Guarding his "cakes" before we put them in the freezer
Sam is 18 years old this spring. He is a large breed - a flatcoated retriever. It surprises everybody, ourselves included, that Sam has lived to such a ripe old age -- and he's still enjoying an active happy life. We feel it is at least partly because he eats a healthy homemade raw food diet.
SAM'S HEALTHWISE RAWFOOD CAKES
4 cups rice (brown or white)
* This recipe makes approximately 28 (1-cup) balls of raw food. You will end up with more or less depending on the size of your veggies like zucchini and cabbage.
**** You will have to determine how much to feed your pets and what else to feed with this raw food meal. We give Sam 4 ounces of raw meat with each meal -- usually raw ground rabbit or turkey. We have also fed him raw llama meat and raw ground chicken. We also add 1 spoonful of organic yogurt to his meals, to maintain a healthy digestive tract. As well, Sam gets a multiple canine vitamin and 250 mg glucosamine each day.
