BackstoryQuality ingredients are important to the Tiny dog as they use energy super fast. We always want the best food on our plate so this is our version of a healthy nutritious diet for the 'Itty-Bitty' Dog.
We prefer to make all fresh about every 3 days and keep the unused portion in the refrigerator for their morning and evening meals. We do have a high quality dry dog food down for their consumption throughout the day with fresh water daily. This diet is meant for those who want another option for their beloved pet. Introduce meals slowly. Do not stop your pets diet completely unless otherwise noted by a medical professional as your pet may experience diarrhea.
- (3) baked chicken thighs & juices from pan (deboned)
- (6) boiled organic carrots
- 8 oz frozen organic peas
- 1/8 cup frozen organic blueberries (if in season, fresh is always better)
- Pet Vitamin- high quality or one from your veterinarian
- Preheat Oven: 350 degrees
- -Place (3) uncooked chicken thighs in an oven-ready pan with 1/3 cup water. Cover with foil for 1 hour.
- -After an hour, take foil off, rub skin with a pat of butter and bake another 30-40 minutes or until chicken is completely cooked (we like the meat falling off the bone).
- Time to start the veggies:
- -On the stove top use a quart pan to boil the veggies. Chop the unpeeled carrots in half, set in about 5 cups water. On medium heat, boil carrots for 30 minutes.
- -After 30 minutes, add frozen peas to the carrots and boil another 10-15 minutes. If timed correctly, all the ingredients for this dish will be done about the same time. Yay! Both veggies should be soft for easy digestion for our 'itty-bitty dogs'
- After all the ingredients are completely cooled, in a large mixing bowl:
- -Piece up the chicken with skin. Throw away all bones and hard cartilage.
- -Add the chicken broth. Mix well.
- -Add the carrots and peas. Mix with a pastry blender until well chopped. (Mom says so we don't choke because we swallow everything so fast).
- -Then stir in the blueberries, yum!
- -Add to each bowl a pet vitamin specifically to the pups individual weight and mix well into food.
- Serving size for our zoo: 1-1/2 heaping Tablespoon per Tiny Dog meal.
- Refrigerate for up to 4 days or freeze in ziplock containers for ready made meals for up to one month.
