Dog Treats: Sweet Potato Fries
As I was perusing the dog treat aisle at Petsmart, the hubby was looking for some sweet potato jerky for the girls. I stumbled upon some natural sweet potato fries, which the excellent part is that it's only made with sweet potatoes and were dehydrated. I decided to purchase these just to see whether Bree and Hazel would like these as part of their treats. They are definitely spoiled girls! lol. Sweet potatoes are great for dogs because it provides about 15mg of beta carotene (Vitamin A), loaded with Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, potassium and iron, promote a healthy digestive tract, and cholesterol-free. Bree and Hazel really did take a liking to these sweet potato fries, so I decided to try dehydrating some sweet potatoes, which took about 12 hours to dehydrate overnight. For the dog lovers and owners, you guys should definitely try dehydrating some! Plus it saves you some money rather than buying them at the pet stores. I bought an Oster dehydrating machine at Walmart for about $40, which I intend to dehydrate some other fruits, meat, etc. The great part with these all natural sweet potato fries is that you can also eat it too!
