DIY Frozen Dog Treat Recipes

Summer may be winding down, but temperatures remain high in many places. This is the best time of year for relaxing and rejuvenating, and what better way to beat the heat and treat your furry friend than with DIY frozen dog treats.

Making DIY treats doesn’t have to be an extravagant activity. Gather ingredients you may have lying around the house, incorporate fun and natural flavors, and you’re good to go! Keep ingredients simple, fresh, and natural. 

We’ve talked before about the benefits of including raw foods into your pet’s diet. Wholesome foods do not need to be expensive. Some of the most convenient and wholesome ingredients may be lying in your fridge right this second! 

Momentum Carnivore Nutrition’s freeze-dried raw seasonings make the perfect ingredient for DIY treats. Easy to use and delicious to eat, these seasonings are sure to make your pet drool with desire. Choose from unique flavors of turkey gizzard, beef kidney, chicken breast, grass-fed grass-finished bison tripe, and pork heart. 

You’ll likely notice most of the recipes use organic yogurt or kefir. Yogurt can be a fantastic source of probiotics for pets. Be sure to use unflavored yogurt or kefir with no sweeteners.
