Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Prepare a roasting pan by spraying it with nonstick cooking spray.
Roast duck for 20-25 min.
Until done through with no internal redness or blood.
Remove bones from meat and discard. The cooking process makes bones more brittle, increasing the likelihood they might splinter and cause internal injury to your dog.

Step 2

Cover beans with water and discard any beans that float. Rinse beans well and place in a large pot. Cover by 2 to 3 inches with cold water. Place over high heat and bring to a boil; lower heat and simmer, covered, until softened, about 1 1/2 hours.

Step 3


Slice or dice the carrots to a bite size appropriate for your dog. Simmer the carrots in a little water until tender, until a fork can easily pierce them. Drain and let cool.

When the meat, rice and carrots are cool to touch you can add the Azestfor nutritional supplements.

Heat destroys the potency of vitamins.

If you are adding the Azestfor just before serving you would add 1 1/3 teaspoons Azestfor Homemade Dog Food Vitamins per 1 cup of homemade dog food.

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.
