7 Step recipe for homemade sensitive dog treats!

26/09/2018


For those of you who love to bake and want to make something special for your best friend without upsetting their sensitive stomach, try this at home.


These treats are nutritious, naturally hypoallergenic and tasty and, being gluten and grain free, are ideal for most sensitive dogs.


What you will need:


  • A generous helping of white fish (e.g. haddock, cod or coley).

  • Gluten free flour (or potato flour; you can also use mashed potato for softer treats).

  • One large egg - omit this if egg allergy is known or suspected.

  • A dollop of olive oil.

  • A little dill or parsley (not chives which are in the onion family Ė onions are poisonous to dogs).

  • One small garlic clove (garlic, although also an allium is fine for dogs in small quantities Ė itís even believed to be a good flea deterrent!).

Follow these steps!


  1. Preheat the oven (to about 180 degrees C).
  2. Prepare the fish and carefully remove all bones.
  3. Pop the fish, egg, oil, herbs and garlic in the blender and mix well until smooth.
  4. Tip the mixture out into a mixing bowl and add the flour. Mix again until all the flour is folded in.
  5. Transfer to a baking tray lined with grease proof paper.
  6. Cook for about 8-10 minutes - the time will vary depending on the depth of your tray and how much mixture you have made so keep an eye on it.
  7. Leave the treats to cool (out of reach of the dogs) and cut into yummy bite-size squares!

This recipe can be also stored in the fridge for a couple of days. Larger batches can be frozen and defrosted for use as needed.


As with all treats, use in moderation. Donít forget to reduce your dogís main diet allowance to allow for the extra calories that treats provide.


For dogs who require fat restriction, the oil can be substituted with fat-free cottage cheese and an extra egg white.
