We’re excited and honoured to feature South Africa’s second largest independent animal welfare organisation on PetlifeSA for one year, starting July 2019.
RECIPE: SOFT TREATS FOR OLDER DOGS
A recipe using baby foods that’s perfect for older dogs.
- 1 jar chicken, ham, turkey or beef-flavoured baby food
- 4 teaspoons dry milk powder
- 4 teaspoons dry cream of wheat; Nestum or Cerelac
Veggie or combo treats:
- 1 jar baby food in any flavour your dog likes
- 6 ½ teaspoons dry milk powder
- 6 ½ teaspoons cream of wheat
- Preheat the oven to 180°C.
- Use two large baking trays and line with baking paper.
- In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients together. The batter should be shapeable, not too thin, as long as it will form a ball.
- Allow the mixture to rest at room temperature for about 15 minutes.
- Wet your hands and form small balls and place on baking tray. Use a fork dampened with water and press the balls into a flat disc, about half a centimeter.
- Bake for 15 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool.
- Store the treats in the refrigerator for up to a month or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Different brands of baby food may contain different amounts of water, therefore add little extra and equal amounts of additional dry ingredients if necessary (dry milk powder & dry cream of wheat). Adding too much of the dry ingredients will create harder treats.
* Consult with your veterinarian about any allergies your dog may have.
