Cinnamon for Dogs

Cinnamon aka Rou Gui
  has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a warming herb for the channels and joints. Used for arthritic symptoms in knees, elbows, hips and back that are made worse during cold damp winter days.

Cinnamon Meatballs for Dogs

Here is a meatball recipe for your dog with warming cinnamon for those dogs affected by cold damp winter days. 

NOTE: Please do not add onion to this recipe as onion is toxic for dogs. 

Cinnamon Meatballs for Dogs

  • 1/2 pound of free range/organic ground chicken or turkey
  • 1/4 cup of shredded carrots (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons of fresh or dried parsley (great for dog breath) 
  • 1 teaspoon of salt 
  • 1/8 cup of Parmesan cheese 
  • 1 egg (leave out if the dog is allergic to chicken.) 
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon 
This can be made for people too!
