I have an extremely picky yorkie who won’t eat regular wet nor dry dog food. I make homemade dehydrated jerky for my picky yorkie with 80% lean beef, mix of frozen vegetables (carrots, peas, beans), pro-biotic powder, Nupro Nutri-pet dog vitamins and a little bit of BBQ sauce for flavoring. This is pretty much all she’ll eat. Is that bad that she only eats this? Am I missing any nutrients in this for her?

    Hello Cathy.

    Thanks for your comment. However, I am afraid we are not qualified to answer your question. Please refer to a licensed pet nutritionist or your veterinarian.

    I can say that the pet jerky treats we sell have nothing added. They contain only the meat of the species stated. They are meant as a treat, not as a meal source.

    Best regards,

I gave this ladie’s dogs a few tiny pieces of people jerky not spicy, not flavored. About the size of a finger nail each. When she found out it was people jerky she pretty much freaked out. What’s better for dogs? Jerky for dogs or jerky for humans? I would think the human jerky is better quality?

    Hello Jason.
    Any jerky that has salt, onion, garlic, and all those great human loved spices, etc., is not good for dogs. For best health practices the best jerky treats for dogs is just plain meat. Dogs don’t care about flavorings but they know the difference between meat, chicken and fish by scent. Here is a link to the Dog Jerky Treats we sell a Mountain America Jerky.
    Have a great day!

Thank you for letting me know about beef jerky I have a chihuahua mixed with Shih Tzu and she is hard to find treats for she is hard to find food for I hope I find something that she will eat and love other than people food.

Great article, I give my little dog a jerky treat every night before bed. Just a little piece and it is low sodium, people beef jerky. I didn’t know how important it is for dogs to have a no or low sodium diet, thank you.
