Vegan dog biscuit/treat recipes

Found this in a dog cookie cookbook my inlaws bought me for christmas. Not sure there's an area for doggie recipies in the recipe area..so here ya go!

1 c finely crushed dried bread crumbs
1 c unbleached whole wheat flour
1 c bulgar wheat
1/4 c soy milk
1 1/2 tsp brewers yeast
1 cup vegetable stock

1. Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly grease or use parchment paper to line 2 cookie sheets or baking trays

2.in large bowl using fork or wire whisk blend the bread crumbs, flour, wheat, soy milk and yeast.

3. using a fork make an indentation in the center of the dry mix and add 1 cup of stock.

4. using a large spoon, spatula or your hands blend together until the mixture pulls away from the sides of the bowl and forms a soft dough. If the mixture seems dry, add a little stock one tbsp at a time.

5. turn the dough onto a lightly floured flat surface, and using a rolling pin roll out 1/4 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out as many cookies as you can, reworking the scraps as you go. The dough will become stiff as it's reworked.

6. place cookies side by side on cookie sheets. bake for 20-25 mins or until the cookeis appear very dry and the edges are a light golden brown. remove trays from oven and cool to room temperature. turn off oven.

7. when cookies have cooled completely, put all of them on a single baking tray and return to the cooling oven. Leave undisturbed without opening oven door for 8 to 16 hours (this dries them out and allows for long term storage)

makes approx 98 cookies.

I would caution anyone against giving dogs any type of "fillers" or any protein that comes from soy. Those are all really unhealthy things when it comes to dogs (or cats). One of the biggest issues people have with their domestic pets is bad skin and/or allergies ... all of which can be traced to things like corn and other fillers. When it comes to pets, all those fillers are common allergens. Corn is number 1.

And there is no mistake about it ... dogs are not omnivores. They are carnivores, their bodies designed in a way that is most efficient and works best when eating meat. Just because they'll eat grains and other fillers (let's face it, they will also eat poop), doesn't mean it's good for them. ;)

But, if you want a veggie treat to give to your dog, frozen greenbeans are harmless and low calorie. Of course, ice cubes also make fun, great treats. Plus it's fun watching dogs and ice cubes.

I made dinkfeet's recipe!  both my dog's loved them!  FYI - yeah, they smell really good, but no, they don't taste as good as they smell (for humans ::))

i wouldnt think that bran flakes would be bad...but i would watch out for the drastic change in any foods we give our dogs b/c of digestive "issues".
but cheerios, or the more natural like O cereal is low in sugar and basically whole grains, so i would think they wouldnt be too bad either. maybe a combo?

One of my dogs was chunky and he never seems to be full so I add bran flakes to his diet to help him feel full and he does fine with them.

Thank you for hunting those down! I'm going to merge these two threads, since they're so similar.

Here's a super simple recipe that my dog (and cat sometimes) loves.

2 cups untoasted wheat germ
3 jars vegetable baby food (whatever flavor you think they'll like)

Mix the wheat germ and baby food in a bowl.  You might need to add a little water or a little more wheat germ.  You want a dough-like consistency, something that will bind together.  Roll into balls and place on a baking sheet.  Dip a fork into some water and flatten the balls down.  Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until the bottoms begin to brown.  Cool completely and keep them stored in the refrigerator.

Wow, that is interesting. I would have never thought about feeding a dog baby food! I will have to try this one soon, too!  :) Thanks!  8)

this is dinkfeet's creation... it sounded so good i wished i had a dog:

1 cup cheerios (or cornflakes if your dog's allergic to wheat)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350.

Spray non-stick spray onto a baking sheet.

Put the oats in a blender/food processor and give it a whirl for 10-15 seconds. Add the cheerios and do the same so it's all crumbly. Mix the crumble mixture in a bowl with the pumpkin and peanut butter until it's sticky but not goopy.

Dump the mix onto a piece of wax paper and put a second piece of wax paper on top - now squish flat! Roll if you like. Peel off the top piece of wax paper and plop the large, flat mixture onto the baking sheet. Use a pizza cutter to cut it into a bunch of inch-square pieces and then spread them out a bit so they're not touching.

Bake for 15 min, cool, then feed to your four-legged friend to show her/him you care!

I made these just a little bit ago for my dog who just got out of surgery.  :) I will tell you all how she likes them soon.  8)

I hate to say this, but Sadie didn't go for the biscuits. I even shaped them like bones. Oh, well. I 'm still on the lookout.  ::)

Listen to your dog...I have a collie that gets sick if w feed him anything with animal protein. So both my dogs are Vegan. If you want to replace milk in a recipe, consider what the milk is doing....if it is the protein in the recipe, substitute another powdered protein.

The thing to remember is moderation. don't give too much of any one thing. Soy can be a great source of protein for dogs if it is not the only source. My dogs love beans as a source of protein.

I read that garlic is bad for dogs and cats. It apparently can damage their blood cells. :o
