Weekly Drool Recipe: Tender Tummy Biscuits

Tender Tummy BiscuitsYou don’t have to be an accomplished baker to create a homemade batch of dog treats. The secret ingredient is a little bit of love sprinkled in! Whether or not you are an avid baker or its your first time getting your hands messy in the kitchen these Tender Tummy Biscuits are easy and simple to bake & master. Best part is that this recipe is tasty and doggy approved! We hope this recipe will inspire you to get in the kitchen with Fido. Bone Appetit!

Ingredients

1 cup brewed chamomile tea
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup cooked white rice
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 cup chicken, skinned, boiled, and chopped to 1/2-inch cubes

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

2. Brew a cup of chamomile tea, and allow it to cool to room temperature. (It’s never a good idea to use hot liquids when mixing dough.)

3. Place the flours, rice, and parsley in a large bowl, using your hands or a wire whisk to gently mix the dry ingredients.

4. Add the cottage cheese and brewed tea to the dry ingredients, stirring with a sturdy spoon until the dough becomes pliable. Add the diced chicken cubes and stir until they are evenly mixed into the dough, taking care not to over mix.

5. Place the dough on a floured surface and roll out or pat down to a thickness of 1/2 inch. Using a pizza cutter, make horizontal and vertical slices through the dough to form cube shapes. The size of the cubes will be determined by the size of your dog’s jaw.

6. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet or pan covered with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown.

Tip:

Here are a couple of things to keep in mind when working with meat:

1. Always add the diced chicken to the dough last so that you don’t puree the pieces during the mixing and makeup process;
2. Don’t forget to store the finished biscuits in the refrigerator or freezer until your pet has finished them off.

Chamomile This flower has long been celebrated for its soothing properties. It’s thought to calm upset stomachs and promote drowsiness. In fact, chamomile tea is sometimes called nighty-night tea or sleepy tea because of its sleep-inducing ability. Experts say chamomile tea can also boost the immune system and fight infections associated with colds.

Hazardous To Your Pets Health : 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 124

Hazardous To Your Pets HealthLet’s face it pets play a huge role in our lives and are honorary furry family members who we love to spoil. Just as parents child proof their homes, so should pet parents. Like infants and little children, pets are curious by nature. Dogs and cats love to explore and investigate their environment using their paws, claws and mouth. Unfortunately, pets don’t always intuitively know what can be potentially harmful to eat, drink or chew. So it is up to us as loving pet owners to get down on all fours for a pets eye view. Seeing the world from our pets point of view will make sure our homes are a safe haven for our adorable furballs to roam and enjoy.

While you can’t prevent any and every danger, you can minimize the possibility of your pet getting hurt or sick by always being aware of their surroundings. Before you can begin to pet proof your home remember that knowledge is power! You need to be aware of dangers that should be avoided and out of paws reach. Our wonderful pet loving friends at the ASPCA have compiled an extensive list of common household items that pose a threat to your pet.

Foods to Avoid Feeding Your Pet

  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Avocado
  • Chocolate (all forms)
  • Coffee (all forms)

  • Liquid potpourri
  • Ice melting products
  • Rat and mouse bait

Common Household Hazards

  • Post-1982 pennies (due to high concentration of zinc)

Holiday Hazards

  • Christmas tree water (may contain fertilizers and bacteria, which, if ingested, can upset the stomach.
  • Electrical cords
  • Ribbons or tinsel (can become lodged in the intestines and cause intestinal obstruction—most often occurs with kittens!)
  • Batteries
  • Glass ornaments

Non-toxic Substances for Dogs and Cats

The following substances are considered to be non-toxic, although they may cause mild gastrointestinal upset in some animals:

  • Water-based paints
  • Toilet bowl water
  • Silica gel
  • Poinsettia
  • Cat litter

We are constantly searching for the best of the best so if you have any feedback or product suggestions please let us know. So here is what’s new on the site and in our wag of the woods!

Introducing Best Bully Sticks Stuffed Gullet Bites

Stuffed Gullet Bites for Dogs These are just like our traditional 12 inch Stuffed Gullets except cut into 1″ to 2″ inch bite-sized pieces! They are available in 1 lb. bags with approximately 65-75 Stuffed Gullet Bites per bag.

Stuffed Gullets are a great bully stick alternative. They are more of a treat than a chew in that they do not last as long as bully sticks. They are still a firm treat and will give any dog something to chew on and enjoy. Gullets are the esophagus (the food pipe) of the bull which is high in Chondroitin (which helps with dogs joint health). As with all of our other products the stuffed gullets are all natural treats!

Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed: We Honor the Vizsla

 VizslaWe always love getting emails from our customers & readers asking us to feature their dog or favorite breed for our Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed blog series every Thursday. As always we are honored to oblige.  Thanks all! We are excited to spotlight the Vizsla.

Height: Male 22-24; Female 21-23 inches

Weight: 45-65 lbs

Coat: The Vizsla breed comes in two coat varieties: the Smooth and Wire. The Smooth is short, dense, close to the body, and shiny. There is no undercoat. The Wire is hard, harsh, and loose fitting. There is no gloss or shine. There is a winter under-coat and the hair is brush-like on the back of the forelegs, head, muzzle, and ears. The Vizsla coat colors range from golden to russet. They are average shedders.

Color: Solid golden rust

Appearance: The Vizsla is a muscular, sleek hunting dog with an attractive short, rust-colored coat. The head of the Vizsla is chiseled and often described as aristocratic, with only a moderate stop. The square muzzle ends in a brown nose and the teeth should meet in a scissors bite. The eyes of the Vizsla are alert and expressive, and should compliment the color of the coat. The ears are pendant with round tips and are long, thin and silky to the touch. The tail is customarily docked to 2/3 length.

Temperament: Vizslas are lovingly referred to as “velcro dogs” because they want to be with the people they love 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This attachment goes back to the Vizsla’s roots as a hunting dog. In the field, he never strayed too far from the hunter, which created a strong bonding experience. Vizslas are the perfect family dog for those who are already committed to an active lifestyle. Hunters can still use them to track and point in the field, and at home Vizslas make superb hiking, biking and jogging companions. They are fairly easy to train, and make a fine addition to active, outdoorsy families. The Vizsla is a versatile gun dog that is able to work in the forest, field, and water. They excel in retrieving, and are capable of covering difficult terrain in extreme weather conditions. The Vizsla has an easygoing nature and is an excellent companion.

The Vizsla is friendly, lively, and affectionate with their family and those they know. They are alert and watchful. They will bark when they sense danger or visitors. They are very reserved with strangers. The Vizsla is very demonstrative, but has a tendency to be willful and distracted. They get along well with older children and in most cases other dogs. They will tolerate cats they are raised with. The Vizsla loves to chew on anything and everything and is not a calm and placid breed. They will become destructive if they are allowed to be bored.

Health: The average lifespan of Vizsla is between 10–14  years. Potential health issues include: Hip dysplasia, Canine Epilepsy, Sebaceous adenitis, hypothyroidism, dwarfism, persistent right aortic arch, tricuspid valve dysplasia, and progressive retinal atrophy. Major risks include epilepsy and lymphosarcoma. Vizslas can also be prone to skin and food allergies.

Weekly Drool Recipe: Homemade Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Treats

Homemade Peanut Butter and Banana Dog TreatsDogs will do anything for a delicious sweet treat! Especially if one of the main ingredients is ooey gooey Peanut Butter. These homemade PB and Banana Dog treats are a true crowd pleaser, easy, quick and healthy treat alternative. Not to mention packed with parsley that helps freshens not so pleasant dog breath.

Makes 2 Dozen

This recipe is easy to tinker with. You can substitute dried mint for half of the parsley, if you like. And don’t hesitate to adjust the size of the treats to accommodate very small or very large dogs, baking them a few minutes less or a few minutes more, as needed. If your dog has challenges chewing, grind the rolled oats in a food processor before adding them to the mixture. Makes approximately two-dozen treats.

Ingredients

1 banana, peeled
1 cup oat flour
2/3 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup dried parsley
3 tablespoons peanut butter
1 egg, beaten

Directions

Preheat oven to 300°F. Put banana in a large bowl and use a spoon or potato masher to mash it thoroughly. Add oat flour, oats, parsley, peanut butter, and egg and stir well to combine. Set aside for 5 minutes.

Roll mixture into 24 balls, using about 1 tablespoon dough for each; transfer to a large parchment paper-lined baking sheet as done. Use the back of a spoon or the heel of your hand to press each ball into a (1 1/2 to 2 inch) coin. Bake until firm and deep golden brown on the bottom, 40 to 45 minutes. Set aside to let cool completely.

Tip: It’s best to store these in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Or, freeze them to give to your pal later; just be sure to thaw the treats before handing them out.

Preparing For Vet Visit: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 122

Preparing For Vet VisitGoing to a vet checkup is an important affair and crucial to your pets overall well being.  Vet appointments give you the opportunity to address any health concerns or questions you may have for your pet. When visiting your vet it’s always best to provide as much history and background as possible on your pet. In doing so you can ensure your vet can provide the best and most proper treatment plan. Being a responsible and loving pet owner means keeping up with vaccinations and vet check-ups. Here are a few tips for first time vet visitors or if you are switching vets.

1. Gather Medical Records. Obtain copies of previous medical records and bring them along or have them faxed to the new vet office. Records should contain proof of immunizations, test results, diagnoses and treatment of illnesses, including medications. Be prepared to discuss your pet’s medical history and don’t hesitate to address any concerns about previous, recurring or ongoing sickness or disorders.

2. Talk Eating Habits. Be ready to discuss your pet’s eating habits including the type of food and brand, how frequently the pet is fed, whether the pet has a good appetite, if the pet has gained or lost weight recently and what your pet’s normal weight seems to be.

3. Discuss Weird Behavior. Let the vet know about any sudden behavior changes such as lethargy, hyperactivity, aggression, growling, vomiting, urinating/defecating in inappropriate places or a change in urination/bowel movement frequency. If your pet has been vomiting, for instance, let the vet know what you have been feeding your pet, especially if there was a change in food. Also note the duration of time in between the meals and the vomiting. If there has been a change in your pet’s lifestyle coinciding with the change in behavior, be sure to tell the vet.

4. Alert Vet of Physical Abnormalities. Report any suspicious growths, lumps or other things that you may have come across in case the vet overlooks it during the exam.

5. Further Testing. Inquire about testing and prevention for various disorders and illnesses that your pet may be at a higher risk of developing.

6. Preventive Measures. Ask what you can do to keep your pet healthy, including tips for home exams, grooming and dental care. Also ask if the vet feels the food or diet you are feeding is a good choice.

Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed: We Honor Chihuahuas Dobby and Ringo

We always love getting emails from our customers & readers asking us to feature their dog or favorite breed for our Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed blog series every Thursday. As always we are honored to oblige.  Thanks Lisa! We are excited to spotlight your adorable Chihuahuas. Everyone say “Hello” by sending out warm barks and tail wags to Dobby and Ringo!

Chihuahua

Adorable Chihuahua's Dobby & Ringo

Height: 6-9  inches

Weight: 2-6 lbs

Coat: There is a long-haired variety of Chihuahua, but the most common variety is the short-haired Chihuahua. Chihuahuas have two coat types, smooth and long. The smooth coat should be soft and close, with a perceptible sheen. Long coats can be flat or wavy, with an undercoat, fringed ears, feathering on the feet and legs, and a tail that looks much like a plume.

Color: Chihuahua coat comes in a variety of colors including fawn, sand, chestnut, silver, and steel blue. They may also be black & tan or tri-color.

Appearance: The Chihuahua is a very small-sized dog with a proportionately robust build and distinctive facial features. Their body is stout and just longer than it is tall, and they have straight limbs. They have a sickle-shaped tail that curls over the dog’s back or off to one side. They have an apple-shaped head with a short, tapered, pointy muzzle. Their large eyes are round, dark, and can sometimes be ruby or luminously-colored. They have large, triangular-shaped, erect ears that are a distinguishing characteristic of this breed. Chihuahua puppies have a soft spot on the top of their skull that closes as they become adults.

Temperament: The Chihuahua is lively, alert, proud, and makes a good companion. They seek and demand affection, and they are very spunky by nature. They are determined, courageous, and they become very attached to their owner(s). They have a jealous streak, and they will follow their owner’s every move if strangers are present. Some Chihuahuas are difficult to train, but they are intelligent and generally learn quickly. Thus are most receptive to gentle training and positive reinforcement. The Chihuahua doesn’t like to be poked, pestered, or teased, and he may snap if a child provokes him. Because of their small size, they will resort to using their teeth if they feel threatened. This breed may often be noisy and difficult to housebreak. All Chihuahuas should be properly socialized to avoid the onset of aggressive behavior.

Health: The average lifespan of this breed is between 15-18 years. There are also a number of health problems to look out for with this breed. Prone to rheumatism, slipped stifle, colds, gum problems, corneal dryness, secondary glaucoma due to protruding eyes, weight gain and susceptible to fractures. Also some Chihuahuas have a molera, an unclosed section of the skull which can remain open throughout life making them prone to injury. They often wheeze and snore because of their small, short muzzles. This breed is also susceptible to stress.
