Healthy Homemade Meals for Dogs

My purpose in teaching about  juicing and healthy eating is to help you prevent disease and/or heal your body if you lose your health.  

Being a dog lover, I also long to see the same for our little furry friends. Last week my neighbor gave me a report on healthy eating for dogs and how this helps prevent cancer in dogs. In a 2005 study of Scottish Terriers with bladder cancer called transitional cell carcinoma (TCC), those dogs that got veggies three times a week or more had a decreased risk of cancer, and carrots were the most common vegetable given. In this particular study, Scotties that ate more green leafy vegetables and yellow-orange vegetables had a decreased risk of TCC. A staggering 1 in 1.65 dogs and 1 in 3 cats will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.

I’m no stranger to healthy dining for dogs or doggie cancer for that matter.  Years ago we healed our first Schnauzer MacKenzie of cancer through diet changes and a special serum our vet made.  He was 9 years old when he was diagnosed with cancer in his toe, which was amputated.  Then it spread to his paw.  At that point we said we would not destroy this lovely little dog one paw at a time.  We went searching for help.  I started making homemade dog food because I had no idea what was in the canned stuff I was giving him, even though it was a healthy brand. Mac got rid of the cancer. Amazingly, he lived another 9 years, dying at the age of 18.

The studies showed that dogs that ate leafy greens at least three times a week, were 90% less likely to get cancer than dogs that ate done. And dogs fed yellow-orange vegetables at least three times a week were 70% less likely to get cancer.

I make homemade meals for Annie Mae, our Schnauzer.  She loves them. I buy organic meat at Costco and cook it with organic veggies that I change up from week to week such as broccoli, green beans and asparagus.  I guy a big bag of frozen organic veggies sometimes.  I make a cup of organic brown rice on the side, and mix it with the meat-veggie mixture.  I freeze one batch and put the other batch in the fridge.  She gets 1/2 cup twice a day, and 1/4 cup of healthy dry.  She also gets some fresh carrots every day.  

You can cook up veggies about to go bad and mix in leftover salad for your angel in fur. You can also mix in a little veggie pulp leftover from juicing, but no citrus pulp.  Citrus is not good for dogs.

Your pet needs good nutrition just like you do.   Believe me—it pays off.  Annie Mae is 10 years old and she has not been to the vet for anything except an injury and dry eye syndrome in one eye (which we cured), check ups, and teeth cleaning. You can keep your best friend healthy with good nutrition choices.

    What kind of healthy dry do you recommend? There is so many kinds out there that I don’t have a clue which is the best. Thank you.

    When you say 1 cup of green veggies, do you mean to cook them or give them to your dog raw? I fix organic chicken mixed with steamed broccoli and organic brown rice, but now my dog is tired of it after so many years and if I try to give her a different meat mixed with vegetables, it upsets her stomach something fierce, so I am stuck giving her the chicken. Any advice would greatly be appreciated.

    • I usually add the veggies to the meat as I cook it. But I sometimes give her raw veggies. She loves them too. Often times when you change a dog’s diet, it does upset their system. Sometimes you can persist and they will get better. But why put her through that?
