Default Sweet potato chew toy

Some are convinced that dogs are carnivores, others that dogs are omnivores. Verena Rabow is a vegetarian who feeds her dogs a vegetarian diet and who has written a book on vegetarian diets for dogs. Regardless of which camp you are in, this article links to a recipe for a sweet potato chew toy as an alternative to bones, rawhide chews, and pigs ears:

yep. i have a question: we got ruby a boots and barkly beef knuckle bone from target. then she got diarheas,really bad, no solid pieces. although she will eat garbage sometimes,do you think it might be the bone that caused it? it seemed to have bbq seasoning on it.

If that's the only thing that changed in her diet for the 24 to 36 hours before the diarrhea hit, then yes, I'd suspect it.

That 'bbq seasoning' may have been too spicy for her tummy.

Did pumpkin set it straight in a hurry for you?

I'm going to try the sweet potatoe chews for MacKenzie...I'll use the dehydrator to make them for him. I have a recipe for sweet potato jerky that I want to try so I'll just do his treats and my treats at the same time...

JGLI, very interesting article. I think I'm going to try the sweet potato treat. Sounds easy enough.
rubythepup123, it's hard to say, but my guess is, the bone did it.

My dogs get sick on knucklebones, so they don't get them.

I'm wondering if it doesn't take the dogs about five minutes to chew through this, though. It does look tasty and right now sweet potatoes are all the rage in dog treats. I have a student who dehydrates them into small chips and uses that as treats. The dogs love them.
