Nutrition is a huge part of a pet’s health and well-being. Paying attention to proper diets and limited medications helps keep the whole body balanced.
Dr. Roman recommends a homemade diet of blended fresh and organic veggies combined with bite sized raw meat.
-Blending is ideal to reduce the size of the fresh vegetables and fruits for easy feeding.
- The fruits and vegetables are blended with a cooked mixture of garbanzo beans, black beans, red beans, kidney beans, adzuki beans, mung beans and lentils that have sprouted and been soaked for 24 hours.
- Then cooked quinoa, oats, teff, buckwheat and millet are added.
-Her dogs receive some deer parts from hunting season as well as deer parts spared from car accidents during mating season, which are both cleaned thoroughly. Free range deer meat and bone make up about 6% of their diet. Sometimes purchased organ meat like raw liver and gizzards are added, so that they have bacteria from animals and plants.
-Currently her pets are getting about 1/15th of what the earlier generations of Dr. Roman’s animals were fed.
-Occasionally her dogs get a small amount of plant based Kibble. (A good book on a healthy and ethical diet is “The clean pet food revolution”)
