Puploaf For Cancer Patients
Dr. Judy Morgan is my new co-host on HOLISTIC VETS, sharing duties with Patrick Mahaney, and I was so happy to learn that she is as big a fan of The Honest Kitchen products as Dr. Patrick and I are! Dr. Judy has two integrative holistic clinics in Southern New Jersey, which you can visit if you are lucky enough to live nearby, or want to share in the wealth of information she has on her website for everyone at http://claytonvetnj.com/. She is also the author of an excellent book, which is how I originally met ehr: CLICK HERE to find out how you can order your copy of “From Needles To Natural”
If you have a dog with cancer, the Puploaf she writes about is a great dinner choice — and if you have a healthy dog, then keep her that way by serving The Honest Kitchen foods — well-sourced, lightly processed and brimming with health from the fruits and vegetables so often recommended for cancer survivors of both species. If you want to try your own hand at cooking for wellness and illness, check out Dr. Morgan’s second book, What’s For Dinner, Dexter? which is now available for purchase! Co-authored with Tonya Wilhelm, owner of Perky Paws Cafe, this book provides information on Chinese medicine theory and how food can be used as therapy for pets. Many recipes are also included to help you provide your pets with a home cooked diet that meets their specific needs, whether they have existing medical issues or you just want to cook them healthy, well-balanced meals.

If you follow my blogs, you’ve probably heard about puploaf. Puploaf was originally invented by me as an easy way to serve a home cooked high quality meal to your dogs without having to worry about using a lot of supplements. I used Honest Kitchen Preference as the base mix for the puploaf to ensure that dogs would be fed high quality vegetables along with all the vitamins and minerals that were needed. Puploaf has been extremely popular and is now a common household term throughout the country and around the world! Honest Kitchen has since come out with a new product called Honest Kitchen Kindly. The Kindly base mix is similar to Preference, but without sweet potatoes. So for pets with allergies to potatoes or pets with cancer that need a low carb diet, the Kindly solves the problem! For those who missed it, here is the puploaf recipe:
- 2 pounds lean ground meat (beef, bison, turkey, chicken, veal, venison, or a combination)
- 1/2 pound ground organ meat (hearts, liver, gizzards, kidney)
- 1/2 – 1 cup Honest Kitchen base mix rehydrated (amount depends on whether you like your diet to be meat heavy)
- 1/2 cup cooked barley or quinoa – not essential, eliminate if you want your puploaf to be grain-free
- 3 to 4 eggs
Mix all ingredients in a bowl, place in loaf or square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on thickness of the loaf. Add probiotics at the time of serving. Serve at room temperature. Can be refrigerated up to 3 days. Can be frozen for later use. At our house we make it in large batches, 35 pounds at a time.
