yes you can freeze it - in portion sizes

Mo makes gnocci (sp) with potato flour and sometimes will do large ones and stick in the porridge she also does something similar with gram (sp) flour - not sure if it the same thing  ::) and if i ask....will get you been eating it for years blah blah  ::)

ok - the porridge needs to be stodgy - about 50% meat and 50% veggies/oats or other carb like pasta - he will need the equiv of 3/4 naturdiet carton - like a takeaway container for a portion of rice - plus a mug of wholemeal terrier type mixer

I freeze mine into portions, rice freezes better than the pasta which tends to mush into one big lump after defrosting!  Not like Izzy cares tho  :D

couple of questions about foods, are prawns the same as tuna and salmon ie as bottom feeders i presume they have alot of things bad for doggies in them?

also i saw bag of so called frozen meat called anglian or something it looks like it is just meat when i looked at the back of the bag, but does anyone know anything about it was reasonably priced and our iceland has stopped alot of its frozen meat to make room for all the xmas stuff.

anglian meats are ok - my lot like prawns - they love the shells too off the big ones - but then they not fussy eaters - not sure if i would give them the frozen ones as they are coated in something or other - so mo says anyway - but fresh should be fine

Prawnd for a dog LOL I have heard it all now

Anglian meats are a good company they do a range of frozen meats if you have the freezer space they will deliver even cheaper but there is a mimimum order
