Scrumptious liver dog treats by Donna K. — On Donna's chicken jerky page, we asked the same question: Are you fed up of mass-market pet jerky and treats that contain ingredients you can't even pronounce? If so, these easy-to-make treats made from beef liver will please your pet.

Make the jerky treats right in your kitchen ... it's not imported, it's not full of God-knows-what, it's has no preservatives, no added color, or fillers. It has ONE (as in '1') ingredient. You gotta love '1'.

No Slicing!

As a change from chicken for my dogs, I use beef liver. The nice thing about beef liver is you don't have to slice it!

Donna jokes: "For me, that's a good thing as sharp knives and I don't go well together!"

Spray the dehydrator trays first with non-stick spray and lay the liver on them.

how many nicknames we bestow upon them,
our pets would be the most loved."

Do the "Snap Test" to check for "Doneness"

Do the "Snap Test"
to check for "Doneness"

As seen on Donna's chicken pet jerky page, the same test applies for "doneness."

Simply bend the liver quickly and if it breaks, it's done. If it only bends, then there's still too much moisture in it. Put it back on the dehydrator and check every 12 to 18 hours.

Take note that on rare occasions meat can go bad. One time Donna forgot to turn on the dehydrator ... and the other time she tested out dehydrating her treats in her shed in the winter time ... it didn't work.

Do the "sniff test." If it smells bad, throw it away. Our pets are too precious to give 'em bad meat.

Stiff Joints eased,
get Fresh Breath too!

For Donna's senior dog, Kylee (a fabulous 12-year-young German Shepherd shown at the top of this page), Donna opens a capsule of glucosamine chondroitin and sprinkles it on the raw meat. When the liver dries, it's a joint supplement and a treat — all in one!

Donna says "If your dog has bad breath, you can sprinkle the raw meat with a bit of mint leaves. Use your imagination ... just try to keep it natural for your pet's health!"
