Ayurvedic Cooking for Dogs ~ Graham the Kapha

EPISODE 2

Meal for: "Graham", our once-foster,  now permanent pack member. 2yo. 
Breed:Blue Doberman/Hound Mix
Dosha: Kapha body (balanced) / Vata mind (slightly imbalanced still)

So... the thing with cooking videos... you better make it work the first time because the food is mixed! So I've made a few notes/edits within the info below :)  

NOTE: I am not a vet or a nutritionist. These practices are my personal opinion gathered through study, trial, and careful observation of the effect on each dog, seen as an individual.

This meal is supporting Graham's:
1- Injury / joint inflammation
2- Phobia / fear / anxiety
3- Dull coat

Recipe:
~1cup kibble
(high-quality, grain-free)
~1 tbsp of raw meat/bone mix
(be mindful here - ok to mix in raw for dogs with strong, not sensitive, digestion. otherwise raw food should be separated from kibble/other food)
~1 tbsp of sautéed veggies in 1 tspn of coconut oil & water
(Brussels & kale used in this video. green leafy best for lightening Kapha & reducing inflammation)
~1 tbsp of chickpeas simmered in veg broth
(just a healthy add for protein, nutrients, fiber, etc)
~1/2 capsule of turmeric
(a spice actually; I call it an herb in the video. started with full cap, then tapered after 1mo to 1/2 cap for maintenance dose)
~1/2 tab of Cosequin DS [a product which includes glucosamine & chondroitin]
(started with full cap, then tapered after 1mo to 1/2 cap for maintenance dose)
~1 lid full of ACV (apple cider vinegar)
~A few dashes of Ashwagandha

Other: The flower essence for trauma & transition, mentioned in the video, can be sprayed onto a treat, behind the dog's ears, on bedding, collar, etc. I do a few of these this each time I feed him so I remember to use it consistently. It has made a notable impact on the speed of his emotional recovery. I'm a fan!
