Natural Dog Treats To Prepare At Home

Preparing your dog treats at home is a good option to save money, provide healthier food and pick on fresh ingredients that are good for your precious fur baby.

Commercially made treats can be harmful too and there have been many instances where some of these products have been recalled due to harmful ingredients used. Home-cooked treats are more natural and organic in a way because you can control what kind of ingredients to use.

Before embarking on the preparing natural treats for your dog, please ensure that you are familiar with the many other ingredients that a dog cannot ingest. Here are few examples of food to avoid when preparing your dog’s natural treats:

Onions – can be poisonous to a dog affecting its blood and causing anaemia

Grapes/Raisins – can cause kidney failure

Chocolate – contains methylxanthines which is a toxin for dogs

Xylitol – found in sweeteners used for candies and gums, it can cause liver failure

Macadamia nuts – can cause muscle weakness and paralysis

Canned goods (human consumption) – due to high levels of salt (and sugar for some canned goods)

There are more but be careful with your food preparation.

 

Below are lists of resources where you can find recipes for your fur babies’ treats that you can make at home to ensure the highest level of quality and freshness your dogs deserve.
