No Bake Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Bliss Balls

No Bake Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Bliss Balls

These Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Dog Ball Treats will make your doggies crazy. They are soft, requires 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.

Our Lola is 13 years old and she loves homemade treats

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 Join Pain
  • Immune System
  • Inflammation
  • Digestive System
  • Cancer
  • Seizures

Another health benefits from these treats are in the pumpkin. Pumpkin is very nutritious for your dogs. It helps them with:

  • Digestion
  • 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 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.

Here’s the recipe for these treats:

Peanut Butter Banana Strawberry Pupsicle

Peanut Butter Banana Strawberry Pupsicle

It’s almost summer and you can feel the heat when going outdoors. These pupsicles will help your doggies to beat the heat. Plus they’re super heathy and you can eat them too. They are made with just three ingredients; peanut butter, bananas and strawberries. I topped them with blueberries but that’s optional. Even though I totally recommend it because blueberries are packed with antioxidants that are so beneficial for them.  Make sure the Peanut Butter that you use it’s natural and no sugar added, stevia or any other sweetener can harm your dog.

I’ve been rescuing and adopting animals since I was five years old. Sometimes if I found a homeless pet on the streets when I lived in Puerto Rico, I used to take them with me and hide them in my closet from my parents. Yes, my mom knew it but I didn’t want to get in trouble. I learned a lot from those experiences. In Puerto Rico there’s more than 300, 000 abandoned dogs and 1,000,00 cats around the island. The government doesn’t care about it, leaving the animal rescuers and non-profit organizations on their own. 

On the left side is Kathy, our 16 years old Puerto Rican Lab Mix. She was wondering the streets when I rescued her. She was just a baby and very neglected. Frida was born on the streets of Toa Baja, Puerto Rico and we rescued her and now she’s living a great live here in New Hampshire.

The situation is really sad and heartbreaking. After hurricane Maria a lot of people abandoned the island and left their pets on the streets adding to the population of unowned animals. The Humane Society of the United State responded to this crisis by establishing SpayathonTM for Puerto Rico, a coalition of 28 national and international groups coming together for the first time to spay, neuter and vaccinate at least 85,000 dogs and cats across the island.  The Spayathon was founded on a historic agreement signed between the Humane Society of the United States, the Puerto Rico government, the Veterinary Association and the Veterinary Board, allowing teams of high-quality, high-volume spay/neuter veterinarians to practice on the island for the first time ever, assembling the largest coalition dedicated to mass spay/neuter efforts.

I don’t have ownership of this video just sharing from The Humane Society Youtube to create awareness.

Three local veterinarians of Puerto Rico sued the government for allowing these allegedly illegal Spayathon, stating that the Vets were not properly licensed. On June 5th, 2020 the judgement was released whereas these individuals, the veterinarians, won the case. Spayathon is a valuable and much needed program in Puerto Rico. Without it our chaotic situation with abandoned animals will only get worse. Please sign the petition and help bring back the Spayathon. Here’s the link
