Cooking for your dog - Quan Yin's Immunity Stew


 


Quan Yin’s Immunity Stew

 

This is the recipe I cooked for our dog, Quan Yin Kali Wu who was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor on her leg. She was allergic to chicken and  rice; however, you could cook organic white rice or brown and add it to this mixture. White basmati is better for dogs with loose stools. Brown rice is more warming and best used in winter or dogs prone to constipation.

Quan Yin has passed over the rainbow bridge and now eats whatever she wants while chasing squirrels.


1 package of ground organic free-range no hormones turkey.

(Our dog was allergic to chicken. )
You can use chicken but make sure it is organic, free range and hormone free. Most chicken and beef sold in grocery stores have been injected with estrogen and antibiotics to make them plumper.
Estrogen is fertilizer for the Cancer.


Steam or sauté in water a handful of shredded carrots, sweet potato, celery and parsley. Parsley is wonderful for stinky dog breath. Broccoli gave her gas but feel free to add it if you want!

When the vegetables are tender, add the turkey with about a ½ cup of filtered water and cook for about 20 minutes. Keep stirring.

Allow to cool. Or heat a normal meal portion in the microwave for about 30 sections.

When serving this we also added a small portion of  organic canned green beans with a tad of the juice so her Mercola Mushroom Complex for pets powder, Arnica, Yunnan Bai Yao, Astragalus and any other medication or herbs can be disguised in the meal. Yummo!

 


She had a large organic carrot as a treat every day too. Great for stinky dog breath, good for her teeth and Vitamin A for her eyes.

Cancellation Policy: Any appointment missed or cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice will be charged the full fee amount. This fee is waived for emergency situations, during illness and inclement weather.


Guidelines for Office Visits

To keep your pet relaxed through the session we have a few house-rules. Working with animals takes a bit more focus and energy. 

As I incorporate many modalities of holistic therapies into this session, I also need to stay calm and focused.

Thank you for helping me make each session for your pet the best that it can possibly be. 

All paperwork must be filled out BEFORE you arrive to save time!

Please bring your pet’s favorite blanket or toy. Please take your dog out to pee before the session.
  • The owner must be in the room with me and the dog/cat during the entire session. You are part of your dog/cat’s family. This keeps the dog/cat relaxed. I also ask the owner to participate to help keep the dog/cat still during the session. Keeping the owner involved makes the animal happy and usually better behaved. During the session, I will also be showing you how to massage, do basic acupressure and apply liniments.

    Please note this is also for liability reasons.

    Please no cell phone, texting during the session unless it is an emergency. NO video-taping the session without my permission.

    Our rooms at Our Family Veterinary Services are small. We ask that you do not bring children for these sessions.

    No Smoking in the room.

    Please note I am allergic to peanuts. I ask that you do not feed your dog any peanut treats or have them in the room on the before or during the session.

    Please refrain from bringing food or eating during the session. Usually most dogs will focus on the food which makes it difficult to keep them calm.

    Payment is due at the time of service. I accept cash, credit cards and checks and Zelle if arrangements are made ahead of your session.

    If you need to reschedule your session or cancel please contact me directly by text or call.  351-444-8058

Thank you for wearing a mask while in the treatment room during the cold, flu and Covid season. This is for your protection as well as mine. At this time my immune system is still fragile. I appreciate your cooperation.
