    I am having a problem, of course I am by myself today with 10 puppies and mom, I ran out of her commercial dog food. I cannot leave, I have ground venison, pork, plain whole fat yogurt, and steel cut oats. Will this do until this evening? Any ideas


    ETA she is very hungry!!!

    I would worry about pancreatitis switching from a dry food to a rich meat diet so quickly. What brand of dog food are you feeding?

    Do you have any cans of chicken noodle soup? Dilute it with two times the water . Heat it and then cool till warm. And serve to her.
    Best,

    Uncooked meat will do just fine until you can get her regular food. She may experience some digestive issues but you can decide between her being hungry and weird poops

    I might try a bit of the meat mixed with something like rice or noodles. Give it in smaller amounts. New mom's do get very hungry.
