All my Collies are fed homecooked food.
The vegetables are raw, and they also get
raw chickenwings, raw oxtails and raw liver.
They have superb coat, never any problems
with stomach and they are very healthy.
My Collies food:
- Meat of different kind;
- Different raw vegetables that's
crushed in a blender, not onion;
- Vitamin/mineral tablet;
- B vitamin;
- C vitamin;
- Wheat germ oil;
- Garlic in the tick-season;
- Raw egg;
- Raw liver (from young animals);
- Raw oxtail;
- Raw chickenwings;
- Once a week fish.
Why I give C-vitamins:
My Collies get this vitamin with
their food every day. Dogs do produce some
vitamin C, but we now know it is often not
enough for dogs living with the daily stress
of pollution, vaccinations, and those
involved in performance training, etc.
This vitamin has many superb functions.
It is an antioxidant and it strengthens the
immunesystem; it helps to prevent high
bloodpressure, helping in healing wounds.
It’s water-soluble and can’t be overdosed
(should the dog get too much it can get
diarrhea and then just lower the dose). It
is also a natural antihistamine and can help
when the dog has allergies.
Why I give B-vitamins:
My Collies get B-vitamins in their food
every day. These vitamins are necessary so
that they have a healthy nervous system.
It’s water-soluble and it’s hard to overdose
it, however should the dog get too much the
urine will be bright yellow. B-vitamins
help to maintain a good kidney-function, a
good muscle-tone in the gastrointestinal
tract and also help with eyes and skin.
B-vitamins is also found in organ meat,
poultry fish and eggs.
Why I give Vitamin E/Wheat Germ
Oil: It is also referred to as the
“breeding-vitamin”, it promotes fertility.
It is an antioxidant and anti-carcinogen.
It’s the anti-age vitamin, and improve the
immune system, heals the skin and prevent
It helps to protect vitamin C and
vitamin A from oxidation. It helps healing
of wounds, aids in arthritis, helps with
normal functioning of the nervous system,
boosts muscle power and endurance in working
dogs and prevents cell damage. It also
involved in the formation of "own" vitamin
C. This vitamin is found in whole grains,
dark green leafy vegetables, eggs, and organ
Why I give kelp/seaweed/alga
(different name on the same product I use):
Kelp (I use kelp from my country, Norway)
supports many of the dog's body functions.
It cleanses the digestive system. It’s high
in iron and it fortifies the blood, which
then helps the heart to pump more
efficiently. Kelp also contains calcium,
iron, phosphorus, selenium + vitamins
A,C,B.E and K. It is strengthening the
immune system, very important in older
dogs, which can protect them from a range
of diseases. Also, dogs on kelp supplements
are thought to heal faster from surgery,
because the amino acids in the seaweed
support tissue repair. The rich mix of
iodine and other minerals in kelp makes it
an ideal supplement to keep the entire
glandular system, particularly the thyroid,
adrenal and pituitary glands, in healthy
working order. Kelp improves the overall
condition of the dog's skin and coat. Kelp
also strengthens the body when they have
Why I give garlic:
First it’s to prevent my Collies from
getting ticks, that’s why they get garlic in
“tick-season”, and I have done this for
several years now. Garlic is also boosting
the immune system, it gives a boost to
bloodstream cells that kill bad microbes and
also cancer cells. It has a detoxifying
effect, and can help the liver in its job
getting rid of toxins. Garlic is also
fighting parasites, lower the cholesterol
I never give more than ½ a clove per 5
Why I give eggs: Eggs
are high in fat and protein, and most of the
fat is found in the yolk. I feed eggs raw as
that way it don’t lose the nutrition (much
nutrition is lost when the egg is cooked).
And the myths about feeding raw eggs like it
cause the dog to get a biotin deficiency is
totally nonsense (you have to give an large
amount of eggs if that should be correct and
in fact let eggs be the main-diet). Eggs are
cheap and a safe source to use for food,
it’s a complete food source. Eggs are also
the most complete source when it come to
amino acids. Eggs is a great source of :
Vitamin A / Riboflavin / Folate / Vitamin
B12 / Iron / Selenium / Fatty Acids. It
also keep their coat shiny and a good skin.
My Collie-crew get’s whole raw eggs at least
once a week. If you have a dog that have
problems eating bones, you can grind up
eggshells and sprinkle that over the food
(but be sure that the egg hasn’t been
sprayed with chemicals to make them look
I use eggs from our local farmer which
make me sure that the eggs come from healthy

NB: Avoid feeding your
dog any type of seeds or pits. Although not

better to be safe than sorry. What is known
to be problematic or toxic are apple seeds,
apricot pits, nectarine pits, plum pits,
cherry pits and peach pits.
