Most commercially available pet treats are not
nutritionally balanced for your pet and can lead to
digestive problems, weight gain, heart problems from
high salt content, etc. The following home made treats
will allow your pet to stay on its regular diet while
making them feel “special” and spoiled!
CANNED PET FOOD:
Cut into bite-sized pieces and bake in your microwave
for approximately 2 ˝-3 minutes. This will change the
texture but not damage the nutrients, and is an
excellent treat for your pet, while still feeding the
ALTERNATIVE MICROWAVE RECIPE:
Sliced canned pet food into 1/4-1/2” thick pieces. Place
3 “cookies/patties” on plate. Bake on high 3 minutes on
the first side; turn over and bake for 1 minute on
“high” on the other side.
DRY PET FOOD:
Grind the kibbles into flour using a blender and then
mix with enough water to form dough. Shape into
“cookies” and bake them on a cookie sheet in the oven
for approximately ˝ hour at 350 degrees, until crispy.
