Dehydrated dog treats give animals a treat that doesn’t need refrigeration. Manufacturers create these treats by drying protein sources or other materials. Common protein sources for dehydrated dog treats include chicken, turkey, fish, and fish skins. Dehydrated treats made from beef organs are also common. Some manufacturers use ingredients like sweet potatoes or pumpkins to create dehydrated treats. During the dehydration process, moisture is removed from the food. This preserves the treats, meaning they don’t have to be stored in a refrigerator. Dehydrated dog treats have a tough or crunchy texture that dogs like. However, some of these treats may be too hard for older dogs to chew.
