Simple Dog Biscuits

I wish my dog could talk…do you?  It’s so sad that when animals are sick, they can’t tell you what’s hurting.  I know when my dog Chance is not feeling well, even when he looks & acts fine…I guess it’s that “mother’s intuition” I’ve always heard of.  All last week I knew something wasn’t exactly right with him.  Took my boy to the vet & he had a GI infection…poor thing!  :-(

Simple Homemade Dog Biscuits

So I made him this very simple dog treat when we got home.  This doggy treat doesn’t have a lot of “stuff” in it, which was good for his sensitive stomach.  Chance LOVED them!

This recipe only has 4 ingredients, & I’m sure you probably have them all:  all purpose flour, eggs, garlic powder & water.

Preparing Simple Dog Biscuits

Form a dough in a large bowl.  Place on a surface dusted with flour (so it doesn’t stick) & roll dough with a rolling pin until it’s about 1/4 inch thick.  Use a cookie cutter to cut into shapes.  You can also use a knife & cut into little strips if you don’t have a cookie cutter.  I don’t think your dog will mind what shape they’re in!

I place wax paper or parchment paper on my counter & dust with flour so I don’t make as much of a mess :-| .

Simple Dog Biscuits

Place the biscuits onto a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until they’re lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack & store in an air-tight container.

I used a cookie cutter that was around 2 1/2 x 1 inch & this recipe yielded 40 treats.  Of course I shared with Chance’s doggy friends.  :-)

The medicine made him sleepy!  By the way, Chance is feeling much better :-) .

Simple Dog Biscuits

NOTE: It has come to my attention that there is debate regarding if garlic is safe for dogs. I have read that in minute amounts, garlic is not toxic for dogs. I have fed my dog very small amounts of garlic without issues. However, I am NOT a veterinary professional and recommend you consult your veterinarian before feeding your dog any type of homemade treats or food.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all purpose flour & additional flour for dusting surface
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Approximately 1/3 cup water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, forming a stiff dough with your hands. Add more water if necessary.
  3. Dust surface with flour. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough about 1/4 inch thick. Using a cookie cutter, cut into shapes (or use a knife to cut into small strips).
  4. Place onto baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until lightly browned on bottom (tops of treats will not be as browned).
  5. Cool on a wire rack & store in an airtight container.
