Default cooling my hot dog

Yes, this is what the vet said I had to do. While I somewhat bought what she was saying...i couldn't help but snicker every time she said "hot dog" hehehe

Anyhoo, so like I said...i went to a chinese medicine vet.

Oakley was prescribed "shen calmer" & a crockpot diet. Anyone ever heard of either? I can post the recipe for his diet if someone requests...it is supposed to be all 'cooling' foods.

I bought all the ingredients, but can't make it til tomorrow cause it has to be in the pot for 8 hrs. We'll see how it goes!

These pills are REALLY freaking annoying though. I have to give 5pills/2x day!! I have to hide everyone really well, cause Oakley is the master at finding them...so I just ended up with my fingers covered in PB, lol.

LOL! That whole phrase, "cooling my hot dog . . . " just sounds so WRONG

It's going to be fascinating to see how this goes, though.

Post the recipe! It will be interesting, especially if others try it and compare results.

mary was a hot dog too. There are three acupressure points that the vet I went to showed me that will help release the heat. I wish I was closer to show you but the vet might be able to when you go in.

Ares is a cool dog. In the TCM meaning and in several other meanings.

ahh make me type it out (jk jk)

Here it is:

16 oz turkey
16 oz whitefish OR pork (i'm using pork, cause she said the fish smells HORRIBLE)
16 oz ground beef
4 tbps EVOO
3 cups total of spinach/collard greens/green beans, other greens (another q i need to ask...cause I am using canned...that doesn't translate very well...so I just used 1 can)
1 can kidney beans
1.5 cups carrots
1/2 tsp dried turmeric
1/2 tsp dried mustard
1 clove uncooked garlic
7.5 tums (250 mg strength)

Put it all in the pot, add 4 cups of water...let cook for 8 hrs. After than, add 1 cup barley, then mix it up with a potato masher. Let it steam for another hour....then EAT..mmmmmmmmm TASTY!

I'm supposed to give Oakley 3/4 cup 2x/day
