  1. when i make home made cookies and don’t have time to cut out little shapes i take my pizza cutter and simply cut out squares or rectangle cookies to suit the sizes of my dogs. i’ve also cut little treat sized squares to make them into training treats.

    my dogs love them.

    with flea season almost upon us i will be keeping my kitchen stocked with these too.

    thank you.

      Thank you.

      I roll them in little balls and cover with plastic wrap
      and take another cookie sheet smaller than first and push down into disks. Fast and efficient.

  2. does anyone have any experience with their dog eating these cookies? did they like them . .

    .did they keep the fleas away?

  3. i was my puppies in dawn dish soap leave on for 5 minutes then rinse. i also put salt down all over the house once a week and then vacum the salt dehydrates the fleas and kills them. i also make up a solution with 2 parts cider vinegar 1 tbs salt and 1 tbs bakin soda and spray the animals.

    if they get sores from scrating and the fleas you can make up a solution of 9 parts olive oil and 1 part rubbing alcohol it will kill the bactera and heal them in a couple of day. you can also make a spray with white vinegar 2 parts to 1 part water and add either fresh lemon juice or orange juice and a tsp of vegtable or almond oil to kill fleas. i also add garlic and vinegar to their food.

    plus i have cedar chips in my back yard around the house to help kill them in the yard any and all of the suggestions work we have a really bad flea problem where i live and we were spending a fortune on frontline and the sprays and powders from the store and i believe the natural way works better plus it is a lot cheaper and you do not have to worry about it hurting your babies the animal or human kind just keep it out of their eyes and on the spray their private area too.hope this has helped someone i have been using the above suggestions for a couple of years and now most of my friends family and neighbors do too they all swear by it and state it works a lot better than all that expensive stuff.

    i have used a and d on strays if the sores are really bad after using the olive oil rubbing alcohol mix.you can also spray the bag or container on your vacum and be sure to dump outside away from your house. another thing that is great if you live some place with bed bugs is old fashion dryer sheets will kjill them. i also have a recipe for homemade febreeze with downy fabric softner which i will post tomorrow.

    it ends up being just pennies a bottle and works better and longer than the real febreeze thanks for taking your time to read this your animals will love you for it thanks sissy:news1::purr::loveshower:

      thanks sissy. that was a lot of good information.

      i have 5 miniature dachshunds. We have been having some trouble with fleas too. The products that are sold at the store are to expensive and can be harmful to those that come in contact with it.

      Thanks Sissy for all the info, I do have a quick question for you though, how much vinegar do you give your dogs and how long did it take them to get use to adding it. My “Girls” will do find I think with the garlic but vinegar may be a different story.

      Thanks,
      Lyn

  4. do not give dog;s garlic..u can hurt there liver very bad..just ask ur vet…never give ur dog some thing u see on ibternet with out asking ur vet..

    i wanted to say that the comments above are wrong too. it’s all about the dosage, a dog could literally eat the entire batch of these at once and not be affected by that amount of garlic, unless it was a chihuuahahaha. 😉

    we also give our dogs garlic regularly and they are quite healthy, even our 15 yo shepherd
    Ottawa Valley Dog Whisperer: Garlic for Dogs – Health Benefits, Preparation and Use, Safe Dosage

  6. i would not give garlic to my dog either. our vet said it is unsafe. you can “read on the subject” and you will find some vets say yes and some say no – i could find a reference that says “no garlic” for every reference that someone finds that says “garlic is ok”.

    garlic for dogs: home remedies and safety issues :
    caution: however, many dog owners and some vets advise against the use of garlic, as it may create toxic metabolites and/or cause certain serious allergic reactions.

    6 Foods You Should Never Feed Your Pet :
    . . .

    . garlic, onions, chocolate, etc.

    I would rather err on the side of safety and skip the garlic for my dog.

  7. sources are conflicting – you can find anything on the web to support a point of view. many vets say not to feed garlic to dogs, both “holistic” and “regular”. i’d err on the side of safety and skip the garlic.

  8. when you say 2 parts vinegar, is this 2 cups, 2 tablespoons, 2 ounces??? We have a 4 month old puppy and give him a flea bath every 2 weeks and he still has a few fleas that bother him..

    • When you say 2 parts vinegar, is this 2 cups, 2 tablespoons, 2 ounces??? We have a 4 month old puppy and give him a flea bath every 2 weeks and he still has a few fleas that bother him..

      What 2 parts vinegar to 1 part water means is if you use 1 cup water you use 2 cups vinegar. If you use 1/4 cup water, you use 1/2 cup vinegar…

      And you just make an amount that will cover the size of the animal.

  9. thanku sissy ur comment was and is very helpful and useful! ive used garlic powder in small amounts for years with my dogs. …

    vet suggested..
    vinegar — im scared of… too much == their hair falling out…

  11. does anyone know if there is a wheat free version of this recipe? or an alternative to use instead of wheat? a couple members of our pack are allergic to wheat (and corn and soy)…

      Hi, Bisquick makes a glutton free product. I haven’t tried it but I have friends that love it.

  12. thanks sissy,
    alot of interesting ideas. i’m gonna try a few of them.
    i also keep a spray bottle with vinegar water at my back door. i spray it on a paper towel after my dogs come in and they get wiped down.

    especially rainy days, it keeps them smelling clean.:party1:

  13. does anyone have any ideas for cats? i have tried diatomateous earth, and had no success until i had gone through the house with it ( which was a given) but on the cats it had no effect. i ended up having to douse them with plain alcohol, and the long haired one had to have a second dousing after having to be shaved in between…

    then a commercial brand flea bath which i added neem oil to.

  14. is it ok to substitute another type of flour for white flour, such as garbanzo flour, almond flour or any of the other non-grain flours available?

  15. Thank you for the suggestions, can’t wait to give them a try. If they work, my dog will love you all forever.

  16. Thanks for the tips, I can’t wait to make these ! we are on a mission to reduce the toxic and chemical load on our pets…my vet recommended we use a script for heartworm prevention (of course) and store-bought for the flea, tick and mosquitos. We run off leash in the woods and have no issues, so I can definately stand by this…I’ve never “baked” but am willing to do all it takes to keep my pets free of pests and uneccesary toxins.

      i’m flagging this post as advertising/spam/scam. the product you’re attempting to sell (screen name!!) is a scam that does not protect pets. it’s been scientifically debunked.

      “the catandog’s tags had no significant effect upon egg production, egg viability, or adult fleas infesting cats. in addition there was no difference in the numbers of fleas recovered from the cats placed in the flea-infested room.”

      Evaluation of the CatanDog’s tag to prevent flea infestations, inhibit flea reproduction or repel existing flea infestations on cats. – PubMed – NCBI

      I can testify to the fact that I tried it and my routinely pulled ticks off my dog (daily in fact). They recommend you bathe your pet to get them pest free then apply the “magic disc” which they won’t tell you what’s in it or how it’s supposed to work, etc. Just basically that it’s “magic”.

      No thanks, I’ll stick to the anti-flea cookies, I know They work!!

      • I believe you are mistaking my product and company for another. We have no affiliation with Catan dog tags and I only suggested using this with the cookies, not instead of. This is not a scam and I understand your concern, I would not promote something that didn’t work.

        My pets are my children, my family, they have no fleas or ticks and we run in the woods all of the time. Give it another look, you’ll see that we are not whom you first thought. Thanks.

        • You might have seemed a bit more legit if you came on a site to talk to people and shared ideas without using your company name as your ID. That in itself makes you look like a spammer, then to share posts about one particular product, big red flags.

            i am new to this , and appreciate the advise, had no idea that would make me look bad, i used the company name intentionally for transparency and honesty lol but i didn’t know that that makes it look bad so i’ll change that, and i want to advertise here, will contact them to discuss it, but it’s worth it for this cause because i know how liver damage can shorten a life and i’m adamant about this product, so wish me luck ,thank you.
