Cook the turkey by roasting it. Approximate cook time at 350 degrees 3 hours.
It is important that all bones are removed from the cooked turkey.
Let the turkey cool than dice the turkey into bit size chunks. Shredding it is also fine. The turkey is cooked when the juices inside run clear.
Choose plain pumpkin with no added sugar or spices.
Place a small to medium pot on the stove and fill it with no more than 1 or 2 inches of water. Bring the water to a rolling boil. It’s important not to put enough water in the pot to completely cover the corn. Add the frozen loose corn. Let the corn cook until tender and heated thru.

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.
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.Weight of Dog
