The tips below were given to us by our new pet sitter, Dena, after picking them up for their first weekend visit with her.  She’s an expert on Dachshund’s and a long term client of our vet, “Dr. T.”:

*Feed ¼ raw carrot per meal vs. ½; it comes out in their poop which means it’s not being absorbed and giving them no nutritional value

*Be careful with cauliflower and broccoli – they both can contain a lot of iron and too much iron is toxic to their systems

*You’re safe with peas and green beans

*Never mix raw food with cooked; different enzymes are used to digest raw vs. cooked and it could severely upset their stomachs

*Suggested recipe as an alternative to (the high cost of) Steve’s frozen meat chunks: Scramble 1 dozen eggs including the shells (for added calcium); add green beans or parsley; divide in to 12 packets and put in the freezer; defrost in the microwave for 10 seconds or serve frozen; add a vitamin; feed once a day.
