These strips work as a more affordable substitute for the organic chewy treats
available in pet stores. Additionally, they break apart effortlessly, so you can
serve tinier pieces as training rewards. Fruit and veggies are abundant with vitamin
C, which can boost your dog’s body’s defense mechanisms.
• 1 small sweet potato
• 1 medium banana
• 1 cup carrots, minced
• 1/2 cup unsweetened organic applesauce
• 2 cups of whole wheat flour (white if your pooch is allergic to wheat)
• 1 cup of rolled oats
• 1/3 cup of water
1. Cook the sweet potato in the microwave for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the
insides are soft. Set aside and allow cooling.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
3. Mash the banana and sweet potato in a large mixing bowl with a hand masher
until smooth. Incorporate the carrots, flour, and oats. Gradually add in the
applesauce and water while mixing.
4. The ingredients will form soft dough. Roll the dough on to a lightly floured
surface until its 1/8 inch thick.
5. Cut the dough into strips.
6. Cook on a baking sheet for 25 minutes.
7. Store leftover strips in the fridge for up to two weeks.
While many dogs can deal with a range of different treats given in small amounts,
some may get indigestion if you switch foods too soon or excessively.
Prior to starting making your own homemade dog food, speak with your vet and ask if he / she has any specific ingredient recommendations, as some dog breeds may be more
susceptible to food allergies than others.
After acquiring your vet’s approval, change your dog’s food over little by little, slowing blending in a homemade dish with your regular food for a couple of days to a week.
