Roast the soya beans and groundnuts to remove the shaft. Then grind together with the other items. Grind the corn and the soya beans first cos they are the hardest

Put some cups of water on the fire, and pour some proportion of the items into it and start stirring like ur making pap. For puppies don't make it thick. Let it be watery. But for adolescent and adults, u can make it thick. Add some spoon of milk to it. Add a little palm oil, olive oil and maybe honey. Add a little salt and vegetable. U can get moringa to leave grind it and add. If you have a carrot or other forms of vegetables u can add to.

With most dogs, u might introduce the food to them gradually just as you should do when introducing any other new meal. First, two days add 25% of new meal to old meal. Third and fourth day add 50% of new meal to 50% of old meal. 5th and 6th day add 75% of new meal to old meal and then after that you give 100% new meal.

On a general note if your dog does not have the appetite to eat you might need to give them multivitamin appetizers to make them hungry. B complex for dogs works fine.
