Diet 1 to try to figure out if it’s Food Allergies, from Dr. Pitcairn

4 cups brown rice
3 pounds (6 cups) raw lamb or mutton
2 ½ tbl bone meal
2 tbl veg oil (safflower, sunflower evening primrose, borage) [I use olive or flax seed]
Complete daily vitamin-mineral supplement, for dogs without yeast
Vitamin C in the form of sodium ascorbate (give 500 milligrams daily)

Bring 8 cups filtered or spring water to a boil, add the rice, cover and simmer for 40 minutes

Meanwhile, trim any excess fat off the lamb or mutton (if you wish to have a lower fat diet)
Chop or grind the meat. When the rice is done, thoroughly mix all ingredients except the vitamin and C, add these at the time of feeding. (This is leaving the meat, more or less raw. I wait until the rice is about ¾ done then add my meat and veggies right into the same pot and sort of steam the meat for the remaining 10 minutes so the meat is still on the rare side but not raw)

Recipe is approx. 27% protein, 24% fat and 47% carbs. The amount of calcium provided by the bone meal=just over 1 gram (1100 mg)

Substitutes: Instead of rice, you can use 4 cups of millet (cooked for 20-30 minutes with 12 cups of water) OR
8 cups of dry oats (cooked for 10 minutes with 14-16 cups of water)
Cooked grains should be soft and mushy. For a higher protein feed, reduce grain items and increase meat)
Yield: 5,600 calories, about 3-4 days, freeze what cannot be eaten in 3 days
[I do higher protein than grains]

Diet 2 for Allergies, from Dr. Pitcairn
6 cups millet
3 pounds (6 cups) raw turkey
2 ½ tbl bone meal
2 tbl veg oil (safflower, sunflower evening primrose, borage) [I use olive or flax seed]
Complete daily vitamin-mineral supplement, for dogs without yeast
Vitamin C in the form of sodium ascorbate (give 500 milligrams daily)
(Follow as above)
Yield 5,900 calories)

Dr. Pitcairn goes on to say: To give this diet an adequate chance, keep your dog on it for at least two months – be strict about it. If the problem clears up or improves, slowly reintroduce the omitted foods one at a time to find out which one or ones are causing the problem.

If your pet’s condition has not improved after a couple months on a restricted diet, the cause may not be food allergy. Bear in mind that allergies can be triggered by a variety of environmental factors such as chlorine and other contaminants in water, household cleaning chemicals, release of gases of formaldehyde and other chemicals from furniture and buildings, synthetic carpets and upholstery, plastic food bowls, certain plants or grasses, regularly administered drugs like heartworm preventive medications or flea chemicals and of course, flea bites themselves. Also, while many people have heard that they can be allergic to their pets, few realize that their pets can be allergic to them. (228-9, Pitcairn, Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats)
Diet recommended for epileptic dogs by the Guardian Angels site. We've been feeding California Natural because of Quinn's food allergies, but now I'm reading that rosemary may have some connection to seizures, and the CN formula I've been using contains rosemary. I've been thinking about home cooking for a while, and this is the push I needed.

Healthy Adult Diet - Crock Pot recipe

4 halved boneless, skinless chicken breasts - frozen (use any reputable brand that you would feed your human family). They are usually around $8.00 for a package of 10. Or you can use 4 cups frozen fish, or 4 cups frozen lean ground meat (about 2 lbs).

1 cup zucchini sliced thickly
1 cup sliced carrots sliced thickly
1 cup string beans cut up
1/2 cup white potato cut in 2" pieces
1/2 cup yam or sweet potato cut in 2" pieces

Combine all ingredients (leave chicken breasts frozen) in crock pot along with 4 cups of water. Put crock pot on "Low" setting and cook all day while you're at work or all night while you're sleeping, approximately 8 hours or until everything is tender. After the mixture is cooked, put it in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, skim as much of the fat off the top as you can with a spoon. Then you can mix and mash everything together so that the meat and veggies are well blended together. (If your crock pot has a removable liner, put the whole thing in the fridge - if not, you can transfer the cooked food to another container to sit overnight.) Once you have mixed everything together well, you should refrigerate the food - either in the container you have it in or divided up into individual meals. Do not leave it in the refrigerator for longer than three days - if you have more than you will use in three days, please freeze the extra portions. Be sure to reheat each meal in a microwave or at least bring it to room temperature.

A Fun Cool Summer Treat for Dogs 

Three 6 ounce Containers of Plain, Low-Fat Yogurt
1/2 Cup of Peanut Butter (Low Sodium)
1 Four Ounce Jar of Banana Baby Food
1 Tablespoon of Honey
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients. Blend
well. Pour mixture into small cups (I used Dixie
Cups). Place dog bone in mixture (to serve as the
handle). Freeze. Once frozen, peel away paper cup
and serve outside! Yummy! or should I say Woofies! ;o)

I would use real bananas and skip the honey, but you could mix it up with many different ingredients. The cookie and the ice will keep them cool and busy.
