Home Cooking for Geriatric Dogs

This is for dogs over eight years old.  Some dogs may need special consideration. 

I’ve been feeding my cocker spaniels home-cooked food for 12 years.

Boil for 1 hour or more – meat should be falling off bones:
2 Cups ox tails or pork rib bones
1/2 cup Chinese parsley (cilantro)
1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms
2 T. fresh ginger
1 cup azuki beans
10 cups water

Then add and boil for another 45 minutes (until root vegetables are cooked):
3 cups white rice
1 cup barley or millet
2 cups beets
1 cup celery
2 cups sweet potato
3 cups greens
1 cup carrots
1 cup broccoli
1 cup chicken livers
