  1. thank you for posting the truth about garlic in pet treats!! i am so tired of seeing blatant misinformation on the internet about how garlic is bad for pets. onions are bad for dogs, garlic is not.

    here’s a guide on the garlic levels safe for dogs, based on a dog’s weight:

    fresh garlic (from the complete guide to natural health for dogs and cats by dr. pitcairn)

    10 to 15 pounds: .5 clove
    20 to 40 pounds: 1 clove
    45 to 70 pounds: 2 cloves
    75 to 90 pounds: 2.5 cloves
    100 pounds +: 3 cloves

  2. bone meal is a mixture of finely and coarsely ground animal bones and if you buy prepackaged stuff, also can contain slaughter-house waste products. it’s a fabulous fertilizer for plants in addition to a tasty flavor enhancer in homemade dog treats. you can actually get bone meal from your local meat market guy (or the meat department at walmart, or any major grocery store.) just ask them to save the bone shavings for you.

    you can also grind chicken or turkey bones yourself if you want to make your own.

    alternatively, you can buy this nutrient rich product in a bottle at health food stores, or online on Amazon. We actually purchase the Kal Bone Meal Powder and include it in our homemade (homeopathic) pet food recipes to supplement phosphorus and calcium in their diets.

  3. i made these yesterday and baked them for the time listed, but my son said that we should put gravy on them. i still had some leftover gravy from thanksgiving so we dipped them in gravy and then rebaked them until the gravy was dried. my doggies are in 7th Heaven!

    They LOVE these Love shower

    Thank you so much for sharing your fantastic recipes budget101! I’ll be making packages of these for gifts for my friends pets.

  4. i was wondering if we can omit some of the cornmeal. my friend had a dog that was allergic to corn products. i would love to send her any recipe so she is not spending too much money on store bought products and with the recent recalls.

    this will save some time and headache.

  5. my dogs love this one: 350 degree preheated oven
    1 1/2 cups each whole wheat flour and selfrising flour
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup peanut butter
    2T bacon grease (OIL)
    mix all ingredients. with rolling pin, roll out to 1/8 th inch thick
    cut into any size you want. I use the back of butter knife so as not to scratch counter tops
    Bake in no stick cookie sheets until golden brown
