Dog Bone Recipes

You will notice very often that your dog gets allergies because of ingredients in commercial food products.

It is safer to give your dog, food prepared at home as you have control over the ingredients used. This will ensure your dog’s health and safety. Dog bone recipes come in handy as useful treats and preparation can be a lot of fun as you can use a dog bone cookie cutter and make them in different flavors, sizes and use different ingredients.

Sugar free dog bones can also be made if your dog is diabetic. Some dog bone flavors that your pet will enjoy are; peanut butter bones, Apple spice dog bone treats, beef bones and bacon Cheese Bone Treats.

These are two examples of homemade dog bone recipes:

  • The ingredients you’ll need are two cups soya flour, two cups whole wheat flour, one cup corn meal, one cup wheat germ, one cup dry yeast flakes, one egg, three fourth cup water and half a cup of cooking oil.

    Once you have all these ingredients ready first mix the wheat flour, soya flour, wheat germ, corn meal and yeast flakes in a large bowl. Next mix the water oil and egg together. After that combine both the mixtures and beat it well. Then spread the dough about one fourth inch thick on an oiled baking sheet. Using the dog bone shaped cookie cutter cut the dough and bake them in the oven at 320 degrees F for about 30 minutes. Cool it off and they are ready to eat.
  • If your dog is on a vegetarian diet then you could use the following ingredients; half a cup finely chopped carrots, three cups of parsley minced, two cups of whole wheat flour, two tablespoons of olive oil, two teaspoons of baking powder, one cup of water and two tablespoons of barn. Once you have all these ingredients you need to first preheat the oven at 350 degrees F. Next mix the carrots, parsley and the oil in a bog mixing bowl and in another bowl mix the wheat flour, barn and baking powder. Once you’ve done that combine both the mixtures and slowly add half cup of water and mix it all well till it becomes moist dough. Then knead it for about a minute. Roll the dough to half an inch thickness and cut out the shape you want. Then place it on a greased baking sheet. Bake it for about 30 minutes. Check if the biscuits are brown and little hard. Remove from the oven and cool them.

The internet is a good source for dog bone recipes and dog bone treats, but it would be best to also seek advice from your veterinarian.
