COOKING FOR TIKA

April 24, 2019

 

First of all, I would like to apologize for not writing a blog for so long. 

On a happier note, I would like to introduce Tika, the newest member of the Hoof and Paw Family.  Tika is an adult Boston Terrier that I adopted from a local rescue.  She is fitting in nicely and we are working on her manners around other dogs. (She gets a little grumpy with them)

 

 Finally, I am practicing what I preach as well.  I started making a homemade diet for Tika today and it was easy and cost effective!  I was at Walmart and looked at the meat that was on sale for being short dated.  I picked up two packages of ground turkey that were 30% off each.  Then I went to the frozen aisle and picked up a bag of frozen vegetables that consisted of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots.  At home, I cooked the meat and veggies separately (but in the same pot because I hate doing dishes...) so I could take the hand blender to the veggies in case she wasn't a fan and preferred to have them blended.  I cooked up some white rice at the same time and mixed them all together.  Here is the result.

I then used my handy kitchen scale to figure out how much volume she needed at each meal and easy peasy, I put it into separate containers and had enough for 5 days.  I think all in all it cost about $15 and took less than 30 minutes to do.  I added her herbs and a probiotic and she licked the bowl clean!  I still need to order some calcium citrate to balance the diet, but she will be fine without it for a few days. 
It feels great to provide her with such nutritious food in such an easy way.  

If you would like more information on creating a homemade diet for your four-legged friend, I would be happy to help!  Send me a message and we can talk!
