Healthy home-made dog treats are a little time-consuming, but they can be very healthy and will cost far less than the kind of treats you get from stores. You can get creative and add ingredients that your furry friend loves to make them even more appetizing.

Unfortunately, some dogs are sensitive or intolerant to certain ingredients; if this is the case with your pet then you must find out what their sensitivities are before making any home-made snacks for them. If you ever run into any problems giving your dog homemade dog treats then you should go back to store bought food instead.

The measurements in this homemade dog treats recipe are just a guide and you can adjust accordingly if your pet likes something more or less. If you want to up the amount of protein then increase the lean meat content, but make sure there is enough carbohydrates as well so they don’t get malnourished. The basic idea when making any home-made treat for your pet is to have 2 parts carbohydrate (fruit & veggies) , 1 part fat (cheese, eggs, oil…) and 1 part meat.

You may need to adjust the amounts depending on what ingredients you use and how much you make at once; try these out and experiment until you find a perfect balance your furry friend enjoys!
