National Cherry Month & Your Dog

Did you know that February is National Cherry Month? I sure didn't. But upon further exploration I discovered a world of valuable attributes to this little berry. So, what does this mean for your dog?

Tart cherries may help relief symptoms of arthritis and aid in heart health. It may be a small berry, but it is loaded with wholesomeness. Do you want to know what else this little super fruit has to offer? Read more about cherries and try a recipe for a cherry dog treat.

Cherry Oatmeal Muffin Recipe

After learning all the benefits of cherries, I just had to make a cherry dog treat recipe. I would love to hear your reviews and see your pictures of this recipe. Be sure to add your thoughts and opinions at the bottom of the recipe.

Ask the Chef

Whether you are new to making homemade dog treats, or you are an old pro, sometimes questions arise. That's where our new feature Ask the Chef comes in handy. Review the current questions and answers, then ask your question. You can even answer a question by leaving comments. Here's an example of what you'll see......

Q - Do You Know of Dog Treat Recipes made from Dog Food?

My dog has recently undergone surgery for bladder stones. The vet had placed him on a Hills CD diet exclusively, which means nothing else but. She mentioned that it might be possible to make treats for my dog from the Hills canned CD dog food, so that my dog doesn't feel left out with the others (we have 3 Jack Russell Terriers). Would you know of, or where I could find, a recipe of this kind? Many thanks.

A - First let me wish a speedy recovery to your dog. There are several different options you can use to make homemade dog food treats from the prescribed diet. Here are some ideas and information on dog food treats to get you started.

Do you have a question, need help with a recipe or have other concerns about making treats? Ask the Chef! I look forward to hearing from you and helping in any way I can.

Are you and your dog hungry for more? Let me know what you would like to see on the Dog Treat
