Some dog owners feed sardines a few times per week, but combining them with celery and parsley can create a powerful “triple threat” effect.
Celery and parsley bring a couple of wonderful hormetic compounds into the mix: luteolin and apigenin.
Luteolin has been shown to counter chronic inflammation by decreasing the activity of genes involved in inflammation.
Apigenin is a flavonoid that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory functions and has been widely investigated for its anti cancer effects.

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.

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
