How to make homemade biscuits for your dog – by ethicalDeal guest blogger Katrina Roberto

We put so much care into making sure our meals are healthy, so why not do the same for our fur babies? After visiting the Calgary Pet Expo this past spring, I was inspired to try a homemade dog treat recipe. Like humans, some dogs have special dietary needs. Some pups have food allergies, sensitive stomachs or dental issues which can be disturbed when you feed them the wrong treats. Presence of a food allergy can be seen through chronic ear inflammation, constant foot biting or licking, or gastrointestinal problems.
Every time my dog would eat beef, he would moan and moan with upset bowels for the next 48 hours. I am not a vet and not sure if he is allergic, intolerant or just too daft to know when enough is enough, but for his comfort, I found it’s best to limit his beef intake. The beauty of homemade treats is that you are completely aware of your dog’s snacks, although homemade goodies may not deter some from sneaking a couple garbage bites. Certain dogs will take to homemade treats right away but fussier eaters may not. For DIY dog treats, I like to use the recipe below because it is beef-free.
