You can make your own healthy dog treat recipes that are good for your dogs teeth. This recipe is packed with calcium rich tofu, omega filled ground flax and breath freshening parsley and fresh mint.
Using tofu in a baked dog treat had never even occurred to me. But, once I learned that tofu contains 77% of a persons daily value of calcium, and milk only contains 14%, I knew tofu was needed to make a healthy dog treat for dental care. Also, calcium is needed to help build strong and healthy teeth and is a must to keep our dogs happy and healthy.
But calcium isn't the only ingredient that makes this a healthy dog treat recipe. We've added a heaping helping of dried parsley, fresh mint and wheatgrass powder.
You probably know about the breath freshening abilities of parsley and mint. We even have a couple homemade dog treats that feature these ingredients. Don't miss these two fun recipes, our Parsley Pucker-Up's and the Mint Kiss Dog Cookies.
But we've added not only parsley and mint to these dog treats, but wheatgrass powder, too. The powder does much more than give the treats a fun green color. Because of the chlorophyll, it can also help to deodorize bad breath.
Not to be forgotten, we've added ground flax for the healthy omega 3's and peanut butter for an added savory and delicious taste.
Storing - This healthy dog treat recipe should stay fresh in the fridge for about one month. Keep them fresh in the freezer for up to 6 months.
Yield - Rolling the dough out to 1/2 inch thickness and then cutting squares that are approximately 1 inch by 1 inch, you will yield at least 60 pieces.
Making your own healthy dog treat recipes is a great way to ensure your dog is getting needed nutrition for healthy teeth.
