This recipe is made with duck, chickpeas and carrots which will keep your dog satisfied. In addition to being a meal option for dogs with common protein allergies it is grain free.
Cooking Duck for Dogs
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.
Preparing chickpeas for grain free duck dog food recipe
Cover chickpeas with water and discard any chickpeas that float. Rinse chick peas 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.
Prepare Carrots for Healthy Duck Dog Food
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.
Add homemade dog food vitamins to grain free duck dog food
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.

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.
