If you have dogs and would like to make your own meat snacks for them check out how to dehydrate meats for your dog. In this article you will see how to make jerky along with dehydrated snacks from pigs ears, tripe, liver,salmon, sea bass, chicken, rabbit, hearts, kidneys and even a couple of fruits and vegetable. So many dogs have been poisoned from eating snack brought in from overseas that it just makes sense to want to make your own so you know what you will be giving your fur buddy. Some of the meats used in the article are pretty inexpensive.
If you can find the pigs ears I think the dogs would love them dehydrated because they would probably be similar to rawhide. Tripe is not very expensive and liver has always been and inexpensive meat. Dehydrate a bunch and stick some into the freezer, that way you won’t have to make them so often. Yet your dog or dogs will be getting wholesome, homemade meat treats and no bad additives to make them ill. These recipes come from BDWS in the Uk. I love that they tell you to finish the meats off for 10 minutes in the oven after they have been dehydrated. It is nice that they let you know to do this to kill any pathogens that may still be on the meat.
