If Your Dog is Sick

Helpful tips to get the bounce back in their step

Monitor your dog’s vital signs to make sure they are within normal limits.

Consult your vet for anything out of the normal.

Vomiting and diarrhea can quickly dehydrate your dog, watch their fluid intake.

While your dog is ill minimize their exposure to other animals.

Be careful while dealing with a sick dog, they may try to bite out of fear and confusion.

Give your dog small portions of food to see how they tolerate it.

Keep your pet warm, out of drafts and dry.

Tummy Growls Goulash

The recipe we use for our dogs.

We have had our moments of sick dogs in our household. Living way out in the country we find that our dogs like to roam out of our watchful eye from time to time and when they return your guess is as good as mine what they have gotten themselves into. Usually they are stinkin’ like poo and all tuckered out, not one bit interested in their regular food – it’s almost like they need something warm and homemade in their tummy for a few days until they can get back to normal ;)

Hope this recipe helps fix what is ailin’ your doggie – it’s a favorite go to recipe in our house.

Yield: about 10 cups

1 pound ground chicken, turkey or lamb
3 cups vegetables, carrots and potatoes are easiest on the tummy
2 cups cooked white or brown rice
Chicken stock; to cover (homemade or no-salt added store bought)

Saute meat in large frying pan; drain and put back in pan. Meanwhile, cut-up veggies into small pieces either in a blender, food processor or grinder. Mix meat, veggies and rice. Add enough chicken stock to cover ingredients, mix well. Bring to a boil, turn heat to medium and simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally and adding broth as needed. Cool to just toasty warm before serving. Store remaining recipe in the refrigerator and heat as needed. **Stir in 1 to 1 1/2 cups cooked old-fashioned oats to make this recipe more like a gruel.

Four cups per day of this tummy growls goulash (with other ingredients such as fish, liver and or more vegetables) will feed a happy, healthy 60 pound dog. For your sick (60#) dog try giving a cup at a time, not to exceed four cups. At 48 hours or less you can start slowly introducing your dog back to their normal diet.

Sick dog:
15# – one cup per day @ 1/4 cup at a time
30# – two cups per day @ 1/2 cup at a time
60# – four cups per day @ 1 cup at a time
90# – six cups per day @ 1 1/2 cups at a time

**Always consult your vet about your pet’s health for any suggestions he or she may have about their illness and feeding guidelines!
