Homemade Doggy Treats

Do you enjoy cooking? If you do, you might enjoy making some treats for your canine buddy. While there are numerous options for doggy treats in stores, there are definite advantages to making your own. You can control the ingredients, so you know exactly what your canine buddy is eating. Also, you can customize your recipes to suit your furry pal’s taste. If bacon is Fido’s most favorite snack ever, then homemade bacon treats will seem like a little slice of heaven for your pooch. Here are a few recipes for homemade doggy treats from your North West London vet.

Doggy Bones

These treats are based on wheat germ, egg, and bacon fat. You can add all sorts of options and extras to these main ingredients to customize these snacks for your favorite pooch. Bacon, spinach, cheese, and peanut butter are a few options. Once you have your treats mixed, you can shape them into rolls or even little bones.

Liver Yums

Use whole-wheat flour, eggs, and beef liver to make a special snack for your canine friend. Run the beef liver through a food processor to smooth out the texture, then mix and pour into a brownie pan and bake at 350.

Yogurt And Peanut Butter ‘Pupsicles’

These cold treats make great snacks for Fido on hot days. Simply mix vanilla yogurt and peanut butter. Then, spoon the mixture into cupcake papers, and pop it into the freezer. Voila!

Basic Biscuits

Wheat flour, salt, an egg, and beef or chicken bouillon form the basis for a simple doggy biscuit. Add hot water, and mix everything together until the bouillon cubes dissolve. You can add all sorts of extras, such as bacon bits, liver powder, egg, and cheese, to suit your dog’s taste.

Precautions

When cooking for your canine pal, make sure to avoid using chocolate, grapes, garlic, onion, avocado, chives, or raisins, as these things are all very toxic to dogs. Feel free to experiment with different options, but always go slowly when introducing a new food to your furry friend. Feed just one treat or snack, and watch for any signs of digestive upset. Last but not least, be sure to store your dog’s treats properly in an airtight container. Freezing is a good way to preserve your canine buddy’s snacks.
