Monsoons call for brothy, soupy, and nutritious meals for breakfast and dinner for your pets. We must serve them food that nourishes their body and keeps them warm and healthy. At Petfeast, we make a whole lot of broths and soups in this season. Here’s presenting two of our bowl-licking pet meals for your doggos and cats!

Barley, Oats & Chicken Dinner 


  • 1/4 cup barley soaked for 1/2 hour, and rinsed well
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 100 gms of cooked chicken mince (Saute mince chicken in 1 tsp coconut oil for 4–5 minutes)
  • 1/4 cup of shredded carrots
  • 2 tbsp shredded cabbage
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 tsp grated ginger
