Sweet Potato Chews
- 1 raw sweet potato or 1 yam
- Preheat oven to 250°F.
- Wash the sweet potato or yam (dark orange type).
- Cut the sweet potato down the middle lengthwise.
- Then cut long, lengthwise slices about 1/3 of an
inch wide and place them (not touching) on a cookie sheet in a single layer.
- Bake in the oven at 250 F for about 3 hours - this leaves the treats chewy.
- If your dog prefers a crunchy
texture, bake them for 20 to 30 minutes longer.
Natural Pail Relief for Pets
Over the years I have had the privilege of having many pets in my life. If you are like me, you would do anything to help your pets find relief from pain. Pharmaceutical drugs may not be your pets only path to pain
relief. Below you will find a list of homeopathic remedies to help you
manage your pets pain at home. These remedies can be safely used without
running the risk of unwanted side effects, allergic reactions, and
undesirable interactions with other medications.
Bone Broth to Nourish Sick, Finicky and Older Pets

can also use beef thigh bones (also called "soup bones"). As you
continue to simmer the bones, they release all of their minerals and marrow
into the water.
