Vet recommened Homemade Canine Cancer Food
« on: January 14, 2010, 12:13:50 PM »
Here's the recipe Dr. Selting gave me.  It is supposed to mimic the Hill's Canine n/d canned food. This recipe makes enough food for 3 days for a 60 lb dog

2 lb.Lean ground beef, fat drained
2 2/3 cups cooked rice
2/3 lb. beef liver
9 Tbls. Vegetable oil
18 1000 mg fish oil capsules
6.6 grams calcium carbonate (Tums work. Each regular Tums has .5 g, Tums Extra has 1.0g)
1 1/2 tsp dicalcium phosphate or bone meal
2/3 tsp. Salt substitute (potassium cloride)

Directions:
Cook the rice with salt substitute added to the water.  Cook the ground beef and drain the fat.  Cook the liver and dice or finely chop into small pieces.  Pulverize the calcium carbonate and vitamin/mineral tabliets.  Mix the vegetable oil, fish oil (break open the capsules) and supplements with the rice and then add the cooked ground beef and liver.  Mix well, cover and refrigerate.  Feed approximately one third of this mixture each day to a 50-60 pound dog.  Palatability will be increased if the daily portion is heated to approximately body temperature.

Thanks Sue - That is VERY similar to what I make...I use chicken alot too, or ground turkey.  I don't add a salt substitute, is that supposed to be beneficial?
I add ground egg shells for the calcium.  I also add garlic, but then I add garlic to everything I make for them, and add green beans and chopped spinach.  Tried the broccolli, but that made my airspace smell horribly!

When I first got this recipe I received it from a HV that was trying to help me regulate Ty's :angel: insulin intake.  It worked, along with their stuff that I sprinkled on it (I think that was mostly cinnamon)

Would this be a good diet for a puppy?

NO, it is way to rich for a puppy's tummy. 

This diet, altho I take issue with a bit of it, is for dogs that have been diagnosed with cancer.  A cancer diet should be HIGH Fat & Protien and NO grains or carbohydrates.

My holistic vet told me high protin and no carbs. Sugar is also to be avoided. I meant to ask her about using lentels in their food. The are full of protin. I was also reading that they were good for inflammation in the intestens.
