My sweet Min Pin girl had inoperable cancer (she recently crossed the rainbow bridge), so I wanted to create something nutritious and tasty, since she was a very picky eater. I came up with this recipe that she, and my other dogs love.
8-10 oz of frozen green bean & carrot mix
8-10 oz. of frozen peas
1 - 2 medium sweat potatoes, cut into small pieces, skin on
1/2 - 3/4 cup brown rice
4-5 cups water
1/4-1/2 cup raw liver (frozen is fine)
4-5 lbs. of hamburger OR 3-5 pounds of chicken (I remove all skin & fat from chicken & broth)
Optional: ground turkey, other organ meats
Add ingredient list in the order as I have listed above Press pressure cooker and cook for 65 min.
On the stove:
Use a heavy pan with a lid (I like a ceramic coated cast iron pot). Add all ingredients and bring to boil. You may want to add an additional cup of water when cooking it on the stove top Reduce heat to low and cook for 4-5 hours with lid on. When cooled, separate all bones and discard, but leave all of the rest. Shred chicken or crumble up hamburger with fingers and then lightly mash (or leave in chunks) all of the ingredients, including the meat together.
Bag up into individual bags. For every 10 lbs of dog, feed 1.5 cups, 2 X a day (for smaller dogs). Also have available dry kibble so they always have plenty to eat.
*It is important to make sure that your dog gets all minerals & vitamins that their body needs. I always make sure that dry kibble or canned dog food is an option.
