An Oatmeal Dog Treat is Tasty and Healthy for Your Dog
Oatmeal dog treats are easy to make. They keep for 2-3 months in the fridge, freeze beautifully and dogs love ‘em. You can add shredded carrots or flaxseeds if you want to boost their nutritional value.
Plus, oatmeal itself is healthy.
4 Benefits of Oatmeal for Dogs:
1--It’s a complex carbohydrate, which means it keeps you fuller longer and stabilizes blood sugar.
2--It’s a good source of fiber. It can help keep your dog “regular”.
3--For dogs who are sensitive or allergic to wheat, it’s a good alternative –just replace the wheat flour with oat flour. Oats are low in gluten.
4—It’s high in protein. (Wild oats are about 27-37% protein. Cultivated oats have around 17% protein).
The World Health Organization says oat protein is equivalent to the protein in meat and eggs.
You can bake oatmeal dog treats for fun and health.
