Today’s Dog Treat Cookie Recipe

Did you know?
Tuna is beneficial for the skin and coat of your dog due to the high amount of omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids also aid joint health and mobility, plus are responsible for a long list of cardiovascular benefits Tuna is low in saturated fats and high in protein, making it a suitable treat for dogs. It is an excellent source of Vitamin B6 and 12, folic acid and selenium, which plays a major role in preventing the occurrence of cancer and heart disease.
Polenta itself stands for grounded corn flour. Polenta can be either yellow or white. Polenta contains a good range of vitamins and minerals, Vitamin A, Vitamins B6, B12, D, E and K, thiamine, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc. It’s also a great source of fiber. Polenta adds a different texture with a hint of crunchiness to dog treats.

    My dog, and all the neighbourhood dogs, are so happy I found your wonderful web site. They love your treats! I’m so impressed how you choose high quality ingredients. I especially love the attention to detail you take to explain why the ingredients are healthy for my dog. Thank you so much for the care and time you take with this site.
    Can’t wait to try this recipe. I don’t think my dog has had tuna before. Maybe the cats will like these too.
