Canine Cooking - Stuffed Bones
My dog LOVES to chew. Every night, at about 7PM, he stands in the middle of the living room, stamps his little feet, whines, and demands something to chew on while the house winds down from the day.
I know... He's spoiled.. But it's so good for his teeth! I can't help but give in to his tiny tantrum.
Sadly, this habit can get expensive. My pup can devour a bully stick in about an hour. With bully sticks costing anywhere from $3-$5 each, my pup was going to chew me out of house and home, so I started creating various recipes for stuffed bones, hooves, and kongs. I found that it's incredibly easy, budget friendly, healthy for my fur-baby, and another great way for us to bond. Check out one of my pup's favorite recipes below!
1 Large Can of 100% Pumpkin Puree (I used a 29 oz can)
1/2 Cup Dry Kibble
1/2 Cup Goat Milk (You can use bone broth too!)
Whatever Bones or Kongs You Plan on Stuffing
Process together goat milk and dry kibble. Mix together with pumpkin puree. Using a spatula, fill all your bones. Place the filled bones on a baking sheet or roasting pan and put them in the freezer. Once they are fully frozen, you can put them in a freezer bag.
Makes 14-16 filled bones.
With puppy and kitty love,
