Dehydrated vegetables, fruits, meat and fish can make a great tasty treat for your fur-baby. In this blog post we will be covering:

  • The benefits of dehydrated fruit 
  • Quick and easy recipe for dehydrated fruit your dog will love

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!

Benefits of dehydrated pet treats

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!

Recipe just for you

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!)

  1. Preheat oven to 130°C.
  2. Slice potatoes into ¼ inch thickness into coins or strips. Cutting them into thinner slices will make them crispy and not chewy.
  3. Lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake for about 2.5 – 3 hours flipping once half way through until dried out and shrunken.
  5. Let cool and store in air-tight container.

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.
