Canine Meal Prep Ideas:
10 Day Meal Plan for our 1 year old Lab.
This receipe includes three (3) different proteins.
- Meaty bones - Dogs and cats alike, need to rip, tear and chew to get the full benefit of raw meaty bones. They must be big enough to be chewed and crunched, but not swallowed whole.
- Feeding meaty bones can slow down how quickly the food is being consumed, leaving our animals more satisfied and feeling full.
- Always give Raw Meaty Bones (RMB) under supervision.
- Never feed COOKED BONES
- Gullet [BOVINE CARTILAGE] is the esophagus and has anti-inflammatory agent, believed to ease the symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
- Our Ground Beef Organs is an even mix of ground beef heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, and gullet/trachea. This is a good source of Protein, Thiamin, Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, Phosphorus and Copper, and a very good source of Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B12, Iron and Selenium.
- The Ground Beef/Organs/Bones/Tripe is my go to for QUICK and EASY meals. We grind this to be approximately 82% meat [to include muscle meat (73%), heart (2%), lung (2%), gullet (2%) and tripe (3%)], 9% bone, and 9% organ [liver and kidneys]. Keeping the blend as close to what our creator intended as possible. This food is low in Sodium. It is also a good source of Vitamin B6, Phosphorus, Zinc and Selenium, and a very good source of Protein and Vitamin B12.
- Meaty Goat Bones are a must for a growing and always chewing 6 month out puppy!
- Our Ground Atlantic Salmon, includes head and bones. Good source of omega 3's. It is also a good source of Thiamin, Vitamin B6 and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Protein, Niacin, Vitamin B12 and Selenium.
- Semi Boneless Quail are one of our Lab's favorites. These birds are classified as seconds. During the plucking process to remove feathers a leg or wing may get pulled off but the meat is perfectly fine. It is also a good source of Niacin, Vitamin B6, Iron, Phosphorus, Copper and Selenium, and a very good source of Protein.
I also like including raw egg at meal time which is a great protein boost, along with a cold water fish oil for Omega-3 fatty acids and GLM powder.
Great article on feeding eggs:
Pyrex dishes hold roughly 14 oz, which is two meals for our Lab, who is currently eating 3 meals a day, 7oz per meal. Rem is 16 weeks old. I will also include whole prey through the week and our Ground Duck/Bones/Organs to change it up a bit.
