Bake dog or cat biscuits yourself? What do you need to know?

That sounds like a fantastic idea! Homemade Dog or cat biscuits can be a fun and healthy treat for your four-legged friend. Here are some do's and don'ts, as well as some considerations when baking dog biscuits:


  1. Use Dog or catfriendly ingredients: Ensure that the ingredients you use are safe for dogs/cats. Some human foods, such as chocolate, grapes, and onions, can be harmful to dogs/cats.
  2. Choose healthy ingredients: Use ingredients that are healthy for dogs/cats, such as whole wheat flour, oatmeal, peanut butter without xylitol, and unsalted broth.
  3. Avoid additives: Be cautious with additives like salt, sugar, and other spices. Dogs/cats have sensitive digestive systems, so it's best to keep it simple.
  4. Experiment with flavors: Dogs/cats have their own preferences, so experiment with different flavors to find out what your dogs/cats likes best.
  5. Consider allergies: If you know your dog/cat has allergies, choose ingredients that are safe and avoid potentially irritating substances.


  1. Avoid toxic ingredients: As mentioned earlier, avoid ingredients that are toxic to dogs/cats, such as chocolate, grapes, raisins, onions, and garlic.
  2. Limit salt and sugar: Too much salt and sugar can be harmful to dogs/cats. Keep the amounts to a minimum.
  3. Be careful with nuts: Some nuts, like macadamia nuts, are toxic to dogs/cats. Use only safe nuts like peanuts (make sure they have no salt or additives).
  4. Do not use yeast dough: Yeast dough can cause problems in a dogs/cats digestive system, so avoid using it.
  5. Be cautious with allergenic ingredients: If your dog/cat is sensitive to certain ingredients, avoid them to prevent allergic reactions.


  1. Portion control: Give dogs/cats biscuits as treats and ensure they do not make up more than 10% of your dogs/cats daily calorie intake.
  2. Store them well: Ensure homemade dogs/cats biscuits are stored properly to prevent spoilage. Refrigeration or airtight containers are good options.
  3. Check for allergic reactions: Monitor your dog/cat  the first few times you introduce a new ingredient to ensure there are no allergic reactions.

Safe and Popular Ingredients:

It's great that you can use so many different ingredients to bake dogs/cats biscuits. Here is a list of some safe and popular ingredients for homemade dogs/cats biscuits, as well as some ingredients to be cautious with:

Grains or flour: Whole wheat flour, oatmeal, rice flour.
Meat: Cooked and finely chopped chicken, beef, or turkey.
Fish: Cooked and mashed salmon, tuna, or whitefish.
Vegetables: Cooked and pureed sweet potato, carrot, pumpkin, or spinach.
Fruits: Mashed banana, apple, blueberries, or strawberries (without seeds or skin).
Dairy products: Unsweetened natural yogurt, cottage cheese (watch for lactose intolerance).
Nuts: Peanut butter (ensure it has no xylitol, which is toxic to dogs).

Ingredients to Be Cautious With:

  1. Onion and garlic: Even in small amounts, these can cause anemia in dogs.
  2. Chocolate: Contains theobromine, which is toxic to dogs.
  3. Grapes and raisins: Can cause kidney problems.
  4. Nuts: Some nuts, such as macadamia nuts, are toxic to dogs.
  5. Dairy products: Too much lactose can cause stomach issues, so be careful with dogs that are lactose intolerant.
