Natural Food For Adult dogs and puppies

27 Jan 2010 | by | Posted in: Nutrition

Muscle Meat (including Heart) Feed raw or lightly cooked (never feed cooked bones). Add 1/2 tsp. ground eggshell ,Adding calcium is not necessary if the added meat is only a small portion of the diet, or if you are adding raw meat with bone that is consumed. Eggs: raw or cooked, such as lightly scrambled, soft- or hard-boiled. Whole raw eggs are fine, as the yolks contain plenty of biotin to make up for what the raw egg whites destroy. One of the healthiest and easiest to add foods. Liver and other Organ Meat feed small amounts of liver at a time, as it is rich and can lead to diarrhea, but it is very dense nutritionally and good to feed. Kidney is similar, but not quite as rich. Most other organ meats, like hearts and gizzards, are nutritionally more like muscle meats and can be fed in greater quantity, though a few dogs will react to these as well if too much is fed at one time. Yogurt plain, preferably organic. Whole milk (rather than low- or non-fat) is fine unless your dog needs a low-fat diet.Dogs who have problems with cow's milk products may do better with those made from goat's milk. Cottage Cheese or Ricotta Cheese low-fat or whole milk. Canned Pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix) great for digestion, helps both diarrhea and constipation. Use in small amounts, as too much can also cause diarrhea. Veggies preferably pureed raw or can be steamed (whole raw veggies, such as broccoli or carrot sticks, are not harmful but can't be digested by dogs so they don't get any nutritional value from them). Good veggies include carrots, celery, all kinds of greens (kale, collard greens, mustard greens, bok choy, dandelion greens, cabbage, spinach, chard, parsley, cilantro, etc.), Pasta, Grains and Starchy Vegetables: some dogs with allergies, digestive problems, seizures or arthritis do better if grains are removed from the diet (this may also apply to starchy veggies). Dogs who need to lose weight will do better with added high-protein foods rather than Grains and starchy veggies, such as potatoes, sweet potatoes and winter squashes, need to be cooked in order to be digestible. Grains include white rice, brown rice, oatmeal, quinoa, barley and more. Fruit banana, papaya, apple, pear, blueberries, avocado, etc. Note that avocado pits and skin are toxic to dogs.. Green Tripe Green tripe smells awful, but dogs adore it and it's quite healthy for them.
