Recipes for Specific Conditions

Processed commercial pet foods that are full of harmful pesticides, preservatives, food colouring and chemicals have been linked to disease. If you want your pet to have a shiny healthier coat, with sweeter breath and stools then you must feed a wholesome diet. If your pet has particular problems, then there are Nutritional Treatment guides that you can follow to help it. Below are some suggested recipes. Wherever possible buy organic foods. For overweight dogs substitute brown rice for potatoes and for white rice.

Disclaimer:Each animal is an individual and must be monitored for weight gain and loss and general health on any diet regime. These diets are an aid and may not suit specific individuals and we recommend a diagnosis and thorough work up be performed by Dr. Sherebrin. Treatments will be integrative, with both traditional and complementary medicine modalities as required.

Many thanks to Drs. Elaine Cebuliak, Bruce Ferguson and Ihor Basko for the development of these recipes.

    I’d be interested in suggested special diet recipes providing thereapuetic nutritional support to a senior canine struggling with a triade of symptoms intertwined with gallbladder disease, pancreatitis and liver disease… Much thx!

  • Dear Kelly-Grace,
    With the mature or senior patient and chronic inflammatory disease I think of antioxidants, which are found in bright coloured fruits and vegetables. Needs to be low fat for the pancreatitis, and moderately low protein (but high-quality bioavailable protein).
    A good source of protein is cooked egg white, plus a steamed root vegetable like beets with the greens will provide lots of good antioxidants and betaine for gallblader health. Calcium and trace minerals as well as b-complex vitamins will need to be added. The fat should come from a small amount of fish oil and safflower oil. Consult with a veterinary nutritionist to be sure that the diet is complete and balanced.
