When I was recently researching coconut oil dog treats to add to my dog’s diet , I wondered how many different kinds of coconut oil dog treats I could make? I not only wanted to make them as treats; at the time I also wanted to use them as a cake topper for my dog’s birthday cake. So, I did some research and testing in the kitchen to find out. So, what kind of coconut oil dog treats can you make ?
You can easily make frozen coconut oil and fruit dog treats using those two ingredients in the ratio of 2:1 coconut oil to fruit. You can further boost it by adding ingredients such as rooibos tea, honey or kefir. Watch the portions that your dog needs (1/2 teaspoon for every 10 pounds to start off with) and feed it every few days.
Variety is a key component to a balanced diet. Rotate up to five different fruit each month so that your dog can obtain maximum benefits from the variety of nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants different fruit has. As for the portion to serve, the guideline recommended is no more than one teaspoon for every 10 pounds. That said – I prefer to ease into coconut oil and recommend starting off with 1/2 teaspoon for every ten pounds.
