I have a dehydrator and dehydrate a lot of foods for my dogs. I was wondering if dehydrated orange peels with just the peel would be safe for them to chew on.

I would wash the oranges real good to remove any pesticides that been sprays on them . Have you asked your vet if was to give orange peels to your dogs? They may know if it is safe.

Hmm - I've never heard of that. Normally orange peels are bitter...but dogs will eat anything :laughing:

Seems it's okay based on this older thread.
Hope it may help!

My dog will eat raw orange peels. I can't see raw or dehydrated providing much chewing, unless it's a tiny dog. With my boy it's just gulp, gone. He only eats few bits but if he wanted the whole thing I wouldn't let him.
