Delight your dog with a healthy, yummy and easy-to-make Easter cake. Many human recipes include ingredients which aren’t recommended for dogs, and lots of easter treats are extremely toxic for our hounds, so creating something safe that they can enjoy is a great way to include them in the festivities.

“The Easter period is always full of chocolate, however, it’s important to remember that just one bite of chocolate can prove fatal for dogs,” Melanie Sainsbury, Veterinary Education Manager at Natures Menu, says.

“It’s down to the toxic ingredient called theobromine, a naturally occurring chemical found in cocoa beans, which can cause kidney failure, seizures and even death.”

To ensure our four-legged friends don’t miss out, Melanie has shared a tasty treat that’s perfect for dogs – and it can be made in just five steps. Take a look at how to make it below…

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup of grated carrots
  • ¼ cup of apple sauce
  • ¼ cup of olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • Natures Menu Lamb & Chicken Real Meaty Treats (or a treat of your choice)

    INSTRUCTIONS

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

    2. Mix the flour, carrots, baking powder, egg, apple sauce and olive oil together until the dough has the consistency of play-dough.

    3. Use Easter-shaped cookie cutters to create individual treats.

    4. Evenly space out the cookies on baking paper and bake for 20-22 minutes.

    5. Once cooked, you can place a meaty treat on top as a finishing touch or simply leave as it is. Make sure you let the cookie cool down before treating your pup to Easter yumminess.
