Cheesy biscuits for dogs

July 9, 2012 § 6 Comments

We make our own dog treats…we’ve done this since Otis was a puppy, after his vet told us to make sure that he ingested absolutely no salt.  Otis had been experiencing off and on digestive problems, and the vet suspected that it might be due to the salt contained in the storebought treats we were giving him.  Although salt can be toxic to dogs, most manufacturers continue to use it in their dog treats because it acts as a preservative.

Because we found it to be virtually impossible to find dog biscuits without salt as an ingredient, we decided to make our own treats.  Not only are our homemade treats salt-free, but the dogs love them more than the off-the-shelf treats.  They’re very healthy, too.

Cheesy biscuits for dogs

2 cups brown rice flour

1 cup rolled oats, uncooked

1 ½ cups grated cheese (Cheddar, mozzarella, or a combination)

1 egg, beaten

1 ½ cups chicken broth (unseasoned, and unsalted) or water

Mix together ingredients, using your hands to make sure that ingredients are well-incorporated.  Roll into 1” balls and place on a greased cookie sheet.  Flatten the balls slightly with the bottom of a water-moistened glass.  Bake in a preheated 350-degree Fahrenheit oven for 25 minutes.  Turn off oven, and leave the biscuits in the oven until they are completely cool.  Remove from oven, and store in a plastic bag.
