TCVM Energetically Balanced Cat Food Recipe: Food Therapy Backed by Veterinarians

Use TCVM Food Therapy to Energetically Balance Your Pet

Food Chart for Dogs

Choosing food for your pet can be tricky! This is exactly why we created the PET | TAO recipes. PET | TAO recipes combine Eastern Food Therapy with Western Nutritional Science to provide the most holistic option available in food today.

The goal of Eastern Food Therapy is harmony in the body. Some pets are already energetically balanced, some are not.

PET | TAO is divided into basic categories: Harmony recipes and Solution recipes. Harmony recipes maintain your pet’s energetic balance. Solution recipes help bring your pet into energetic balance.

Using Eastern Food Therapy, you will create balance, prevent disease, and give your pet a longer life.

Below is a list of our favorite TCVM food therapy slow cooker pet food recipes. We offer both dog food and cat food recipes. (Please scroll down for cat food recipes.)

(You should always consult with a veterinarian when learning to cook for your pet!)

Note: Please consult with your veterinarian and use personal judgment when cooking at home for your pet. Even though pet food recalls and the poor quality of some pet foods are a concern, many veterinarians voice concerns over homemade diets. Some vets feel that when fed exclusively, homemade diets may result in vitamin/mineral deficiencies that can adversely affect a pet’s health. If you choose to feed your dog a homemade diet, you must understand and meet your dog’s needs to stay healthy. Please share our recipe with your veterinarian.  Your veterinarian can advise you on supplements for your pet’s individual situation. Monitor your dog’s health by observing his/her temperament, skin, coat, and waste. If you notice anything strange, contact your veterinarian immediately.
