As Pixie gets older, we look for ways to fill her life with small luxuries. Recently, we have been making her food from scratch. This delight contains raw hamburger, raw beef liver, one soft-boiled egg: shell and all, carrots, brown rice, brewer’s yeast, and her dose of glucosamine/chondroitin. We add regular dry dog food for texture. She LOVES it.
Apparently, the calcium in the egg shells balances the phosphorus in the meat. Bones would do this in the “wild”. The vegetables are cooked soft, as partially digested vegetables would be in a wolf’s prey. It’s nice to know for sure what we are feeding her and very nice to see her enjoy something we prepared for her.
