Everyone loves a tasty treat from time to time and your pets are no different! However, you may be scratching your head wondering what your cat or dog can eat. That’s why we’ve put together some pet friendly recipes for them to enjoy.

Following these pet friendly recipes will ensure that you are giving your pet a nutritious tasty treat. You can tailor all the ingredients to your pets dietary requirements.

Homemade Biscuits

Your dog has no need to be jealous of these tasty biscuits, because they’re pooch-friendly!

To make them you will need:

  • 256g of flour
  • 125g of peanut butter (make sure it’s Xylitol-free!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 60ml water

First combine the flour, eggs and peanut butter. Then add the water and mix together until the mixture has turned to dough.

Next roll the dough out on a bed of flour and knead until it no longer sticks. You can then proceed to start cutting shapes of your choice with a cookie cutter or a knife.

Once you’ve cut out all your shapes, placing the cuttings in the oven for 20 minutes at 175℃.  

Bake until they are browned and leave the biscuits to cool until they’re dry, crisp and ready to eat!
