Dr. Judy’s Jambalaya© for Dogs
This recipe is featured in Real Pet Food Matters
This recipe is courtesy of Dr. Judy Morgan
Note from Dr. Morgan: Dogs will eat approximately 2-3% of their body weight daily. For the jambalaya, this translates into approximately 237 ml (1 cup) for every 13.6 kilos (30 pounds). However, the amount to feed your pet varies according to breed, age, weight, exercise level, general health, and other factors. It is important to work with a holistic veterinarian or pet food therapist to determine the proper amount to feed your pet.
- 710 ml (3 cups) mix organic, locally sourced broccoli, asparagus, green beans, carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach and/or kale

- 1 organic apple, core and seeds removed
- 2 hard-boiled eggs, shells intact
- .45 kg (1 pound) ground, pasture-raised beef, beef heart and liver
