sweet potato chews
Wow! These sound like a great alternative to rawhides! I found the following by doing a net search and it sort of describes the process. I am thinking about a food hydrator or my neighbours' cold smoker, which we were just talking about using yesterday! I'm gonna try the smoker and will let you know the results. Trial and error, but we'll figure it out!
Here's the blurb:
Big Boyz are made of very thick slabs of dehydrated sweet potato. Designed for larger breeds, but smaller dogs will enjoy them as well and they will last them a good long time. Each slice is perforated in order to assist in the dehydration of such a large piece. The surface is hard so as to provide dental benefits, yet the chews have a texture similar to rawhide. Each chew has the nutritional value of half of a large sweet potato. Will not stain carpets.
Lint! It's a lifestyle!!
