If you've been following our previous recipes, you know we love using oat flour. But this time, we're going to mix it up a little bit with whole wheat flour! Whole wheat flour is completely safe for your dogs to consume as long as they have no wheat allergy. Please consult with your veterinarian on any allergies or health concerns your pet might have before making treats for your dogs.
Spinach contains large amounts of vitamins A, B, C, and K. It also has other nutritional benefits that stimulate the digestive tract. Of course, feed your dogs in moderation.
Chicken broth is great for your dog's joint health as well as helps detox your dog's kidneys and liver. It contains gelatin which helps restore and protect the gut lining and fights against leaky gut and improves their digestion.
Parmesan cheese contains vitamins and minerals like calcium, vitamin A, B-complex vitamins and essential fatty acids. Definitely feed your dogs cheese in moderation because cheese is typically very high in sodium.
Parsley freshens your dog's breath because it contains limonene which is an oil that kills bad mouth bacteria! It also contains iron and vitamins B, C and K.
Eggs are a great source of protein! They help provide great health benefits for dogs like improved skin and coat and stronger teeth and bones!
Olive oil helps prevent cardiovascular disease and diabetes. It also helps manage your dog's weight, boosts their immune system, protects their joints and good for their skin and coat.
