Was watching this pet channel, and seen a guy showing how to make these simple kinds of dog treats.. Was wondering if they would be fuzz safe and\or beneficial..
Ingredients Water Powdered Broth (Chicken, beef, shrimp, whatever kind) -I'd stick with chicken or beef.
Materials Needed Measuring cup or some sort of cup Ice cube tray
Directions Mix powdered broth with water and mix. Pour into ice cube tray. Pop in freezer. Wait a few hours. Simple treat.
Would this be safe for fuzzies? my biggest concern would be all the sodium in some of the powdered broth... What is you watered it down alot? Thanks. *Looking for safe treats since Dexter can't open his jaw all the way.
I wouldn't make them unless you got sodium free broth. Even if it's watered down, it's still unnecessary sodium. My only other concern with that treat would be the mess it could make when it starts melting. Would they be beneficial? Not nutrition wise.
You could use meat baby food as an occasional treat if you're worried about his ability to eat solid foods.

I have always wanted to make "chicken jello": purred cooked (or raw!) chicken breast and plain gelatin (in the packages). You wouldn't really have to chew that ;D
As far as broth, a little is okay, but it does have a lot of salt most of the time. The ice cube treat would be great for dogs, but ferrets tend to like to play with and TRY to stash ice cubes. You might end up with it melting all over the carpet or cage (wherever you feed it, or wherever he stashes it) before he starts to lick it ;D
You can always make your own broth. If you cook the chicken for soup, just use the water from that.
