*WAGSTA Oil Blend Recipe

This oil blend provides your dog with essential EPAs, DHAs , linolenic acids, linoleic acids required for optimal health.

10 ml Fish Oil  (Do not substitute fish oil with cod liver oil.)

30 ml Canola Oil

30 ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil

30 ml Sunflower Oil

Mix the 4 oils together. Add 12.5 ml (2 and 1/2 teaspoons) of oil blend to your recipe.

*The above recipe provides enough oil blend for 8 WAGSTA recipes.

Batch Cooking

To prepare multiple batches of food, simply multiply the ingredient weights by the number of batches you wish to make.

Remember to add supplements in proportion to the number of batches you make.

e.g. a 6-day meal supply for a dog consuming 480 kcal per day equates to 2880 kcals (6 x 480 kcal).

To meet this calorie requirement, you will need to cook 3 batches of this 1000 kcal recipe.

Add 3 x the normal supplement dose  (7 & 1/2 x teaspoons oil blend, 3 x zinc tablets, 3 x multi-vitamin tablets, 4500 mg calcium, 3/4 teaspoon of iodised salt.)

After weighing and portioning your batched meals, there will be a small surplus- in this case representing the extra 120 kcal (3000-2880 kcal). Weigh the surplus and freeze for future when feeding the same recipe.
