We all love to pamper our pets and sometimes the cost of buying Healthy Dog Treats at the store is too high. Often times we settle for a low quality dog treat because it is cheaper. However, you do not have to choose between what is healthy for your pet and what is good for your wallet with this collection of Healthy Do Treat Recipes.
I love my dogs and have served them store bought dog treats but I prefer to serve Healthy Dog Treats that I make myself. This ensures that I am aware of every ingredient in the treats and I can customize them to the flavors my dogs love. We have had a very busy month and my dogs were feeling a little left out so this afternoon I whipped up this batch of delicious Health Dog Treats Apple Muffins.
Our sweet doggy loves his dog biscuits. He will do all sorts of tricks to get a treat. He can shake hands (paws), give high fives, sit, jump, lay down, fetch, and catch. With all these awesome tricks and subsequent rewards I sometimes worry about the nutritional value of his treats. Of course, we also have two little boys who love to give the dog treats all the time too.
Pumpkin helps with digestion in dogs. It is am excellent source of fiber and can also settle upset stomachs. It is good for treating both constipation and diarrhea. Pumpkin is also a good meal replacement if your dog needs to lose a few pounds. It will leave them feeling full. Dogs can safely eat pumpkin flesh and pumpkin seeds both cooked and raw. We have made the healthy dog treat recipe below with pumpkin and peanut butter for our pooch and he loves them!
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons dry milk
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon of peanut butter.
You will combine all items above and make them into biscuit shapes. We also do circles. You will bake them for 20 minutes at 350 degrees and then you will add the wholes with a fork if you desire. Then we flip them over to cook them fully. I leave them out on wax paper until they are cool. This will make about 50 biscuit shapes depending on your cookie cutter.

We foster for a local Rescue in Michigan, Providing For Paws, and we recently took in a new puppy. He has had a rough start at life and after recovering from surgery he developed Pancreatitis. In order to make sure he stays healthy he must be on a low fat diet. Although many treats are not really high in fat they are not necessarily low in fat. In order for him not to feel left out at treat time, I have made him his own special Low Fat Dog Treats. Continue reading
