Cooking With Trooper...


Ok maybe this should be cooking for trooper?

My buddy Trooper doesn't eat dog food - the kind that comes out of a can or bag that is. He eats things like poached or grilled chicken, ground sirloin, no salt French-cut green beans, smashed sweet potatoes. He gets no salt or low-salt dog treats.

Unfortunately he does get some table food as well. Junk food isn't good for us and it's not good for dogs either!

Eventually there will be a pretty good guide to cooking for your pooch in this section... Check back soon!

Until then:

Trooper eats food that you and I could eat. He is 55 pounds give or take 5 pounds - every meal he gets:

1 1/2 Cup Grilled Chicken (Can be boiled or baked) Or grilled sirloin patties broken up
1/4 Cup Sweet Potatoes (This varies depending on his movements)
1 Can No Salt Green Beans (make sure they are no salt)

You need to give them vitamins as well. You can get dog vitamins at your vet's office, Walmart, etc. Make sure they get some supplement.

There are variations to this. Sometimes to mix it up he gets ground sirloin. When using beef try and remove as much fat as possible.

NOTE - Before putting your pet on a natural diet - consult your vet!

Bon Appetit...
