Holiday Dog Treats- Mid South Pet Health and Wellness
With the hustle and bustle of the Holiday Season, it can be easy to forget the four legged family members!
To help you out, one of our own staff members shared her favorite homemade treat recipes! Holiday Dog Treats are a fun way to celebrate with the furriest members of your family.
These treats are all easy to make, delicious, and healthy for your pooch!
Meat Lovers Biscuits
–1 pound lean ground beef
-1/2 cup rolled oats
-2 eggs, beaten
-1 1/2 cups water
-3 cups whole wheat flour
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix together the beef and eggs in a bowl, using your hands if necessary to mix completely. In a seperate bowl, mix the flour with the oats, then gradually mix in the beef-egg mixture with your hands until combined. Add the water to form a sticky dough.
Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for three minutes. Roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness, using more flour if necessary, and cut into desired shapes. Place on a greased cookie sheet, and bake for 80 minutes. Allow to cool in the oven for two hours, then serve. Store the treats in an airtight container up to four weeks.
From the Three Dog Bakery Cookbook:
Simple Simon’s Birthday Bones
-2 cups whole wheat flour
-1tbs baking powder
-1 cup natural peanut butter
-1 cup skim milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk. Add wet mixture to dry, and mix well. Turn out dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out to 1/4-inch thick and cut out shapes. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on a rack then store in an airtight container.
Pumpkin Dog Biscuits
-1/2 cup canned pumpkin
-1/2 tsp salt
-2 tbs dry milk
-2 1/2 cups flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Blend eggs and pumpkin together, add salt, dry milk, and flour. Add water as needed to make the dough workable. The dough should be dry and stiff, don’t be concerned with crumbs left in the bowl. (Will be too stiff for an electric mixer) Roll to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut into shapes. Place 1″ apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes on one side, then turn over and bake for another 20 minutes.
Most importantly… Enjoy your holiday dog treats! And Happy Holidays!
