cooking for the pup
I am surprised at how easy it may actually be. She's eating darned well, I might add. Recipes abound online and in books. We purchased organic supplements from our favorite high-end pet supply and service store in town and ordered what they didn't have from Amazon.
While Coco has several allergies, she doesn't seem to have a gluten problem. Since I do, she is gluten-free as well. I get welts just handling wheat. She is allergic to dairy products, so that was simple. What has surprised me is all the literature I've seen saying that variety is fine. I've heard for years and believed that she needed to eat the same food day in, day out. Not so, I'm now seeing from multiple reputable sources. Now, that makes my job easier.
Her first meals have been fun. She's eating Hearst Ranch grass-fed ground beef cooked with organic carrots and celery. I added some Lundberg organic brown rice to the second day's meals. We're taking it slow, but so far, so good. She's cleaning her bowl and seems quite happy with my cooking. Updates to follow.
