I need a dog cookie/treat recipe for a diabetic dog
by Darlene Pigman
I make homemade treats with natural ingredients from my farm and many friends have started asking me for these treats. Some have asked for treats for special diets i.e. gluten free. Now I have someone asking for treats for their diabetic dog. Any suggestions?
Chef's Answer ~ My first recommendation is to be cautious. Making treats for dogs with special needs requires an in-depth knowledge of their nutritional needs.
As a high level answer, there are many recipes that will fit your requirements. You'll want to look for dog treat recipes with very little or no sugar. That includes honey and molasses, although these are a more natural form of sugar. You'll also want to look for dog biscuit recipes that are high in fiber (like rolled oats) for lasting energy.
I hope this has helped. Happy Dog Treat Baking! :)
