Remove from heat. Drain excess liquid. As when fat is cooked it turns into grease.

Step 3

How to cook potatoes for dogs

Cook the potatoes by boiling them in water. They can be mashed or cubed into bite size – depending on the preference of your dog. Begin checking the potatoes after around 5 minutes of boiling; most potatoes will be done in 10 to 20 minutes. The potatoes are done when they are tender all the way through. You can test this by poking the potato with a fork, paring knife, or skewer.

Step 4

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.

FAQ's

Can I feed my dog raw meat?

If you want to feed your dog raw meat that is a personal choice. It is highly recommended that you follow healthy basic food health safety standards.

  1. Wash all surfaces that come into contact with raw meat in hot water with soap.
  2. Clean the dogs bowl in hot water and soap between all feedings.
  3. Don't leave dog waste in the yard. Always wash hands with soap and hot water after picking up dogs waste.
  4. If there are elderly people, small children or those with compromised immune systems in the household it is recommended by the FDA, The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) to cook the meat in the dogs food recipes as pathogens i.e. salmonella and listeria could be potentially passed along to those who may have weakened immune systems.

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.
