New Product At The Diabetic Dog Bakery

Bones at the Diabetic Dog Bakery

We are pleased to offer a new product at the Diabetic Dog Bakery, the ‘Bones and Bones’ dog treats. We offer 5 flavors: Mint and Parsley, Sweet Potato, Pumpkin and Banana, Blueberry, plus Flaxseed and Cherry.

‘Bones and Bones’ is a product we have decided to offer again. We sold them successfully for the first 3 years in our bakery but upon relocating for my husband’s company, we were not set up to offer them. We were asked by our long-time customers to reconsider baking our captivating recipe for ‘Bones and Bones’.  We changed our minds!

Order as many pounds as you like and join the satisfaction that our long-time customers know.  We look forward to introducing our ‘Bones and Bones’ to new four-legged customers.

Homemade Marrow Pops

For the basic homemade marrow pops, pour the GF organic homemade marrow broth into an ice cube tray of any shape. Freeze until solid and store/serve.

We always encourage fuzzy child parents to start with highly nutritional homemade marrow broth.  Most grocery stores (such as Whole Foods), Co-ops or even local farmers, have frozen beef bones for a very reasonable price.  I get a bag of about 6 bones for $4.00 but these bones come from organic grass-fed beef.

Place about 3 marrow bones in a large pot filled ½ full of filtered water.  Bring to a medium boil for about 20 minutes.  Remove the bones and throw away because the new veterinarian standards are that meat bones are too hard for the back teeth and may cause hairline fractures.

These are only a few examples of healthy items you can put in the middle of the marrow pops:

  • Chicken, beef or salmon – A piece of cooked chicken or turkey or salmon can be added to each pop. What a yummy surprise in the middle!
  • Homemade Dog Treats – You can stick in small pieces of homemade dog treats. Don’t worry if some of the treat is not totally submerged in each marrow pop.  It will inspire your fuzzy child to get to the treat faster!
  • Vegetables – Adding vegetables like sweet potatoes, spinach, broccoli, green beans and/or green peas will give additional nutrition.  You can even add several to each cup before starting the freezing process.

Homemade marrow pops will last about a month in the freezer, but they don’t usually stay around that long.  When frozen, pop out into a plastic freezer bag for storage and start on your next batch.

More Ideas:

  1. Colored Ice Trays – I strongly suggest you use a different colored ice trays when making marrow pops for your fuzzy child/children. This way, other family members understand that these are for the four-legged family members. These marrow pops are safe for humans to eat and handle.
  1. Location – These marrow pops are best enjoyed outdoors as a water hose makes clean up a snap.
  2. Rubber Cupcake Liners – Place the rubber cupcake liners on a cookie sheet and fill with the homemade marrow broth about halfway.  When frozen, pop out of the rubber liners into a plastic freezer bag for storage.

**Make sure that the marrow pop shape is the right size for your dog’s breed and size.  We don’t want anyone choking during this fun outdoor activity. If you are not sure of the size you should be using, please consult with your veterinarian. 

HOT NEWS: Gene Therapy Used to Cure Diabetes in Dogs

Just announced this week, five diabetic beagles were injected with two extra genes about four years ago and have not needed insulin injections since. Two are still alive and living without diabetes.

This is the first long-term research cure with large animals and seems to have been a success. One aspect that was interesting to me, was that when dogs were injected with only one of the two genes, they remained diabetic and insulin dependent. Each gene has a specific job: one makes insulin and the other an enzyme that regulates glucose into the muscles.

More information can be read by searching Google for “Gene Therapy in Diabetic Dogs”.

Goat’s Rue to Help Dog Diabetes

Goat’s Rue may be effective in diabetic dogs.

Goat’s Rue is an herb that has been known to be effective for treating diabetes in dogs.  This herb can lower blood glucose levels without causing them to fall to dangerously low levels.  It also seems to aid in reducing the risk of cataracts too.
