With people becoming more and more aware of the benefits of eating healthy and living right, it was only natural that people should also start ensuring that they fed the right kind of food to their pets too. It was something that was bound to happen, we are getting wiser and more aware that we need the best kind of nourishment for ourselves and our pets too. Just like it is safer for us to avoid preservatives and sub-standard additives in our foods, the same way it is far safer for dogs too.

By feeding our loved pets healthy homemade dog biscuits we can ensure that they are being fed safe and healthy food. We can ensure that they are eating fresh, organic and preservative free dog biscuits. Did you know that the preservatives found in store bought dog biscuits can actually make your dog aggressive besides harming its health? Dogs fed with homemade food and biscuits eat well balanced meals, their coats are shiny, they are happy and healthy and they will maintain better weight.

Obesity is a huge problem not only for humans but for dogs as well. Commercial dog food is high in fats and sugars. The healthy option is to give your dog homemade biscuits and food. Healthy and organic homemade dog foods can help keep your dogs free of fleas and ticks, and not as prone to ear and skin infections. Healthy homemade dog biscuits is a holistic way of treating dogs. Your visits to the vet will be infrequent, bringing your pet expense drastically down.

My son wanted to eat everything our pets would eat, and this really worried me. So I started making dog biscuits at home. There are surprisingly easy to make recipes on the internet. One recipe which I use is given below:

Healhty Dog Biscuit Recipe

Take two cups of whole wheat flour and mix in ½ cup or corn meal or oat meal.
Add 1 teaspoon of salt (you can use sea salt or iodized)
add small bits of liver
1 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 cup of smooth peanut butter.

Mix in 2 large eggs and ¼ cup of beef or chicken broth. First mix in all the dry ingredients, then add oil and peanut butter, most of the egg (keep a bit aside). If you find the dough dry, add a bit more of the broth. Let the dough rest for at least an hour. Roll it out till it is about ½ inch thick, cut into biscuit shapes. If you have a big dog, cut larger biscuits. Glaze with the remaining egg mixture and bake in an oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Turn off the oven and let the biscuits sit there to dry out some more. Remove after an hour and store in an air tight container or a plastic bag. Dogs love this, and even though I hate to admit it, so does my son!
