    This is totally off subject of the Vegas Stew, but I have a question for you. I noticed when you went to get Vegas that the baby gate appeared to just be leaning on the wall and Vegas was standing there, being ever-the-gentleman that he is. Doe she not try to push it down? I have to keep a baby gate across our laundry room (kitty boxes are in there) and would love to not have to put the gate up all the time-seems to be marking up the door frame. If what I saw was correct, do you have any suggestions on how to keep Rosie from pushing the gate over (and helping herself to some steaming piles of kitty )?

    I'm not really helpful here, but Ruckus just waits patiently on the other side of the gate too. I lean it up as a training tool so he doesn't jump on visitors when they come in. He waits until I move it and mist of the time his initial excitement is over and he's fine. With him it was like he just knew we didn't want him through the "blocked" area.

    I know this is an old post but my Bailey has been on Vegas Stew for a few months and he LOVES it. He has already lost 7 pounds. I mix it with his yucky perscription food and it really works. I couldn't be happier.

    Thanks again for sharing...

    Made Vegas Stew for Princess while she is on her heartworm treatment since she isn't allowed to exercise or play for 2 months. I'm really hoping she will loose about 5-8 lbs! I made the recipe as you stated with all fresh veggies and the canned tomatoes, I also added carrots, celery, and a very little amount of Thyme and low sodium beef broth. The verdict is she LOVES it! As you can tell from the pics, she's a very messy eater! But she always gets every last crumb lol! I even gave a tiny bit to Gio and Diva and they loved it as well! Gio literally hates all veggies but he ate this right up as if it was a bowl of cheeseburgers lol! Thank you @Libra926! I will be making this every weekend and freezing half so it stays fresh for the end of the week!

    I realize this post is older but I have a couple questions....first I read that tomatoes can cause tremors in canines? I have also read that canines do not have the correct enzymes to process fruits and vegetables properly mainly because they are carnivores. To the contrary, most really good dog foods add fruits and veggies and we do for our dogs. I would love to make a stew like this for our crew! We have 12 fur babies and currently feed dry kibble with boiled meat (fish, chicken, eggs, liver or beef) in it.

    This stew is designed for humans, but it was recommended by his vet to help Vegas lose weight. He was almost 70 pounds at the age of 2 and after we started him on this diet he lost almost 20 pounds. He is now a healthy 52 pounds. He has not been on this diet for almost 2 years, yet he still maintains this wonderful weight. I've not heard that tomatoes cause tremors. If I removed tomatoes from Orion's diet, she would be very upset. This is one baby girl who loves loves loves tomatoes

    Will do! Our 2 year old boy is nearly 70 lbs but he is very lean and thick but definitely not fat. We give fresh meat in their dry kibble, but I always like to try to mix it up a bit and what better and healthier way than some fresh veggies ;-)

    I stumbled on this today. I think I'm going to make it for Dudley....this is basically the old Weight Watchers soup...the only things missing are the garlic and onions -- for obvious reasons. I'll make a big ol' pot of this version and Mommy and Dudley can both eat it...I'll just use low sodium versions. Thanks!
