How to Serve Allprovide
Many of us find our pets can be reluctant or picky eaters, and have a hard time finding food they love. Some of us find joy in serving a freshly cooked meal to our pets. You can feed our ready-to-serve Gently Cooked Recipes, or gently cook our Raw Recipes yourself. Gently Cooked fresh foods are a great option if you have concerns about feeding Raw or even just a picky eater.
Serve with any liquid released during cooking, and your pet’s dinner will retain its natural nutrients.
Easy Cooking Instructions:
- Defrost frozen pouches in the refrigerator or on the counter.
- Preheat a nonstick skillet or pan on the stovetop low to medium heat. Add a splash of water or Broth for extra moisture.
- Open the pouch and add to the pan.
- Stir regularly. Cook gently for 3 to 5 minutes or until meat is lightly cooked (do not “brown” the meat). You just want the “pink” out.
- Cool completely before serving. Mix back in any separated liquids.
- Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
- When transitioning to any new food it is best to make the change over a few days.
- If mixing with a kibble, it’s a good idea to soak the kibble in warm water or appropriate liquid (like bone broth) before mixing with Allprovide.
- The addition of a probiotic or a small amount of canned pumpkin may also be helpful during the transition.
When handling any raw meat, there are simple tips to reduce potential exposure to bacteria:
- Wash your hands thoroughly after handling Allprovide, or any raw meat.
- Wash your pet’s bowl with hot soapy water after each use.
- Wipe down and wash any surfaces used to prepare your pet’s meal with an antibacterial soap or cleaner.
- Store any raw meat at the bottom of your fridge, preferably in an air-tight sealed container – this avoids any drips and cross-contamination.
- Do not leave your pet’s food out for an extensive length of time. If not eaten within thirty minutes or more, cover the bowl and put it back in the fridge.
- We recommend pre-portioning and freezing any extra food you don’t plan to feed after 72 hours of defrosting.
- Re-portioned, frozen food is best offered up to 3 months after freezing for optimal nutrition.
