Sweet potatoes are one of the best dietary sources of Vitamin A for our canine companions. Vitamin A promotes healthy skin, fur, eyes, nerves as well as muscles in dogs. It also helps prevent disease and infections. Sweet potatoes are also rich in fiber, Vitamins C and B6, iron, potassium and calcium. Some of the people that I know add a small amount of sweet potatoes into their puppies’ diet. I prefer to use them as a treat.
I usually make them in batches. I like to slice up one sweet potatoe and bake it at 200°F for 2 hours. You are not baking them to make them super crunchy, we just want to dehydrate them. I like to keep the dehydrated sweet potato chips in a ziplock bag and use them as treats throughout the week.
Definitely give this recipe a try, your little babies will appreciate them. I know as a parent that like to know exactly what are in the treats I feed Mylo compared to what I buy in the store.
