DIY - Yummy Dehydrated Liver Treats for Fur-Babies
We all love to feed our fur-babies healthy treats.   I remember the day I reached for a package of dehydrated liver treats in the store.  I looked at the price and was shocked!  $12.50 for an 85g bag.  My two golden retrievers would eat that up in less than a week!  I knew the price of liver was around $3-4 dollars for a full package of it in the grocery store and it would definitely yield out 3-4 times what this little package was in the pet store.  Plus I'd know exactly what was in it - a single ingredient without any preservatives.  If you are like me and want healthy treats on a budget for your pets then this little DIY for yummy dehydrated liver treats for your fur-babies is for you!
