I liked this idea. Beets are wonderful for people and dogs.
I've also boiled and chopped up beats and frozen them as a puppy Popsicle too. My dog really enjoys it and keeps him busy while I take a shower. Since beet juice can be messy be thoughtful where you let them eat frozen ones but this dehydrated idea solves that problem!
I've found in my experience that my dogs like dehydrated beets the best. I just add a little water prior to feeding and it plumps right back up. They see it as a treat. I get my dehydrated beets from www.olewousa.com
Chef's Comments ~ That's a good idea to add water to make the treats plump again. You can also purchase the dried beets and other dried veggies at Amazon.com.
I am beginning the journey of cooking my own dog food. Beets? They seem to arise some controversy and I don't know whether or not to use them in the dogs' meal? Are there any side effects like gas? Will it turn their poop red? Is it ok for all breeds?
Chef's Comments ~ Here at Dog Treat Kitchen.com we focus on making healthy dog treats, not your dog's everyday meals. These beet chips, served as an occasional treat, should not cause any side effects.
Your best bet is to talk to your Vet. Or, contact a Holistic Vet and discuss your concerns with her. She will also be a great source of information regarding making your own homemade dog food.
