Healthy treats your pet will love!

Kitty Treats

1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup tuna oil, chicken broth or beef bouillon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all ingredients into a dough. Dust hands with flour and form small, 1/2-inch thick, round biscuits. Set on greased cookie sheet. Bake 30 minutes or until biscuits are slightly browned. Cool before serving.

Doggie Yum Yums

2 cups whole wheat flour
6 Tbsp. margarine
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 egg (beaten)
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 Tbsp. molasses
1/4 tsp. garlic powder or 1 small garlic clove
Approx. 1/2 cup water

Combine dry ingredients. Blend in margarine. Add egg and molasses. Mix thoroughly. Add enough water to form a dough ball. Roll out 1/4 inch thick and cut into shapes. Placed on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.

Parmesan Doggie Delights

3-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
1/2 cup Italian-style breadcrumbs
1/4 cup parsley flakes
2 Tbs. catsup
4 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 tsp instant beef bouillon granules
1-1/2 cups boiling water
1 egg (beaten)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine flour, powdered milk, grated cheese, breadcrumbs and parsley and mix. Add catsup, oil, and beef bouillon to boiling water, mix well. Add egg, and then slowly blend it into the flour mixture.  Knead dough until stiff (you may need to add more flour).  Roll on floured surface to 1/4" thick and cut into shapes. Bake 30-35 minutes (watch carefully to prevent burning) on a non-stick baking pan.

Kitty Cookies

1 c. whole wheat flour
6 oz. can tuna in oil – un-drained
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil OR bacon grease
1 egg

Combine all ingredients; mix well; add small amounts of water if too thick. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to ¼” thick. Cut shapes out of dough with a cookie cutter and place 1” apart on an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes, or until firm. Allow to cool on wire racks.

Storing Your Homemade Pet Treats

Your homemade pet biscuits can last for months if you refrigerate them in an airtight container.  If you freeze them, they should last for several months longer.

Depending on your pet's taste, you may want to bring the refrigerated treats to room temperature before serving. Take out what you need a little at a time to ensure they stay tasty!  Or, if you have a dog that loves ice cubes and other cold treats, she may enjoy them straight from the refrigerator or even the freezer.
