Instructions
 

To Feed Raw

  • Grind the necks, heart and turkey liver

  • Puree the eggs, kale, broccoli, dandelion greens, berries, hemo seeds, green lipped mussel and salt in a food processor
  • Mix the ground beef, liver, heart and veggie/berry mix together
  • Place the mixture into smaller containers and place them in your freezer

  • Feed both the necks and the meat mixture together
  • If you don't grind the necks into the meat mixture, feed just the necks for one meal and the meat mix for the second meal.

Notes

We recommend feeding Safe-Sea daily to help balance your dog’s fatty acids. This will bring the omega-6/omega-3 ratio from 7:1 down to 4:1.
But don’t add any oil to the recipe directly. To reduce oxidation, you don’t want to expose the oil to oxygen for too long. Instead, give it daily with your dog’s meal.

IMPORTANT

The ingredients in this recipe have been carefully chosen to meet AAFCO minimum nutrition requirements for adult dogs. Don’t replace ingredients or vary the amounts too much … this may unbalance the food. The berries are optional but all other ingredients need to be in the recipe in the listed amounts.
