I was slicing up the turkey for Thanksgiving and noticed that there was quite a bit of turkey left on the bones. It was just on parts I would not use. With all that extra, I made turkey treats for my dogs and they loved them.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. of cooked turkey blended ( NO turkey skin, bones, or fat)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 cup quick cooking rolled oats
  • 1 cup water or broth*

*Note: If using broth remember that onions and garlic (raw, cooked, or powder) are harmful to dogs so it's suggested not to use it!

Directions:

In a blender or food processor, combine turkey meat and beaten eggs until well blended and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour and rolled oats and add blended turkey. Add water or broth to flour, stir till dough is sticky.

Divide dough into 2 balls. Knead each ball on a well floured surface (about 2 minutes), adding flour until the dough is no longer sticky.

With a rolling pin, roll out dough to between 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with biscuit cutter and place on lightly greased baking sheet.

Ad

Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Time should adjusted if size is different than in this recipe.

Cool on rack and store, at room temperature, in a container with loose fitting lid.

They should keep for 3 weeks, however you can freeze for longer use.

Source: Recipe is from Mac Pherson's K-9 Cookbook. I substituted turkey in the place of ground beef.

Looks like a great recipe. But, turkey is a very rich meat & a lot of dogs get diarrhea from it. Try using chicken instead. What to make with all that left over scrap meat? Why Soup of course!

Editor's Note: Most veterinarians recommend avoiding garlic and onions for dogs but some suggest it for natural flea prevention. Please discuss this with your own vet.

Having adopted my third "recycled" dog who is being trained, I was going through a lot more doggie treats than before. I decided to take some bread that was going stale anyway and try an experiment.

I piled up a few slices then cut them into quarters. I laid them out on a cookie sheet, lightly brushed them with healthy olive oil, and sprinkled them with garlic powder. I put them in a low oven for a bit, until they were hard and crunchy, like Melba toast. All healthy ingredients and they basically cost me nothing, I used the too stale for me bread and the dogs love them. May try flax seed next time!

Editor's Note: Most veterinarians recommend against giving your dog garlic, but there some do advocate for it. Please talk to your own vet prior to feeding dogs garlic.

If you'll do a google search for dog treats you'll find a lot of recipes where garlic is included. It's moderation. As to the one stating she wouldn't give bread to a dog; it's probably better that the corn and all the other stuff they put in dog food. I do know that onions, as one mentioned are not to be fed to dogs and I course you wouldn't fed your dog a garlic pod. But the amount of garlic you're talking about is minor. I like your suggestion and I plan on giving it a try.

I've collected these pet treat recipes over a period of the past 20 years, have tried them all, and cats and dogs have liked them all. Of course, we've been owned by a few that would eat just about anything, so that may not be the best judge of them being wholesome.

My dogs love bite-size shredded wheat as a treat. There's no sugar, no salt, and it adds fiber to their diet. It also helps clean their teeth because they have to crunch it.

Here is a great idea for dog treats that are easy to make, high in fiber, all natural, and your dog will love them! I started making these when my Lab got a case of chronic diarrhea and they helped a lot.

    You can use grease drippings, gravy, or applesauce, it won't have the same breath freshers in it but dog will still love em. The honey will make them a nice golden brown color and if you don't have honey use brown sugar. I also make these and use 2/3 cup peanut butter but sometimes I have to add more water.

    The great thing about these dog treats is that you can make them in your microwave. It's really nice in summer so you don't heat up kitchen.

    I am looking for some quick and easy homemade dog treat recipes. I'm not very good at working the computer to find these things so please email me any recipes.

    I have one recipe: 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1 cup peanut butter and 3/4 cup milk. Mix until moistened then knead for 5 minutes, roll into balls and use a fork to criss-cross cookies just like you would for regular cookies. Bake 350 for 20 minutes and cook completely.

    My dogs LOVE them but I would like more recipes. I hope your dogs like these, please send me some recipes. Thank you.

    I wanted to make dog treats for my four beautiful chows, but this site said I couldn't feed them certain things. How can I get around it?

    I have a 15 year old chocolate Poodle and she has been diagnosed with kidney failure. The vet put her on a diet of kidney trouble food only. Does anyone have an idea of a treat that she can eat? The vet gave her "allergy treats" that are very expensive. She is eight and a half pounds.

    Read the ingredients labels on the food and treats. Whatever kind of meat that is in them can be used as a treat... probably chicken, so cook some chicken and use small pieces as treats.
