DIY natural dog biscuit recipes

Dog biscuits are not cheap! They are also usually jam packed with preservatives, sugar and other unhealthy ingredients. Bake your own dog biscuits for your pooch using natural ingredients – in this way you’ll know exactly what goes into them and you’ll save money too!

Here are 3 easy-to-bake dog biscuit recipes that you can make at home. 

1. Basic dog biscuit recipe

Ingredients:
2 cups of whole wheat flour (substitute with rolled oats, spelt or wheat germ OR a mixture of these if you like)
2 cups of pureed veggies or fruit – use sweet potato, grated carrot or blueberries
1 cup water

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Mix whole wheat flour and ? in a large mixing bowl. Pour in one cup of water and blend until smooth (add more if necessary). Add in the pureed veggies or fruit and mix until all the ingredients are well blended.
3. Roll out the dough to about a ¼ inch thick on a lightly floured surface.
4. Use a cookie cutter to cut into shapes. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and place biscuits ½ inch apart.

    Hi Ruth. You can try our Nurture Calm Pheromone Collar for cats on the older cat. It usually take approximately 30 days to break this kind of behaviour that appears to be coming from a place of insecurity. The pheromone collar naturally releases the same kind of pheromones that your older cat’s mothers used to release when she was a kitten. Make sure that when the kitten is around the older cat get lots of attention and healthy treats too. Please shout if there is anything else. Have a great day!

    Get a felliway diffuser. It works like a charm. I own and run a cattery. It calms cats…..the felliway pheromone.

    I got a kitten about a month ago & my problem is my older cat will just not get used to him. What I want to know is how long do u think she will take to get used to him & what can I do about it? She still hisses & spits & slaps at him. I’m desperate.
