CBD is a healthy supplement that aids in many types of dog ailments. Check with your vet before giving your dog CBD. Once they’ve been cleared, here are some recipes for you to try that your pup is sure to love!


 No-Bake Pumpkin and Turmeric CBD Dog Treats

 Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of pumpkin puree
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 cups of rolled oats
  • 3 teaspoons of turmeric powder
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • CBD oil (based on dosage recommendations for dogs weight)

Directions:

  1. Mix pumpkin, honey, turmeric, and coconut oil.
  2. Slowly mix in rolled oats. This will cause the mixture to take on a cookie dough-like consistency.
  3. Roll the mixture into a ball shape slightly smaller than the palm of your hand. Place pumpkin balls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet that will fit in your refrigerator.
  4. Add the suggested amount of CBD oil to each ball. Use the tincture to measure out the amount and drop it onto the balls.
  5. Place in the refrigerator to harden for about two hours.

Notes about this recipe:

Be sure to use 100% pumpkin puree. Pumpkin pie filling is often sold in a similar-looking can but contains spices and high levels of sugar that may be unsafe for your dog to consume.

Allowing the coconut oil to soften will make it easier to incorporate into your recipe. Coconut oil becomes a liquid when it reaches 76 degrees. Often room temperature will keep it in liquid form. However, if needed, you can heat it up in the microwave. Start in ten second increments, mixing between each one until you reach your desired consistency.

Quick cook oats will also work in place of rolled oats, but it will change the consistency of the dough. You may need to decrease the amount of liquid added to the recipe. You can also add small amounts of oats until you reach the desired consistency.

You can give one treat to your dog as needed. Do not exceed the recommended dosage of CBD each day.


Savory Peanut Butter Treats

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of quick cook oats
  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree- make sure it is not pumpkin pie filling, but 100% pumpkin puree. Pumpkin pie filling contains spices and sugar that may not be healthy for your dog.
  • ½ of a cup of creamy peanut butter. Natural peanut butter would be the ideal option, but any smooth type will work.
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 cup of beef broth
  • CBD oil

 Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Mix quick oats, pumpkin puree, creamy peanut butter, coconut oil, and beef broth together in a bowl. It may take some time to work ingredients together. If the peanut butter and coconut oil are softened, it will make it easier to incorporate all ingredients.
  3. Add the recommended dosage of CBD oil to the mixture. Add the amount based on the number of cookies you will make.
  4. Form the dough into cookie shape and place on a lined baking sheet. The cookies should consist of about one to two tablespoons of the dough.
  5. Bake the peanut butter cookies for twenty to thirty minutes depending on the size and desired crispiness. They should be slightly browned on the bottom.
  6. Allow the cookies to cool to room temperature.
  7. Allow treats to cool completely before feeding them to your dog.
  8. Once they have cooled, store the cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

You can substitute the beef broth for whatever protein your dog prefers. You can even use bone broth!

Regular rolled oats will also work in place of quick cook oats, but it will change the consistency of the dough. You may need to add more liquid.

Using crunchy peanut butter is not recommended. The large chunks of peanuts may not be safe for your dog.
