How should I prepare the food?
We suggest removing the quantity you need from the freezer and placing it in the fridge the night before feeding.. To avoid meat sticking to the plastic, prepare the food by cutting and peeling off the casing in the morning when the product is half frozen (also try running under warm water for 15-30 seconds - if over night refrigeration is not possible).
