How to poach salmon for dogs
Place salmon in a pan on top of the stove, add water to just cover fish.
Cover and cook until salmon is opaque throughout, about 5 minutes (longer for thicker fillets). Using a wide slotted spatula, remove salmon from liquid.
It is important that all bones are removed from the fish. Bone splinters can pierce your dogs digestive system.
Prepare lentils for dog food recipe
Cook lentils on a stove top, using 1 1/2 cups of water for the 1/2 cup of dry lentils. Be sure to use a large enough saucepan as the lentils will triple in size. Bring to a boil, cover tightly, reduce heat and simmer until they are tender. For whole lentils, cook time is typically 15-20 minutes.

To defrost a frozen meal – put it in the fridge overnight.
We suggest dividing the daily amount into two servings, one in the morning and one in the evening.
