Dehydrated Food Recipes for Dogs
Want to make your pet a nutritious and tasty snack? Check out these five recipes for treats and suppers they will love!
Mix Blend of Dog Treats
You’ll need sliced sweet potatoes and bananas. Also, use up any leftover chicken, cooked celery, and carrots.
Place all these cooked ingredients in a food processor. Puree the chicken, celery, and carrots, then spread them on a silicone sheet that is on top of the dehydrator tray.
Place the banana and sweet potato slices on another rack. Bake these overnight at 125 degrees. Cut the chicken mixture into strips and lay them apart on the silicone sheet.
Continue to bake these until everything’s dried well. Remove pieces that dry quicker than others.
The drying process for these can take up to 24 hours.
Chicken Jerky Treats
This is a simple recipe that your canine will love! Buy skinless and boneless chicken breasts and trim off the fat.
Cut the chicken breasts into 1/8 thick pieces. Lay these slices out on your dehydrator tray and dry them out between 4 to 12 hours long.
Thicker slices will take longer to dehydrate. Wondering if it’s done? Slice a piece in half. If the middle is moisture free and dry, with the same color, you’ve got a finished treat.
Sweet Potato Dog Chews
This is a great treat and healthy. Scrub your yams or sweet potatoes. Don’t worry about peeling them, make sure you remove any green areas.
Slice them into 1/8 pieces. Once again, lay them out on the dehydrator tray. Dry them for 3 – 12 hours.
You’ll know they’re done if you can flex and twist them without it breaking apart. If you want to make a crunchier chew, slice the sweet potatoes into thinner slices.
