Healthy Homemade Dog Foods

Here are a few of Patches favorite meals,
You will notice that some of these recipes have carrots, and peas. Patches loves them but our veterinarian suggested we not give these to him because of the high sugar content in carrots, and the high starch in peas.

This is why it is so *Important to check with your veterinarian before changing your pets diet.
These recipes are just guidelines fell free to change up and experiment with your ingredients to make sure they are getting the proper nutrients for their type of cancer.

Recommended Weekly Diet Consist Of the Following
50% Protein Average feeding amount per day
25% Veggies 2% of body weight
15% organs Liver,Beef heart etc  
5% Fruit  

It is best if you use organic meats and vegetables.

For meats: The leaner the meat is the better. Actually if you know someone who hunts or a good butcher that handles meats such as venison, rabbit, buffalo, elk are all great foods.

For Poultry: Skinless, Boneless and Organic is best.

One thing a lot of people do not know is it's good to fast your pet once a week. What we do is go to the butcher and get beef bones RAW not cooked or smoked and that is all he gets that day. This is good for them because it is a natural way for the body to burn up toxins and fat, and starches that build up over a period of time.

Dog Cancer & GARLIC

garlic for dog cancer

We all know garlic has numerous beneficial properties. It's used to treat everything from the common cold to cancer, but more importantly for pets, it stimulates digestion and boosts the immune system in protein, vitamins A, B, and C, and essential minerals, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and selenium. It also contains seventeen different amino acids. When used in the right proportions it's a natural antibiotic, and it's recommended by every holistic veterinarian I know. Why? Because vampires aren't the only bloodsuckers this flavorful bulb repels. It helps control intestinal parasites, including tapeworms, roundworms, and hookworms, and repels the bane of some pets' existence—fleas. It's also an excellent anti fungal agent.
"Garlic helps to eliminate worms, strengthen digestion and beneficially stimulate the intestinal tract. It is also indicated for animals that tend to be overweight or suffer hip pain from arthritis or dysphasia article by:
