Canine Christmas Confectionery
We love our dogs at RD Thomas! In fact, if you visit the office on a Friday you may be greeted at the door by one of our many fur babies. So this Christmas Angela, our resident cat lady, made a special treat for the doggies over at the Humane Society. Zac and Shelby got to have all the fun delivering the goods!
These biscuits are a good healthy treat, especially if your dog has digestive issues. In fact, Zac tried one and said he prefers them to Milkbones! Wait…
Pumpkin Dog Biscuits
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 2 tablespoons dry milk
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 1/2 cups brown rice flour
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
Preheat oven to 350.
In large bowl, whisk together eggs and pumpkin. Stir in dry milk, sea salt, and dried parsley. Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with spatula or hands to form a stiff, dry dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface (can use the brown rice flour) and if dough is still rough, briefly knead and press to combine.
Roll dough between 1/4 – 1/2″ and use biscuit cutters to punch shapes. Place shapes on cookie sheet, no greasing or paper necessary. If desired, press fork pattern on biscuits before baking, lightly pressing down halfway through dough. Bake 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and carefully turn biscuits over, then bake additional 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely on rack.
Makes up to 75 small (1″) biscuits or 50 medium biscuits
These biscuits are a healthy everyday treat, and useful for a dog with a sensitive stomach, or minor digestion issues. If your dog is showing any signs of serious distress, remove all food and contact your veterinarian immediately.
