Home Made Healthy Dog Treets

My Fur baby, Louis <3

Our pets today are presenting illnesses most commonly associated with their human care takers.

Their systems like ours, are not designed to assimilate wheat based products, high volumes of salt, sugar and cooked food.

As owners we tend to treat them like our children, feeding them toast, biscuits, cakes etc (which should be avoided in humans too)

Canned Dog foods are generally high in salt and most contain wheat. Dried dog food as with most treats are mainly wheat, with meat flavourings.

It has become such a problem that we can now find ‘Gluten Free’ Dog food and treats in most pet stores and supermarkets. 

It all makes for good business for the Pet Food, Super Markets and Veterinary industries.

Below you will find a list of nutrients that your dog needs daily.

Recommended Dietary Requirements for Dogs

Protein………18% – Fat…………..5%

Feeding our dogs on a Raw diet, including some fruit and Vegetables is the preferred method to keep them in optimal health.  Most family butchers sell ‘dog food’ which consists of whole ground chickens that are unsold.  Here in the UK we can also find suppliers of various meats for our dogs, such as this one: http://www.naturaw.co.uk/product-category/raw-food/

Making our own dog treats ensures that they are getting the healthiest nibbles and they will love them.

Dog Treat Recipe

Some I made earlier today.

One ripe Banana (Mashed up)                                  

One Cup Gluten Free Organic Oats                                

One Cup Gluten Free Flour                                               

Half a Cup of Organic Peanut Butter                            

One Tablespoon of Organic Coconut oil                         

Two/Three Tablespoons of Organic Honey                 

Pinch of Pink Himalayian Salt.


In a bowl mix together all ingredients until they come together in a ball.  Roll out on a floured surface and cut out into whatever shape you like.

Cook in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, turning over half way through.

Cool down before treating your pet.

P.S. They are also a healthy treat for us humans, they taste very scrummy.  :)


If you have a recipe you would like to share with us, we would love to try it.
