Part of advertising spin about why we need to feed our dogs commercially made pet food is because it is 'balanced and complete' and most vets will say (rightly) that dogs have different needs to humans and you can't be sure that food you make will be 'balanced and complete'.
Congratulations, you’re already thinking like us here at Wellbeing for Dogs – you want to feed your dogbetter food. This journey started with the same determination for us; to make a nutritionally complete meal for dogs using human food and keeping its very nature of looking and being like a meal.
A meal exactly like you would make yourself, for yourself – only we wanted it to be everything that a dog needs.
I cook my dogs meals and as she is a fussy eater I am concerned that if I sprinkle Wellbeing Essentials on her food she wont eat her meal - so can I actually cook the Wellbeing Essentials product without ruining the vital nutrients & also can I coat her meat/chicken with it & grill it?
The Internet is full of “don’t kill your dog this Christmas” – ‘clickbait’ filling us with fear. Apart from the obvious, don’t eat Santa or the presents under the tree, or the tree for that matter, the normal cautions apply.
Breakfast for dogs is, to me, the easiest meal. Mainly because it doesn’t need to be complicated, and let's face it - who has time through the week to make breakfast for ourselves, much less the fur kids?!
My way of thinking, first of all, is that this is a little meal - usually half or less of what they have for dinner - and I focus on a protein source more than carbs or vegetables.
A friend recently was house-sitting a gorgeous Spoodle named Matilda and neither Matlida’s owner nor my friend cook for themselves, preferring to either eat out or buy prepared food. Money isn’t an issue, this little dog previously had Wellbeing Meals (until I stopped making them) and she is dearly loved. So what does the dog get fed now?
Chicken soup is not only good for the soul, but it is also good for the body too and it's goodness is built on the depth and quality of the stock. Whether for sick dogs or sick humans, chicken soup does wonders.
Eggs seem to be one of those questions that dog lovers aren’t clear about whether to include or not in their dog’s dinner bowl. So let me assure you, eggs are great for dogs! They are a relatively inexpensive source of high-quality protein, rich in good fats, vitamins, and nutrients.
I nearly lost my special little Moo. It was a terrible moment, a piece of chicken cartilage was caught in his throat. He couldn’t move it, couldn’t breathe. I vaguely knew the Heimlich manoeuvre for humans. How to apply this to a little 5 kilo poodle?
When will I ever learn? How much is too much fat? Recently we had roast chicken for dinner, with roast carrots, sweet potato, broccoli and potato. The next day, both poodles had upset tums. Beanie didn’t want breakfast and just wanted to eat grass, Sparky had the runs, more poo, and more poo!
My question to you is I recently cooked salmon, cheese and bacon filo parcels with veges for dinner and I made a separate serve for Ruby (with less bacon, cheese and only small puff of canola on the filo) with Wellbeing Essentials on top.
