Doggy Blood Pudding D.I.Y


Well that sounds unappealing doesn't it! Well, not if you're a dog!


What is Blood Pudding? Chia seed pudding is made traditionally with chia seeds and water, we've swapped out the water for a more functional ingredient being Australian Freeze Dried Blood aka My Doggie Crack.


Why make Blood Pudding?

Yummy & Healthy!

  • Blood & Chia seeds are a good source of protein

  • Blood is a good source of iron

  • Bloods & Chia seeds contain anti-oxidants

  • Chia seeds are a good source of ALA omega-3 fatty acids which are anti-inflammatory

  • Chia seeds are a great source of fibre for digestive health

  • Chia seeds contain calcium, phosphorus & magnesium

How do you make it?

First we start with Australian Freeze Dried Bovine Blood available from the My Doggie range

Weigh out 5 grams of freeze dried blood.

Add your 5 grams of freeze dried blood to 500mls of water and mix in, then allow to sit to hydrate for around 20 minutes and then give it another stir.

Measure out 1/4 cup of chia seeds, I have used an organic version.

Add to the hydrated freeze dried blood powder

Then mix in. Come back over the next 30 minutes and stir around 3 times. when done it should feel gloggy so you know the chia seeds have absorbed as much liquid as they can.

Pop in a container that you will leave in the fridge and use up within 2 days and freeze the remainder.


How much to give your dog?

Chia is quite potent so you'll only need 1 teaspoon for small dogs or 2 teaspoons for large, or 1/4 teaspoon for every 5 kilos of your dog’s body weight.


If you have a dog with a sensitive tummy, start off slowly and build up due to the fibre level.


Chia is a food not a supplement so you won't over dose on it perse' - if you give too much too soon you may see an upset tummy.


You should allow 2-4 weeks for you to notice differences in your dog i.e. coat.


If you would like to give Chia Seed pudding regularly, I would recommend you rotate through different liquids such as Kefir, bone broth, water and hydrated freeze dried blood.
