Reviews for Diabetic Dog Treats
My dogs love love love it!! My baking was never this popular! I will regularly make this!
Added some share cheddar. Brown Rice flour instead of ww flour. Next Time I'll double recipe. Doesn't make a lot. My baby loves them!!
My dog was just diagnosed with diabetes last week and is now on insulin we looked over all over for treats and couldn't find any so I made these today and she loves them. My other two dogs that are not diabetic loves them too. It was very simple and inexpensive.
I made this for my diabetic dog and her brother. They loved this and couldn’t wait to get more. They followed me all over the place afterwards hoping to get more. They usually get a cookie after dinner for their dessert and when they saw me take it out of the refrigerator, they went crazy. I gave this easy recipe to my sister and my daughter for their dogs who are not diabetics but will love this also.
There will not be any going to waste!! Thank you for an easy, healthy recipe!! Even though as written would certainly stand on its own, I read through the reviews and made the following changes: replaced the wheat flour with Sorghum flour, used the whole egg, including shells-so fun to drop the whole thing in-added 1/2 cup oatmeal, and a shake of garlic powder. Using a pizza cutter is pretty slick, but found a cookie cutter was fun, too! On behalf of my furry loves, we thank you!!
My dog is a diabetic and I made these with gluten free rice flour. It makes needle time less of a chore as he goes upto the fridge before he has his shot to get one of these. So cheap to make .
I use four jars of beef baby food, four eggs and one cup organic brown rice flour to make two batches at a time. Both of my yorkies love these treats, and only one is diabetic. They freeze really well, too. Just make sure they've cooled completely prior to freezing.
My dog loves these! I think they stink, though... easy to make!
This was a hit with 2 of my 3 huskies. My girl Nanook was just diagnosed with diabetes and she loves them!
So glad I found this recipe! Not only is it chihuahua approved but vet approved as well. My chihuahua was recently diagnosed with diabetes and he wasn't at all happy about receiving injections twice daily. These treats make it a bit more pleasant for him. Thanks again
She loves her treat, I give to her after her insulin injection.
Dogs love them! Very easy to make. I cut these into cubes and put them in a freezer bag in the freezer so that they last longer. The dogs love them frozen as well!
or 10 stars!!!.My elderly dog was diagnosed with diabetes last fall. She is extremely brittle. So we gave up and make all her dog food. As for the worries over the Glycemic I. It's only 1/2 cup and that's not much/serving. Also, why mess with a really good recipe. I have to increase slightly as liver is only available in 1#pkgs. Also ---freeze! as it will spoil. I make the same recipe using canned Salmon to vary treats.
What most people don't realize is that although dogs crave liver, it is not good for them on a regular basis. On several occasion I've given my little dogs small liver treats . About 3 a day and each time after a couple of days, they started to have diarrhea! One of them also vomited on a couple of occasions. These were not the same treats each time. I tried different ones containing liver with the same results. I switched to chicken and they were fine. I then switched to beef...no problems. So I did some research and quickly found that liver has a high concentration of vitamin A and too much vitamin A for Dogs is poisonous! Especially for dogs with pancreatitis/diabetes! It causes problems in the digestive track. or hypervitaminosis A. and could in rare circumstances lead to death. Please take this warning when giving your dog these treats. They do love them like cats love catnip, but sadly it's not really good for them. Please Google this if you are having a hard time believing what I say. You would be doing your dog a huge favour. Thank you.
My pup and the neighbor dogs love these! I throw everything in the blender, eggshells and all, and bake on a greased cookie sheet. They flip out just fine and are easy to cut up. They may not last long after baked, so my dad cut them up really small and dried them out to use as training treats with his pup.
The first time I made this I made a huge error - I used TWO cups rye flour instead of the 1/2 cup the recipe calls for! I added 2 more eggs, some water and my last jar of beef baby food - and wouldn't you know it , all THREE of my doggies (only one is diabetic) LOVED the end result! When I made the treats again, correctly, only two doggies still loved them. My 'food diva' wasn't interested any longer. (go figure!) This is such a terrific recipe - so EASY and inexpensive to make. I'll be making this for as long as it's needed.
Woof! Those smelled bad the first time! I've made these many, many times but took the advice of other reviewers. Swapped something ELSE for that liver. So I use 96/4 ground beef, ground or canned chicken, tuna, salmon, baby food chicken, or turkey "sausages," etc. Just like others said: Count your fingers after you offer these to your fur-babies. I started making these for our previous rescue who became very ill w/diabetes and Cushing's. I'm starting early making them again for our two brand-new rescues. (8 & 10 month olds). I'm even using gluten-free/paleo flour. They see those treats & start dancing! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!
We recently found out our fur baby is diabetic. She is use to getting a treat at certain times of the day so I wanted something to fit her needs. Although I thought I was going to blow chunks handling the liver, because I absolutely despise liver, it was easy to make and she loves them. I went through one batch and about to make another.
The dogs loved it! The recipe was easy to follow and simple to make. I have 3 older dachshunds and this is easy on their systems while still being apparently very tasty! Thanks for this recipe.
This is a great recipe but I would like to point out that flour has a high Glycemic Index. Even the brown rice flour that one reader suggested has a very high GI and GL. I will be using this recipe for my diabetic furry child but will use oat flower (ground from oatmeal)as it has a low Glycemic Load.
Our extremely finicky newly diagnosed diabetic dog loves these. She will eat them even when she won't eat anything else. Something to keep in mind though, wheat does contain gluten, so it will effect glucose levels. But it's very easy to sub different flours that are more diabetic friendly than wheat, such as barley, or oat, or what ever your particular dog happens to like. Thanks so much for the recipe! :-)
Good recipe but why did someone say that they add honey?!? That has natural sugar and would be terrible for a diabetic dog. Geeze.
The dogs absolutely loved it. It is so easy to make and much cheaper than store bought treats that you don't know the contents of.
I made a few changes for my dogs who aren't diabetic but anyway they just loved it! I added one sweet potato, grated, and 1/2 tsp baking powder to make the treats softer. The result was amazing!
