The Perks of Feeding Your Pets Homemade Treats

May 23, 2022 | General

This month we are focusing on your dog’s gut health. Here is a great recipe for you to try that will benefit your dogs tummy! Preparing homemade meals for your pets has plenty of benefits.

  • You have TOTAL control over what goes into your pet’s food. You can adjust
    the ingredient list, making sure that there are no additives or preservatives going
    into your pet’s body. Plus, your pet can enjoy high-quality organic meats, and not
    the rendered proteins found in many processed pet foods.
  • Your pets will enjoy fresh foods that can be catered to their special
    nutritional requirements.
    You can select the right vegetables, herbs, and other
    spices that have the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, omega-3s, and medicinal
    properties that your pets need.

GI Soothing Bites

This treat contains ingredients that we’ve specifically chosen for gastrointestinal issues. They are anti-inflammatory, low-residue, and calming to the GI tract. It’s perfect for “sensitive” animals.

Ingredients:
¼ cup slippery elm powder*
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp. freshly ground ginger root
3 fresh peppermint leaves or 5 drops essential oil of peppermint
¼ cup potato flour

Procedure:
1. Blend all the ingredients together. Note that the mixture will be
very stiff.
2. Roll into quarter-size balls, and then press flat with fork. Place on
a greased cookie sheet and bake at 325°F for 25 minutes. Let cool
before giving to your pets.

Store extra portions in the freezer or refrigerator and consume within
one week. If stored in the freezer, this can stay fresh for up to three
months.
