My Fur Babe recipes are for dogs only. Dogs are scavengers and a variety of foods can be safely fed to them to improve their diets. (Cats are carnivores and must eat primarily meats to remain healthy.)
I recommend that you clear my recipes with your vet before feeding them to your own Fur Babe, and that you always provide your pups with a varied diet. I make several different recipes for my Fur Babe every week, as well as supplementing his diet with a high quality dry dog food.
I have never made a recipe that North does not devour. I began feeding him homemade foodie meals at two months old. I will never share one with you that is not a hit in his book.
Fur Babe Tuna Chowder
The choice of tuna in this recipe is very important. Some types of tuna are very high in heavy metals and should be avoided. I use a Kirkland brand of Skipjack Chunk Light Tuna that is free school caught and species specific.
16 oz Dry Navy Beans
1 c. Sliced Broccoli Stems
1 c. Sliced Baby Carrots - Organic if possible
2 - 7 oz. Cans Chunk Light Tuna in Water
2-3 Handfulls Cress Greens
Soak the beans in enough water to cover them, in a sealed container. Allow them to soak overnight in the refrigerator.
In a large pot, cook the beans in four more cups of water, over medium-low heat, for an hour. Add water as needed.
When the beans are soft, add the broccoli stems, carrots, tuna and cress. Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to rest, for at least thirty minutes, stirring occasionally.
A serving can be given to your dog while warm - Not Too Hot - the rest can be stored, covered, in the fridge, for a few days.
My Fur Babe is still a large breed pup and finishes this amount of food in about three days. He also gets a serving of dry dog food in the mornings as a supplement.
