Preparation

Step 1:

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.

Step 2:

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.

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.
