Can I use a flour other than wheat flour for homemade dog treats?

by Yasmin

My dog is sensitive to wheat flour so I was wondering if I could use another type of flour. If so which one(s).

Chef's Answer ~ Yes, you can and should use a different kind of flour if your dog is sensitive to wheat. You can substitute one for one any gluten and/or wheat free flour. Most major grocery stores will carry brown rice flour. Or, if you go to a health food store, you'll have many more choices including potato flour, tapioca flour and many more.

I hope this helps you and your dog bake healthy homemade dog treats! :)

Can I use all purpose flour?

Chef's Comments ~ All purpose flour is just bleached wheat flour, so no, that would not be a good flour to use if your dog is sensitive to wheat.
