Hi Reillys Mom here
...Yesterday I came across a utube video by Leonard Rappaport making his "famous" Georgies Meatloaf for dogs...It was a very simple recipe and for approx. $35.00 yielded 2 months of food for his dog "georgie".Turkey,chopped beef, veggies,fruit...all depends on the size of your dog. Interesting to watch and even seems like a good healthy food for the dogs. So, if interested in seeing it, google Georgies Meatloaf for dogs and the video will come up.
I am thinking about trying it. Right now I use THK food for about 2 years now and my dog loves it....but I would like to change and mix it up a bit. Let me know what you think. Very interested to hear opinions before I try and make it. Also thinking of Zikipeak for one meal in the am and THK in the pm. And the meatloaf am and thk pm etc. Any problem with that? My dog, Reilly, is very healthy and I want to keep him that way. Thanks for any input on this recipe...enjoy the video...he's fun to watch make the meatloaves.....
New Information.. I just was reading the Dr. Karen Becker (Mercola.com-Pets) newsletter. She has updated 13 pet food rankings, her first in 5 years from the worst to the best. and the "homemade foods" category was spot on in mentioning that meat and veggies are not enough in a homemade food, that is considered unhealthy homemade food. It needs vitamins and minerals etc. Your can read the entire
article on Mercola.com. There is input from Steve Brown, nutritional food expert for dogs. Just a click on the blue areas in each step of
the article for really good information on every diet imaginable we feed our pets, from raw to kibble and in between. So, Georgies Meatloaf diet needs the correct vitamins and minerals suggested by Dr. Becker and Steve Brown to be a good homemade food. Just thought many
would be interested in seeing what category ranking the food you are feeding your dog lists -Best 1 thru 13 Worse. No brand names are listed, just types of food. Hope you enjoy the information. Dr. Becker has wonderful videos to check everything for the health of your dog on the Mercola.com site under Pets column.
