puppy pork treats
Sweet Harris’ canine cardiologist recently limited his salt intake because of his heart problems. The little dude has mitral valve prolapse so it’s sayonara to the ham jerky.
And the chicken salad.
And the filet mignon.
And the rotisserie chicken.
He’s pretty spoiled (imagine that) so he wasn’t interested when I offered him the dry, boring low-sodium dog treats meant for senior dogs. I felt badly but didn’t really see another option.
Thank goodness for my mom.
She couldn’t stand the idea of Harris living without good treats so she made him some out of pork tenderloin, which was perfect because it is a lean cut of meat.
Even if your dog doesn’t have heart problems, I’m sure he or she wouldn’t mind these pork treats!
To make them, slice a pork tenderloin as thinly as possible. Lay the slices on a cookie cooling rack that’s been set on a cookie sheet. Bake at 160 degrees F for two hours, then flip each slice of meat and bake for another hour.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Harris could hardly contain himself when Whit offered him the first bite!
Here he is begging with Emmy Lou and my parents’ pups.
