If you’re looking for a delicious recipe for your dog’s birthday or any other fun celebration, you’re in luck! We have the perfect recipe for you.
In today’s issue of Pet Chef, we present you with a delicious recipe for dogs based on four main ingredients: banana, peanut butter, carrots, and honey.
Uncomplicated, Easy-to-Prepare Dog Treats
This recipe was made only with dog and human-friendly ingredients. However, if your dog is susceptible in any way (elderly, has a chronic illness, etc.), it is important to speak to a veterinarian before making any dietary changes.
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Use a pastry bag to paint fun patterns on your muffins with dog-friendly peanut butter. You can also glue small dog treats on top of the peanut butter to decorate it.
Nutritional advice: Make sure you are using dog-friendly peanut butter, i.e. free from xylitol. For smaller dogs, it’s best to cut the treat into two to four pieces and not feed them all at once. Alternatively, you can use smaller shapes than those used in the video. This is a special occasion treat and shouldn’t be fed every day.
Suitable for cats: Yes (in very small portions to avoid an upset stomach).
