Kong Stuffer Recipe - Nutritious Healthy Treat


If you choose to give your dog a Kong, this Kong Stuffer recipe makes a nutritious healthy treat for your dog… 



Ingredients
  • ½ cup meat or meat grind (ground meat, organ meats and bone)
    • If on a 100% raw diet, use raw meat.
      • If not on a 100% raw diet, use gently cooked meat proteins.
      • Meat examples -
        • Poultry / fowl.
        • Red meat.
        • Wild-caught fish such as sardines.
        • Organ meats, including fresh raw tripe.
  • 1 tsp of one of the following:
    • Coconut oil, ghee, hemp seed oil, pumpkin seed butter, sunflower seed butter, tahini.
  • 1/4 cup blueberries (frozen or fresh)
  • 1/3 cup of one or the combination of the following:
    • Dandelion greens
    • Kale leaves
    • Sprouts
      • Broccoli sprouts
      • Other dark leafy green sprouts
      • Cat grass sprouts
      • Herb Sprouts (i.e. basil, cilantro, dill, fenugreek, parsley)
      • Sunflower sprouts
      • Watercress
      • Wheat grass sprouts
Preparation
  • Toss all ingredients in a blender or food processor – puree.
  • Stuff the Kong with the pureed treat mix.
  • Place Kong in freezer.
  • You can cut the above Stuffer treat recipe in half, or double, triple, quadruple the recipe to suit the size and quantity of Kong you will be filling.
Serving
  • Serve frozen.
Variations
  • You can also try -
  • 1 tbs of raw unpasteurized natural honey 
  • Replace the blueberries with tart red cherries.
    • You can also choose other substitutes – for ideas go here >>
  • 1 tsp, up to 1 tbs – *herb or *spice appropriate for your dog’s health. For example:
    • Ceylon Cinnamon – read here >>
    • Ginger – read here >>
    • Turmeric – read here >>
    • Other herbs and spices for dogs – read here >>
    • *use organic or wild-crafted herbs.

Option, No Kong Required – This is My Preferred Method
  • Make the recipe as per above.
  • Fill ice cube trays with the resulting treat mix.
  • Place in freezer and allow to freeze.
  • At treat time, remove the quantity of cubes you wish to use.
  • Serve frozen – do not pre-thaw.
This is my preferred option as I am NOT a fan of Kongs, and here’s why –
  • Kong ingredients are:
    • 80% ‘natural’ rubber.
    • 20% (approximately) unknown strengtheners and fillers -unknown because the manufacturer does NOT disclose those ingredients.
    • Dyes – we have no way of knowing what dyes are used in the manufacturing process as the manufacturer does not disclose this information. We also do not know if scents/ flavorings are used in the manufacturing process as an ingredient in an ingredient (i.e. an ingredient added to the rubber).

Note -

1.0 Use of Foods, Herbs, Nutraceuticals and Alternative Medicines:

When choosing to use any of the items or protocols in the article above, it is your responsibility to ensure safe use of the item/protocol. Food, herbs, nutraceuticals and alternative medicines all have drug interactions, most have health issue contradictions, some have side effects. Use of substances and protocols are your responsibility. Prior to use of any substance or protocol make sure you do your research - check for all cautions, contradictions,interactions, side effects. If in doubt do not use the substance or protocol. If the substance, or protocol is contradicted for your animal do not use. If your animal has an underlying condition you are not aware of substances may conflict with that condition.

2.0 The Real Meaning of Holistic…

Food, herbs, nutraceuticals and alternative medicines are NOT ‘holistic’ they are a substance and MAY, or may NOT be ‘NATURAL’. It is important to keep in mind that the supplement industry is just as unethical as BigPharma, the Food and Pet Food Industry, and unfortunately many veterinarians.

If you use a ‘natural’ substance (i.e. an herb) you are using a natural substance, this is not synonymous with holistic.

Holistic is a way of approaching life, and within that - overall health, and wellbeing.

Please do not expect a natural substance to miraculously remedy a health or behavioral situation. A natural substance may be used to treat symptoms. However, if the factors causing the underlying issue are not properly identified, analyzed and addressed you do not have a remedy.

Remedy requires a comprehensive approach that identifies root cause, seeks to remove items that trigger, cause or otherwise contribute to issues, and builds a complete, and detailed approach to immediate treatment, remedy, and maintenance of long-term health = holistic.

I offer extensive consultation services - Holistic Diet, Nutrition Wellness and Holistic Behavioral, for people that are serious about looking after their dogs and cats holistically. If you want to engage my services you can contact me via email or phone.

If you are looking for additional free advice, please refer back to the articles on my site, do not contact me via email or phone - personalized service is for my clients / patients only.
