From Andi’s website:
One in four pets is obese, and every year owners spend thousands of dollars treating allergies, joint problems, digestive disorders and serious diseases that could improve dramatically with a homemade nutritious diet.
Consider this all too common situation: A pet is gravely ill, and the veterinarian prescribes cooking chicken and rice, or beef and rice. The anxious and hopeful pet owner races home to make these prescribed meals and endeavors the process for a week or two. On their next trip to the vet, the pet is pronounced well and the vet instructs the owner to go back to the original food, which again triggers the problem. But this only perpetuates a downward health cycle. Why not feed the same high-quality, real, wholesome, and healing food as the pet’s steady diet, every day of their life? Why should they eat great food only during times of sickness or disease? Why shouldn’t our pets be eating healthfully every day to promote optimum vitality, and wellness?
With over 25 quick and easy recipes for home cooked meals and treats, and a guided weekly journal to track your pet’s progress, this book is a must for anyone who’s ever wondered how they can have a healthier pet, and help avoid the use of costly drugs or surgery
It’s Never Too Late to Eat Well!

The Whole Pet Diet Chicken Stew
aka Doc’s Stew(r) – My Newest and healthiest updated recipe from my book
Special note: use organic ingredients whenever possible
5 pounds Whole Chicken or Turkey (bones, organs, skin and all) Beef is fine too!
6 – 8 cups spring water
1/2 pound of additional beef liver, or chicken liver or turkey liver (your choice)
1/2 pound of wild salmon
2 cloves chopped fresh garlic
1/2 pound green peas
1 pound coarsely chopped carrots
1/2 pound coarsely chopped sweet potato (yam) (This may be omitted, if your pet is sensitive to grains or starches)
1 pound coarsely chopped zucchini
1 pound coarsely chopped yellow squash
1/2 pound of coarsely chopped green beans
1 pound coarsely chopped celery
1/4 teaspoon kelp powder Dash of dried rosemary
See Chef’s Tip on Freshly Grated Toppings
For Dogs: Add 12 oz. of Rolled Oats and adjust the water content to a total of 12 cups or enough to just “cover” the ingredients.
(I don’t recommend the grains portions for cats)
Combine all ingredients in a 10-quart stock pot (stainless steel, please). Bring to boil, reduce to low, and simmer for about 1 1/2 hours. Once finished (your carrots are soft), let cool and de-bone the chicken by hand. With an electric hand mixer (I use one available from Sears for about $19) or a food processor, blend all the ingredients into a nice puree. Using plastic yogurt containers, or Tupperware, make up “meal-sized” portions or what you will need for three days, and freeze what you don’t need immediately. Be sure and seek your pet’s advice for ideal meal sizes. Also, never serve cooked chicken bones to a pet; they splinter easily.
Yields: 20 cups for cats and 26 cups for dogs
Cat Feeding Directions: Average adult cat will eat roughly 1 cup a day; more or less depending on age, activity, level, current health, and season.
