Pet Food Recipe Friday: Cold Winter Lamb Recipe

From time to time we will be looking into Dr. John Basko’s book Fresh Food & Ancient Wisdom, 20111020-084904.jpgPreparing Healthy Meals for Your Dogs. Dr Basko is one of the DrShowMore 2011 calendar vets.

His book is very informative, and should really be studied cover to cover. It goes deeply into detail about every type of dog and the nutritional steps needed to heal them. For today, with the damp weather coming in, and the cold not too far away, let’s take a look at something nice for your older dog. ~ MASH Geek

Cold Winter Lamb Recipe

2 cups chopped chicken or lamb meat
2 cups white rice
2 cups chopped cabbage
1 cup beets or radish
1/4 cup chicken fat (not needed if using lamb)
3 pieces shitake (dried)
3 cloves garlic
1 thumb-piece size ginger

In a large stew pot, heat chicken fat, garlic, ginger, and chicken or lamb on high heat for five minutes. Add beets shitake and rice to pot, then cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer (low), cover pot, and cook for one hour. Stir well every 10-15 minutes.

Because arthritis problems flare up when the weather turns cold, windy or rainy, I recommend including the following “warming” foods into your dog’s diet. These foods are usually included in my recipes because they tend to counteract the environmental effects on the dogs body during harsh climactic conditions.
