Dog Food Recipes

INGREDIENTS:

7 oz (raw weight), salmon, cooked
1 1/2 cups lentils, cooked (1/2 cup dry lentils) 
4 teaspoons Azestfor Homemade Dog Food Vitamins

YIELD:

This recipe will yield approximately 1 lbs of food. Equating to 819 calories (Kcals) Approximately enough servings of food for 2 days for an 32 lb dog to maintain weight.


PREPARATION:

STEP 1:

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.

STEP 2:

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.

STEP 3:

When the fish and lentils are cool to touch you can add the Azestfor nutritional supplements. Combine all ingredients and serve.

STORAGE:

The recipe can be prepared in large batches and frozen. It will keep for up to a year in the freezer, or one week in the fridge. Freezing vitamins preserves their potency. I would recommend portioning the food into meal size servings before freezing it. To defrost a frozen meal – put it in the fridge overnight.

​FEEDING GUIDELINES:

We suggest dividing the daily amount into two servings, one in the morning and one in the evening. Every dog’s nutritional requirements are a little bit different due to age & amount of exercise. If your dog is losing weight, increase food by 1/4 cup a day, if they are gaining weight reduce accordingly.
