kidney disease in dogs

How Boomie Got Better

This is a true story I like to call Boomie’s Turnaround.

Boomie, seen here, is a 10-year old Entlebucher Mountain Dog, loved by Cynthia and Mike from Massachusetts. In early 2019, Cynthia contacted me with concern about Boomie’s health. Recent lab tests, including bloodwork and urine tests, had revealed high levels of protein – Cynthia’s veterinarian became concerned about early stage kidney disease. Cynthia asked me about a recipe to make for Boomie.

How Much Food Should I Give My Dog?

When changing diets, how much to feed is often a question for dog parents.  Homemade is a different from commercial in seemingly endless ways, including the logistical difference of serving sizes. Commercial food generally has serving suggestions on the label.  It is easy to get accustomed to the new feeding guidelines though, and before you know it you will be serving your dog just the right amount of homemade.

Fish and Kale Tacos Without the Spices – Homemade Dog Food Ideas

One of my goals in teaching people how to cook is to make it simple. One way to do this is to make extra of what you are making for yourself, and then save some for your dog. Of course, this only applies to certain kinds of food. It does not apply to foods that are overly fatty, fried, spicy, sweet or otherwise inappropriate for dogs. It DOES apply to fresh meats, vegetables and other dog friendly ingredients.
