Simba has always had a very sensitive stomach. I have to read labels making sure that there is no corn products ( a common filler in most dog foods) or peanut butter. She absolutely loves peanut butter but her tummy hates it and so do I when I have to clean it up. Like her mom, she also loves treats. Buying healthy treats that don’t have a bunch of fillers that sound like scientific alien ingredients can be quite expensive. I found this recipe on http://www.carriesexperimentalkitchen.com/chicken-wild-rice-dog-biscuits/ and wanted to share it with other mom’s that need to watch what their pups eat. Simba loves the Chicken & Wild Rice Treats!

Simba and Gypsy absolutely love these treats. I decided to share them because they have been such a hit with them and I feel no guilt giving them more than one because they are all natural and good for them.
CUT AN APPLE IN CUBES SMALL ENOUGH TO FIT IN AN ICE TRAY. FILL WITH WATER AND FREEZE. MAKE SURE TO PULL OUT ANY SEEDS AS THEY ARE NOT GOOD FOR YOUR POOCH. YOU CAN USE JUST ABOUT ANY KIND OF FRUIT (NO GRAPES OR RAISINS). I USE 3 OUNCE CUPS INSTEAD OF ICE TRAYS AND GIVE THESE TO SIMBA OUTSIDE SO THEY DON’T LEAVE PUDDLES ON MY WOOD FLOORS. IT’S A GREAT WAY TO KEEP HER BUSY WHEN I’M BUSY WITH THE YARD AND SHE WANT TO PLAY BALL. SHE LOVES THEM.
Humans are becoming more and more health conscious. The new healthy lifestyles are also opening our eyes when it comes to our furry best friends. Many pooches suffer from obesity and many other ailments like diabetes, cancer, allergies, etc. It’s no wonder why we are looking for the best healthy dog treats. When it comes to treats, the same rules that apply to humans apply to your pooch. Natural is better than processed. Store bought treats are expensive, full of chemicals, empty calories, and not healthy for you pup. First of all let me start off by saying that most experts will tell you that human food scraps including treat should never account for more than 10% of your dog’s daily calorie intake. Here are some great treats that are very low in calories and you probably already have some in your refrigerator. Many are surprised to find that their furry friends enjoy these treats just as much as the store bought ones.
Watermelon (no seeds)
Apple slices (no seeds) (no raisins, grapes, chocolate, onions can be toxic)
Air popped pop corn w/o salt or butter
Small plain rice cakes or cut them in little pieces
Cooked sweet potato without seasoning
Kale raw and/or cooked
Cooked pumpkin (Plain unseasoned pumpkin is great for the digestive track because it helps with constipation or with loose stools normalizing digestion. I have put a tablespoon of cooked pumpkin on Simba’s food daily since she was a puppy. As you know she suffers from IBS and the pumpkin keeps her steady. As a puppy she suffered from hemorrhoids constantly. The vet suggested giving her the cooked pumpkin and she hasn’t suffered from them since.
Here is recipe I found which is one of Simba’s favorite.
CHICKEN JERKY RECIPE My son used to make jerky in a dehydrator. It would be delicious. He would slice chicken breast or beef round steak as thin as possible. Then he would boil it for a couple of minutes until … Continue reading →
