Rudy Green's Doggy Cuisine
This scrumptious dog food is masterfully created with human-grade products like real meat, vegetables, and whole grains especially for dogs

Rudy Green's Doggy Cuisine is an easy, fast way to serve your dog real food that is nutritious and tasty.  It is ideal for pick eaters, dogs with allergies or a sick dog.  Ever since Alle had diarrhea and had to eat a bland diet I realized the importance of feeding her healthy human-grade foods.  So I try to cook most of Alle's meals but I don't always have the time or energy.  But now with Doggy Cuisines I'm satisfied that I can give her a healthy meal without the prep and clean up.  It's home cooking for your dog with non of the work which means more bonding time with your pet! 

This all natural food comes frozen and can be thawed in the refrigerator.  You can serve it cold or warm by heating it up in the microwave (I heated it up for Alle but cold probably would great for summer).  You can apply it to your dog's bland dry food as a delicious topper or just as a treat for your canine.  Any unused portions can be put back into the refrigerator in the reusable container for three days.
Rudy Green's containers are in clear containers so you can see actually what you are getting.

When Alle heard me microwaving the Doggy Cuisines she came running and drooling.  She devored everyone of these flavors and finished them completely with nothing to throw away.  Which I can't say for other foods I have tried to give her. Yeah no waste!  Plus I didn't have to coax Alle to eat her food, she was happy and willing to woof it down.

But be warned these Rudy Green's Doggy Cuisnine smell delicious! The yummy aroma fills the air and makes your stomach growl.  And with a little salt & pepper you could eat these yourself but I don't think your dog will let you!

Their are six Doggy Cuisine Varieties:
Turkey Mac-N-Cheese-ground turkey, organic cheddar cheese, macaroni, spinach and carrots


 Beefy Rice-lean cuts of prime beef, brown rice, carrots and peas

Pork, Pasta & Potato-pork loin, potatoes, rotini pasta and celery

Chicken & Veggies-white chicken, brown rice, zucchini and sweet potatoes


Veggie Might-barley, lentils, spinach, corn, peas, potatoes, carrots and sea meal

Holiday Boof-fet-Turkey with all the trimmings (available November & December) 

Rudy Green's Special Snacks
Rudy Green's Special Snacks are a healthy treat for your pup made with all natural ingredients and no preservatives! They are sold frozen and have to refrigerator after opening



Rudy Green's Special Snacks come in two varieties:
Beefy Bars-ground beef, oats, stone ground whole wheat flour, eggs, rosemary and garlic
Spinach & Cheese-spinach, stone ground whole wheat, flour, cheese, oats and garlic

Alle got to snack on the Beefy Bars flavor of the Special Snacks.  You can clearly see and smell the scrumptious ingredients.  Alle woofs these down with such delight and she came begging when she heard me open the bag.


Rudy Greens is made in Kentucky.  But best of all they donate 5% of the sale of Rudy Greens to an animal shelter in your area!  I am absolutely in love with this dog food and would strongly recommend trying, your dog will love you and thank you for it!

I would strongly recommend reading the tear jerking story of Rudy Green the adorable chocolate Labrador Retriever that inspired this pawsitively amazing company.

New Dog Food Made The Way You Would #InspiredbyCrafted

This post is sponsored by Hill’s. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ Crafted™, but Doggie Dog Madness only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc. is not responsible for the content of this article.

I try my best to incorporating a healthy life style for my family and Alle (whom is family) rather its from walking, drinking plenty of water, to eating healthy nutritious food.  And because I know the importance of living and eating healthy, I attempt to cook food for us and Alle on a daily basis.  Even though Alle tries to help out occasionally by being a pawesome sous chef, I am only human and don't always have the energy, time or resources to do so.  But with Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ Crafted™ your dog can have perfectly balanced dog food made the way you would. 

Hill’s Ideal Balance Crafted embraces this smaller, slower approach to ensure maximum consistency and quality.  Using only high quality meats, ancient grains like buckwheat and quinoa that supports healthy digestion.  Plus with nutritious vegetables and Alle's personal favorite, sweet potatoes!   

Ideal Balance Crafted uses protein like salmon, tuna, chicken and beef as their #1 ingredients in their dry dog food where usually that is only the case in wet dog food. Yeah! A protein is listed first!  And this new dog food is artisan crafted in the U.S. from only natural ingredients with no artificial colors, preservatives, corn, wheat or soy.  Also available in grain free!

Alle got to munch down on the Dry Oven Roasted Cuisine Grain-Free Herbed Chicken & Chickpeas. There are other flavors available.

One morning I was cuddling with Alle when I began to scratch her behind her ears like she puppy loves.  When I felt a bump on the left side of her neck right behind her ear I began to run my hands over it trying to figure out the source or cause of it.  I briefly thought it felt like a scratch with a little bit of dry blood.  Then I started to think about how much Alle was scratching her neck and ear area the day before after playing outside most of the day.  So I listened to my mother instinct and looked closer.  I moved her hair aside and shined a flash light on her bare skin.  I was sickened and horrified when I seen little legs moving on the small body of a tick that was attach to my poor dog!  It was war, momma bear claws came out and I just wanted to rip it off of Alle.  But I calmly removed it myself and took Alle in the next day to her vet for a checkup.

Most pets veterinary removes a tick for free but if you want to do it yourself here is some key points on the removal of ticks:
  • Make sure you are wearing gloves
  • Use tweezers or a tick removable device
  • With your tweezers gently put the tick on its back
  • Grab the tick firmly, as close to the skin as possible
  • Do not twist and turn the tick because doing so can break off the head
  • Once you remove the tick from your dog put it into alcohol 
*Do not use such methods like paint, nail polish, petroleum jelly to remove the tick it can cause the tick to pass infected saliva back to your dog which can increase disease transmission or even infection.

Ticks need a host to grow and survive or they die.  And can attach on to a host in about 30 seconds.  Once a tick finds a host they burrow into the skin with their mouthparts which are barbed to secure them to their host.  Next they regurgitate small amounts of saliva with neurotoxins that prevents the host from feeling irritation and pain of the bite.  Which is probably why the tick bite usually goes unnoticed.

I foolishly thought that since Alle was on tick repellent medicine she was safe but have found out the hard way that your pup can still get ticks.  So rub your dog down to check for ticks plus they will love all the attention you are giving them!
