oh and this is one comment I read about the feeding.
The only thing that worries me is that people may not rehydrate them with plenty of warm water. Much too high of protein to not reconstitute with plenty of water. You could easily raise the liver enzymes in a dog with undiagnosed asymptomatic MVD. And on top of that, really stresses and overworks the kidneys.
So we are going to use plenty of water for the malts and because I had this plan, I searched up further and found another feedback from another person who uses this food for his dog:
Here are a few tips with the freeze-dried Stella & Chewy's Dinners:
The freeze-dried can be rehydrated either in a bowl or on a plate, whichever you prefer (I use a bowl).
Rehydration goes faster if the patty is broken up and then the warm (NOT hot) water is poured over and then mixed.
Do not use hot water as it will begin to cook the product, thus lessening the nutrients and cooking the raw bone.
Water should not be much warmer than a baby bottle (test on inside of wrist).
Do not microwave as it will have the same effect of beginning to cook the product.
Feeding guidelines are just guidelines...they're neither too high, nor too low. You may need to adjust them based on your dog's needs.
I thought of sharing along what I read and learned (:
