RECIPE: Dehydrated Vegetarian Dog Treats

Pin It


Today we have a special guest recipe from Excalibur Food Dehydrators – America’s top dehydrator manufactured since 1973. I know that many of you know that we’ve often written about our dehydrator (and you’ll find our dehydrator recipes in our The Healthy Hound Cookbook and My Dog Says I’m a Great Cook!)

You can substitute just about any fruit or vegetable in this vegetarian dog treat recipe to add variety. This recipe uses an egg as a binding agent but if you want to make these treats vegan– just mix the dough longer and omit the egg.

    What’s so healthy about sugar and salty bouillon cubes? No thanks!
