Low-Fat Diet for Dogs

This recipe is for a 35 lb. dog for 1 day. Adjust recipe for your dog’s weight. I recommend preparing a 5 day total.

  • ½ cup 1% low fat cottage cheese
  • 2 cups long grain brown rice, over cooked
  • ½ tsp olive oil (EVOO)
  • ¼ tsp potassium chloride (available at most grocery stores)
  • 1 tbsp. bone meal or calcium sup ( Animal Essentials herbal calcium)
  • Vitamin Supplement (Animal Essential Herbal Vitamin)
  • 1-2 tbsp steamed vegetables
  • 1-2 tsp oat bran

Use organic ingredients wherever possible. This can be split into 2-3 daily feedings. This assumes no snacks or treats. Please discuss treats or snacks with your veterinarian so the amount of food can be adjusted accordingly.
