Use to cook nutritionally complete home-made meals for puppies
Use VegePup™ Recipe Brochure to cook tasty and healthy food for your pup. The brochure includes recipes of home-made kibble (see pictures) and other delicious and nutritionally complete puppy.
- Nutritionally complete meal. Your puppy is getting 100% of nutrients from a home cooked diet. If you cook dog food at home without any supplements, you must ensure that your puppy is getting enough of Calcioum, Phosphorous and all the essential amino acids and fatty acids. Some nutrients are rare, which is why supplementing is the best way to provide these nutrients for anyone cooking dog food at home.
- Full control over the ingredients. Cooking dog meals at home gives the ability to select the ingredients you want. You can include the ingredients your puppy likes, and exclude those your furry friend doesn’t like. For example, you can include sweet potato and green peas, and exclude corn and wheat.
- Variety. By cooking dog food at home you have many options when it comes to formulating various flavors, so your puppy can always have something different, which adds excitement and energy to your companion animal.
- Affordable. Cooking dog food at home and supplementing it is the most affordable way to feed your puppy; one bag of supplements lasts a long time and is more economical than buying pre-made commercial kibble.
The VegePup™ supplement is intended for use with VegePup™ recipes or recipes closely based on ours. You can add a variety of fresh vegetables to our recipes, but they should not make up more than 10% of the diet. Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are particularly important during the growth stage. The specific oils and flax ingredients in our recipes provide EFAs in the correct ratio.
Do not add the VegePup™ supplement to commercial food to avoid over-supplemenation. You may feed both commercial and home-prepared food but you should only add the VegePup™ supplement to the home-prepared portion of the diet, reducing the daily serving size accordingly.
It is best to mix the supplement into prepared warm food, but the supplement can also be added during the cooking process.
We highly recommend using our VegeYeast, a brewer’s yeast modified for acidity that is especially good for your dog’s or puppy’s urinary health. To monitor urinary health of your pet at home, use CheckUp kit for Cats and CheckUp kit for Dogs.
For optimal health, add a lactose-free digestive enzyme product to your dog’s diet (see Enzyme Miracle). Also, Green Mush™ — the ultimate superfood for your animal companion — is a wonderful addition to any diet and is available from Compassion Circle.
Gradual transition is the key to a successful transition.
Start by mixing 1 part of new food and 4 parts of old food.
During the next 2 weeks, gradually increase the amount of new food to 100%.
Older pets and picky eaters may need longer time and extra care to completely switch.
Digestive Enzymes can be used to harden up stool during transition.
Nutritional Yeast has a cheesy flavour, which cats and dogs love.
More transition tips on this page.
Provide ample water to cats and dogs, and especially male cats due to their urinary anatomy.
Water aids with digestion and helps to avoid urinary issues. Water flushes out pathogens, heavy metals, and harmful drugs.
Soak dry kibble in water to make moist food with 1:1 ratio (1 part kibble to 1 part water), and wait for at least 30 min before serving.
Use distilled water whenever possible.
Incorporate wet canned food for better hydration. Mix wet food with dry kibble to increase moisture level.
Use an electric water fountain to entice pets to drink more water.
Store in a dark, cool place, tightly sealed.
For canned food: after opening, remove remaining leftovers and put into an airtight container for up to 3 days, keep it in the fridge. It can also be portioned out and frozen for later use or served as a frosty treat!
Brush your furry friends' teeth regularly.
Offer dental treats after moist food or add several dry kibbles to help scrape off the plague.
Monitor pH of your pet's urine - more info on this page.
