The Raw Dog Food Diet

Approx 1/3 of the diet is made up of the following:

1. Raw, naturally raised (without hormones and antibiotics), ground turkey; and whole, ground chicken, which makes up approx. 1/3 of the diet..
2. Raw, pureed organic carrots, celery and apples (in blender or food processor with water until baby food texture. Note: The apples and other fruit are not a good idea if your dog has an ailing pancreas; they have too much natural sugar; and they should be replaced with more green leafy vegetables--cabbage is good
3. Raw, organic egg yolks; THE YOLKS MUST BE RAW NOTE: Raw egg whites interfere with biotin absorption—a no-no!
4. Ground, organic flax, pumpkin and sesame seeds (flax only for the cat)

SUPPLEMENTS: [approx. 1/3 of the diet by volume]
· Organic, cold pressed flax seed oil
· Cold-pressed olive oil (usually organic).
· Fish oil (Carlson's or Now brand which we trust to be free of heavy metals).
· Lecithin granules (non-gmo by NOW brand).
· Solgar brewer’s yeast (debittered, & grown on sugar beets).
· Y.S. Organic Bee Farms royal jelly, bee pollen, & propolis,
· Organic kelp powder.
· Organic dandelion root powder.
· Organic alfalfa leaf powder
· Chlorophyll liquid or capsules—the cat gets organic spirulina powder instead of the chlorophyll that the dogs get; spirulina is high in chlorophyll and cats are crazy about it
· Garlic oil gel-caps for dogs. The cat gets a bit of the powder from a capsule of Kyolic aged, deodorized, organic garlic · MSM, glucosamine, and chondroitin for the German Shepherds. This is some extra prevention for them because of the breed’s tendency toward hip dysphasia.
· For Cats, 1/4 to 1/2 a capsule of Taurine to the mix for the day (depending on the size of the cat). This is crucial because cats have been known to be deficient in Taurine if it is not specifically added to their food.

Lots of organic celery sticks; organic cabbage leaves (which they love, and I sell at my store); diced organic carrots (diced because they poop out whole pieces when carrots are not pureed); organic, raw greens (usually dandelion roots [dried or fresh], parsley stems or spinach leaves).

We steam-distill our own water, then “replace” the lost minerals by adding drops of Concentrace, by Trace Minerals Research, which come from the sea water from the clean side of the Great Salt Lake (minus the salt).
**This menu is a suggestion of a raw diet that has worked personally for my dogs and many others and is highly recommended when rehabilitating dogs who suffer from severe allergies, poisoning, or poor immune systems.  If you have an emergency situation please seek the advice of your vetrinarian.
