 All of our homemade dog treat recipes have been reviewed by a veterinarian. They are intended as a treat or snack. Treats—both DIY dog treats and pre-made—should only constitute a small percentage of your dog’s daily food, as feeding too many treats can lead to nutrient deficiencies. If your pet has health issues or if you have any concerns, consult your pet’s veterinarian before offering them a new food item.
