Halloween Festivities: Ensuring Safe Celebrations with Your PetsOctober 25, 2023
At TLC Pet Hospital, we believe that our furry friends deserve to be pampered and treated just as much as we do. As the month of treats unfolds, it’s only fair that our pets get their share of the fun. We are here to guide you on how to make nutritious, homemade dog treats that your pups will surely love.
Frozen Peanut Butter Delight
The perfect post-playtime snack, this frozen treat will help your pet cool down after an energetic session of fetch or a leisurely walk.
- 32 ounces vanilla yogurt
- 1 cup peanut butter
- Melt the peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl.
- Mix the melted peanut butter with the yogurt until well combined.
- Pour the mixture into cupcake papers or an ice cube tray for smaller portions.
- Freeze until solid.
These delicious, creamy treats are a great way to reward your pet. Add pumpkin as a fall variation.
Customizable Canine Biscuits
Our next recipe is for basic dog biscuits that can be easily customized to suit your pet’s preferences or dietary needs.
- 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour (use regular flour or oats if your dog is sensitive to wheat)
- 1 tsp. salt (or less, depending on your dog’s dietary requirements)
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. Beef or chicken Bouillon granules (you can substitute this with beef or chicken broth/stock)
- ½ cup hot water
- Peanut Butter
- Bacon or chicken broth
- Liver powder
- Wheat germ
- Shredded cheese
- Bacon bits
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Dissolve the bouillon in hot water.
- Add the remaining ingredients and any optional add-ins your dog might enjoy.
- Knead the dough until it forms a ball (approximately 3 minutes).
- Roll the dough until it’s about ½ inch thick.
- Cut into slices or use a bone-shaped cookie cutter for a fun twist.
- Place the pieces on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
These homemade treats provide a healthier alternative to store-bought options, allowing you to control what goes into your pet’s diet.
At TLC Pet Hospital, we encourage all pet parents to try these recipes. After all, a treat-filled month should include our four-legged family members too. Enjoy making these treats and watching your pups relish them! Remember, our veterinarians are always here to discuss your pet’s nutritional needs.
