• 5 cups WEST COAST CANINE LIFE  Regular Premix.

  • 1 cup minced raw green beans (or thawed and drained frozen beans.)

  • ½ cup minced raw minced squash or pumpkin.

  • 1 minced red apple (Red Delicious is our first choice.)

  • 1 raw egg.

  • ½  cup PURE  unsweetened cranberry juice (e.g., R.W. Knudsen family or Bremner’s)

  • ½ cup organic sunflower, safflower oil, or Extra Virgin Olive Oil (The oil from the first pressing)

  • 1 ½ lbs raw, boneless ground chicken or turkey

  • ½ to 1 cup filtered water (more or less water  may be required depending on the water content in the ingredients you use)

Gastro Diet – Follow the recipe above, with the following substitutions:

  • Use Whitefish, chicken or turkey as your protein choices. Whitefish can include cod, pollock, tilapia, or three cans of rinsed tuna per batch of muffins.

  • Use unsweetened applesauce, rather than a whole apple. This may be easier to digest and contain less fibre.

  • Use bland vegetables such as green beans, or peeled vegetables such as carrot, sweet potato, zucchini or squash.

  • Add 1 additional teaspoon of cinnamon to the 5 cups of Premix.

  • Use Extra Virgin Olive Oil instead of sunflower or safflower oil. If your Veterinarian recommends a lower fat diet, reduce the amount of oil suggested in the recipe.

We suggest making cookies from this Premix, as other treats may contain ingredients not tolerated by your dog.  Recipes can be found on our website.

Consult your veterinarian if diarrhea persists for more than 24 hours, and immediately, if you see blood in the stool.

If your dog has occasional gastrointestinal flare-ups, consider feeding a small amount of Thai Jasmine Rice Congee alongside the muffins e.g., ½ cup of rice congee to one regular size muffin (90 grams).  As the gastro problem clears up, you may be able to decrease the amount of the Thai Jasmine Rice Congee.

Thai Jasmine Rice Congee/Porridge:  3 cups water to 1 cup Thai Jasmine rice.  Simmer until all water has been absorbed.

Dogs with gastrointestinal issues often do much better when fed smaller more frequent meals, including a small meal before bed.
