To make Dr. Fox's recipe, combine 1 pound of lean raw meat and 2 cups of uncooked whole-grain brown rice with 1 tablespoon each of vegetable oil and organic butter. Add 1 tablespoon each of wheat germ, apple cider vinegar, brewer's yeast and calcium citrate. Cover the ingredients with water, and simmer until cooked, adding more water if necessary. When hot, add a cup of mixed fresh vegetables, such as carrots, broccoli or yams. Add a cup of fresh fruit, such as blueberries or chopped apples, and then mold into patties to serve.

The chicken noodleroni dog food recipe serves one 30-pound dog two meals for one day. Combine 1/2 cup of cooked chicken and 2 tablespoons of cooked chicken liver with 3/4 cup cooked tomatoes, 3/4 cup peas and 1 cup whole wheat pasta. Add 1/2 cup of broth, 2 tablespoons of cod liver oil and 1/4 teaspoon finely ground eggshell before serving. Alternatively, use 400 milligrams calcium in place of the eggshell.
