Dog food gravy will spice up your pets meals

 

This recipe will allow your dog to eat his kibble and at the same time give him a little enjoyment in his day of waiting for you to come home.

Gravy - your pet will love it!

Dog food Gravy makes that kibble tasty and more appealing to your pet.

So I make some gravy to mix in with or drizzle over their kibble.  Please do not use a mix from pre-packaged gravy mixes.  These have too much salt in them.

Choose an organic can of no salt chicken stock and add some omega oils and whole wheat flour.

INGREDIENTS:

  1. 1 T Omega 6 oil or olive oil
  2. Chicken stock from cooking chicken breast with no skin, about 1 to 2 cups
  3. 1 T flour

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Put a little omega oil into a pan and mix in enough flour to make a roux.
  2. Toast the flour until golden brown and add your chicken stock and stir constantly until you have a rich chicken stock gravy.
  3. When you put out the dinner, drizzle a little gravy over the kibble.
  4. If that still won't work, add a little ground round, turkey or chicken (1 Tablespoon) to the kibble and mix it all up.
  5. When I was at the pet store I was given some kibble as samples.  When I took them home I tasted each one.  Most were bitter tasting and awful.  But there was one of them that tasted like a biscuit.  That's the one I bought and my dogs eat it just fine.

Compare my recipe to commercial pet foods:

 

Iam's pet food gravy has these ingredients:

Chicken Broth, Chicken, Chicken Fat  (preserved with  a source of Vitamin E, and Citric  Acid), Sodium Bisulfate, Xanthan Gum, Chicken Flavors, Dried Beet Pulp  (sugar removed), Potassium Sorbate (a preservative), Brewer's Dried  Yeast, Flax Meal, Carrots, Peas, Vitamins (Vitamin E Supplement,  Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin A Acetate, Calcium Pantothenate, Biotin, Thiamine Mononitrate (source of vitamin B1), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Niacin,  Riboflavin Supplement (source of vitamin B2), Inositol, Pyridoxine  Hydrochloride (source of vitamin B6), Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic  Acid), Potassium Chloride, Minerals (Ferrous Sulfate, Zinc Oxide,  Manganese Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, Manganous Oxide, Potassium Iodide,  Cobalt Carbonate), Rosemary Extract.

There is no mention of free range chickens so that means chickens that have been deemed unfit for human consumption. 

Vitamin C is not needed for dogs, as they make their own Vit C in their bodies. 

Here it is used as a preservative.  And what is a "chicken flavor"?  Why not use real chicken flavors?  I am sure that the can costs more to produce than the food that goes into that can. 

Dog food is regulated by PFI – The Pet Food Institute
    AAFCO – Association of American Feed Control Officials
    FDA/CVM – The Food and Drug Administration Center for Veterinary Medicine.

But they do not enforce the rules or check if there are diseased meat or downer cattle in the food.

I do not recommend Hill's, Alpo, Fancy Feast, Friskies, Mighty Dog, or Purina One.

dog food gravy is sometimes necessary if you don't make your pets dinner and insist on feeding kibble - personally I would rather make their chow then buy inferior products
