6 cups water
3 carrots diced
1 sweet potato, peeled, diced
2 cups cooked brown rice

Combine the lamb and water in a medium saucepan and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove lamb and cool before removing meat from the bone. Discard the bone and return the lamb to the pot with the remaining ingredients. Return to a simmer and cook until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Cool and mash before serving. Freeze in serving portions and defrost as needed.

Salmon Brownie Treats

3 cloves garlic
3 cups spelt, oat or quinoa flour .

Pre-heat oven to 350F degrees. Combine salmon and garlic in a food processor and pulse to combine. Add the flour and continue to pulse until a ball of dough forms.

DALE B........could you please list the measurements for the weekly recipe that you feed your dogs? and what is the serving size per dog of this meal? and one more question.....when you cook it in the pot, what is it cooked in? oil? water? Thanks.....I have a dog with skin allergies and I have not yet found a diet that works for her....i've been using IAM's for several years but I had no idea what actually was in the store bought dog foods other than what they tell you on the nutrition box. I'm hoping that a better diet will improve her skin and coat. Thank you

Nat, You are right, garlic is on the list (ASPCA & of foods not to feed your dog. But, a little used for flavoring is not harmful. I found this out because parent company (Doctors. Foster & Smith) has a little garlic in their food even though it's on their list of food not to feed your dog. I emailed them and they told me a little garlic is not harmful.

I have been cooking for my 8 dogs for the past 5 years and their health is amazing. Each week in a very large pot I cook:
brown rice, lentils, oatmeal, 2 cans of wild salmon, chicken, 18 eggs, ground up egg shells (calcium), broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, bananas, blueberries and olive oil.

And we sell deer antlers- my Boston is crazy about his. He gets minerals while he's eating and it leaves no mess for me. Lasts a LOT longer than his chew toys
