Hello Everyone

Hi. I am new to the forum, and thought i should introduce myself. My name is Katrina...most call me Kat. And I live in Alberta, Canada. Haven't filled out all pertinent info yet on me, but basically I am interested in everything concerning little dogs in general...and very interested in making your own dog food.
I have been making dog food for quite a while now, and treats...but now want to make my own dog bones (rawhide), and am trying to locate a place to by powdered rawhide. I can get my own beefhide, so that is not a problem, but I am interested in making some different ones as well. Anyone have a recipe on making these?
My animals are not on processed store bought junk, and I have a ****zu/Maltese cross male, that the vets cannot believe is still alive...yes, he is ancient, in good health, and he thinks he is a puppy. I do know though that he may be starting into arthritis, as he does seem to walk stiff in the mornings now. He appears to be in no pain, yet though. Will have to take him back to the vets to check this out though, as an animal will refuse to show vulnerability in some cases ... and with him, it is the norm not to.
Anyhow, I am going on here....
Hello to everyone, and have a great day!

Welcome to ~ we would love to see a pic of your "old" boy! Many members on the forum are homemade/raw feeders but I can honestly say I've never come across anyone who wanted to make "raw-hide". :D
