If you’ve just become a dog or cat hero by adopting a rescue pet, congratulations! Not only did you make a profound difference in a rescue pet’s life, but you now have a furry bestie to bond with and spoil!
In those first few days, you’ll want to do all you can to help your new pal feel at home. Remember that your new canine furiend is getting used to a lot! A new home, new people, possibly new animals, and new food too! Likely, their stomach is in knots at what could be in store, as they’ve had so many changes already. Preparing delicious, homemade meals and treats could just be the thing to make them feel welcome and safe, and get their tummies back on track.
We are celebrating National Feed a Rescue Pet Week this July 22nd to 28th by showcasing 5 pawsome homemade recipes that are easy to prepare, and are sure to get your new furiend munching!
A bland chicken and rice meal will seem like a gourmet feast for your new pup or kitty. This standard recipe is easy on the tummy and will be sure to get your pet eating, no matter how nervous they may feel.
There’s nothing quite as nourishing as a hearty stew, and this recipe delivers with delicious ingredients your dog or cat will go nuts for!
For an anxious dog, this delicious recipe not only tastes great, but the tryptophan in turkey and soothing pumpkin work together to help calm down an upset digestive system or an anxious mind.
Whether for breakfast or just a treat, this parfait features nourishing oatmeal, blueberries for some healthy antioxidants and yogurt for a dash of probiotics. This recipe is for the dog in your life. If you have a kitty, omit the peanut butter for a blueberry oatmeal parfait.
These recipes are furtastic to help quell a nervous or upset stomach, to help transition your new pet to new foods, and to show them they will be living the good life from now on! Most of these recipes make enough for several meals, but leftovers can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days.
Be sure to watch your portion sizes for your pet, and use these recipes as treats rather than routine meals. If you would like to provide homecooked meals often, talk with your veterinarian to ensure you are meeting all of their nutritional needs.
With these tasty creations, your dog or cat will surely be begging for more!
