I had heard rumors of possible pet food contamination long before it was made public and began changing our dogs diet at that time. Little did I know then just how serious it was. Nutrition was very important to me as one of our dogs was 14 years old at the time with Cushings Disease and lived to 18 years old, our other was 2 years old with Epilepsy and still with us at 6 years old. I wanted the healthiest diet I could provide for them. I did extensive research on the internet and adapted that information to best suit our dogs needs and our lifestyle (which at the time included boating and RV’ing), which turned out to be far easier than I would have thought possible. My overall considerations were healthy nutritious meals, and variety of foods that they would enjoy eating. Before manufactured pet food was readily available everywhere, we would share what we ate “Natural Foods”, as it was all that was available at the time. This book is being written on my knowledge and experience as a pet “mom” only, to help others that may want to feed their dog a healthier diet. Our four legged “children” are a very important part of our families.

The recipes in this book can be adapted to your dogs’ size, breed and needs. I often make these recipes in advance, place in zip lock bags by portion size and freeze until I am ready to use them, just thaw, heat and serve. This way they still get variety when I am busy.

A dogs daily food intake is generally 2 – 3 % of his weight, however some dogs are more energetic and require more food while others require less.

The benefits of a Natural diet:
Consuming very few preservatives, dyes & chemicals., while eating a much higher quality of nutrients.
