  • 16oz Ground chicken
  • 1/3cup Long grain white or brown rice
  • 1/3cup Mixed vegetables
  • 5tsp Salmon oil
  • 2 tablets of canine multivitamin
  • 1tsp Calcium carbonate
  • 5tsp salt
  • One-half tablet Choline bitartrate

How To Make It

  1. Pan fry all of the ground chicken and drain the fat after it’s done.
  2. Cook rice.
  3. Steam the veggies.
  4. Mix all ingredients together.
  5. Serve.

NOTE: If you are adding canine multivitamin, make sure you give it to your dog separately. The multivitamin tablets are not added to the food that is cooked or reheated because vitamin B will be destroyed that way. You can add it as the last step, or give it as a separate supplement on a daily basis (about one-half tablet for dogs under 20-pounds and 1-2 tablets for dogs over 20 pounds).

Great recipe! Will be sharing this with my neighbor who owns a dog. I’m allergic to fur animals so I can’t have pets. I just enjoy watching these lovely creatures from a distance.
