Do you sprinkle?

Organisation is a big part of one of my coping strategies for a busy life.  There is no way I could be serving a partial raw fed diet to my dogs if I wasn’t organised and that means having a meal prep session (20 mins), putting the labelled containers into the freezer to be brought out each day for their evening meal. Easy. Done

Holly, my 6 year old English Cocker Spaniel is only getting a small amount of kibble in the morning and that’s it. (its me that is just as addicted to the sound of those little crunchy balls!)

I have replaced her evening kibble with brown rice and barley, that I make in a big batch and freeze in 3 large freezer bags, laying flat in the freezer for room saving measures and quick defrosting.

I  mix this with the morning vegetable & fruit juice pulp and other vegetables (plus any saved veggie offcuts).  I sometimes even add supermarket frozen chopped vegetables  in place of the evening cup of kibble.

Dobby, half Pom, half Spaniel, at 16 years is getting quite ‘quail’ like in frame.   I have decided to keep him on his kibble, to this I add the rice/barley mix, plus his raw meat selection.

I have started making a sprinkle supplement of Kelp, Brewers Yeast and Parley, which I add a teaspoon over their meal and stir in.


Kelp: Valuable source of a number of minerals, particularly iodine, it contains 15% sodium, 13% potassium, 3% Calcium and a string other other important minerals.

Brewer’s Yeast: High in protein and carbohydrates, its very low in fats. Rich source of the B couples group vitamins, particularly rich in B1

Parsley: High in Vitamin A, rich in potassium and iron.

Other useful additives that are good in your dog’s diet are:

  • Fish oils
  • Flaxseed oil
  • Kelp, seaweed, nori
  • Virgin coconut oil
  • Raw apple cider vinegar

Sprinkle Recipe:


2 Tbsp Kelp

2 Tbsp Brewer’s Yeast

2 Tbsp Dried Parsley


Mix together until combined and store in a sealed jar.  Keeps for a long time.


By having a jar made up of this super supplement sprinkle on hand it makes it easy to add to the doggos meal  with very little fuss or stress, sometimes I even add a raw egg to this or a can of tuna with olive oil and mix through.  Let’s just say their is a lotta tail wagging and my husband certain thinks that its definitely a dogs life in our house.

Enjoy and always keep it mixed up, who wants to eat the same thing day after day?
