Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

If you pup eats fresh apples, bananas, carrots, etc. Could you feed them dehydrated or freeze-dried versions that we eat?

I'm looking at a bag of dehydrated organic green apple chips that I bought from Costco, and the ingredients list organic green apples. That's it. Could you give your pup an apple chip? Same for banana chips. If the only ingredient is banana, could you give your pup banana chips? I found freeze-dried veggie snacks...and it only lists those veggies. Nothing else. Could I give those to Ginger?

I would say, yes...or am I just wrong?

Yes you can, but just be sure that there are no apple seeds along with those dehydrated apples as they are toxic. But there is nothing wrong with the occasional apple or banana chip as a treat. If you look at THK Force you can see dehydrated banana slices in there too. Wink

I figured so.

If she already eats apples wrapped in chicken, and bananas wrapped in chicken, etc. and those treats are either baked at low temperatures, basically dehyrating them, she could eat dehydrated banana chips that has no sugar. She already eats carrots, and green beans in her food, so I figured freeze-dried veggie snacks with no salt would be OK too...

Just checking!
Thanks for the cofirmation!
