Homemade Dog Biscuits (& 3 Recipes)

18th October, 2015
With harmful additives in some common dog treat brands, it’s no wonder that pet parents are turning to healthy, homemade alternatives instead. On top of that, the amount of customizable recipes you can find online is almost endless, making the option of homemade treats an easy choice within your reach. Below we’ll share three of our favorite, freshly baked dog biscuits sure to make your pup’s tongues (and tails!) wag. Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats When it comes to fall, nothing beats that pumpkin flavor and your dog loves it, too. That’s why these peanut butter and pumpkin dog treats are a must. Have you ever met a dog who doesn’t love peanut butter? We haven’t either. Here’s how to make these drool-worthy treats. Ingredients: 2 Tbsp of peanut butter ½ tsp of salt ½ tsp of ground cinnamon 2 ½ c whole wheat flour 2 eggs ½ cup canned pumpkin Directions: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix the flour, eggs, peanut butter, pumpkin, and seasonings in a bowl. You may need to add water if the dough is not sticking together. However, you still want a dry and stiff consistency. Bake until hard, approximately 40 minutes. Cool completely before serving. Flea Terminator Dog Treats This treat doubles as a natural flea repellent thanks to the brewer’s yeast, according to the makes of this recipe. Your dog will love the taste and you’ll love having a pest-free pup. Here’s how to bake them: Ingredients: 2 c whole wheat flour 2 egg yolks 2 Tbsp garlic powder 1 c cornmeal 3 cubes beef bouillon 1 ½ c boiling water 2/3 c brewer’s yeast Directions: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Dissolve bouillon cubes in your boiling water; set aside. Grease cookie sheets. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, brewer’s yeast, and garlic powder. Next, add the yolks and slowly add the boiling water/bouillon mix as well. Roll the dough on a floured surface so it’s about ¼ inch thick. Using your favorite cookie cutter, cut out the shape of your biscuits and place on a cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake for 20 minutes and then shut off the oven with the treats inside. Leave the cookies in the oven for three hours or overnight to harden. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Apple & Banana Allergy Free Dog Treats If your pup suffers from allergies, they’ll need a treat free of trigger foods. This apple and banana combo does just the trick.

Melissa Block Demant
I used this product for my Boston last summer. Worked awesome. In 2 days, I've seen a improvement. Within 4 days, the infection was gone. My pit bull started having an issue with his right ear. It was bad. It was so infected. I used EcoEars twice a day and again it worked like magic!! 4 days have passed and you can't even tell he had an ear issue!! I will never use anything else. This stuff is fantastic!! Thank you Vet Organics for such an amazing product!!*
Tina Neupauer
EcoEars is a great product! I used it in my Lacey's ears and we haven't had any problems since.
Bonnie Schweitzer
