Mickey loves home made dog food and treats. I will be sharing some of his favourite ones now and then. Home made is so much more healthier for your pet, and is free of preservatives, fillers, and chemicals that are often found in commercial dog foods.
Any left-overs may be stored in the fridge, for up to 4 days. Or, individual servings may be frozen for future defrosting and feeding.
1 cup cooked chicken or turkey
1/2 cup of steamed vegetables (carrots, broccoli, squash, spinach, sweet potato) or 1 jar of veggie baby food
1/2 cup of prepared brown rice
4 Tbsp. no-sodium broth
Combine all ingredients and serve or freeze half depending on the size of your dog.

1 tsp vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached white flour
1 cup rolled oats

Mix dry ingredients together then mix in the peanut butter and hot water. Add more flour if the dough is to sticky. Knead the dough well on a floured surface then roll dough out to a 1/4" thickness. Cut into whatever shapes you want.
