Pumpkin Dog Treat Recipe

  Posted on   by   No comments


Yesterday, I wrote about the health benefits of pumpkin for our pets and us.  Below is a dog treat recipe I found online some time back.  It’s easy to make and most dogs I’ve given them to love them!

Pumpkin Dog Treats

1 15 oz. can pumpkin (be sure it’s pumpkin and not pumpkin pie mix)

3/4 cup Cream of Rice cereal

1/2 cup powered dry milk

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Mix all ingredients, then drop by small spoonfuls on greased cookie sheet.  I use parchment paper and it makes clean up easier.

Bake for 15-20 minutes.

These treats are a bit moist and they don’t have preservatives, so they keep best if stored in airtight container in refrigerator.  This recipe makes a large batch, so if you won’t be feeding within a few days, store them in airtight container in freezer and take out what you’ll need.

Since pumpkin does have a high degree of fiber, feed very small amounts initially to be sure your dog can tolerate them.  Start with 1/4 treat per day for small breeds, 1/2 treat daily for large breeds.
