Homemade Special Diet Recipe

Your pet’s been put on a prescription diet…but you LOVE giving him/her treats. How do you stick to the diet AND give treats? Below is an EASY recipe on how to take your special diet (in the canned version) and turn it to a tasty treat, without compromising their diet!

Homemade Treat Recipe

Treats Yield: approx. two dozen treats

Using canned food:

Open the can and shake the loaf of food out of the can.
Cut the loaf into 1/4″ thick slices, and then cut the slices into bite-sized pieces.
Bake the treats in a microwave oven on high for approximately 2½ to 3 minutes.
Store baked treats in the refrigerator and discard leftovers after 5-7 days.
Homemade treats should not exceed 10% of your pet’s total daily intake because heat alters the nutritional characteristics of the food.
Do not freeze homemade treats.

For a conventional oven, follow the instructions above and place the bite-sized pieces on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until crispy.
