Dogs, and people, love treats. Treats are fantastic for rewarding and reinforcing good behaviour. It's even better when we know what goes into these treats. There's no better way than to make them yourself. Do you have any doggie treat recipies to sahare? Here's a treat recipe to tackle bad breath: * 2 cups brown rice flour * 1 Tablespoon activated charcoal (find this at drugstores, not the briquets!) * 3 Tablespoons canola oil * 1 egg * 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint * 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley * 2/3 cup lowfat milk Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly oil a cookie sheet. Combine flour and charcoal. Add all the other ingredients.Drop teaspoonfulls on oiled sheet, about 1 inch apart. Bake 15-20 minutes. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator.

home made dog food - I believe home made dog food and treats are a good way for people to connect with their pets and that is important in this day and age.
If I may, charcoal is added as a breath freshener...odors come from our digestion in some cases and so ingested this helps to deordorize the breath and the other end to some degree!

No. I have found that cats generally treat themselves, how and when they want.
