Carrots and bananas aren’t just healthy for humans. They’re great for fur-babies too! Sweetened up with honey and apple sauce, we think this recipe from PetGuide.com will be a holiday hit with the furry side of the family.
Homemade Turkey and Sweet Potato Meatball Dog Treats
It’s not Thanksgiving without turkey, so why not share some with the mongrel! But before you do, make sure you give your pup skinless turkey, because the fat content in turkey skin might upset sensitive doggie stomachs. Otherwise, turkey is a great, healthy choice for your dog. These meatballs from PetCouponSavings.com mix turkey and sweet potato so your pup gets the full Thanksgiving experience in one bite!
Paws-itively Peanutty Crudites
Busy this Thanksgiving? Of course you are! It’s the holiday season after all. These treats, from Petplan.com, are perfect for on-the-go pet parents because they’re so brilliantly simple and quick to make. Treat your doggie to veggie and fruit d’oeuvers - that is carrots, celery, and apples with a peanut butter spread.
Apple Asiago Dog Treats
Last, but not least, on this list is Apple Asiago Dog treats from Brit+Co.com. This healthy treat includes oatmeal, cheese, applesauce, and more. It’s worth noting that, while rare, some dogs are lactose intolerant, so be cautious about how much you let your fur-baby eat at first. But chances are good this will become a new favorite.
