Lucy's new food

Lucy has had an upset stomach since Friday, today's Sunday. She had loose stools and attempts with no "outcome."
The "medically trained veterinarian" that I am, decided that I am going to make Lucys meals from now on! I think that I can do a better job than some dog food company, that mass produces product, with who knows what in it.

I did some research online and determined the followed.
I found that Ground Turkey, Beef, Pork, Ham, Lamb and Chicken are the best meats. (Kinda Obvious.)
Vegetables; Carrots, Green Beans, Potatoes, Corn... (I need to look into more Veggie options)
For Diarrhea, 1-2 cups white or brown Rice.
Cooked Rolled Oats for fiber (instead of rice.)
Scrambled Egg for protein.
Any flea problems, add Garlic Powder *I need to look into this. I read garlic was bad for dogs...
One Tip I found was to fine chop the veggies because dogs don't break down vegetables as slow as humans, aka they pass them too fast.

Using the above, I created the below recipe.

I Love Lurkey
  • 1lb. Ground Turkey
  • 4 Chicken Livers
  • 5 Large Carrots; peeled, cut and boiled
  • 20-30 Green Beans; cut and boiled
  • 1 cup Brown Rice
Directions: In Sauce Pan brown Turkey and at the same time, in a medium pot boil Livers. In a separate pot; boil Carrots and Green Beans for 10-15 minutes then add Brown Rice to water for 5-10 minutes. In a food processor, Mix Turkey and Livers, pour into bowl. Mix in food processor; Carrots, Green Beans and Rice. Mix all ingredients together.

EXTRA: I added a slice of bacon and 1 tablespoon of bacon grease, leftover from breakfast.

Verdict: Lucy Loved It!
