Ingredients for Rabbit-Quinoa Homemade Dog Food Recipe

Poor food quality is one of the banes of dog food allergies. So make sure your first step is getting clean, wholesome foods from reputable purveyors. Buy government-inspected food products. We recommended good quality food stuff here you can get on Amazon and other online stores. But feel free to get yours from any other suppliers.

  1. Quinoa : is probably the most hypoallergenic of all the grains. It is high in protein with about 15% of its content. Quinoa also contains dietary fiber, phosphorus, magnesium and iron.
  2. Rabbit meat (Organic): is one of the most hypoallergenic meat. It is safe for allergic dog. It is very reach in protein and other nutrients like Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, Iron, Vitamin B6, Magnesium and Cobalamin. It has Omega 3 than chicken or pork and its protein is very digestible.
  3. Canola oil : It has high level of monosaturated fatty acid. This is completely different from rapeseed oil. Rapeseed oil is toxic because it contains large amounts of a poisonous chemical called erucic acid. Canola was developed using traditional plant breeding techniques by Canadian plant breeders to remove the anti-nutritional components (erucic acid and glucosinolates) from rapeseed to assure its safety for human and animal consumption. Canola got its name from “Can” from Canada and “ola” as abbreviation of “oil low acid”. Canola is not rapeseed.
    • Oilseed products that do not meet this standard cannot use the trademarked term “Canola.” Canola oil is widely recognized as the healthiest salad and cooking oil available to consumers. Its unique fatty acid profile, rich in oleic acid and low in saturated fats, makes it particularly beneficial for the prevention of heart disease.
  4. Kelp : is a seaweed that grows in nutrient-rich, shallow saltwater. It is a natural source of food supplements. As salt is one of the sources of food poisoning for dog, it is a good substitute for salt. It contains fat, protein, carbohydrate, vitamins (like B1, B2, B3, B5, B9, C, E and K) and minerals (like calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc). It is effective for solving dog’s bad breath and teeth plague.

Rabbit-Quinoa Homemade Dog Food Cooking Method

Our method of cooking is Moist-Heat method. Moist-heat methods are those in which the heat is conducted to the food product by water or water-based liquids such as broth, stock and sauces, or by steam. The method includes Boiling – 212°F (100°C), Simmering – 185°F to 205°F (85°C to 96°C) and Poach – 160°F to 180°F (71°–82°C).

Cooking Procedure:

1. Tie the rabbit(s). This step is recommended because it keeps the rabbit from falling apart. This also ensures even-cooking, preventing overcooking of some parts.

2. Place the rabbit(s) in a stockpot.

3. Pour boiling water till the rabbit is covered and heat at (212°F) 100°C to return to a boil. Skim the scum carefully.

4. Add the kelp, celery, carrot, bay leaf, parsley stem, peppercorn and whole cloves.

5. Simmer at 185°F (85°C) for about 2 hours 30 minutes until the rabbit feel tender when pressed on the thigh.

6. Remove the rabbit from the liquid, place in another pan, and cover till needed. Strain the broth. Keep the broth and the filtered separately in appropriate containers and cover them.

Make sure these items are not kept unrefrigerated for about 1 hour at a stretch. If you are not using the rabbit, the filtered and the broth immediately please cool them on ice-water bath and refrigerate below 41°F (5°C).

7. Place quinoa in a fine mesh strainer and holding under cold running water till it is thoroughly rinsed (that when the water runs clear), drain well.

8. Pour 2 cups of the rabbit broth into a saucepan, add the rinsed quinoa and the canola oil and heat at 212°F (100°C) till boiling. Add the apple cider vinegar and flax oil and stir once or twice. Reduce heat to low 185°F (85°C). Cover the pan and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes (or until water is absorbed and quinoa is tender).

If you have some broth left you can use it for yourself or keep it refrigerated below 41°F (5°C).

9. Remove saucepan from heat and let it stands 5 minutes. Fluff quinoa with fork.

10. Shred the rabbit to remove all the bones. Then cut the rabbit to size.

11. Sprinkle the bone powder to make up for removed bones. Then mix all together.
