Step 3

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 sweet 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

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.

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.
