Healthy Homemade Banana Pumpkin Dog Treats

Pumpkin Banana Dog Treats - Pook's Pantry
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!

Please support local farms!

 
Scout out something you’ve never had before and try it, although I wouldn’t necessarily suggest doing so on a day when you are cooking for a house full of people…
