A Delicious Dog Bone Recipe

Homemade Dog Treats for Your Pet

A dog bone is a good treat for your canine. You can also use a dog cookie recipe and make it look like a bone. A healthy dog biscuit recipe is one of the basics in learning how to make dog food.

A delicious dog biscuit recipe: a healthy, nutritious and tasty homemade dog treat. Your dog will love this dog biscuit recipe.

Our dogs love this dog bone recipe. Harley, our Ridgeback, has a sensitive stomach but this dog cookie recipe is absolutely no problem for her. In fact, it seems to really help keep her coat shiny and healthy.

Our other dog, Vega (an American bulldog/boxer cross), loves all food, has no allergies but at the age of seven she is somewhat arthritic - I believe that the flax seed and olive oil seem to help her joints (or maybe she just loves the treats so much she can run around with pain!).

When I'm making a batch, I usually have two drooling dogs sitting at each end of the kitchen waiting anxiously for their treat!

We often double up the batch (remember we've got two dogs) and the recipe works well in larger batches. Use this dog biscuit recipe to make a special treat for your dog.

1/2 cup salt free chicken or beef stock.

Dog Biscuit Recipe: Directions

Combine sweet potato, carrots, pumpkin, egg yolk and olive oil. Blend until smooth. Fold in all dry ingredients. Add chicken or beef stock as needed until the mixture is the consistency of a firm workable dough. Roll out on heavily floured surface and cut into bars or use a dog bone shaped cookie cutter. Brush tops with egg white for a glossy finish. Bake at 300 degrees for 45 minutes or until medium golden brown not dark brown. Centers of bones harden as they cool. Bone appetit Fido!!!

Product Recommendation:

One of the main reasons for making your own dog treats and dog food is to control the ingredients. Many commercially prepared foods and treats include chemicals and preservatives that are not good for your dog's health.

By making your own dog treats you can monitor the ingredients. For older dogs, you can also provide your dog with a good herbal herbal supplement: PetAlive Muscle and Joint Support Formula. This supplement treats symptoms, relieves pain and reduces stiffness of arthritis, rheumatism and degenerative joint disease in pets.

Muscle and Joint Support promotes muscle, joint and bone health; as well as supports mobility and flexibility. This product contains Glucosamine, Lecithin, Devil’s Claw and other natural ingredients.
