Ideas for Homemade Treats
If you are using canned product, cut up some bite-sized pieces and bake in your microwave for approximately two and a half to three minutes. For a conventional oven, bake at 350 degrees for approximately thirty minutes, or until desired texture.
If you are feeding the dry form, grind the kibbles into flour using a blender and mix with enough water to form dough. Shape into “cookies” and bake them on a cookie sheet in the oven for approximately thirty minutes at 350º or until crispy.
Oregano may be added to enhance the palatability. All homemade treats need to be stored in the refrigerator no longer than five to seven days to maintain their freshness and prevent spoilage.
As you know, it is very important for your pets to stay strictly on the prescribed food and this will allow them to feel special and spoiled.
These homemade treats should not exceed 10% of your pets’ total daily intake, as baking the treats does alter the nutritional characteristics of the food.
