1. Regular treats for healthy dogs.
2. Pill Pockets – because they’re stinky, they can make hiding pills easier.
3. Treats for dogs with cancer (although, we recommend fresh sardines vs canned sardines for dogs with mast cell tumors due to the higher histamine content in canned fish).
- 2 cans sardines with bones, packed in water, drained (170 grams drained weight)
- 2 TBS finely chopped raw broccoli
- 1 large egg, beaten

Beef liver is sometimes included in the diets we formulate. Although it contains other nutrients, beef liver is a very rich source of copper, so not much has to be fed in order to meet a dog’s copper requirement.
Here’s an easy way to have the right amount of beef liver ready at all times. Use it as a treat, or mix in food. The broth can be used as an addition to food, or for a warm, liquid snack.

Ok, so they’re not from Italy. In fact, my dog thinks these are from heaven. She lies on the kitchen floor and waits patiently until they’re in the oven. Then she moves over to sit in front of the oven and stares as if an invisible hand might make them disappear.
I use organic brown rice flour, but you can use another type of flour if you prefer. Keep in mind that rice flour is soft while whole wheat flour, for example, is hard. That means you’d probably need to use less of the latter.
Notice the oregano in the recipe. It adds flavor, but it also happens to be an herb with antibacterial properties. Does it really help to use a pinch within cookies? I don’t know, but it doesn’t hurt and I like to add herbs when possible. They can provide so many wonderful benefits. Oregano has a very strong flavor. You don’t want to overdo it and end up with cookies that make your dog’s mouth tingle. Read more Italian Cookies for Dogs
