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.
Offer to Your Dog or Cat
  • As a meal topper.

Important Note

1.0 Use of Foods, Herbs, Alternative Medicines:

Safe use of items and protocols in the article above, is your sole responsibility.

Foods, herbs and alternative medicines have health issue, condition and conventional drug interactions. Safe use of all substances and protocol are your responsibility.

Before you use any substance or protocol do your research. Check for cautions, contradictions, interactions and side effects. Do not use substances or protocols not suitable to your animal's individual circumstances.

If your animal has an underlying condition substances and protocols may conflict.

2.0 Definition of Holistic…

Food, herbs, alternative medicines are NOT ‘holistic’ they are a substance and MAY, or may NOT be ‘NATURAL’.

If you use a ‘natural’ substance (ie. an herb) you are using a natural substance, not a holistic substance.

Holistic is not defined by use of one or several substances. Holistic is an approach.

Definition of “holistic” from the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary & Thesaurus © Cambridge University Press


"relating to the whole of something or to the total system instead of just to its parts"

"Holistic medicine attempts to treat the whole person, including mind and body, not just the injury or disease."

Holistic is a way of approaching life, and within that health, and well-being.

3.0 Expectation a natural substance remedies a health or behavioral situation.

A natural substance used to treat symptoms. But, if factors causing the underlying issue remain you do not have a remedy.

Remedy requires a comprehensive approach. It is necessary to identify root cause. Remove items that trigger, cause or otherwise contribute to issues. Holistic approach includes design, implementation to treat, remedy and maintain long-term health.
