|I feel a bit silly asking this, but I need some advice. How long does it take to rehydrate a Stella & Chewy's patty? Do you put it in a cup to rehydrate, or on a plate? Once hydrated, is it okay to put it in the microwave to warm up the patty or is that a bad idea since there's bone in it? Is using really hot water okay or will it cook the bone?
I tried giving Pookie a piece of a patty this weekend and had it on a plate. It took what seemed like a long time to rehydrate, and by the time it was softened enough to break apart, it was cold and he's used to room temperature food (I warm up his canned in the microwave for a few seconds before giving it to him). So the next time I tried it, I put it in a teacup with really warm water and that seemed to work a little better. I thought about using really hot water but worried I would accidentally cook the patty, which has bone in it.
Any tips? Oh, one other question: is the amount to feed on the bag correct, or do they overestimate? On other foods, the feeding amounts tend to be higher than what's really needed, and I'm wondering if that's the case here. Otherwise Pookie would be getting about 4 patties a day (he's 13 lbs.). I'm not ready to go all raw, but he's getting picky with his canned food and I want to have some options.
Thank you so much!!!
