DIY – Sweet Potato Chews

Prepare for your dog these single ingredient fiber – and vitamin-rich treats.

All you need is raw sweet potato. Pure, easy, and unadulterated, dog treats don’t get any healthier, easier or less expensive than this.

Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 250° F. 2. Scrub the sweet potato or yam. No need to peel. 3. Cut it into thin slices (the thinner the slice the shorter the cooking time) and place on a cookie sheet in a single layer. 4. Bake in oven at 250° F for about 3 hours for slightly chewy treats or bake slightly longer to get them crunchy. Note: timing will vary according to the thickness of your slices; just keep an eye on them. Or, better yet, if you have a dehydrator, pop them in there instead of the oven.

Tip: Sweet potatoes are a source of fiber, vitamins B6 and C, beta carotene and manganese. Most dogs love the chewy seetness of a delish dehydrated sweet potato treat. And you can rest easy knowing there’s no additives, preservatives or anything extraneous addend. (19.10.2017)
