5 Heart Healthy Dog Treat Recipes
Everywhere you look, love is in the air. February is the perfect time to show a little extra care to your four-legged true love. Pick one of our 5 heart healthy dog treat recipes to make this month.
Cheesy Flax Squares - Three simple ingredients make this an easy, healthy and delicious treat that is good for your dogs heart.
Salmon Cakes for Dogs - Most of us know that salmon is good for us because of all the Omega -3s they contain. But, your dog can benefit from salmon, too. Use gluten free bread crumbs for a gluten free dog treat.
Spinach & Carrot Dog Cookies - These little cookies pack a flavorful and healthy punch with two key ingredients. Spinach and oatmeal have shown to improve the health of the heart. Don't worry if your dog has never tried spinach before. This recipe also has Parmesan cheese and carrots, two things most dogs love.
Gluten & Grain Free Collard Greens Treats - Baking dog treats with collard greens was a first for me, but the response was overwhelmingly positive. You could also substitute the collard greens for kale, another heart healthy veggie. The molasses guarantees a happy puppy as most dogs love a sweet treat.
Blueberry & Oats Soft Dog Treats - Last but not least, a sweet dog treat with blueberries, a heart healthy fruit. Use fresh blueberries when they're in season, or frozen will work too.

Last month we suggested saving a little each month for unexpected Vet bills. We got a lovely response from Elizabeth:
"Here is my fur baby, Pippa a shih tsu poodle cross, nearly 4 years old. She gets $5 to spend every week, to pay for her own vet bills etc. She is very good at saving it!!"
What a great idea, give your dog an "allowance" each week. Some can be spent on toys and the rest saved for check ups. :)
We also received a nice note from Carolyn. What a wonderful reminder that not everyone is dealing with a cold winter. :)
"This is Maggie May. She loves sitting in the backyard. We are having a very hot summer here in Sydney and she likes to move beds between the sun and the shade under her umbrella. She has a little blue pool that she can also use to take a quick dip when it gets too hot. Love your website and your recipes."
Thank you ladies for sharing your fur-babies with us. They look very well loved and taken care of.
Share pictures of your four-legged family member and get featured in next months newsletter. :)
We get lots of feedback from our website visitors, just like you. Here's what some of them are saying . . .
"Well, this is the easiest cookie recipe ever! I have made several batches of this, both with and without wheat flour (oat flour is m7y preferred alternative). My dog sits in the kitchen waiting for them to come out of the oven! Many of our doggy friends got some of these cookies for the holiday, and they shipped well, too."
