Homemade Chicken Soup for Our Dogs To The Rescue



One of our dogs was doing a lot of coughing and so much so that I went to the door to check on him. But he ran away into the woods once he heard the door being opened. I yelled out to him to get him to come back but he ignored my calling out to him. So later that day my husband went out to feed him and the other two dogs and so when he came over to eat, my husband put him on a leash and brought him back over to his own dog house to stay for a while. We wanted to make sure that he is no longer free to be running all over the place because it was apparent that he needed rest since it is obvious he was coming down with a bad cold.

Well, I said to my husband, thank goodness that the rest of the dogs were just fine and showed no symptoms of a cold too but we had to not only care for the one who was sick but to do some preventive care for the other two. So I put together some echinacea, elderberry, ginger, Hawthorne berry, and vitamin C capsules to go in their food every day, baked a large tray of unseasoned chicken thighs for the dogs, and seasoned a whole chicken for us. Once the meats were cooled I removed the bones and put the thigh meat and it’s drippings into a crock for the dogs and the whole chicken meat and it’s drippings into another crock for us, then added to both crocks, water, frozen mixed vegetables, frozen carrots, some fresh chopped celery and a few chicken bouillon cubes for flavor and allowed the soup to cook slowly over the next few hours. Then made a pot of egg noodles for us and plain rice for the dogs.

My neighbor wanted some and so we shared some with her. Our soup was so delicious with the egg noodles and we had a few saltine crackers on the side as it was made at the perfect time because the temperature was down in the low 30’s all week long.

So we loved our soup and it was so amazing to see how all the dogs loved theirs and to see that it helped chase away our sick dog’s cough and cold within just a few days. I was so happy he got better and so we managed to avoid having to take him to see the vet for treatment and buying antibiotics. And for that, I am happy and thankful.
