We started making the wet food for Lucie and Vinnie about 2 years ago. While we were on vacation, at some point, all the meat in the freezer defrosted and we did not know how long it had been that way. We came home to a freezer door that was wide open. None of the meat smelled or looked bad, but we could not take a chance on it for us, and dogs have a much higher tolerance level to foodborne illnesses than we do, so they were treated to a wide variety of meats, mixed with different vegetables and fruits, as well as potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice, lentils, etc. We’ve been doing it this way ever since. It costs about the same or even slightly less, but most importantly, we know exactly what is going into their food, and it is very healthy for them. We want them to eat and be healthy. They always seem to know when Mommy is making their food too, although they are always ready to help out in the kitchen no matter what I am cooking. By looking at the way they chow down their food, I am going to go out on a limb and say they liked it.
Fritzie, my assistant, is helping to prepare everything. The kids are eating pork loin, rice, lentils, zucchini and yellow squash cooked in canola oil, and finished with yogurt. No spices for the kids. They may be able to handle foodborne illness better than we do, but spices are a big no-no. This mixed, with their dry food, will last about 1 week.
