Charcuterie boards are a super popular way to create a fancy cheese and sausage tray for guests to snack on but have you heard of a barkuterie or a charcaterie? That’s right, you can create one of these trendy hor’s d‘oeuvre platters or snack trays just for your pet. 

Whether it’s for the holiday season, a birthday, gotcha day or other celebration, or no occasion at all, Vital Essentials has made it easier than ever to share the fun of charcuterie with your pet. Check out this PAWesome video featuring Loki and Lambeau and follow our steps below to make your own barkuterie or charcaterie board.

How to Make a Charcuterie Board for Dogs and Cats: 

  1. Find a board, platter or tray to display your charcuterie.
  2. Choose your favorite Vital Essentials or Vital Cat treats and VE RAW BAR snacks which work for both dogs and cats. Pick out a few of your dog or cat’s favorite toys for visual appeal.
  3. Arrange the toys, treats and snacks on the board. Get creative and display them in mounds, piles, or in various glasses or bowls. Pro tip: Sprinkle some Vital Essentials Toppers over your charcuterie or add water to make a gravy and pour over the snacks as a finishing touch.
  4. Allow your pet to dig in! Your dog or cat will feel pampered with a customizable tray made with their favorite raw treats. 

Get creative and make sure to post photos of your charcaterie or barkuterie on social and tag @vitalessentialsraw.
