These were on sale and I figured I’d give em a shot as the only listed ingredient was sweet potato and I wanted to see if Lilo would like it.
I’ve also wanted to buy a dehydrator for awhile and thus figured I’d see if the end product was appreciated in the first place.
Merrick offers Miss Porky Chews – a pork ear chew for dogs that is larger than most other pork ear chews due to being used from sows ears instead of “traditional pig ears”.
Right now I’m feeling very happy that I have the ability to steer away from meat and a need to chew on meaty things. This style of treat is not for the weak of stomach but if you can get over the initial shock factor it may be a great treat for your pup to enjoy.
2 1/4 cups of oat flour(or spelt/rice/barley flour/rye flour)
2 cans of salmon (213g each) – use the juice too.
1/4 cup mashed carrots/sweet potatoes
2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup of water
1) Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees
2) Use a blender/flood processor to puree the salmon, juice and water
3) Add garlic, carrots/sweet potatoes and eggs to the puree and blend.
4) Combine the mix the oat flour and blend together (should be slightly thicker than cake batter)
5) Spread the mixture onto a well greased cookie sheet/bake pan
6) Bake for ~20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean(like with cakes made for people)
7) Let cool, cut into strips and freeze any excess. Thaw as wanted.
Note: Making this mix too thick on the pan makes it harder to crumble later on.
