Make dog biscuits for your furry valentine

It's almost Valentine's day, and whether you celebrate it or not, your furry friend would surely appreciate some home made biscuits. Here are easy and fun recipes your pet will love. Both should be given in moderation, of course.

For dogs

The recipe is not good for dogs who have problems with gluten.

What you need:

  • 1 cup flour 
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup brewer's yeast
  • 1.5 tbs vegetable oil
  • 0.5 cup beef broth

What to do:

Mix flour, wheat germ, and yeast. 

Pour the oil into another bowl and mix in the flour-mixture and stock, alternating between them. Doing this makes mixing the dough much easier than if you dump the whole thing in at once.

Mix well and roll out the dough on a floured surface. Cut out cookies with a cookie-cutter - heart shapes looks great for Valentine's day.

Bake on parchment-lined cookie sheet at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes. Brush with broth and flip over, bake for another ten minutes.

The biscuits should be allowed at least 40 minutes to cool and dry.

For cats

What you need:

  • 7 ounces of mashed sardines
  • 1/4 cup dry non-fat milk
  • 0.5 cup wheat germ
What to do:

Mix all ingredients and roll the dough into small balls. You should get roughly two dozen little balls from the dough. 

Place the balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and flatten with a fork.

Bake at 350 degrees F until the cookies get color.
