Homemade Treats for Z/D Diets

Grind the kibbles into a flour using a blender and mix with enough water to form dough.  Shape into "cookies" and bake them on a cookie sheet in the oven for approximately thirty minutes at 350 degrees or until crispy.

All homemade treats need to be stored in the refrigerator no longer than five to seven days to maintain their freshness and prevent spoilage.

As you know, it is very important for your pets to stay strictly on the prescribed diet and this will allow them to feel special and spoiled.

These homemade treats should not exceed 5% of your pets' total daily intake as baking the treats does alter the nutritional characteristics of the diet.
