One of my friends, who specializes in natural remedies and supplements for dogs, gives her trio of bassets a “sliver of liver” whenever they suffer tummy trouble. Something so simple, I’m always willing to try. Just a one-inch piece, once a day, for three days. That’s all there is to it!
Another one of her nuggets of wisdom is to treat what ails with that food—if one of her bassets is having heart troubles, she gives a sliver of heart. Kidney for kidneys, and so on.
As a matter of habit, I like to give my boyos a couple of tablespoons of organ meat once a week. We’ve made it part of our cooking day ritual. Tino guards the stew simmering on the stove, and Sammie oversees the selection and thawing of the organ meat.
