Cooking Treats For Your Pet

Did you know that earlier this week (November 1st) it was National Cook For Your Pet Day? That means sometime this weekend you should hit the kitchen and make a delicious home-cooked meal or treats just for them. It’s not as hard as it seems either! We have a few pet friendly recipes you can whip up easily.

Here are a few of our favorite recipes:

Beef and Vegetable Balls


  • 2 6-ounce jars of organic beef and vegetable baby food
  • 1 cup of whole-wheat flour (or white substitute)
  • 2 cups of dry milk
  • 1 cup of water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Drop the mixture onto a baking sheet in large spoonfuls.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
  5. Allow to the treats to cool completely. Store leftover beef and vegetable balls in the fridge for up to five days.


Peanut Butter Cookies


  • 2 cups of flour (white or wheat, if your pup has no wheat allergies)
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup of smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon of fish oil
  • 1 1/2 cups of water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix the flour and oats together in a large mixing bowl. Pour in one cup of water and blend until smooth. Add in the peanut butter, honey, and fish oil and mix until all the ingredients are well blended.
  3. Slowly add the water until the mixture has a thick and doughy consistency.
  4. Lightly flour a cooking surface. Roll the dough onto the cooking surface to create a 1/4 inch thick sheet.
  5. Use a cookie cutter to create shapes. Place the cookies onto a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool completely before feeding.


Pumpkin Treats


  • 2 Eggs
  • ½ cup of canned pumpkin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon of dry milk
  • 2 ½ cups of flour (or wheat)
  • Water (as needed to make dough workable)


  1. Preheat oven to 350℉
  2. Blend eggs and pumpkin together. Add salt, dry milk, and flour
  3. Add water as needed, the dough should be dry and stiff
  4. Mix with your hands and not a mixer
  5. Roll out to ½“ thick sheet
  6. Cut into shapes
  7. Place 1” apart on ungreased cookie sheet
  8. Bake for 20 minutes on one side, then turn over and back another 20 minutes.

What’s great about making food for your pet with a recipe is that you know exactly what they are eating. In this day and age, so many additives are in our food; it’s difficult to know what’s healthy or not. Even better, you may find yourself saving money.
