Learn How To Make An Energetically Neutral Dog Food

Cooking for your dog is an easy way to improve overall health, wellness, and longevity.

In fact, you’ll be using food as medicine to help your dog live a longer, healthier life.

The following recipe is for “energetically balanced” dogs.

When I talk about energetic balance, I’m referring to subtle energy, your dog’s Yin and Yang.

When Yin and Yang get out of balance, sickness and disease occur.

By cooking at home, you’ll easily make sure your dog eats the right food to maintain proper energetic balance.


Is Your Dog Energetically Balanced?

A healthy, energetically balanced dog is mentally stable, healthy, disease-free, and has a perfect balance of Yin and Yang in the body.

The classic signs of balance and health in dogs are:

  • Absence of disease
  • Emotional stability
  • Clear skin
  • Clear, focused eyes
  • Unoffensive breath
  • The tongue is pinkish-red with a mild amount of saliva
  • Easily adaptable to different environments

Our goal with food therapy is creating and maintaining energetic balance in your dog’s body.

So, if your dog is already balanced, he or she will do great on an energetically balanced or “neutral” diet.

TCVM Energetically Neutral Foods

Energetically neutral foods will keep your dog in energetic balance.

The recommended ratios for a balanced canine diet are:

  • 60% – 80% Protein – mostly from meat
  • 20% – 40% Carbohydrates – from grains, vegetables, and fruit
    A minimum of 2% fat

If you have trouble judging the ratios, just use an online food tracker like those on Livestrong or Fitbit websites.

Also, monitor your dog’s weight. If an undesirable weight loss occurs, please contact your veterinarian to make an adjustment in the feeding/diet plan.

Don’t Have Time to Cook? Order The Food Already Made!

Please consult with your veterinarian and use personal judgment when cooking at home for your dog. Even though pet food recalls and the poor quality of some pet foods are a concern, many veterinarians voice concerns over homemade diets.

 Accordingly, some vets feel that when fed exclusively, homemade diets may result in vitamin/mineral deficiencies that can adversely affect a pet’s health. So, if you choose to feed your dog a homemade diet, you must understand and meet your dog’s needs to stay healthy.

 Also, please share our recipe with your veterinarian. Your veterinarian can advise you on supplements for your pet’s individual situation.

 In addition, monitor your dog’s health by observing his/her temperament, skin, coat and waste. If you notice anything strange, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Looking for an Herbal Formulation for Diabetes in Cats?

Why Use an Herbal Formulation for Diabetes in Cats? I remember my first experience giving a cat insulin shots. It was years ago, and I was pet sitting for a friend. Giving kitty an insulin shot would be easy, she said. Just give him a little tuna and give him a shot. That’s it! NOPE. To say the least, giving the kitty a shot didn’t happen quite the way she described it. What she didn’t tell me was how much kitty hated the shot. Or, how fast I’d need to inject to avoid getting scratched! Let’s face it, insulin injections
