I give Zoe about 2 cups of chicken per day–1 cup in the am and 1 cup in the pm with veggies (I use about a cup of green beans, sweet potatoes–both of those cooked PLUS beets and carrots chopped up raw–all mixed together to make 1 cup, so I give her 2 cups of food total twice a day). I pour about 1/3-1/2 cup of chicken stock over the mixture and mix it all up, otherwise she wouldn’t eat all the veggies. (I do heat the stock up in the microwave before I pour it over the food, just to bring out the flavor). I also add about a tablespoon each of cottage cheese sour cream to help curb any yeast infections.

In addition to that I give her 2 egg yolks twice a day. Since the disease is a deficiency of amino acids and amino acids are the building blocks of protein, I do try to supplement the amount of protein. (She eats 4 egg yolks a day raw 2 in the am and 2 in the pm–separate from her meal and I cook about 1 egg white in the chicken stock with each yolk). This is how I prepare them:

I pour about 1/3-1/2 cup of chicken stock in a cup, then separate the egg yolks out in a bowl and put the whites in the cup with the stock and microwave it for about 1 minute 45 seconds to cook the egg whites. (Raw egg whites contain a protein called avidin, which can deplete biotin, one of the B vitamins. Biotin is need for dog’s growth, skin and coat health. The lack of it can cause hair loss, weakness, or skeleton deformity.).

Zoe gets the cooked egg white, stock mixture poured over the yolks and she LOVES it!

(hank the weim gets the other cooked egg white)

She gets a total of 4 Procell capsules a day (I give those separate from her meal–2 in the am and 2 in the pm)

These are all the things I can think of to share with you about our regime with Zoe.
She weighs about 57 lbs, so you’ll need to adjust accordingly!
