NO NEED TO KILL IT! IT’S ALREADY DEAD!

Just a reminder that I prefer you to either feed raw, uncooked meat or lightly cooked meat = 8/10 minutes of cooking.

There is no need to freeze meet if you lightly cook as the heat will deal with any parasitic burden.

Raw meat it’s a good idea to freeze first if it’s not been purchased from a DEFRA licenced raw dog food company.

Cooking through, does have a place in certain circumstances. But my preference is Uncooked or lightly cooked.

It’s well documented that I lightly cook my pets food:

A. They prefer it,

B. It’s the closest to nature as I serve it at around 38 degrees, blood temperature of a ‘kill’.

C. Freezing does loose some vitamin content is estimated around 8/11% especially vitamin C. Interestingly vitamin C isn’t a requirement of FEDIAF! When I formulate raw pet foods, I always make certain that we cover the vitamin C loss after freezing and in some cases refreezing! (That’s what balancing to FEDIAF & beyond means).

D. No need to worry about parasites as the heat deals with this.

I never use ‘high’ or ‘fast’ heat when cooking meat for dogs or cats! I’ve written quite a bit about this. Basically it makes the meat tough.

Duck Gizzards

The Queeniechi gang enjoyed their free range, duck gizzards today!

They were smacking their lips for ages! I warmed them for a few mins and fed them with the rest of their food.

Warmed them a little but uncooked. Yummy in their tummies!

DISCLAIMER:

My dogs ate a totally unbalanced to FEDIAF/AFFCO meal today. I don’t ever recommend doing this as it could result in your dog wanting more and more delicious fresh food and refusing to eat:
DEAD INORGANIC – HIGHLY PROCESSED – MOISTURE DEPLETED – LONG SHELF LIFE – BORING AS FUCK FOOD!

You’re very welcome.

With love

Flick your light back on🙌🏻

Life doesn’t always work out anything like we imagined it would! 

We loose hearts along the way & find new ones to replace them. We push some away & pull others to us. 

After they’ve gone we remember some dearly with warmth & fondness & hold the memories close some we forget forever. 

Whatever your situation is don’t forget to to share your love freely, deeply & madly.

Life is super short go be generous & genuine.
