I got some nice recipes for dog treats but a lot of them include unsalted chicken or veg stock. I have looked everywhere but even the organic brands have salt in the stock. Does anybody have any ideas apart from making my own stock?

I don't really think it matters that much actually -- and supermarkets do tend to sell low sodium brands, which might work if this is a concern? Maybe healthfood stores would have unsalted or low salt? In the US it is pretty easy to get low salt/no salt.

Hi Sabby
As a filler I buy the salt free rice cakes from H & B ,and for treats either the little liver/artic fish treats from Barker & Barker or the all fish super star training treats from fish4dogs.

Best Wishes

Thanks Brian & Karlin

I do give those Rice cakes as a treat.
As I am at home for the unforeseeable future I started making my own dog treats and biscuits. I don’t buy any dog treats or biscuits now. I really enjoy it and the dogs love it too and I know what goes into their food. I actually would love to turn it into a little business.

I make dog rusks - originally for my own two, but I sell quite a lot of them when I have a stall at craft fairs and markets selling my homemade mustard. BUT if you want to sell as a proper business, or through retail outlets such as pet shops, you have to pay for a full analysis - which costs £500!! But you could sell plenty just by word of mouth, at training club etc - mine pay for Oliver's obedience show entries!

Kate, and Oliver and Aled who queue up at the kitchen door dead on 10 pm for their bedtime rusk!

So if I had 10 different variety of dog treats I would have to pay £500 for each different treat =£5000?:eek: God nothing is ever easy.:( If it be £500 for just one of analysis for all the treats I wouldn’t mind that much.

I went shopping yesterday for a lady who has Celiac Disease came across all manner of goodies in Morrisons called the FREE FROM Range. Low sodium stock cubes being one of them.

When I'm making soup that calls for broth I will often just use water. You could probably substitute water as long as there were other ingredients to add flavour.
