Pumpkin Carrot Bites for Dogs - healthy DIY dog treat recipe

Pawsitively Pets

This Pumpkin Carrot Bites recipe is super simple and made with only 4 ingredients - pumpkin, carrots, whole wheat flour and 1 egg. Carrots are especially nutritious for dogs, offering beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin K, potassium and antioxidants.

Did you know...

Plain canned pumpkin is one of the most healthy and nutritious foods for dogs. High in fiber, low in fat, and loaded with beta carotene (also known as vitamin A), pumpkin is also used to address various canine health issues. Adding just 1-2 tablespoons of pumpkin to your dog's food bowl, for instance, can help battle your dog’s diarrhea or constipation.

Please note - NEVER use canned pumpkin pie in any dog treat recipe as it may contain nutmeg (toxic to dogs), xylitol (toxic to dogs), sugar, and other ingredients unhealthy for dogs. Plain canned organic pumpkin is the healthiest and safest option.

Every so often, however, Django will have a pee accident in our house. Usually this happens when we're distracted by work or busy with our toddlers and forget to take Django outside on time. Occasionally a pee accident will happen simply because Django gets super excited and can't control his bladder.

So, what are the best rugs for dogs? What types of rugs are best for families with small children? What rug fabric types are best for dog owners?
