OMG, this is the best. I have tried everything, every premium 2-3 dollar a can dog food and $12 Stella and Chewy's freeze dried. Not a nibble. She loves this recipe. Thanks Chef Porkie. She needs to loss weight due to bilateral hip dysplexia, she has trouble walking. Then I had to feed her fattening prescription dog food (by hand) for 4 months due to bladder stones.

Our disabled mini poodle needs to lose the 5 lbs she put on. This is a life saver.

And here is the real kicker....we like it too! So it is also our dinner sometimes. (We need low sodium, low cal food).

Thanks again....we will let you know about any weight lost.

Update July 2009 - Many, many thanks to you Chef Porkpie. We just came from the vet and after about 3 months on this diet, my dog has lost 4 pounds which is a lot of weight for a dog. She is back in the acceptable range for her breed. The vet was surprised by this magnificent weight loss so I told her it was because of your recipe. As my dog is bigger than yours I increase the portion of rice to about 1/3 C with 2 tbsp kibble. For anyone who has an over weight dog...this really does work, and the dog loves it! I swear she knows when I am making a batch! Sometimes I just use fresh veggies, chop them small and cook them in the microwave til tender. My dog likes little bits of broccoli too so I throw that in as well. Anyways, thank you so much for sharing your recipe! March 2009 -My chubby little beagle thought this was great (slurp!) My dog is getting heavy so I thought I would try this recipe to see if she loses weight. I checked the prices of the "diet" dog food at the pet store and just couldn't believe how much it was - yikes! I will let you know if she loses anything. Thanks for posting!

My picky Chloe loves this dish. I made it for the second time today and doubled the recipe to freeze. Chloe was also a bit on the chunky side and lost 2lbs (bringing her back to her normal weight) in two weeks. Tee

All 3 of my girls love this recipe and they are starting to slim down a little bit. Thank you so much!

I have been feeding this to my 2 pugs and my bichon ever since all the pet food recalls. Their coats are so healthy and shiny! Also, they have each lost about a pound since starting! I do add some ground beef (including the drippings) and some olive oil to the mix to help them not lose weight too quickly (which I was advised to do by our vet). A wonderful receipe!

Thank you so much. Have 2 small dog people and this is a really good mix of food. I also vary the veggies and they love beets and lentels in there. Again thank you. This is the last recipe I will everr have to use.
