GREEN VIBRANCE BY VIBRANT HEALTH

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST PRODUCTS WE HAVE EVER USED WITH OUR POODLES, AND IS EXCELLENT FOR OLDER DOGS.  THIS IS A PEOPLE PRODUCT AVAILABLE THROUGH HEALTH FOOD STORES, HOWEVER IS MUCH BETTER PRICED THROUGH AMAZON.COM OR DIRECTLY FROM US.  IT INCLUDES THE MICROBIALS LISTED ABOVE AND SO MUCH ELSE.  IT REVITALIZES PEOPLE AND DOGS.  OUR POODLES ARE ON IT FOR LIFE, AT THE SAME DOSE AS LISTED FOR MICROBIALS ABOVE.  IT HAS NONE OF THE CHEMICAL SALTS THAT MOST SUPPLEMENTS CONTAIN.  BRINGS VITALITY, EXCELLENT PIGMENTATION, WONDERFUL COATS.  BE SURE TO ORDER THE 24 OZ ECONOMY SIZE FOR THE BEST SAVINGS.  ALSO BE SURE TO REFRIGERATE AFTER OPENING.  MIX INTO MORNING FEEDING JUST BEFORE SERVING.

6 CUPS 3 MINUTE OATMEAL

COOKED IN 8-9 CUPS SIMMERING WATER FOR 5 MINUTES

GRAINS MAY ALSO BE COOKED IN MEAT BROTHS, OR LEFT OVER VEGETABLE JUICES

 

MIX ½ OF THE RICE GRAIN MIXTURE WITH ½ OF THE OATMEAL IN A VERY LARGE STAINLESS STEEL BOWL. 

ADD TO THE GRAIN MIXTURE THE FOLLOWING AND MIX WELL:

2 TABLESPOONS HEALTHY POWDER (OPTIONAL)

1 TABLESPOON NUTRITIONAL YEAST

4 TSPS BONEMEAL OR 1 1/3 TSP EGGSHELL POWDER (OPTIONAL)

2 TBSPS COLD PRESSED SUNFLOWER SEED OIL (NO CANOLA OIL)

1 POUND GROUND MEAT (MAY SUBSTITUTE 1 LARGE CAN GOOD ORGANIC QUALITY DOG FOOD

IF FRESH ORGANICALLY GROWN MEAT NOT AVAILABLE)

4 CUPS LOW-FAT COTTAGE CHEESE (ORGANIC)

4 COOKED EGGS (ORGANIC)(SCRAMBLE & COOK IN MICROWAVE){OPTIONAL}

1 CUP VEGETABLES (RAW OR COOKED){OPTIONAL}

 

ADD ENOUGH GOAT MILK, OR BUTTERMILK TO MIX EASILY.  STORE IN THE REFRIGERATOR IN LARGE CONTAINERS OR FREEZE  UNTIL NEEDED.  REPEAT WITH THE SECOND HALF OF THE GRAINS.

 

FOR THOSE WHO NEED – JUST CUT THE PROPORTIONS AND MAKE A SMALLER BATCH!

BASIC FEEDING GUIDELINES:

SOAK  HALF CUP  (MINIS) TO 1 ½ CUPS (STDS) OF A GOOD QUALITY ORGANIC ADULT DRY LAMB & RICE KIBBLE IN HOT WATER, AND THEN MIX WITH THE BASIC FOOD MIX ( ¼ CUP – MINIS/HALF  CUP – STDS PER PUPPY THROUGH ADULTS FOR THE AM FEEDING.  THIS MAKES A SOFT MASH EASILY EATEN & DIGESTED WHICH IS REALLY IMPORTANT IN THE YOUNG PUP.  PUPS 8-16 WEEKS, FEED SOFT FEED 2-3 TIMES PER DAY, 4 – 9  MONTHS – TWICE DAILY, THEN ONCE A DAY IN THE AM FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIFE.  ADD THE  GREEN VIBRANCE AND THE CARROT & GARLIC TO THE AM FEEDING ONLY.

 

REGULAR LAMB & RICE KIBBLE SHOULD BE AVAILABLE FREE CHOICE 24 hrs/day

***NOTE:  DO NOT FEED FROM ELEVATED FEEDERS, THERE HAS BEEN A MARKED INCREASE IN DOGS WITH BLOAT IN ALL BREEDS SINCE THE ELEVATED FEEDERS HAVE BECOME SO POPULAR.

 
EGGSHELL POWDER

 

KEEP EGGSHELLS IN A CONTAINER UNTIL ENOUGH TO COVER A COOKIE SHEET.  BAKE IN OVEN AT 375-400 DEGREES FOR 15 MINUTES.  LET COOL.  PUT IN BAGGIE.  CRUSH WITH ROLLING PIN.  PUT IN BLENDER IN SMALL AMOUNTS AND GRIND WELL INTO POWDER.  1 EGGSHELL = 1 TSP = 1800 MG CALCIUM

EASY & INEXPENSIVE & NATURAL.  I DECIDED TO TRY THIS IN THE MICROWAVE, AND FOUND OUT I COULD PROCESS THE EGGSHELLS IN SMALLER BATCHES JUST FINE THAT WAY, AND DIDN’T HAVE TO HEAT UP THE OVEN IN THE SUMMER TIME.

WARNING!!!

 

WATCH DOG SNACKS, VITAMIN PREPARATIONS & FOODS FOR CHEMICAL ADDITIVES,  PRESERVATIVES, ARTIFICIAL COLORING, ARTIFICIAL FLAVORING, IMMITATION VITAMINS.  ALL CAN INCREASE THE RISK OF CANCER. 

 

CANCER IS CURRENTLY RANKED AS CAUSING 40% OF THE FATALITIES IN STANDARD POODLES AND 57% OF DEATHS IN ALL BREEDS.

 

BEWARE OF FEEDING MEATS (BEEF & PORK) AND POULTRY FED OR TREATED WITH STEROIDS AND LOW DOSE ANTIBIOTICS.  STEROIDS CAN CONTRIBUTE TO AN IMBALANCE TRIGGERING ADDISON’S, AND OTHER HORMONE RELATED HEALTH PROBLEMS IN ANIMALS AS WELL AS HUMANS.  LAMB, HORSE & CHEVON (GOAT) IS STILL THE SAFEST BEING MOSTLY PASTURE RAISED.

 

SUGGESTIONS:

IF YOU HAVE A SLAUGHTER MAN CLOSE TO HOME, MANY OF THEM WILL NOW GIVE YOU THE BONES FROM BUTCHERED COWS FOR FREE OR A NOMINAL PRICE, AND EVEN CUT THEM UP IN SIZES TO FIT A LARGE STOCK POT.  BOIL THE BONES, USE THE BROTH FOR YOUR GRAINS (FREEZE SOME FOR FUTURE USE), GIVE THE LARGE BONES TO THE POODLES TO CHEW, FREEZE THE EXTRA.  THROW AWAY ALL RIB BONES AND SMALLER BONES.

 

BONES KEEP THE TARTAR FROM DEVELOPING ON THE TEETH, ADD CALCIUM AND OTHER TRACE MINERALS TO THE DIET, AND KEEP TEETHING PUPPIES FROM CHEWING ON THINGS THEY SHOULDN’T, AND LESSENS BOREDOM.  ALSO KEEPS ANAL GLANDS IN BETTER HEALTH.

 

NOTE FOR MINIATURES:

WE FIND THAT SOME OF THE NEW KIBBLES IN “SMALL BITES” WORK BETTER FOR THE MINIATURES.  WE  HAVE BECOME AWARE OF SOME PROBLEMS WITH REGULAR KIBBLES FOR LARGE BREEDS AS THEY MAY CONTAIN  TOO MANY CHEMICAL SALTS WHICH MAY RESULT IN BLADDER IRRITATION IN THE MINIATURES.  ONE REASON WE PREFER GREEN VIBRANCE.
