I have been thinking about how I could better incorporate our dog's powdered D2 vitamins from D is for Dogs in with their dry dog food. Well, I am pleased to say I think I found the answer and from both Tibby's and Paczki's (our Schnoodles) faces I must say they agree.
1Take your leftover whole chicken and place in a pan with several cups of water and let it come to a boil and then keep on a medium heat for 1/2 hour or so. Remove from heat and let sit till cool and then remove remaining meat from bones. If necessary, chop up the remaining pieces so that it will fit in ice cube trays. Add a little chicken broth from pan and the rest water. Now add back to a smaller pan and add your powdered vitamin formula according to weight of dogs. Stir until it is dissolved. One ice cube per dog.
2One scoop of mixture per ice cube. So, I put 14 scoops.
3You are ready to fill the ice trays.
4When they are frozen you can remove from freezer and run hot water on the bottom of ice tray to release the cubes. Take one and place in a small sauce pan.
5Place the remaining cubes in a freezer bag and back in the freezer.
6Melt down the ice cube.
7Now pour over your dogs dry food and stir.
9Ask them how it tasted and if they liked it and this is the response you will get.
10Quote from D Is For Dogs:
“All nutrients, Vitamins and Anti-oxidants within the mushroom are completely heat stable. That is the beauty of Mushrooms! They don't lose any nutritional value with heat. Since the Ergo calciferol (D2) is in the mushroom and not a separate ingredient, the same applies. This has been tested at Medallion labs multiple times with our products.”
