Holiday Doggy Treats

One thing that many of us look forward to at this time of the year is savoring those delicious seasonal cookies. Treats are also one of Fido’s favorite things. Why not make your pooch some yummy snacks? In this article, a London, ON vet lists some doggy treat recipes.


Mix plain yogurt with sodium-free broth and an egg in a blender. Add a doggy biscuit on top for a special finishing touch.


Minced beef or turkey combined with egg, parmesan cheese, whole-wheat breadcrumbs, tomato paste, carrots, peas, parmesan cheese, and parsley make the basis for this treat. You can actually make this one for the family, and just share it with Fido. Bake for about a half hour at 204 C.

Tail Wag Starters

These are bound to get that cute tail going! Combine bacon fat, egg, cold water, shredded cheese, and whole-wheat flour. Cook at 190 C for about 15 minutes.

Puppy Yums

Canned chicken is the basis for these snacks. Mix it with organic baby food, bacon bits, sodium-free broth, shredded cheese, and whole-wheat flour. When you have the batter divided into cookies, bake at 176 C for 15.

Turkey Woofers

Need to use up some leftovers? Add cheese, egg, and dog-safe veggies, like peas, carrots, or sweet potato, to cooked, plain boneless turkey. Blend everything together in a food processor, and divide into small servings. Cook at 190 C for 15-20 minutes.

PB Treats

Combine natural peanut butter with pureed pumpkin or banana, two eggs and whole-wheat flour. Divide the batter into small portions. A half hour at 176 C should do it.

Liver Woofs

Mix beef liver with whole-wheat flour and eggs in a food processor. Pour the mix into a brownie pan and cook at 176 C until firm. Don’t go overboard with these: too much liver is bad for Fido.

Sweet Potato Cookies

Combine sweet potato with two eggs and whole-wheat flour. You can also add banana, applesauce, organic baby food, or canned salmon, turkey, or chicken. Divide into small portions, and then bake for 30 minutes at 176 C.


Safety first! Never give Fido anything that contains garlic, onions, scallions, or chives; nuts; chocolate; pitted fruits; alcohol; grapes, currants, or raisins; or xylitol. Meat on the bone is also unsafe, as are raw dough and yeast.
