Dandelion greens are abundant in most of the Country at the moment and so here is a recipe and benefits of using dandelion greens in your dog’s homemade treats. They are packed with iron, calcium and vitamins K, E, B and C. The greens also contain more protein than fresh spinach. The best part is they are gluten-free and could be easily adjusted for paleo or vegetarian treats.
1-1/4 cup brown rice flour
1-1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup homemade chicken broth
1/2 cup water
1 cup combination of vegetables (squash/dandelion greens, beets/dandelion greens,
sweet potatoes/dandelion greens)
Preheat oven to 350 F. Chop all wet ingredients in a Magic Bullet or food processor until well blended. Mix all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well. Turn the dough onto a board and roll out to cut with desired shapes. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 25 minutes. Remove and store in a non-airtight container such as a treat jar on the counter.
Share below on how you adjusted this recipe for your furry family member or another veggie combination with dandelion greens.

On December 1, 2015, Dave’s Pet Food of Agawam, Massachusetts, had confirmed it is voluntarily recalling a batch of their Dave’s Simply the Best dry dog food. A consumer complained that an odor was present after purchase but wasn’t sure what was causing the odor.
The product involved was one batch with the ‘Best Use By’ date of October 15, 2016.
Southern Tier Pet Nutrition is the co-packer of the recalled batch and tested the samples submitted by the consumer and tested high in peroxide, which indicated the product was rancid. The company felt that the rice brand was the issue and destroyed any remaining totes.

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.
Starting today, we will be offering our Healthy Hearts, Bark Boxes and Italian Chowsers at 44% off. We were able to get a discounted shipment from our large vendor this month, which enabled us to give a 44% discount on these items. Each pound will be baked fresh.
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.
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.

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.
