Diabetic Dog Treat Sale

Bones and Bones - NEW   Diabetic Dog Bakery has been servicing diabetic and healthy dogs for over 10 years and we are celebrating Memorial Day with 25% off Bones & Bones diabetic-friendly and healthy dog treats. They are sold 30 treats per bag that are made fresh and homemade with non-GMO ingredients including soy, almonds, fava beans, Golden flaxseed and fresh red apples. Our treats contain NO additives, preservatives, chemicals, dyes or by-products.

Almond flour is low in fiber. Red delicious apples contain more potent antioxidants than other types of red apples. The apple skins that contain pectin (fiber) will ferment in the intestines which produces short-chain fatty acids that will prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and support the lining within the intestines.

Bones and Bones are diabetic-friendly with almonds (low carb) and apples (aids in digestion). Each treat is dehydrated naturally to preserve the freshness and crispy dog treats are digested slower as not to affect blood glucose levels in healthy or diabetic dogs.

The treats can be frozen for several months and defrosted individually before feeding to your furry family member. They are even safe for the entire family to eat!

  • Sales ends at 12:01am on May 30th, 2018 (Wednesday).

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.

Customer comments have shown that our diabetic-friendly dog treats have not elevated their 4-legged family member’s glucose levels. We already knew this but love reading and knowing that our        customers are seeing this exciting fact too.

Is Alfalfa Safe For Your Dog (or Cat)

Alfalfa is an ingredient in many commercially available dog and cat foods, and according to PetfoodIndustry.com, consumers are beginning to ask whether this forage belongs in their pet’s diet.

Although alfalfa has some health attributes as a green food, including a whole food source of phytonutrients, there are several reasons to avoid making alfalfa a primary source of protein in your pet’s diet, including the fact that plant-based protein is far from ideal for carnivores.

Check out the complete article that Dr. Becker goes into details on this important ingredient to avoid in our dog and cat daily food.

Diabetic Dog Nutrition – Part 1 Released

Tracey Patterson  has posted on You Tube again and has some very good points about nutrition for dogs in general, as she speaks from experience with a diabetic dog.  This is part one of her Diabetic Dog Boot Camp series, that was released this week. Sign up for her RSS feed and receive Part 2 when released.

It took me many months reading books and talking with several vets, to understand how to make homemade meals for my own dogs. Now…it is the only way to go and they dance for their meals. No more emergency vet bills, no more sick dogs and only healthy skin, fur and guts.  Through the appalling and numerous dog food recalls, along with treat recalls…we decided many years ago to start making our dogs fresh, organic and nutritious food. I soon learned that Daisy’s blood sugar became stable and she needed less insulin on a daily basis. Isn’t this our ultimate goal?

I will be posting several recipes soon and talking about adding ‘bone powder’ to our dog’s food.

Basic Dog Kibble Recipe and How to Make it Organic and Healthy

Due to the continued use of ingredients from China by U.S. dog food companies and continued recalls of contaminated dog food and treats, I have decided to bake kibble for our dogs each week. Below is a recipe I found but have made changes to make it organic and healthy. I have changed the instructions but have left the ingredients crossed out so that you can see how I changed the recipe to make it healthier. Keep in mind when reading dog food or treat recipes:

– Dogs cannot digest milk products (it is the lactose in the milk)

– Some dogs are allergic to whole wheat flour or rye flour because of the gluten

– Bone meal is necessary to build strong dog bones

– Salt is not needed to be added in most recipes

– Worcestershire sauce has many spices including onion and garlic, that is not needed in a dog’s diet

–  Homemade vegetable broth is far more healthier than store bought (salt added) broth

– Fresh fruit and vegetables are healthier than dried

– Always substitute pork products with healthier lean meat, such as turkey or chicken

This is a basic kibble recipe that you can change for varying taste.  Seal enough fresh healthy dog kibble in a Seal-a-Meal food storage bag (or similar type of bag)  for each day. The kibble will keep in an airtight container for several weeks in the refrigerator or several months in the freezer.  Every morning take out one bag of frozen kibble and place in the refrigerator so you will have fresh kibble for the next day.  (1 c. per dog x 2 meals = 4 c. fresh kibble for 2 dogs)

4 cups whole wheat flour or oat flour
2 cups rye flour or brown rice flour

1/2 cup pumpkin powder
2 cups nonfat milk powder
2 teaspoons bone meal
1 cup flaxseed

1/2 cup oat bran
2 1/2 3 tablespoons dried parsley spinach flakes or 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon kosher salt
4 eggs
1 cup corn oil  1/2 cup Blended oil
4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 cups water or 1 cup homemade broth
4 cups  1-1/2 lbs. cooked ground beef, pork, lamb, duck, chicken or turkey
2 large cooked and puréed sweet potatoes or 1 – 15 oz. canned organic pure pumpkin
1-1/2 cups chopped dried apples or  4 medium chopped fresh apples
2 cups frozen chopped spinach – thawed and drained or 1 large pkg. of frozen spinach

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray two large cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, pumpkin powder, bone meal, wheat germ, oat bran, and parsley.

3. In a smaller bowl, beat the eggs and blend them with the oil, broth, pumpkin, spinach, apples and meat.

4. Fold in the wet ingredient mixture and combine it until evenly distributed. It takes elbow grease to mix this but you can use a Kitchen-aid mixer.

5. Spread the dough onto the two cookie sheets while making it very flat. Use a knife to score into long lengths but do not score width wise.

8. Bake for 45 minutes or until the kibble is golden brown.

9. When you remove the kibble from the oven, it will be  moist. Let it sit on cooling racks for about 30 minutes. Then separate the rows of kibble and cut into bite-sized squares. I have basset hounds and decided to cut the kibble into 1/2″ squares. After separating the kibble, place back into the oven for another 30 minutes and then turn off the oven but leave the kibble in the oven.

Variations:  Other healthy ingredients you can add for flavor and beneficial nutrients:  barley, fresh basil leaf, beets, carrots, green beans, green peas, nutritional yeast flakes, potatoes, rolled oats, rosemary and zucchini.
