Pet Recipes

In today's society, there are so many treat options available to pets. Some may cause them to gain weight, some help with keeping their teeth clean, there are also treats to help make giving medications easier and then there are those pets who have tried so many different treats, but still do not like any of them. Pets can be picky, just like children! Here are a few homemade recipes that might be worth trying. We hope they enjoy!!

Healthy Dog Food Treats

Using canned food:

  1. Open the can and shake the loaf of food out of the can.
  2. Cut the loaf into 1/4" thick slices, and then cut the slices into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Bake the treats in a microwave oven on high for approximately 2½ to 3 minutes.
  4. Store baked treats in the refrigerator and discard leftovers after 5-7 days.
  5. Homemade treats should not exceed 10% of your pet's total daily intake because heat alters the nutritional characteristics of the food.
  6. Do not freeze homemade treats.

For a conventional oven, follow the instructions above and place the bite-sized pieces on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until crispy.

Using Dry Food:

  1. In a blender, add 2 cups of dry food and grind into a powder.
  2. Pour powder into a mixing bowl and gradually add about 1 to 1¼ cups of water, stirring until it forms a dough consistency.
  3. Shape into individual "treats" or "cookies" and flatten the dough using the back of a spoon (the cookies will not flatten like standard "people cookies" do.)
  4. Place treats on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until crispy.
  5. Store baked treats in the refrigerator and discard leftovers after 5-7 days.
  6. Homemade treats should not exceed 10% of your pet's total daily intake because heat alters the nutritional characteristics of the food.
  7. Do not freeze homemade treats.

Cookie cutters make treats fun to make and serve.

Treats for giving medications

- Chicken or Beef Liver Pockets

    Cook a pound of beef or chicken liver in a little vegetable oil, including the liquid. Do not season. Allow the liver to cool, then cut it into pieces. Process in a food processor until it has the consistency of paste. Wrap the pill inside a small amount of paste so the animal swallows it whole without chewing. Keep in the refrigerator and then freeze any leftovers and thaw as needed.

-Peanut Butter Pockets

   Form a paste from 1 tablespoon of milk, 1 tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter, and 2 tablespoons of flour. Store in refrigerator or freezer and use as needed.

- Liverwurst Pockets

   Mix together in a bowl, 1 tube liverwurst, 1 package of cream cheese, 3 handfuls of shredded wheat. Place in refrigerator overnight. Can be stored in refrigerator for up to two weeks.
