The benefits of oats for dogs are many but this is even better if we add some more nutrients; here's a oats recipe video for dogs.
One of the best way to start taking charge of your dog's health is by cooking home-made meals. This is the magic 'secret' to saving tons of money in vet bills as well as keeping your beloved pet healthy. And no, don't worry, you won't have to spend hours and hours in the kitchen to cook for Fido.
As promised, you will be led into it gently - so that it is not only do-able but also you don't feel overwhelmed and easy for you and your dog to adapt.
Now, about this recipe. This recipe is great as it is quick, one-pot and all ingredients are probably in your pantry, if not, they are easy to find. Make this recipe fresh - it is also very healing to dogs suffering from ibd/ibs or other digestive issues. Oats have an amazing soothing effect on dog's digestion and when I rescued a dog with horrible ibd, I started cooking with oats. And that is one of the reasons why my dog healed.
But this oats recipe is very general in my home, means I make it often. I do not add canned pumpkin except when I buy it in winter sometimes as I do not support canned foods, not even for my dogs. But because of my dog who needed pumpkin, I decided that temporarily I will buy pumpkin, though organic and BPA-free can. Hence, the pumpkin in the video. Sometimes I buy the regular pumpkin puree from Whole Foods as pumpkin has very thick skin or outer flesh so it hardly gets any pesticides in the inside.
NOTE - You can start slow - mix all this with dog food or even better, mix little bit of this with some boiled brown rice and lentils and let your dog's digestion adjust to it slowly by slowly. Oats are sticky and tend to clump up as they cool, so mixing this with brown rice will take care of stickiness issue and if you have any left-over, then before storing in the fridge, mix brown rice and this mixture together thoroughly and then store on lower bottom. Next day, when serving your dog, mix again and it will be better to eat.
It will start cleaning your dog's body of impurities that years of dog food has accumulated in the system.
Flax seeds, coconut oil, spinach and apple cider vinegar are all great for cleansing. Adding raw anti-oxidant paste takes the healing to the next level - nourishing nutrients while cleansing your dog's system. All from nature's pharmacy - what more can you ask for?
BUT as you start, plz. do NOT make the raw beet paste - start only with this recipe and add greens to your dog's diet like spinach or kale. This alone will help your dog more than enough for now. So, start here - this week.
Plz. share this video to help dogs achieve 'dead-food' a.k.a dog food - FREE life. For Goodness's sake!!
Q&A - Question from Bonnie
Thank you so much. I just found you and am so grateful. Our youngest of 3 Boston terriers has vaccine damage and I am on a quest to heal him. I want to make this recipe but wanted to ask how much oats? Namaste ??❤️
My Reply to Bonnie -
Hi Bonnie - I am also glad you found me! I have been trying to get this reply to you sooner but due to the hurricane here in Houston, we have had internet on and off...So let me type this fast before it goes out again! LOL.
For Recipe - Try this
Since I do not know whether you will be using the oatmeal as a full meal or as an add-on on top of their food, I suggest you try these measurements and when you make it next time, you will know if the amount was right or you need to adjust.
Bring the water to a boil, then add the oats and gently simmer. Add remaining items per the video and after making the recipe, let the oats cool down a bit and harden as it will be easier for your dogs to eat.
Depending on the type of oats you buy, you may have to tweak the water quantity a bit. Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for this helpful info! My dogs liked it and had it for breakfast this morning for the second time. It made plenty so it’s great to have it ready to go for the morning! I will definitely continue making it. I hope you and your family are safe and well from the storm.

OMG!! That makes me so happy to hear this! Yes definitely continue and if they tolerate well, then I HIGHLY advice increasing the flax seeds powder and co. oil in their diet. This will prevent any issues with anal glands and healthy fats are super imp. for overall health, inc. joints as they age later..:) More NEW recipes are coming soon so watch out..:) hehehe - Somyata
