For dogs suffering a variety of ailments and illnesses, this vegetarian dog food has been a saving grace. Testimonies keep pouring in from people whose dogs were quite ill, yet recovered remarkably when they switched to this diet. The recipe is courtesy of Vicky Lynn, founder of †Asians for Humans, Animals and Nature (AHAN). It may look complicated, but really takes very little time–and the results are beyond worthwhile.

ľ cup soy flour or soy milk powder (can substitute with smashed, cooked pinto beans )

1 tbsp soy lecithin
1 tbsp yeast ( optional )
1 tbsp wheat germ
1 tbsp ground sunflower seeds
1/6 tbsp molasses
1 tsp ground flax seed

A note from AHAN: Asians for Humans, Animals and Nature is a San Francisco-based, non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public on animal and environmental welfare.†As we all know the economy is not doing very well. We are receiving more requests for help to take over well-behaved animals that will otherwise be put down. We donít have a shelter, all our animals are in foster homes. If you or anyone you know can help us foster, please visit our site–find a dog with a temperament that you think you can foster, fill out an online application, and indicate that you are interested in fostering that dog in the comment area. Short term or long term are all welcome. It will really make a difference to keep us going. Thank you!
