A Great Raw Food Diet for a Dog or Cat

A Great Raw Food Diet - Dog/Cat


1. Raw, naturally raised (without hormones and antibiotics), ground turkey; and whole, ground chicken (about 1/3 of the diet)
2. Raw, pureed organic carrots, cabbage, kale, celery and apples (in blender or food processor with water until baby food texture.) Note: Remove apples and other fruit if your dog has an ailing pancreas, too much sugar for them.(about 1/3 of the diet)
3. Raw, organic egg yolks; THE YOLKS MUST BE RAW. (figure 1/2 yolk to 1 full yolk per day) Keep the egg whites for you and your family but please don't give them to your dog they mess with their biotin absorption.
4. Ground, organic flax, pumpkin and sesame seeds (flax only for the cat)(handful is fine per day)

SUPPLEMENTS: [approx. 1/3 of the diet by volume] 

· Organic, cold pressed flax seed oil 
· Cold-pressed olive oil (usually organic).
· Fish oil  
· Lecithin granules (non-gmo by NOW brand). 
· Solgar brewer’s yeast (debittered, & grown on sugar beets). 
· Y.S. Organic Bee Farms royal jelly, bee pollen, & propolis, 
· Organic kelp powder. 
· Organic dandelion root powder. 
· Organic alfalfa leaf powder 
· Chlorophyll liquid or capsules—the cat gets organic spirulina powder instead of the chlorophyll that the dogs get; spirulina is high in chlorophyll and cats are crazy about it 
· Garlic oil gel-caps for dogs. The cat gets a bit of the powder from a capsule of Kyolic aged, deodorized, organic garlic · MSM, glucosamine, and chondroitin for the German Shepherds.  
· For Cats, 1/4 to 1/2 a capsule of Taurine to the mix for the day (depending on the size of the cat). This is crucial because cats have been known to be deficient in Taurine if it is not specifically added to their food.

Lots of organic celery sticks; organic cabbage leaves; diced organic carrots; organic, raw greens (usually dandelion roots [dried or fresh], parsley stems or spinach leaves).

Distilled water, then “replace” the lost minerals by adding drops of Concentrace, by Trace Minerals Research, which come from the sea water from the clean side of the Great Salt Lake (minus the salt).
**This menu is a suggestion of a raw diet that has worked personally for my dogs and many others and is highly recommended when rehabilitating dogs who suffer from severe allergies, poisoning, or poor immune systems.  If you have an emergency situation please seek the advice of your veterinarian.
