DOG AND CAT TREAT RECIPES

Ice Cream for your Pet

Ingredients

1 banana.
1 cup peanut butter.
2 cups natural yogurt.
2 tablespoons honey.

  1. Mash the banana and stir into the yogurt.
  2. Warm the peanut butter either on your stove or in the microwave until it is easy to stir.
  3. Add the banana/yogurt mixture and the honey.
  4. Mix everything until well combined.
  5. Pour into non-stick trays or containers and freeze. We like to use ice cube trays, or freeze in small dog sized containers!
  6. Freeze overnight or until frozen

It is nicer if you take it out of the freezer to let it soften before giving it to your dog. It depends how big your frozen portions are, but this could take somewhere between ten minutes and half an hour.


Homemade Canned Dog/Cat Food Treat Recipe

Using canned dog 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.

* Bake the treats in a microwave oven on high for approximately 2½ to 3 minutes. OR

* 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

  1. Store baked treats in the refrigerator and discard leftovers after 5-7 days.
  2. Homemade treats should not exceed 10% of your pet’s total daily intake because heat alters the nutritional characteristics of the food.
  3. Do not freeze homemade treats.

Homemade Dry Dog/Cat Food Treat Recipe

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.
