Meat Jerky Treats Recipe for Dogs and Cats

 Did you know that a popular brand of Jerky Chicken Treats have been killing dogs? Many of us well intentioned pet parents believe we are offering what appears to be a healthy treat, when in fact, the manufacturers have screwed up (again) so badly that they’ve been killing and harming dogs with their negligence. Don’t you hate that?

 They used to be Einstein’s favorite treat, and guess what?  One of the issues with them was that they were somehow contaminated, and it’s not just the chicken jerky either.  One side effect was kidney failure, sound familiar?  Whose favorite canine pal almost died of kidney failure only a year and a half ago?  Carp!
I cook for Einstein now and so when I saw this simple recipe in Penelope Smith’s ezine, I’ve decided to share it with you and add a few of my own culinary ideas to it.
Instead of buying commercial dog treats, why not make your own?  SO simple to do, and so much healthier too.
Chicken (or any meat) Jerky Treats for dogs and cats
Cut boneless chicken breasts into thin slices (or turkey, lamb, beef, bison, etc, however I don’t recommend using raw pork)
Optional: Sprinkle on a tiny pinch of spices (garlic is Einstein’s favorite).
Place meat slices on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 180 degrees until meat strips are dry (at least three hours or more).
The jerky strips can be stored in airtight containers or plastic bags, or can be frozen. Bone Appetit, Ya’ll!

I will pass on the recipe to some friends with dogs. Just to be sure, I assume 180 degrees is calculated in Farenheit, thus approximately 82 degrees Celsius?

My dogs loved the chicken jerky I used to buy them at the store. I almost had a heart attack when I found out they were killing dogs. I was so horrified that at 55 years of age I finally touched raw chicken for the first time in my life so I could make them their favorite treat without out having to worry if I was feeding them something that could kill them. My husband tells all his friends about how I could finally bring myself to touch raw chicken so I could cook it but its for the dogs and not him 🙂 I’m looking for a recipe for beef jerky for them now. I figure if I can finally touch raw chicken then beef shouldn’t be too bad.

Garlic and onions can be toxic to dogs. Please don’t use these in any dog treats.
