Try home made jerky, super easy to make, cheap, and you can make a bunch at once and freeze it

I buy freeze dried sweet potatoes, buffalo bites, salmon bites, and fruitables skinny treats. I avoid milk bone type biscuits - they are just too carby. I have given Maggie Merrick GI bones with no problems, small bully sticks and this little tripe twists, but I usually compensate by reducing her meal a bit if she gets a bone or bully stick. I avoid rawhides at all costs because they are hard to digest. I have found any treats made with liver, like duck liver or beef liver, spike her sugar. It may take some experimenting to find out.

Also, you can fill a Kong with chicken or turkey baby food, freeze it and the dogs love it. The Beech Nut brand doesn't have onion powder. You can also make some ice cubes with baby food.

Wow never even thought of that, or if I did, it slipped my mind! Now I just need to dig out my dehydrator, no clue where I put it.

Out of curiosity, how do you make yours? Do you use the oven or a dehydrator. I know my dehydrator is small, and needs to be on for a good 12-24 hours. Debating if using the oven is a better alternative.

Also, probably a strange question, but everytime ive ever made jerky, it doesnt last more than a few days. Do you store it in the fridge, or just in a regular container non refrigerated. About how long could each way be kept around? Thanks!

We use the oven. Take 2-3 boneless breasts and slice them as thin as you can while they are still semi-frozen. Bakes on foil lined cookie sheets at 200 for about 3 hours. When cool take a kitchen shears and cut into strips. We use then as rewards after shots and eye drops
