Anti Aging Treats for Dogs

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

These three frozen treats are super-easy to make, and they’ve received two paws up from our own dog, and the furry taste testers so far. I thought this was a good time to put them in a newsletter, so you could always access them easily. Keep in mind that while they’re fun to make and cute to look at, they actually serve a really good purpose from a nutritional standpoint. Each one provides a bonus for your dog’s health.

 

 

7 oz canned sockeye salmon with skin and bones, drained 

1/4 cup plain yogurt

4-8 raw spinach leaves (for somelutein and zeaxanthin for eye health)

1/4 cup fresh, or frozen blueberries (anthocyanin antioxidants)

1/8 tsp raw, grated ginger, or less dry ginger (optional)

 

 

Mix all ingredients in food processor. Stuff Kongs, freeze in Kongs and/or ice cube trays.
