How to Make Homemade Dog Treats with Liver

Coated carrot fries on air fryer tray

Put liver-coated carrots on an air fryer tray. Make sure they are not touching.

Put the tray in the air fryer and cook at 190 degrees for 15 minutes. They will not be dried out like dehydrated treats at this stage. They will be more of a fry-type consistency.

If you want them to be dryer and more dehydrated, you can cook them for a longer time at a lower temperature.

How to store homemade liver dog treats

Keep homemade liver dog treats stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. These treats will only keep a few days. So if you only have one dog or a small dog, I would recommend making these carrot liver fries in a smaller batch.

How to make small batches

It is pretty easy to adjust the size of the batch since you don’t need exact measurements of the ingredients. To make a small batch only cut up as many carrot fries that you feel your dog will eat over a few days and coat those carrot fries in the lover powder and fry them in your air fryer.

Are liver treats safe for dogs?

Yes, liver treats are safe for dogs to eat. They are nutritious snacks for dogs to eat.

How often can I give my dog liver treats?

Dogs can eat one serving of liver a day. You do not want to feed your dog more than that a day because it will get an overdose of vitamin A. Too much vitamin A can be toxic for dogs.

Can dogs get sick from too many liver treats?

Yes, dogs can get sick from too many liver treats. An overconsumption of liver can lead to vitamin A toxicity in dogs.
