You will need

For one meal (half daily allowance) based on a 10kg adult dog

90g of diced chicken or turkey

10g of ground or pureed vegetables. We recommend carrot, broccoli, butternut squash or leafy greens.

Avoid other root vegetables such as potato or swede and peas. 
No onion

x 1 Teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar


x 1 Dessertspoon raw egg and half the egg shell - the egg shell is replacing the calcium and phosphorous that you would normally get with the ground bone you find in commercial raw diets and complete home-made diets.

x 1 Teaspoon Salmon oil or Flax oil

10g offal e.g. lambs liver, kidney or heart (at least twice a week)

 

 

Method

1. Place all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix throughly.

2. Can be fed immediately or alternatively, place the mix into a suitable container and place in the fridge for up to 3 days.

3. If you wish to freeze it, place in a suitable container. Be sure to clearly label the container with the date. Can be kept frozen for up to 3 months. Defrost thoroughly before use.

Always wash your hands throughly after handling raw meat.
