FIDO’s friends at The Honest Kitchen recently launched their NEW LOOK and we can’t stop barking about how much we love it!

We were also excited to learn that one lucky FIDO fan will WIN a 4lb box of their pet food AND a copy of their Made Out of Love Recipe Book. 


Years ago our 14 year old pug’s skin allergies and irritable bowel syndrome just kept getting worse. She required antibiotics often for skin pustules that developed on her stomach and often had diarrhea from her IBS. We tried a number of different dry kibble foods, but had no success in improving her allergies and IBS. Finally, we decided to make her homemade food to see if that would help her improve. Here is the recipe that we follow with at times alterations in which meat and veggies we use. We acquired this recipe years ago from someone in pug rescue.

4 pounds frozen or fresh ground turkey
4 cups brown or white rice
6 pounds of frozen green beans
6 pounds of frozen carrots or peas
24 oz of low fat cottage cheese.
1 cup of healthy powder (see recipe below)

Healthy Powder
2 cups nutritional yeast
1 cup lecithin
1/4 cup kelp
1/4 cup bone meal
tablespoon each of powdered Vitamin C and E

We cook the meat, rice and veggies, and then mix all the ingredients together.

This recipe has been a life saver. It helped our pug’s IBS and skin allergies immensely and also helped us to better control her weight, which for a pug is not always easy.

We would love the opportunity to win this giveaway to help us find some new recipes to make for our little one. We want her to be around for a very long time.
