Thanks so much for this! I rescued my little Malshi 8 months ago and she had terrible teeth and refused to eat dog food. I mean went days without eating (I think she has only been fed people food) so at first I just have her canned chicken and started doing some research. Now I make her food made from ground turkey, organic veggies, etc. it seems like every place you turn they have a different recommendations on the ratios of meat to fat to carbs etc and not sure who's advice to follow. I'd be interested to know what's in McKenzie's Meatloaf if you are able to share and did they recommend getting rid of carbs period or just for the cancer diet?
I too have an Excalibur dehydrator (I use the heck out of that thing esp with stuff from my organic, heirloom vegetable and herb gardens) and just started using it make beef jerky treats for my dog and wondering what other meats or items can I dehydrate for meals/treats. This article will def get me started. I didn't see pork mentioned here. Is that something we should be avoiding pork? I feel like even though I have done a lot of research over the last 8 months that there's so much mixed information that I feel like I will never know it all.

Dehydrated Dog Treats - Love My Puppy Dog
The main reason I decided to buy a dehydrator to make my dogs’ treats was cost. Already dehydrated liver is very expensive. Why spend $4.00 for 4 ounces if I can buy grass-fed liver for $2.40/pound? I will dehydrate pretty much anything for my dogs. The process is really not unlike carving a Thanksgiving turkey more frequently.My dehydrator cranks out plenty of people treats. Now let’s dry some homemade dog treats. By the way, if you are a Paleo Man, you will enjoy my dog bark recipe almost as much as your dog.Dog Chicken Jerky Treats (Recipe) Make your own Dog Chicken Jerky Treats at home in your oven or food dehydrator. Simple, Safer, Tastier & Cheaper than the "Made in China" ones that stores sell. (The FDA has a warning out now about "all" Made in China Chicken Jerky Dog Treats)When the meat is browned and cooked through, drain off liquid and pat meat dry with paper towels.
Add cooked ground beef to pot with sweet potato and green beans.
Add 1½ cups of the retained cooking water and mash with a potato masher.
Divide mush into two or three parts and run through a blender until smooth.
Spread thinly on dehydrator trays covered with non-stick sheets and dry at 145° F for approximately six hours. After four or five hours, flip dog bark over and dry without the non-stick sheets.
Dog Bark is not brittle when dry, so it does not present a choking hazard for dogs. It should feel completely dry and will break into pieces easily.
Yield: This homemade dog treat recipe yielded four cups weighing seven ounces. A good serving size that a dog will scarf up in seconds is ½ cup.
