I am feeding my poodles duck and potato dry food. I have one that scratches alot. I am wondering if I should switch his food. I have read on this board that some dogs are allergic to grains. What is a good dry food that I can try?
Crock pot chicken
Maybe you all have this already, but will post anyway. I don't add much to my dogs diet other than the quality food they are already on. But, when my standard Ellie was ill with severe ear infections and other issues, (thats a whole other thread), her derm vet put her on a prescrition food, some of which was canned. Expensive! Anyway, during mealtime my other standard Luke would stand and look at his bowl like, "hey, I'm not eating until I get some of that good stuff too!" Can't blame him. He really felt shafted. So I made crock pot chicken for him, and froze muffin cup portions that I then could pull out to add to his food at meal time. Helped us get over the food envy hump.
1 or 2chickens, depending on the size of your crockpot
enough water to completely cover all the chicken!
Let cook for 24 hours, bones and all! It will mush down to nothing.
I threw in a couple cups of veggies the last few hour.
Mash all together, yes bones too, and cool then store how you wish. I made up a huge batch so I wouldn't have to make it for quite a while.
*be sure to let your family know its for the dogs, because it smells just like supper! Yum!
spoowhisperer: Thanks for the easy-peesie crockpot chicken recipe and the great idea of freezing it in the muffin tins! This is going to make life so easy!!! And Chagall so happy, which is of course all that really matters. Please feel free to post easy menu ideas for humans too (he he!!)
