Dog and Bowl Hungry

Dogs just love ’em! Instead of a bone shape you could roll out and cut into squares or any shape will do – the dog won’t mind!

INGREDIENTS

2 x 180g cans of tuna in water (not oil!). Do not drain them!
2 eggs
200g flour (rice flour is best, but any will do)
1 tbsp *garlic powder
A generous pinch of Parmesan

METHOD

1           Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F, Gas 4).

2           Mash the tuna and water in a bowl with a fork to break down the clumps, then purée using a hand blender. Add extra water to liquefy the mixture completely if needed.

3           Pour into a bowl and add the flour and garlic powder – the consistency, when mixed, should be like cake mix.

4           Spread the mixture on a greased baking tray and sprinkle with the Parmesan. I find that a round pizza pan is ideal.

5           Bake for 15 minutes till the edges begin to pull away and the texture becomes a little like putty.

6           A pizza cutter is the easiest way to slice this into teeny squares, and they freeze well.

* This recipe contains garlic. Large quantities can cause anaemia in dogs, but these are only small amounts and should in no way be harmful. Dogs seem to like the smell of garlic, which makes the treats more attractive, but it is fine to leave the garlic out.

Garlic and Dogs. All close members of the onion family (shallots, onions, garlic, scallions, etc.) contain compounds that can damage dogs‘ red blood cells if ingested in sufficient quantities. A rule of thumb is “the stronger it is, the more toxic it is.” Garlic tends to be more toxic than onions, on an ounce-for-ounce basis. If in doubt – leave it out.

Please note these are treats, not dog biscuits. Please also read Can I give my Dog Garlic?
