These Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Dog Ball Treats will make your doggies crazy. They are soft, require simple ingredients, healthy and so tasty.
I love making healthy treats for my furry babies. Since they are crazy about peanut butter, I always include some PB in their treats. Dogs are like toddlers, sometimes you have to hide healthy ingredients into their food. Some of my babies are picky eaters so peanut butter is always included to encourage them to eat.
Among our tribe of thirteen rescued pets, we have 5 dogs. They are all different ages, including; 3 seniors, 1 adult and 1 puppy. Two of our senior dogs lost almost all of their teeth so I rather make them homemade treats to make sure they don’t hurt their gums when eating.
We had a picnic in our backyard and we enjoyed delicious and healthy food. I include their treats and some strawberries to share with them. From all these fruits I never feed my dogs citrus or grapes because it can harm them.
For making these treats you only need; organic pumpkin purée, peanut butter (make sure it doesn’t contain any sugar), Oats, honey, and cinnamon. I infused these treats with Dog Hemp Oil because it’s so beneficial for them. Hemp oil helps them with:
- Anxiety and Stress
- Arthritis and Joint Pain
- Immune System
- Digestive System
Another health benefits of these treats are in the pumpkin. Pumpkin is very nutritious for your dogs. It helps them with:
- Healthy Stools
- Healthy Coat
- Joint Health
- Urine Health
The rest of the ingredients are also beneficial and rich in protein and minerals that are great for your dogs. Don’t forget to always consult with your veterinarian about what’s best for your pets. My dogs don’t have any allergies, but each dog is unique, and I always recommend consulting with your vet.
