How to use a dehydrator to prepare pet treats and patties from sliced and ground meat, as well as how to dry poultry hearts and various types of liver.  This is from Dr. Jean Dodds' blog.

PDF of the recipe book that comes with the Nesco pet treat maker.  There are recipes for dog, cat, bird, horse and rabbit and gerbil treats that can be made with it.  The recipes were checked by a vet before being included in the booklet.  You can even make your own catnip with it!  Shocked

Hey, this is great! I have a dehydrator that I seldom use, and I think I could make freeze-dried meat for cat treats a lot cheaper than I can buy it. Thanks for posting.

They're not the same texture as freeze dried.  They're...jerkier. Smiley

I still think I might try it; maybe they would like it. I meant to say, "something like" the freeze-dried in my post above. If you dry it long enough, will it get crunchier? or just too hard?
