    Basic Dog Broth Healthy Dog Treat Recipes

    Ingredients

    • 1 ½ kilos meaty Beef bones
    • ½ cup water
    • 1 cup baby cabbage chopped
    • 1 cup celery chopped
    • 1 cup carrots chopped
    • ¼ cup tomato paste or blended tomatoes (about 3 – 4 tomatoes)
    • 4 strings parsley
    • salt
    • 2 liters

    Directions

    Put the Beef bones in a big roasting pan and roast them during 1 hour. Turn them every so often so they brown on all sides. Once done, drain out the fat.

    Put the roaster on the stove top burner and turn the stove on at medium heat. Add in ½ cup of water and loosen up the meat from roaster. Make sure to loosen all the browned bits left on the roaster. Keep all these drippings.

    In a large pot, heat up the oil over medium heat. Add in the baby cabbage , celery, and the carrots, cook the baby cabbage too until they are transparent, make sure to stir constantly. Add in the roasted Beef bones, the reserved dripping from the roaster, tomato paste, parsley, salt, and the water.

    Bring all these ingredients to a boil over high heat and let it simmer covered for 2 hours.

    To use as a broth, strain the whole mixture, let it cool, and refrigerate. Take off any fat from the surface and either refrigerate this or freeze it.

    To make soup, take out the Beef bones, and pour the vegetables over some kibbles.

    Chicken and Kibble Healthy Dog Treat Recipes

    Ingredients

    • 3 to 4 Chicken breasts (no bone, no skin)
    • 1 1/2 cups non-sticky rice (we use basmati)

    Directions

    Fully cook chicken breasts. Cut into tip of the finger size pieces. Reserve the juice for the first meal. Steam the rice until fully cooked. Combine the Chicken and rice. Add a pinch of salt if you didn't already salt the rice. Add any other seasoning your dog likes.

    When ready to feed the dogs, combine half their recommended kibble with sufficient Chicken/rice mixture to make up about 1/3 their ration. Make up the rest with fat free cottage cheese.

    This makes a very low fat diet, typically less than 10%. You can add vegetable fats or fish oil to improve vitamin absorption, but do be sparing. In the first batch of food, add the cooking juices from the Chicken to the kibble.

    This recipe makes enough food for several feedings, so don't put the Chicken drippings in the storage container: it will only hasten spoilage. Also, don't leave the mix down: it will spoil very fast.
