Seafood Patties for Dogs Recipe
The first thing we’re going to start out with is six ounces of shrimp ground finely. I buy whole shrimp and just throw them in the food processor. It’s easy enough to do. I also have 12 ounces of canned tuna in oil and you don’t want to drain it. You want to add the oil right in there that oil is actually really good for skin and coat health.
So, you want to keep that in there. I have one mashed sweet potato. I leave the skin on. As you can see, you can peel it if you want to, but there’s some really great nutrients in the skin of the potato. So I just leave it on and shred up the skin as I mash the potato, so it works out.
Next, I’m adding two crushed garlic cloves. I do hear from some people. Sometimes they’ve heard that garlic is poisonous and toxic for dogs, while it’s true that it is toxic for dogs in large quantities, it’s actually very beneficial to dogs in small quantities. So I do have some scientific research if you click the link below this video. It’ll take you to my written guide and you can see the science behind garlic for dogs and some of the really impressive health benefits that it offers. Just one of those is aiding in joint pain and inflammation and the swelling related to joint pain or wound, healing and healing after a surgery or injury, so really great health benefits, and you can check out the science behind that.
This is half a cup of plain yogurt. You want to make sure that you get plain yogurt. Even the vanilla, flavored yogurt is full of artificial flavoring and sugar that your dog doesn’t need in my hand. I have a quarter teaspoon of turmeric, a quarter teaspoon of black pepper and a quarter teaspoon of thyme and I’m going to add those in there. Just be careful, you don’t want to go and buy the stuff that you would get like in the baking aisle.
You want to actually get organic thyme I use thyme leaves you can get crushed or ground time as well. You want to get the turmeric that you can find in the supplement aisle or your pharmacy. You don’t want the cooking, turmeric and um same thing with black pepper, just get organic black pepper, because those have the most health benefits. So now I’m just going to mix this all together and obviously it’s going to make a almost like a meatloaf kind of consistency.
It’s a very wet uh consistency and you can use that to make the patties I put the patties in individual serving sizes. I do half cup servings for my dogs, I recommend half a cup for every 25 pounds of body weight. So it’s easy for me to do half cup servings because I have 225 pound dogs and a 75 pound on, so I can just easily portion them like that. But you know if you have a smaller, larger breed and you want to make smaller, larger patties that works too.
I portion them out onto parchment paper and then i freeze them and you can feed them frozen. I usually warm them up or bring them to room temperature before feeding, but you can make a large batches of this and do it that way. If you choose, they will keep in the refrigerator, store them in an airtight container and store that you can store them for up to about five days um in the freezer they last for up to three months.
