Woof! Woof! What a great idea!!!
Flaxseeds are the seeds of an annual plant. It is used for both textile fiber and nutrition. From our research, flaxseeds are considered by many to be healthy and have significant benefits for a dog’s fiber/antioxidants consumption, skin/coat, cardiovascular, treatment for constipation and is used to prevent cancer. Many vets recommend the addition of ground/oil flaxseed to a dog’s regular food for it’s benefits, and also because heavier stools will help evacuate the dog’s anal sacs, preventing impaction. As always, we recommend that you consult with your veterinarian before giving your dog flaxseed.
We have received many emails asking if it is possible to make dog treats with no eggs and oil. Absolutely … you just have to make proper adjustments with the ingredients particularly the amount of flour and water you’ll be adding. Also, make a point that you include an ingredient that contains water. In this recipe, apple is included which contains 80%-85% of water. Here’s the recipe which makes 30 large dog bones. Enjoy!
