Dehydrated vegetables, fruits, meat and fish can make a great tasty treat for your fur-baby. In case you did not know, the process of dehydrating food involves the removal of water in the food item in order to preserve and store it. This removal of moisture will inhibit the growth of bacteria, allowing food to stay safe for much longer than if it were fresh. This is the reason why all of our pet treat range (dehydrated or baked) requires no preservatives, chemicals and additives, and are 100% natural!
Dehydrated treats are an amazing treat for our fur-baby. Not only are they super delicious for your pets, the low heat used to slowly dry the food allows the the retention of most of nutrition found in fresh food. This makes it a super nutritious treat option for your dogs and cats. The dehydration process also helps with the elimination of any possible dangerous pathogens (e.g. Salmonella and E. coli).
Dehydrated treats are also easier to digest. This makes it especially ideal for pets that are older or are managing health problems. Moreover, they are a much more convenient treat to carry around compared to some raw foods because they are light, non-messy, compact and do not require refrigeration!
Making dehydrated pet treats can be incredibly easy! All you need is a single ingredient and an oven (or a dehydrator). Make sure that the ingredient that you select is completely safe for your pet, as some food healthy to us can be toxic to pets.
Here is a simple recipe you can follow, to make a tasty delicious treat and chew for your dog:
1 medium sized Sweet Potato (and that is it!)
These make an awesome delicious chew for your pooch that you can bring around easily with you, while still being packed with vitamins and minerals.
In short, dehydrated pet treats are a safe, healthy and convenient alternative to fresh and raw foods, while providing most of the nutritional benefits. This is why we provide a variety of 100% natural dried treats at The Golden Bone Bakery. From reward treats like our Lamb Crunchies and Mackerel Munchies for Cats, to our dental chews like our Sharkies or Roo Wings.
