I am a butcher and make biltong so I don' t see why I shouldn' t give my dogs a treat of this every day when I get home. They go crazy for it. I do not give them fat. They are heavy-built labrador types and each gets a stick about 1.5cm diameter and 15cm long. My wife nags at me constantly because she says I am making them fat and the biltong-making ingredients might be harmful. Please settle this argument.

Dear Sam

If your dogs are not overweight and exercise a lot I would give them biltong with fat on.

Daily is probably a bit much. Yes, if they are getting fatter and fatter, you' re wife is right I guess...?
Ask your Vet what should be the ideal build for your dogs specifically.
