Our dehydrated food is simple and easy to make. Simply add the dry mix to very hot water and let sit/cool for 5-10 mins or overnight. The general ratio of hot water to dry mix is 2-3:1, i.e: 2-3 cups of hot water to 1 cup of dry mix depending on your dogs preferred consistency(thicker or thinner). Our food may be heated in the microwave, on the stove top, in the oven, or simply in a bowl with boiling water poured over it. The method of heating is completely up to you and none of these methods will disrupt the nutrient content of the food since hot liquid is needed to properly “rehydrate” the food.
