Ideas For Making Your Own Pet Treats
The holiday seasons brings to mind thoughts of baking sweet treats like cookies and candies. They are fun to eat and even more fun to share with others. Our furry family members can also join the fun and enjoy a freshly-baked treat on occasion. It’s fun to bake for our pets with as much love as we do for our families. Here are three of our favorites:
Cesar Milan’s Basic Dog Biscuits: You may have seen Milan rehabilitating dogs on the television show Dog Whisperer. He lists several treats on his website, but our go-to is his basic dog biscuits. They probably take less time to make than your favorite cookies and you include only oatmeal if your dog is sensitive to flour.
Alton Brown’s Stinkin’ Dog Treats: This Food Network star has perfected nearly every recipe on the planet. We were tickled when we found he also created a treat for Fido. Beware, for they are slightly stinky just as their name implies. Sardines and fish sauce lend an interesting flavor and aroma your dog will love even if you wrinkle your nose. Plus, they add nutrition.
Joy the Baker’s Chewy Cat Treats for Cats: Cats can enjoy homemade treats too! This post is Joy’s edible ode to her cat upon turning two-years old. It’s so moving it may bring happy tears to any cat owner’s eyes. This recipe is vet approved too, since it’s recommended by a Veteranarian Clinic in Virginia.
As always, consult with your veteranarian with questions about your dog’s specific nutritional needs. He or she will be able to advise you what homemade treats are best for your pet.
