I use a food processor to finely mince the broccoli & carrots. Dogs can’t digest cellulose in vegetables. So, it’s important to break the cell wall of the veggies so they are able to get the nutrients from the vegetable content. This recipe is balanced only when Hilary’s Blend Supplement is used and recipe INGREDIENTS and recipe AMOUNTS are followed.
I choose to (poach) the fish because raw fish contains an enzyme (thiaminase) which can break down vitamin B1, causing vitamin B1 deficiency. Cooking the fish eliminates this enzyme.
