I think we are just going to buy a food dehydrator and make our own snacks for Chester. The ones we used to get from PetSmart..some dehydrated chicken strips :eek: , they do not sell any longer. And with his recent ear infection and the vet saying it was probably due to his treats.. I could have bought a dehydrator for the $$ in vet bills. So, all natural for Chessie.. but what should I put in there?

You could make sweet potato french fries, bannana slices, apple slices, and yes- you can even dehydrate chicken or beef as well.

I have not done it yet, but I want to! Let me know how it goes!!!!

Havent used it for my boys but I do make beef jerky for us and you could easily do it for the pups, just not so much seasoning. Not sure what seasoning would be ok to even use as flavor but they would be happy with none I bet. Yes any fruit is good. Apples, apricots, bananas, etc. I SO need to get mine out and quit talking about making the boys snacks. lol

Well do you think that there may be some flavorings that would be good to add? I cant think of any since garlic and onion is out but you know how they say there are so many that are good for us humans, maybe something is good for them? Natural would be good to, considering ho crazy my boys go for beef butcher bones.
