Treats

I just made my own recipe for liver cookies and both of my GR love it. My recipe consists of 1 lb. liver run thru processor, 2 eggs 1 cup cornmeal 1 cup flour and 2 tablespoons minced garlic spread on foil on a cookie sheet sprayed with Pam and baked for 20 minutes then cut up in treat sized pcs.

I commend you folks who give home made treats - I'm sure Remy would love it if i did, but alas he's stuck with nothing but dogswell for his treats

Question though I thought garlic was of the major no-nos for dogs. I thought garlic and onions killed red blood cells, or something like that. Am I mistaken?

Garlic in large amounts is most certainly dangerous to dogs, as it does kill red blood cells and can cause anemia. There are studies that state small amounts of garlic can help boost your dogs immune system and rid their bodies of toxins. If you choose to feed garlic to your dog, it needs to be carefully moderated.

Lennap - Should you ever have interest in making treats, it's actually really easy. You can cut up liver, beef, chicken, sweet potato, and just dehydrate it/dry it out in the oven. Biscuit treats are completely customizable and you can be as simple as using baby food mixed with whole wheat.
There are some really great cold dog treats if you live in a place that gets hot in the summer.

I make all my dogs treats. I have an inexpensive Nesco dehydrator and use chicken breasts, cheap cuts of steak, sweet potatoes, hot dogs, etc. and dehydrate. I know it's all human grade food and there is nothing in it that I wouldn't eat (except the hot dogs and I just don't like them that well).

I have a whole board on Pinterest full of recipes for dog treats. I am amazed at how many followers that board has too!

I have a peanut butter and pumpkin one that Roxxi LOVES and it is almost fool proof too!

I haven't tried dehydrating them, but I did try bananas. They came out ok, but I wasn't thrilled with them. Having said that the dogs loved them. No matter how long I left them in they didn't get really hard and crunchy. More like less mushy. I did use blueberries with our Aussie who died in February of a brain tumor. They were part of a home cooked diet that I had her on in hopes of slowing down the progression, but by the time she showed symptoms it was only a month until we had to have her put down.

Wendi, would you mind posting the link to that board? I'd like to follow it to. I pretty much just stick with dehydrated meats, but every so often I'm in a baking mood and whip up something different. I like making my own recipes, but some inspiration is always good. And I love treats that are designed for dog's health, such as pumpkin or banana.

Tayla's Mom, I'm sorry for your loss. I wish there was a treat that would give dogs extra years.
