March 2020 NRC Recipe
The National Research Council (NRC) for dogs and cats has established minimum and recommended allowances (RA) for essential nutrients to maintain optimal health. Sometimes pet parents need a convenient option to feeding raw to their dog.
This month’s free NRC recipe is focused on providing a balanced raw recipe using chicken and beef proteins while minimizing fat content for adult dogs who are sensitive to high fat meals. The use of cooked sweet potato is added to the recipe to increase the amount of carbohydrates to where higher fat is typically present.
The recipe is made balanced as is, ingredient substitutions will affect nutritional balance. This recipe is made to be fed as is without ingredient substitutions. Be sure to use basic food handling and safety practices when preparing raw food.
