My dog is spoiled, but I’m guessing yours is too. Healthy, homemade banana pumpkin dog treats are quick and easy to make, plus they only have four ingredients! For less than $5, you can make approximately 100 treats, which is a much better deal than store bought.
Our pets are like family. We do everything we can for them, right? Which is why I make treats for her instead of buying them when I have the time. Sugar has always had a very sensitive stomach and sometimes store bought foods/treats have given her tummy issues. For example, when she was a puppy I went through NINE different dog foods before I found one that didn’t make her sick. Eventually, the vet suggested that I cook vegetables for her and mix them with her dog food. Sugar has been on this diet for a few years now with no issues, so I’m quite happy. She eats what we eat most of the time, so it’s not really any extra work. Chicken, broccoli, cucumbers, sweet potatoes, apples, bananas, etc. She eats better than some of my friends!
Now that the “dog days” of summer are over, I find myself baking treats for my canine companion. She loves sweet potatoes almost more than any other thing on earth, so it was essential to incorporate them into her treats.
For those of us that love our pets like we gave birth to them, making something special for them is not out of the ordinary… but for those of you that may not be pet-lovers I suppose it may seem a bit odd.
Our dog Cleo used to love these treats when my Mom would make them for her, so she sent me the recipe so I could make them for my little one. They are pretty quick to get together and not complicated at all, so the whole process is pretty painless.
Considering all of the unconditional love they give us and never ask for anything in return, making our beloved pets a special treat every now and then is a pretty good trade-off.
