15 Homemade Dog Biscuit Recipes

A conglomeration of recipes collected from clients and the internet over the decades. . .

Homemade Dog Biscuits can be modified by adding those ingredients your pet is not allergic to. The flours can be intermingled and you can use organic ingredients. This may be a good way to incorporate some herbal preparations your naturopath recommends as well! Store in the freezer or make sure they are good and dry so they don’t grow mold.

Notes on making Homemade Dog Biscuits:

  • When you have a choice, use organic (especially with flour and butter)
  • Use meats and broths that are best for your dog and its health concerns–dilute the broth so that it’s not as salty
  • Consult the Eat Right 4 Your Dog’s Blood type handout if you are seeing to make treats without the help of a holistic veterinarian https://naturalhealthtechniques.com/blood_type_diet_for_dogs/
  • Use bacon grease as the fat if you have a dog with epilepsy. Over the years I have had numerous clients be able to control seizures naturally without the need of medication with this basic addition to the diet (about 1/4 tea/day for little dogs and 1/2 tea/day for larger dogs) but it has to be given every day. https://naturalhealthtechniques.com/epilepsy-and-seizures/
  • I know Peanut butter is cheap, but Almond butter may be a better choice if your dog has allergies. There are too many molds in peanuts. https://www.vetinfo.com/peanut-allergies-in-dogs.html
  • You may want to substitute and appropriate flour for the wheat flours when making homemade diets and dog biscuits
  • Sometimes you can sneak in kelp and supplements into the dog biscuits but you should then figure out what the daily dosage would be for the minimum/maximum contained in each dog biscuit.
