Sweet Potato Chews


Natural Treats for DogsSweet Potato Chews


Ingredients:

  • 1 raw sweet potato or 1 yam

Cooking Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 250°F.
  • Wash the sweet potato or yam (dark orange type).
  • Cut the sweet potato down the middle lengthwise.
  • Then cut long, lengthwise slices about 1/3 of an inch wide and place them (not touching) on a cookie sheet in a single layer.
  • Bake in the oven at 250 F for about 3 hours - this leaves the treats chewy.
  • If your dog prefers a crunchy texture, bake them for 20 to 30 minutes longer.
                                                      

Natural Pain Relief for Pets

Over the years I have had the privilege of having many pets in my life. If you are like me, you would do anything to help your pets find relief from pain. Pharmaceutical drugs may not be your pets only path to pain relief. Below you will find a list of homeopathic remedies to help you manage your pets pain at home. These remedies can be safely used without running the risk of unwanted side effects, allergic reactions, and undesirable interactions with other medications.

Bone Broth to Nourish Sick, Finicky and Older Pets

Bone broth is a great first food for animals recovering from GI irritation or illness. Also, if you have a pet that’s finicky, you can also use it as a topper on food. If you have a pet that doesn’t want to eat anything, feeding bone broth provides concentrated nourishment and helps get the GI tract functioning again.

I use a whole organic chicken. You can also use beef thigh bones (also called "soup bones"). As you continue to simmer the bones, they release all of their minerals and marrow into the water.

I added virgin coconut oil to the batter because it’s awesome for dogs and humans alike. If you don’t have coconut oil on hand, and don’t want to run to the store, simply replace it with olive oil.

1/2 cup of peanut butter (creamy)
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil (or olive oil)
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup rolled oat
1 cup oat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together peanut butter, honey, oil and chicken broth. In a separate bowl, combine flours and oatmeal.

2 eggs
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons dry milk
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup oats
2 1/2 cups brown rice flour *
1 teaspoon dried parsley (optional)

Preheat oven to 350

In large bowl, whisk together eggs and pumpkin to smooth. Stir in dry milk, sea salt, and dried parsley (if using, optional). Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with spatula or hands to form a stiff, dry dough.

Turn out onto lightly floured surface (can use the brown rice flour) and if dough is still rough, briefly knead and press to combine.
