor oil!)
- 1 capsule Vitamin A 10,000 IU (use a high-quality brand)
- 3/4 cup raw vegetables (mixture of Beans, Broccoli, Carrots, Greens, Parsley, Pumpkin, Dandelion Greens)
Mix the oil, powders, and vitamins together. Combine this with the meat. Feed ¼ cup of this mixture for every cup of dog kibble served.
Make 8-9 servings (about 2 cups)
Cottage Cheese Supplement for Dog Kibble Topping (1 Batch)
- 4 cups dog kibble
- 1 cup creamed cottage cheese
- 2 Tea. Vegetable Oil or other recommended oil
- 2 ½ tea. appropriate formula of Missing Link or Healthy Powder (*See below recipe)
- 1 1/3 tea. Bone meal Note: Bone meal should be organic as the inorganic forms often are contaminated with lead
- 400 i.u. Vitamin E
- 3/4 cup raw vegetables
Mix the oil in with the kibble. Sprinkle powders over the kibble. Serve the cottage cheese and vegetables together on the side or mix with the kibble.
Healthy Powder Recipe:
- 2 cups nutritional yeast
- 1 cup Lecithin Granules
- 1/3 cup Kelp
- 1/3 cup Bone meal
- 1000 mg. Vitamin C powder (about ¼ teas Sodium Ascorbate)
- 1 Tea. Garlic Powder
Note from Dr. Moffat: I think that rose hips, acerola or ester C would be a better choice for vitamin C. Sodium ascorbate is a man-made product.)
Also, please chop and add either to food or give separately daily 1 TBLS of some kind of fresh fruit.
