Hey Everypawdy; it’s Dog Biscuit Day (23rd February). Have the girls and I have got another great tasting treat for you. Although this treat cannot be classified as a biscuit in the true sense of word, for the purposes of this post it is. A biscuit is a flour based baked good, now my treats are neither flour based or baked. However; they were quick, easy to make and extra yummy as they are made with peanut butter.
Oats are high in protein, fat and fibre. They provide a good balance of amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Oats are also a great alternative to flour if your dogs have an intolerance to gluten. Additionally; currently oats do not undergo and genetic engineering or modification.
Peanut butter is a great treat for dogs, in moderation only. When choosing a brand please ensure that that you use one WITHOUT XYLITOL. As this is what is toxic to dogs; commonly found in mints, chewing gum and peanut butter.
Cinnamon; a non toxic tree has many perceived health benefits. The perceived benefits include; increased brain function, decrease in diabetes, decreases the risk of yeast infections. Cinnamon is an anti-inflammatory so this could be used to alleviate the symptoms of Arthritis. Additionally, the tree has anti-bacterial properties so food stays fresh for longer when it contains cinnamon.
