Pork is high in omega-6 fatty acids so it can be difficult to formulate a balanced recipe. Here we combined pork with fish to help balance out the fats and give your dog an anti-inflammatory diet that meets AAFCO minimum requirements for adult dogs. No grains, no synthetic vitamins and minerals.
NOTE: This food is for adult dogs only.
Makes 11.3 pounds of raw food. This is roughly a 5-6 day supply for a 50 pound dog. You may need to adjust the daily amount based on your dog’s breed and activity level.
Raw Pork & Fish Dog Food Recipe Ingredients:
5 pounds 96% lean ground pork
3 pounds pork heart
1 pound pork liver
1 pound non-farmed oily fish (like sardines or mackerel)
8 ounces (3 large stalks) kale
5 ounces (1-2 stalks) broccoli
4 ounces (2 chopped cups) dandelion greens
12 ounces (2 small clamshell packages) blueberries or mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and cranberries)
3 teaspoons wheat germ oil
1 Tablespoon hulled hemp seeds or hemp hearts
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
1.37 grams kelp powder
If you have a grinder, grind the pork heart and liver. If you don’t grind them, simply chop the liver and heart into small cubes.
Puree the kale, broccoli, dandelion greens, berries, bone meal, wheat germ oil, hemp seeds, salt and kelp in a food processor.
Mix the ground pork, liver, heart and veggie/berry mix together and mix thoroughly.
Place the mixture into smaller containers and place them in your freezer. It’s best to freeze your food in 1-3 day portions.
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.
