Prepare Ground Beef For Dog Food

In a large skillet or pot place cubed or ground beef. Add just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer gently for about 30 minutes or until beef is cooked. ​

Remove from heat. Drain excess liquid.



Prepare Peas for Homemade Pet Food

Add fresh or frozen peas to the cooked meat. The heat will lightly cook the peas



Cook the Asparagus

Rinse the asparagus under running water. Place asparagus in a saucepan and cover with a few inches of water in a saucepan. When the water starts to boil, cook for 5 minutes. If you wish, use a microwave-safe cooking dish to boil asparagus in the microwave. Fill the cooking dish with 1/4 cup water, then add the spears and place the lid on the dish. Cook the asparagus on your microwave oven’s high power setting for 3 minutes, then open the door and stir. Finish cooking until the spears are just barely tender, about 3 to 4 more minutes. ​

Chop asparagus to small bite sizes.



Add Sunflower Oil

Sunflower oil is added as a source of linoleic acid. If you would like a substitute oil you can add Wheat germ, Walnut or Corn oil in the amount of 1.2 teaspoons.



Add Vitamins & Minerals

When the meat, asparagus, and peas are cool to touch you can add the Azestfor nutritional supplements. If you are adding the Azestfor just before serving you would add 1 1/4 teaspoons Azestfor Homemade Dog Food Vitamins per 1 cup of homemade dog food.

Heat destroys the potency of vitamins.

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.​

Weight of Dog:

5 lbs to maintain weight 2/3 cup (4.4 oz) per day

10 lbs to maintain weight 1 cups ( 7.5 oz) per day

15 lbs to maintain weight 1 1/2 cups ( 10.5 oz) per day

20 lbs to maintain weight 2 cups ( 13 oz) per day

30 lbs to maintain weight 2 1/2 cups (17.5 oz) per day

40 lbs to maintain weight 3 cups (20 oz) per day

50 lbs to maintain weight 3 2/3 cups (25.5 oz) per day

60 lbs to maintain weight 4 1/4 cups (29.5 oz) per day

70 lbs to maintain weight 4 3/4 cups ( 33 oz) per day

80 lbs to maintain weight 5 1/4 cups (36.5 oz) per day

90 lbs to maintain weight 5 3/4 cups ( 40 oz) per day



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.
