Treats For Raw Fed Dogs: What Are They?
Raw dog treats are made from the meat of dogs or other animals which have not been subjected to any kind of processing such as salting, curing, smoking, pickling or anything else. These foods do not contain any preservatives or additives. They are usually high in protein and low in fat but they may vary greatly depending on what type of animal it is that was used for their creation.
The most common types of raw dog treats are those made from chicken, duck, turkey or other meats. Some people prefer to make their own raw dog treats using ground beef, pork, fish or even vegetables.
However there are many different kinds of raw dog treats available and they all have advantages and disadvantages. There is no one size fits all solution for your family’s diet so it makes sense to choose the best option that works for you!
Raw Dog Chew Recipes
There are several different ways to prepare raw dog treats. One way is to simply mix them with water and eat them straight away.
Another method involves soaking the raw ingredients in hot water before eating. A third method uses baking soda and salt to create a paste which can then be eaten like a dip or spread on bread or crackers. You will need some basic kitchen tools to make these recipes at home if you don’t already have them around the house. These include a large cutting board, sharp knife, large cooking pot and a blender (or similar implement) to make the final product as smooth as possible.
It’s important to make sure your dog doesn’t overeat as raw dog food is not typically as “burned up” as kibble which has been cooked at an incredibly high temperature. Do not let your dog eat the entire batch in one sitting!
