This recipe will yield approximately 7 3/4 lbs of food. Equating to 4,431 calories (Kcals) Approximately enough servings of food for one week for an 20 lb dog to maintain weight.
In a large skillet or pot place cubed or ground bison. Add just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer gently for about 30 minutes or until bison is cooked.
Remove from heat. Drain excess liquid.
Add fresh or frozen peas to the cooked meat. The heat will lightly cook the peas.
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.
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 per 1 teaspoon.
When the meat, peas 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 1/4 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
