doggie breath busters (grain free)

Few dogs exist that don’t have bad breath. The best defense to bad breath is regular vet visits and an annual dental cleaning. Bad breath is not something to be ignored because it can be indicative of any number of medical issues from plaque and tartar buildup to tooth decay to something far more serious. Assuming you take excellent care of your fur babies like I do, they still can knock you out with their kisses. This recipe is easy to make, and my dogs love the resulting treat. And the most important part of course – they really do help with the nasty breath!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • Small handful fresh mint
  • Small handful fresh parsley
  • 1-2 tbsp filtered water

Make It:

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender cup and puree.
  2. Pour into ice cube tray to desired size – half full for small to medium dogs and full for larger dogs.
  3. Freeze until solid.
  4. Pop out of trays and store in the freezer in a freezer-safe container or freezer storage bag.
  5. Feed 1-2 treats daily.

Yield: approx. 24 half-cube treats

This would also make a great puree to pour into a Kong and freeze!
