Discussing Questions And Answers About Dry Dog Food Made With Turkey

Ruth asks…

Looking for homeade dog food recipies…?

I have a 5 year old rottweiler, we rescued her about 8 months ago and when we got her she was fine. Over the past 4 months she has developed allergies. After nuermous trips to the vet and being put on steroids and been given shots she still wasn’t getting better. After she chewed bald spots into her rear end I finally went to a new vet who gave her Omega supplements and more pills, but also gave me a food to try. The new food is duck and potato. However with her size the bag would be 90.00 for the largest bag which would only last about 2 weeks. I have been trying to find a cheaper food made with potato and duck, but was wondering if i can make her food myself. Does anyone have any suggestions, or recipies I could try for my itchy biting dog?

Jimmy answers:

Meat & Rice Stew

2/3 cup of meat – turkey, liver, or hamburger are best
1/2 cup rice
1/2 of a small potato
pinch of garlic powder
1/2 carrot
1 cup water

Cut the meat, potato, and carrot into small pieces. Combine with water and garlic powder in a pot. Turn on stove to high, bring to a boil then simmer. Cook the rice then stir it into the pot and simmer for a few more minutes. Remove from heat and strain out the juice but save a little. After it cools serve and add the little bit of juice back to it.

Doggie Tartar

1 cup of dry dog food
3 eggs
1/2 cup ground hamburger

Mix eggs and hamburger into a nice tartar and serve over the dry dog food.

——————————————————————————-

Doggie Casserole

1-1.5 cups of meat (steak, kidney, chicken, lamb, or any combination)
1 package dry vegetable soup
4 cups of cooked rice
1/3 cup of pearl barley
pinch of garlic salt
1 teaspoon crushed or grated ginger
Dash of soy sauce
Small squeeze of tomato paste

Place everything except the rice and soup mix into large covered microwave-safe dish and cook on high for 2 minutes. Stir and repeat until meat is starting to be cooked. Add soup mix and cooked rice and cook another few minutes. Cool completely and serve.

—————————————————————-

Chicken and Rice

3 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
1 cup of cooked rice
1 cup of cooked carrots
1 cup of low-fat cottage cheese

Cook chicken and carrots by boiling and chop into pieces, save a little bit of the broth.. Mix with the rice and cottage cheese. Cool completely and serve – pour the little bit of saved broth back on top.

Doggie Jambalaya

1 pound of ground beef or turkey
2 cups cooked brown rice
2 cans of mixed vegetables – broccoli, asparagus, green beans, corn, carrots, spinach, are all good
2 hardboiled eggs chopped and shells crushed
1 can of mackerel
1 tsp. Garlic salt
a few chopped chicken innards (livers or gizzards)

Pulverize vegetables in a food processor or blender. Then mix everything together in a big pot. Cover with water and bring to a simmer for about 2 hrs, stirring occasionally. Cool and store in freezer-safe baggies in the freezer. Thaws in 15 minutes under hot running water.

John asks…

Is Eukanuba low residue good dog food?

Jimmy answers:

No, it’s actually quite disgusting. I don’t know WHY anyone would buy pet food from a vet…these products have little nutritional value and your vet is making a huge profit by charging you a fortune.

Here is what you are feeding your dog:
-CORN GRITS (Corn grits would be considered a grain fraction, missing its complete host of nutrients – cheap filler)
-BREWERS RICE (Brewer’s rice is a lower quality rice product that is missing many of the nutrients found in ground rice and ground brown rice – cheap filler)
-CHICKEN BY-PRODUCTS (feet, heads, organs, feather, etc. These come from rendering plants and provide little to no digestible protein – they are there as a filler)
-CHICKEN (this is good but should be the first ingredient)
-FISH MEAL (this should be a specific type of fish. Only companies hiding something don’t label the fish type)
-DRIED BEET PULP (this is a filler and common allergen that often upsets the dogs digestive system)
-NATURAL CHICKEN FLAVOUR (okay)
-DRIED EGG PRODUCT (shells and eggs not fit for human consumption)
-CHICKEN FAT (okay)

This food has very little nutritional value. Vets prescribe what they are told when in college…Hills Science Diet and Proctor and Gamble (Eukanuba) fund these colleges!!!! Wonder why there is bias?

So, here are the ingredients of Innova which is by far one of the best foods on the market.

Innova Adult:
Turkey
Chicken
Chicken Meal
Ground Barley
Ground Brown Rice
Potatoes
Natural Flavors
Ground White Rice
Chicken Fat
Herring
Apples
Carrots
Cottage Cheese
Sunflower Oil
Alfalfa Sprouts
Egg
Garlic

These ingredients are ALL whole, fresh, human grade products. Natura, the company that makes Innova, surpasses other companies for quality because of the ingredients they use but also because they will only produce a bag of food when it has been order. Take a guess at how long your bag of Eukanuba will sit in a warehouse before you purchase it….

Anyways, if you want your dog to be healthy and free of health problems, you need to feed a high quality food made with fresh ingredients that are going to promote good health.

Other good foods include: Wellness, Fromm, Merrick, Solid Gold, Evolve, Canidae, EAgle Pack Holistic, etc. Stay AWAY from generic or mass market companies…they’re in it for the money only and don’t care what goes into the foods.

To Precii….take a look at the ingredient lists for Eukanuba…Corn is either the first or second ingredient in most of their formulas…EUKANUBA IS NOT THE BEST FOOD…I hope you look at the ingredients I’ve posted for Innova and realize that Euk doesn’t even come close.

Chicken breasts or cubed chicken cooks up real quick and can be added to rice or pasta. Or you can cook them at home to be eaten cold, or rewarmed.
Foil pack dinner – ¼ pound of ground beef per person, chopped onions, carrots, celery, garlic and cubed potatoes with a splash of soy sauce. Close tightly and set on coals or on stovetop and cook for 30 minutes or so.
Hot dogs and beans are great All-American camp foods.
After the ice has run out, dinners can still be delicious :

Macaroni and cheese (packaged or camp-made)
Canned chili
Canned stews
Pasta and dried veggies
Grilled cheese and soup
A Delicious Beans and rice dish: Cook rice. In pan sauté garlic and chopped onions. Add canned black beans and canned chopped tomatoes. Heat up and add cilantro, pinch of salt and lime juice. Serve bean mix on rice with shredded sharp cheese.
Fresh fish! You can enjoy fresh food anytime if you’re lucky enough to land a legal sized one. Clean the fish well away from campsite and bury the guts (to deter bears). Never wear your fish cleaning clothes in the tent. Cook and serve the fish as soon as possible for maybe the best meal you have ever eaten!
