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.

Preparation:
  • 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.
Storage
  • Store in the refrigerator.
