Frozen Flaxseed Puppy Treats

Oct 22, 2020 | Pets, Treat Recipes

It’s “Friday Treats Friday” and I have a delicious and easy Frozen Flaxseed Puppy Treat for your pup!  All it takes is 3 simple ingredients; organic flaxseed, canned pumpkin, and unsweetened applesauce, your favorite mold (In this case, I used my doggie paw and bone mold), and a spoon!  Giving flaxseed to your pup is beneficial to them in so many ways.  It not only aides in digestion but increases the shine and helps to eliminate dryness in their coats.
As always, these treats are lab tested and approved!  Just be careful in giving your dog a large amount of flaxseed for the first time as it may upset their stomach and cause diarrhea.

How much flax should I feed my dog?
Due to the fiber in the hulls of flax seeds, your dog may experience diarrhea if she eats too much at once. If your dog is new to flax, start with a small amount (especially important for tiny dogs) and build up the amount slowly to give your dog’s system time to get used to the fiber. For a small dog, 1/8 teaspoon is a good place to start. For a medium or large dog, try 1 1/2 teaspoons.
