Dog snacks are not only good for shortening the time between two meals; they can be a great training tool. These yummy bites are something like a reward for your pup. Learn more about the importance of rewarding a dog with treats here.
Also, treats are a great way to ‘cheat’ your dog and give them prescription therapy. These will come in handy if you are dealing with a stubborn pet that is not keen on swallowing pills or taking bitter syrup. To be honest, most dogs hate that.
You can buy yummy bites for your pup in every pet shop, but if you’re creative, you can make them at home. The point is to prepare something delicious and nutritious for your pet. But you have to be careful, as not every human food is good for your pooch.
You can find a list of non-dog foods below:
CBD Oil as Holistic Remedy and Supplement
CBD oil is an excellent natural supplement that is desirable in your dog’s nutrition. Even when your four-legged pet is ill, cannabidiol from this product can alleviate many of the problems that arise as a result of the disease.
But it is not always advisable to administer the cannabidiol to the sick dog in this way. In the case of illness, there is a specific dose of cannabidiol to be adhered to. When you make treats yourself, you can’t always determine the right dosage.
Since not every pup will like the taste and smell of CBD oil, they won’t take it in its original form. So, forget the oral administration. You have to be creative and find a way for your dog to get the right dose of cannabidiol.
CBD home-made dog snacks are a great way to calm an anxious dog or give them a dose of the nutrients this product contains. These treats are a great way to please your pooch and somehow shorten the time you spend at home these days.
Look for Quality CBD Oil
You can give CBD oil to your dog in many ways. Injecting the dose into a soft chew or treat is especially helpful as the aromas mask the taste and smell of CBD oil. Also, you usually give treats to your pet from the hand, so they don’t have time to sniff it out and find the ‘secret ingredient.’
To get the most out of using CBD oil, you need to get a quality product. There are many copies on the market. Almost daily, unknown companies and brands appear and offer ‘the best CBD oil.’ Unfortunately, this is far from the truth.
It’s desirable to check my link for some instructions. Because, if you do not know what you are buying and who you are buying from, you can easily be fooled. Not only will you throw away money, but you can also endanger your pet’s health.
Copies of CBD oil often contain THC and other toxic elements. So always look for products without THC, of organic origin, marked as ‘full-spectrum,’ and where third-party analysis certificate information is available. Only oil like this can be safely put into home-made treats for your furry buddy.
Sweet Pumpkin Dices
Pumpkin is a significant ingredient in the human diet and is completely safe for your dog. These vegetables have a natural sweetness that pleases your pup. Also, pumpkin fiber is excellent in case your pet suffers from constipation or diarrhea.
Sweet pumpkin dices are an easy recipe to which you can add CBD oil. This simple dessert for your dog is effortless to make and consists of only two ingredients. Due to the making process, each dice will contain the exact dose of cannabidiol.
Mix up yogurt and pumpkin puree in an equal quantity. Take a spoon of the mass and put it in one by one in an ice cube mold. Add a certain number of drops of CBD oil to each cube and mix directly in the mold. Leave it overnight in the freezer, and the next day, your dog can enjoy a delicious pumpkin (and cannabidiol, but shhh!).
Frozen Yogurt Treats
This dog treat is made in a similar way to the previous one – you’ll need an ice cube mold. Mix up 4 cups of vanilla flavored yogurt (sugar-free) with one cup of melted peanut butter (the easiest way to heat it is in the microwave).
CBD oil can be added directly to the blend of yogurt and peanut butter. But for better dosing, it is best to mix it after pouring the blend into the ice cube mold. If you decide to put the whole amount of oil into the mixture, then you can pour it into cupcake papers. Whatever you decide, leave the treats overnight in the fridge. These yummy and healthy CBD bites can be used on hot summer days as great refreshment.
Sweet Potato Cookies
When making baked dog treats, keep an eye on the temperature. If you are adding CBD oil, do not bake them at temperatures above 350 F. At high temperatures, the CBD oil begins to evaporate, and the cannabidiol loses its medicinal properties.
Cook two sweet potatoes and make a puree of them. Stir in one egg, half of a cup of coconut flour, and half of a cup of coconut oil. Add one tablespoon of CBD oil, and if necessary, water, to knead the mass. Form cookies (or any shape you want) and bake them in a preheated oven at 350 F for about 20 minutes. Let the treats cool down. These cookies can stay in a jar for up to one month. If any left.
Ready-made dog treats often contain flavor enhancers and a variety of fillers. Clearly, a home-made snack is much healthier than those from the store. Preparing treats for your pup can save you some money too. Plus, your pet will be much more satisfied, because the yummy bites you made are certainly tastier than industrial ones.
