A healthy dog is a beautiful dog! As dogs age their skin and coat can become dry and brittle. One way to add moisture and shine to your dogs coat is flax-seed and oils, which serve as a great source of omega 3 fatty acids, fiber and anti-oxidants. Fatty acids, an essential ingredient to any pets diet, help to improve the texture of his coat, making for fuller, shinier hair. Healthy skin and a healthy coat are not only beautiful to look at and to pet, but also give a good indication of your dog’s internal health.
Often time a dull coat can be a sign of other skin deep health problems like a weakened immune system. Flax-seed not only makes the coat shiny, it has positive benefits on the overall health and well being of your dog. By adding Flax-seed to your dog’s diet you can improve your dogs immune system and cardiovascular health. As well as prevent and treat inflammatory disease (arthritis), heart disease, cancer, allergies and coat issues. Here is a recipe that will ensure your dog has a healthy shiny coat. This Shiny Coat Dog Treat Recipe is not only healthy for your dog but taste good!
1 cup organic whole wheat flour (substitute with gluten free option such as rice flour or buckwheat)
1/4 teaspoon of salt
4 1/2 tablespoons flaxseed meal (substitute with salmon oil and cod liver oil)
1 organic egg
1 tablespoon of local honey
1/3 cup of organic beef or chicken stock
Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a baking sheet with butter or a little oil.
In a bowl, mix together the flour, salt, and flaxseed meal. In another bowl combine the egg and honey.
Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture and add stock until the dough has the consistency of drop biscuits.
Drop heaping tablespoons of the dough onto the baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between the biscuits.
