Homemade natural pet food is definitely worth considering. We want to look after our pets just as much as ourselves. Of course use natural pet foods in conjunction with the diet recommended by your vet.
Is your pet bursting with health? Is he or she happy? Are you spending a fortune on veterinary bills? Different vet groups across the USA estimate that between 20-50% of dogs and cat are overweight – they have developed all kinds of serious diseases from eating processed, non-nutritional foods. Scientists have examined the pet food industry and have packaged their results in their book. It’s called “Feed Your Pet Right: The Authoritative Guide to Feeding Your Dog and Cat”. See what you think.
Cats and dogs need vitamins and minerals just like humans
When dogs and cats don’t eat right, serious health problems like digestion, kidney, liver and heart problems, let alone fleas, worms, infected ears, eyes, cancer, inflammation, and the like arise. Of course, all pets need to be fed well – they are much-loved members of the family, offering emotional support. Why not start preparing “real” food treats like these at home.
½ cup chicken livers cooked
¼ cup water
1+¼-cup whole wheat flour
¼ cup cooked and mashed carrot
1 Tablespoon soft margarine
Preheat the oven to 325 F. Place cooked livers in a blender, adding the water. Combine flour and margarine in a bowl, adding liver mixture and carrots. Knead dough, then rolling out ¼ inch thick one-inched sized pieces. Place on a greased baking sheet for 10 minutes. Makes 12
2½ cups whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon salt
Cup cooked pumpkin with no salt
2 Tablespoons peanut butter
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350° F. Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl, adding the water to make the dough stiff and dry before rolling into a ½ inch roll of dough, to be cut into half-inch pieces, before baking in preheated oven until hard, for about 40 minutes.
Food that you prepare in your own kitchen can literally brim with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, intact amino acids and the like, all that Nature intended for them. Let’s put it this way, a change in the way you feed your dog or cat can literally bring about miraculous results in sick animals eating processed foods.
