Cat and Dog Treat Recipes

by Ex

Cat Recipe

thought it might be nice to have a few recipes for homemade Cat treats seeing as how quite a few members have cats lol
I had a nightmare finding cornmeal when I first used these recipes and then I discovered that in UK we tend to use Polenta
These treats are not meant to replace cat food and should be fed sparingly. Cats aren’t really supposed to have a lot of grain in their diets, so use accordingly – as treats.
DIY cat treats Make your own cat treats with this cat-tested recipe. You could eat them too, but they taste a little bit weird. I guess that’s why most baked goods don’t call for tuna.
1 can tuna, including water
3/4 cup corn meal
3/4 wheat flour
1/3 cup water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shred up the tuna so that it forms a loose paste. Combine the tuna with the cornmeal, flour, and water. Roll out the mixture into a 1/4 thick sheet. Use a pizza cutter to cut 1/4 strips of dough, then cut the strips into little cubes of dough. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden and delicious. Serve with a garnish.
Store these treats in zip lock bag or airtight container for about a month. They’ll last even longer in the freezer

Dog Recipe

Although this is about dog stuff I have posted it here as it involves cooking these are just a couple of the simpler ones will post a few more later this afternoon when I can find them as at moment they are hiding on a disc somewhere lol
Remember these are treats and should only be given to to dogs occasionally I never allow mine to have more than a couple a day.

A couple of very important points :
CHOCOLATE AND ONIONS ARE HIGHLY TOXIC TO DOGS SO WHEN USING ANY SORT OF PREPARED FOOD I.E. BABY FOOD OR BOUILLON ALWAYS CHECK THE INGREDIENTS FIRST
Cheese Treats
4 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 tsp. garlic powder
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/4 cup shredded cheese
1 1/4 cup milk
Combine flour and garlic powder in a large bowl.
Gradually stir-in vegetable oil, cheese, beaten egg, milk and blend well. Roll-out dough to desired thickness. Cut-out treats and place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 25 minutes at 400°F.
Cool before storing. I tend to freeze them in small bags and just keep a bag at a time in the fridge.
Note: cooking time may vary depending upon thickness
Tuna Treats
• 2 6-oz. cans tuna in water, do not drain
• 2 eggs
• 1 to 1 ½ c. flour (rice flour is best, but any kind will do)
• 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
• parmesan cheese
Mash tuna and water in a bowl with a fork to get clumps out, then liquefy in blender or food processor. Add extra drops of water if needed to liquefy completely. Pour into bowl and add flour and garlic powder; consistency should be like cake mix. Spread into greased or sprayed pan; I find that a round pizza pan or square cake pan is perfect. Sprinkle with LOTS of parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes; edges will pull away and texture will be like putty. Use a pizza cutter and slice into teeny squares. These freeze beautifully.
