Safe Treats? Make Your Own!

With all the recent recalls, many pet owners wonder if there truly is a “safe” treat.

Why not make your own?

It doesn’t have to be diffiHappy-Dog-Picturecult or even expensive with a dehydrator. Don’t have one? No problem, warm up that oven and create healthy and safe treats for your dog.

Jerky is one of the easiest treats you can make for your pet. Take meat or even sweet potatoes, cut into strips of even thickness; coat baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray and preheat the oven to 170 degrees. Bake your strips for 6-7 hours checking and turning each strip every hour so they dry evenly.

NOTE: Do NOT bake or dehydrate jerky treats to where they are excessively dry and hard; sharp edges could potentially injure your dog’s sensitive digestive system.
