Mom promised she’ll make these fur me soon, thanks!
We live Wales UK and have 2 dogs. One has just been prescribed Hills s-d food for a bladder stone/crystals. Do you have any recipes for treats that would compliment that food ? It is supposed to change the urine ph to dissolve the stone/crystals
Many thanks for any suggestions
I’m not sure, I don’t really know what exactly dogs with that issue should eat, or avoid. Sorry I was unable to help you. Woof!
one of our dogs is allergic to oatmeal, what can I use in it’s place?
You can leave out the oatmeal and add additional flour until the dough comes together, I hope that helps. Woof!
My dog has issues with a recurring yeast. She needs grain free treats. What can I substitute for the Wheat flour? I am sure she will love the Fruit & Veggie Sticks.
Brown rice flour will work, you may need to add some more pumpkin to make the flour come together. Woof!
Hi, on the Fruit & Veggie sticks, do they have to be refrigerated at all times? & what is the shelf life on them?
The fridge is best because they aren’t baked long enough to get out all of the moisture and they lasted three weeks in my fridge. Woof!
Buckwheat or coconut flour are good substitutes for whole wheat flour if you feed grain free.
Could you change any of the fruit and veggies?
You can Vanessa. If the dough gets too wet, because of a substitution, they may work better as drop cookies.
