I have been toying with the idea of making my animals food for quite some time. Dry and wet food costs are going up considerably, and I don’t like the idea of feeding processed foods every day twice a day. It just doesn’t sit well with me, so I bought the book, Dr. Becker’s Real Food for Healthy Dogs and Cats Simple Homemade Food. It has a huge amount of information and recipes.
I think everyone will adapt to this pretty easily, except my Mr. Myagi-Pillowfluff Beefy. He tends to not like change. He liked wet food for awhile and we thought, wet food is so much better than dry we’ll just phase out the dry. I’m pretty sure the phrase, Awww Hell No, went through his head because he started bullying my Mini. Mini the Rott/Shep mix that weighs 90lbs and routinely kills squirrels and opossums for shits and giggles. Now, Mini loves her Mr. Myagi and hates the idea of getting yelled at. Anytime Myagi tried bullying her, she would stand up and look at me, as if to say, “you saw that right?”, so I am a little worried that my Mr. Myagi will try his shinanagans again. He’s 21lbs of power.
So back to the book, not only do you get recipes, but they lay out the supplement plan for you too. Since chances are you will not be killing the food yourself and there for able to give them every part that has the important nutrients in it-they do need supplements.
I’ll keep you updated 🙂
Oh and I also made yummy gluten-free, refined sugar free pumpkin muffins yesterday, sooooo good. I’ll post the recipe once I have it perfected. Happy Thursday!
