There has been a great deal of controversy about dog food. Problems of salmonella has resulted in several recalls of dog food. Many people make their own which is what I used to do when I had dogs. There is also the discussion about feeding your dogs raw meat. Again, there is the high probability of germs, salmonella, and more. One year for the holidays, my family and I went to visit my in-laws who lived in an apartment. We had to travel to see them and, of course, brought the dogs. At that time I had two Dobermans, a mother and son. We placed them in a kennel near the in-laws that was surrounded by trees and lots of grass. We were assured that they would be fine. After we returned home, the son, Smokey, began to appear sick. I hadn’t changed his routine or his dog food. So I drove one hour to an older vet I knew. He tested him and said his kidneys were failing and he was operating at three percent. He gave me a diet for him that I started immediately. I also used this recipe for my granddaughter’s dog because she hates dog food. It’s efficient but takes a little effort. You can make it in whatever quantity you prefer. I started with a large pan. I cut up and browned some onions in a large pan. I also browned any of the following: chicken lives, beef livers, or any cuts of inexpensive meats. I removed the meats and put them aside. I then added boiling water and whatever amount of rice you might need for several days of food. You can also include carrots or any vegetable your pet might like. I included chicken bouillon for extra flavor. I did salt the meat. Once the rice was close to being finished, I added the meat so it had a good flavor. My dog improved dramatically and lived a few more years. My granddaughter’s dog is thriving. So, if you are tired of recalls and want to lower your pet’s food bill, try my recipe. It really works. In the Good Gus series there were very few dogs. If you think about it, how did they feed their dogs? The series is online at Kindle with a few books on Nook and Waterstones. “Misplaced Trust” is also online at 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
Many people have parasites and it takes a while to diagnose. Most individuals believe that they will never have parasites. It’s not a third world condition anymore. Just recently there was an article about a woman who had them in her eyes. She was jogging in California when she ran into a swarm of flies. She had a difficult time swatting them away as they were in her mouth, up her nose and on her eyes. About a month later her eye itched and that’s when she discovered a worm. She went immediately to an ophthalmologist and they discovered four more and removed them. Of course, the big question is how do you get them? When sushi became popular years ago, the raw fish contained a multitude of parasites which lodged in people’s stomachs. If you eat any type of raw meat you may have the parasites decide to make a home in your body. Any type of dairy that has not been pasteurized, can give you parasites. It’s horrible to even conceive that they are living inside of you. There was an episode on the “Blacklist” in which a scientist bred beetle larvae, then changed it into a concentrate to kill other people. Once he slipped it into their food the larvae would form and then thousands of beetles would slowly eat away the insides of a person so that they could no longer breathe. When the individuals were cut open thinking that they might need a tracheotomy, the hatched bugs flew out. It was horrible. Always make sure your food is pure before you eat it. I am sure that there were parasites during the Good Gus era. Available online, the series is great for Christmas gifts. It is on Kindle, Nook and Waterstones. it is continuing to sell at the UPS Store in Tierrasanta, California. “Misplaced Trust is also online at 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Playster, Scribd and Tolino.
