Jean in PA - Favorite Easter Recipe
Hi Nancy and furry assistants. I hope everyone is enjoying the springtime
finally. In response to Alice in March 24th letter asking about dog food
recipes. All of us animal lovers want only the best for our furry friends.
If I might I would like to resort to a bit of history for a moment. Prior
to right after WWII there wasn't much "dog food" on the grocery shelves
and no dry food. Canned pet food had existed since right after WWI when
they needed to purge the armed forces of unneeded horses and mules and
biscuits had existed since the late 1800's but the concept of dried
pellets was invented only about 50 years ago. With a booming economy
manufacturers created a market for dry foods. It was a way to use their
less than perfect foods and leftovers to create a convenient way for
people to feed their animals. I used to host chats in the dog community on
AOL and we had many avid dog lovers and breeders in this community and a
great many of them preferred to feed their dogs natural foods aka raw
meats, fruits and veggies. They all reported fewer allergies, shinier
coats, more energy and in general better health of their animals. I had a
little rescue dog at the time who had terrible skin allergies and after
switching to a natural diet his allergies disappeared and for the first
time in his life he wasn't licking and scratching and rubbing all the time
so I and he loved it. :) The diet is called BARF diet and though that
sounds gross it is a great diet in my humble opinion. If you are
interested here is a link to one site but any search engine if you type in
BARF diet it will bring up many.

Chicken Liver Cat Food
I then scoop the food with an ice cream scoop, and
put the scoops in a flat plastic container with a lid. This can be frozen
and only 1 scoop at a time removed to be thawed.
Hi Nancy, Regarding pet food recipes:
Turkey Gobblers (Pet Treats)
(this website had Tigger Treats, Lean Turkey
Cuisine, and Long Liver Tidbits on 1/26/2007
Nancy, here is a great TNT dog food
recipe for your new pet food page, from About.com that I received in my
latest Newsletter from them.
In very large mixing bowl, combine ground beef and cottage cheese; blend well. Add eggs, milk powder, and wheat germ and mix. Then add the crumbled bread, oatmeal, and brown rice and mix well.
Divide among ten small (5-1/2" x 3-1/2") aluminum loaf pans. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. Cool at room temperature for 1 hour, then promptly refrigerate. This food is perishable, so don't store it in the fridge longer than three days.
We always froze all but one of the loaves. To defrost, let them stand in the refrigerator overnight. Crumble the meatloaf into a bowl, drizzle with some water, and microwave for 20-30 seconds until warm. Make sure the food doesn't have hot spots after microwaving, as your pet will gobble this up!
Make sure to discard any food that has been sitting out for 30 minutes or longer.
