SALT LAKE CITY, UT (Good Things Utah) – A healthy diet is the key to a long and healthy life, even for your furry friend! Kris and Sadie Gabler, owners of Drool, told us the importance of your pet’s diet and even share a recipe pup-friendly recipe!

The natural diet of dogs in the wild is vastly different from what is in your average kibble. Their bodies aren’t built to break down the food that we’re use to giving them. Their recipe for a “mutt” loaf is perfect if you want to get your dog the nutrients they need.

  • ½ cup Amaranth
  • 1 ½ cups Chicken broth
  • 1 ½ lbs. ground turkey
  • ½ cup Cottage cheese
  • 2 Eggs
  • ½ cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (uncooked)
  • ¼ cup Each – Carrots, spinach, zucchini – finely chopped
