National Dog Biscuit Day

National Dog Biscuit Day is February 23rd! Treats are a great way to get Fido’s tail wagging. If you like cooking, why not make your pooch some snacks? A Westlake Hills, TX vet offers some simple dog biscuit recipes in this article.

Pumpkin Bites

Combine pureed pumpkin with natural peanut butter, egg, and whole-wheat flour. Roll out the batter, and use a cookie cutter to divide it into small portions. Cook at 375 for 20 minutes, or until hard.

Doggy Meatballs

For this treat, you’ll want to mix ground turkey or tuna with cheese, parsley, whole-wheat flour, and cooked eggs. Roll into meatballs, and cook at 400 for about 20 minutes.


Jerky is a terrific treat for Fido! Cut chicken, salmon, or beef into strips, and then cook it on low for several hours. You can also make ‘jerky’ out of sweet potato or apple slices.

Beef Yums

Combine beef, cheese, eggs, sodium-free broth, olive oil, and whole-wheat flour in a food processor. Pour the batter into a brownie pan, and then cook at 350 for 20 minutes.

Peanut Butter Bark Bites

Combine ripe banana, natural peanut butter, plain yogurt, whole-wheat flour, and an egg. Add some water or sodium-free broth if it’s too thick. Divide into cookies, and then bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.

Chicken Bits

Mix canned chicken with bacon bits, shredded cheese, whole-wheat flour, and sodium-free broth. You can also add some organic baby food. Separate into small portions and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350.

Turkey Woofers

Mix hamburger or ground turkey with egg, bacon bits, and cheese in a food processor. You can also add some dog-safe cooked veggies, like peas, sweet potatoes, or spinach. Divide into small portions, and then bake at 375 for about 20 minutes.

Super-Special Doggy Snacks

Combine bacon fat with egg, bacon bits, cheese, whole-wheat flour, organic baby food, liver powder, and water. Cook at 375 for about 15 minutes, or until it hardens. Instant happy pup!
