Homemade Gelatin Treats for Dogs, Cats

Homemade gelatin treats for dogs, cats provide a simple, quick to make health-supporting treat that your companion animal will love!

Homemade Gelatin Treats For Dogs, Cats - Recipe

You Will Need:
  • A bowl that can take boiling liquid.
  • A brownie or lasagna type casserole dish or pan that can take boiling liquid – do NOT use a Teflon-coated or aluminum pan (toxic!).
  • Mixing spoon and spatula
Ingredients for Homemade Gelatin Treats for Dog, Cat
  • Essential Ingredients
    • 1 cup boiling water (use filtered or spring water - do not use fluoridated water), or substitute water for 1 cup of broth
    • 1 cup gelatin powder 
      •  I recommend using gelatin that is made from organically raised, or pasture-raised grass fed animals. Gelatin sourced from CAFO (Factory Farm) animals provides sub-standard nutrition, and is a source of toxic residue. Make sure the only ingredient in the powder is gelatin.
    • 1 cup bone-broth or broth.
      •  I recommend that you make your own bone broth or broth. By doing so you can control the ingredients, and avoid health threatening ingredients found in most commercial made products – i.e. GMOs and GMO derived food additives, salt, sugar, MSG (listed ingredient and hidden ingredient), onion, etc.
  • Optional Ingredients - get creative!
    • Herbs
      • Add 1 tsp of organic or wild-crafted fresh or dry herbs. You can use just one herb or a combination of herbs, for example... 
        • Basil
        • Bosweilla
        • Cinnamon (use Ceylon cinnamon, NOT cassia)
        • Chamomile
        • Ginger
        • Marjoram
        • Peppermint
        • Summer Savory
        • Sage 
        • Note - if your dog or cat is suffering from a medical condition make sure you check condition, and drug interactions before using herbs. 

  • Berries, Other Fruit or Veggies
  • Add some fresh or frozen-fresh, whole, or chopped...
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Kiwi slices
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Tart red cherries
  • Or select other options from the fruit and vegetables on this list
  • If your dog or cat has a urinary tract infection, try adding fresh or fresh-frozen cranberries.

  • Pour the gelatin powder into the bowl.
  • Pour the broth into the bowl, and allow to sit for one to two minutes.
  • Next, pour the boiling liquid into the bowl, stir the mixture until the gelatin is dissolved.
  • Pour the blended mixture into a pan. 
  • Place in the refrigerator and allow to solidify.
  •  Cut into cubes, strips or shapes as desired.
  • Store in the refrigerator.

Note -

1.0 Use of Foods, Herbs, Nutraceuticals and Alternative Medicines:

When choosing to use any of the items or protocols in the article above, it is your responsibility to ensure safe use of the item/protocol. Food, herbs, nutraceuticals and alternative medicines all have drug interactions, most have health issue contradictions, some have side effects. Use of substances and protocols are your responsibility. Prior to use of any substance or protocol make sure you do your research - check for all cautions, contradictions,interactions, side effects. If in doubt do not use the substance or protocol. If the substance, or protocol is contradicted for your animal do not use. If your animal has an underlying condition you are not aware of substances may conflict with that condition.

2.0 The Real Meaning of Holistic…

Food, herbs, nutraceuticals and alternative medicines are NOT ‘holistic’ they are a substance and MAY, or may NOT be ‘NATURAL’. It is important to keep in mind that the supplement industry is just as unethical as BigPharma, the Food and Pet Food Industry, and unfortunately many veterinarians.

If you use a ‘natural’ substance (i.e. an herb) you are using a natural substance, this is not synonymous with holistic.

Holistic is a way of approaching life, and within that - overall health, and wellbeing.

Please do not expect a natural substance to miraculously remedy a health or behavioral situation. A natural substance may be used to treat symptoms. However, if the factors causing the underlying issue are not properly identified, analyzed and addressed you do not have a remedy.

Remedy requires a comprehensive approach that identifies root cause, seeks to remove items that trigger, cause or otherwise contribute to issues, and builds a complete, and detailed approach to immediate treatment, remedy, and maintenance of long-term health = holistic.

I offer extensive consultation services - Holistic Diet, Nutrition Wellness and Holistic Behavioral, for people that are serious about looking after their dogs and cats holistically. If you want to engage my services you can contact me via email or phone.

If you are looking for additional free advice, please refer back to the articles on my site, do not contact me via email or phone - personalized service is for my clients / patients only.
