NOT EATING MUCH IN THE FIRST 24-48 HOURS IS NORMAL TO SOOTH A LOOSE STOOL– UP TO 2 WEEKS MAKE A MIXTURE OF ONE CAN OF CANNED PUMPKIN AND ADD 2 TABLESPOONS OF DE (Diatomaceous Earth) You can add to your mixture a can of tuna or beef boulion, ,a few eggs -freeze in ice cube trays – offer 1 to 2 cubes per day for first week – then a few each week for life

Loose stools result from a new environment from stress. Pumpkin helps slow down the bowel and helps avoid dehydration.

Bacon Treats

Grain-Free Bacon Dog Treats

Servings: 50 pieces depending on cookie cutter size

Ingredients

• 1-1/2 coconut flour

• 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter (or almond butter!)

• 5 eggs

• 1/2 cup melted coconut oil

• 1 cup + 2 Tbsp pumpkin puree (no sugar added; can also use sweet potato puree or unsweetened apple sauce)

• 2-3 slices of hormone-free bacon, cooked & chopped

Directions

1 Preheat oven to 350°F.

2 In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well to form a dough.

3 Roll out dough, just slightly under a quarter inch thick.

4 Use a cookie cutter to cut out different shapes and carefully place them onto a lined baking pan. Ball up remaining dough, roll out, cut, and repeat until all dough has been used.

5  Bake for 15-20 minutes, until treats are hard. This cooking time might vary depending on thickness of each treat so keep your eyes on them.

6 Let cool completely before sharing with your pup!

7 Store remaining treats in an airtight container in the fridge. Very important to cool completely before doing this! Otherwise the heat will make the treats soft.

Salmon Pumpkin Treats

GRAIN-FREE SALMON PUMPKIN DOG TREATS

Prep time 15 mins

Cook time 20 mins

Total time 35 mins

 

grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, paleo

Serves: 60+ biscuits

Ingredients

1½ cups coconut flour

1 cup canned wild caught salmon, drained* (I used WholeFoods 365 canned Sockeye Salmon)

½ cup coconut oil, melted, but not hot

½ cup pumpkin puree (you can also use pureed sweet potato or squash)

4 pasture raised eggs

Optional add-ins:

2 teaspoons dried parsley or 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, roughly chopped

Instructions

1 Add all of the ingredients to your food processor. Process until well blended and it easily forms a ball, when you take a little in your hand. If it feels a bit too wet, add just a little more coconut flour, but know that the coconut flour in the dough will absorb as the dough sits.

2 Gently flatten the ball into a disc and place into an airtight container or wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour.

3 Preheat oven to 350ºF and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.

4 Place the dough disc between two pieces of parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out until it is about ⅛ to ¼-inch thick.

5 Using desired cookie cutter shape(s), start cutting and transfer to the prepared baking sheets. Don’t waste any of the dough, use the leftover scraps, roll what’s left into a rope, cut into little nuggets and bake. They make great little tiny bite-sized training treats.

6 Bake 18-20 minutes, until golden brown and hard. It is important that biscuits are completely dried out or they will go bad.

7 If you take them out and as they cool, if they feel moist at all, I recommend placing the biscuits in a single layer on an oven-safe cooling rack, and place into a 200ºF oven for 10-20 minutes, until they are dry, hard, crisp and have no moisture at all.

8 Let cook completely and store in an airtight container for a few weeks.

RECIPE NOTES:

Try adding ⅓ cup finely shredded carrots to the recipe

you can also use approx 1 cup cooked, deboned fresh salmon, flaked in place of the canned salmon

Chicken Biscuits

4-Ingredient Chicken and Biscuits 

• Ready in 30 Minutes or Less • Freezable 

Prep Time

10 min

Cook Time

12-14 min. (plus cooling)

Total Time

10 minutes

Yields

About 4 dozen

Ingredients

2 cups chopped, cooked chicken (see note)

2 cups instant potato powder

1 5.3-ounce container nonfat plain Greek yogurt

3/4 cup water

1 egg, lightly beaten

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients, stirring until thoroughly incorporated. Batter will be very thick and sticky.

Drop batter by level tablespoons onto parchment-lined baking sheets. (Because these dog biscuits spread very little during baking, I crowd them together more than typical cookies, and get all of them onto 2 baking sheets.) Using the back of a spoon, flatten the dog treats slightly.

Bake for 12-14 minutes, until lightly golden brown.

Cool completely on wire racks. Store in refrigerator or (for longer storage) in zippered freezer bags in freezer (thaw before serving).


Yeast Infections

Yeast is a problem after antibiotics or lots of swimming.....

About Yeast

Infection


Fungus


Candida


Yeast infections are an overgrowth of yeast caused by fungal infection. If yeast overgrowth is not treated, the dog will likely develop additional health problems triggered by the infection. Apple cider vinegar and yogurt are both inexpensive cures easy to administer at home. Apple cider vinegar retards the growth of "bad" bacteria while yogurt with lactobacillus acidophilus is a type of probiotic that will fortify your dog's body with "good" bacteria.

Before beginning, understand that a yeast infection will limit your dog's quality of life. Always consult a vet to establish whether your home remedy is the most appropriate option. Make an appointment with your vet if the home remedy he recommends does not eliminate your pet's yeast infection. The vet will likely prescribe some medications to treat and cure his infection.



Ear Infection

CAUTION: Be careful when using the oral syringe to flush your dog's ears. Too much solution in the ear will cause her pain and create further ear problems. Check with your veterinarian before beginning any home treatments for yeast infections.


Coconut

Oil in Ears


USE COCONUT OIL AFTER YOU CLEAN EARS WITH APPLE CIDER VINEGAR.

Caprylic acid, a nutritional supplement derived from coconut oil, kills candida cells. ... The recommended dose is at least 1 teaspoon coconut oil per 10 pounds of body weight, or 1 tablespoon per 30 pounds. Dogs with candidiasis may need more, especially in the early stages of treatment.


Yogurt

Step 3- Feed yogurt once every day as a treatment. Continue to feed it as a preventative after she no longer has a yeast infection.
