I always buy those green dog biscuits that are supposed to freshen the dog’s breath and be good for their teeth; my Siberian Husky won’t eat them. She turns their noses away when offered one of those expensive biscuits. She’s not a picky eater, but there was something about those treats that she just doesn’t like.
I started making these breath freshener treats. They are so easy to make, the pup loves them, and they’re healthy too! An added bonus is that they’re very inexpensive, specially if you have a herb garden and use your homegrown parsley.
2 cups fresh parsley – finely chopped
2 bottles (4 oz. each) Strained Green Bean baby food
2 cups organic flour
1 cup flax seed meal
water if needed
Mix all ingredients together. I use my hands to mix the dough until it holds together as a ball. Add 1 tbls. of water at a time if dough is too crumbly until it is stiff enough to form a ball.
Roll dough out on lightly floured surface to 1/2″ thickness.
Cut into desired shapes using a cookie cutter, pizza wheel (for squares), or inverted glass (for circles).
Place on parchment covered baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Cool and store in airtight container.
