Adult Low Salt & Mineral Dog Food

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Chicagopm

Both (!) of my girls have had to have surgery to remove bladder stones. I asked their vet for a recipe that I can make for them that I could make instead of buying the high priced prescription dog food. This is the recipe she gave me. This recipe is for the daily feed of a 40 pound dog. I wasn't able to add two ingredients to the list so please see the directions! This freezes very well. I make enough for the week, freeze it in microwavable containers defrost/heat as needed. Both of my girls love this I'm so lucky that my (their) vet was able to find this recipe for us!

Chi-town and krizzikate, Thank you for these ideas -- I add ginseng and spirulina to the mix -- and to crush eggshell -- this is superb!! I add garlic and brewers yeast to help keep bugs away also. Ooh -- to keep down the flea tic problems out here in AZ, I even use that last set of herbs add cinnamon to get pet and human pest control carpet / room freshener effect. The last three powders mix up reduce the insect situation and make the room smell delicious. Thanks again on this, eh? willeyes
