Dog biscuits

Do you ever need to treat that four-legged friend to something more than store brought treats? Then here’s your chance! The seaweed in these is very good for your critters coats, especially if they have a skin condition. I made these for my boyfriends staffy who is a bit prone to getting lil’ harmless cysts (I also put some seaweed in his food from time to time) and his lil’ lumps n bumps have cleared up so he’s back to hisย beautiful self (see below recipe for his lovely face)

homemade vegan dog biscuits
Method:

Preheat the oven to 180c/360f and line two cookie sheets. Whisk together the water, ground flax and seaweed, add in the flour and stir well until you have a really stiff dough, knead it for a few minutes to ensure everything is well mixed (you don’t need to flour the surface it shouldn’t stick). Roll it out to about 1/3 of an inch thick and using a small cookie cutter cut out as many pieces as you can, then transfer to a cookies sheet, space the so they are about 1 mm apart. Re roll the trimmings and continue to cut out shapes until all the dough has been used up. Bake for about 20-30 minutes until the biscuits are dry. Allow to cool fully before packing into an airtight container.

  1. So sweet! Our pup eats vegan dog food and has never been happier! These dog biscuits look fantastic! Just thought I might chime in, I read in my humane society pamphlet that dogs are allergic to members of the allium family, i.e. garlic and onion. Not sure what it does to them, but it’s on their list of things not to give dogs….
