Easy Dog Treat Recipes - The Healthy Route

Feeling lazy?  Easy dog treat recipes are those that either take less than 20 minutes to make or have very few ingredients to pull together.

Before preparing these recipes, please review Dog Organic Treat Choices along with the general feeding guidelines.  Easy dog treat recipes combined with all other treats should make up no more than 10% of your dog's total diet.

Always consult with your holistic veterinarian before feeding your dog any new recipe.

    Another Prodigy member made these substituting cream of Wheat for wheat germ and then used tablespoon to make cookie sized drops on plate.

    Microwaved for 4 minutes on Medium High. Suggested keeping an eye on them in microwave and perhaps start out for only 3 1/2 minutes. They do come out soft.

    Also suggested using Beef/Vegetable Dinner Baby Dinner instead of Beef or Chicken.
