Homemade Gelatin Treats for Dogs, Cats – Recipe

You Will Need:

  • A bowl that can take boiling liquid.
  • A brownie or lasagna type casserole dish or pan that can take boiling liquid – do NOT use a Teflon-coated or aluminum pan (toxic!).
  • Mixing spoon and spatula

Ingredients for Homemade Gelatin Treats for Dog, Cat

  • Essential Ingredients
    • 1 cup boiling water (use filtered or spring water – do not use fluoridated water), or substitute water for 1 cup of broth
  • 1 cup gelatin powder
    •  I recommend using gelatin that is made from organically raised, or pasture-raised grass fed animals. Gelatin sourced from CAFO (Factory Farm) animals provides sub-standard nutrition, and is a source of toxic residue. Make sure the only ingredient in the powder is gelatin.
  • 1 cup bone-broth or broth.
    •  I recommend that you make your own bone broth or broth. By doing so you can control the ingredients, and avoid health threatening ingredients found in most commercial made products – i.e. GMOs and GMO derived food additives, salt, sugar, MSG (listed ingredient and hidden ingredient), onion, etc.
  • Optional Ingredients – get creative!
    • Herbs
      • Add 1 tsp of organic or wild-crafted fresh or dry herbs. You can use just one herb or a combination of herbs, for example…
  • Basil
  • Bosweilla
  • Cinnamon (use Ceylon cinnamon, NOT cassia)
  • Chamomile
  • Ginger
  • Marjoram
  • Peppermint
  • Summer Savory
  • Sage
  • Note – if your dog or cat is suffering from a medical condition make sure you check condition, and drug interactions before using herbs. 
  • Berries, Other Fruit or Veggies
  • Add some fresh or frozen-fresh, whole, or chopped…
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Kiwi slices
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Tart red cherries.
  • Or select other options from the fruit and vegetables on this list.
  • If your dog or cat has a urinary tract infection, try adding fresh or fresh-frozen cranberries.

  1. I am currently feeding my 10 year old 75 lb Weimaraner 2 TBS of pumpkin every day to keep anal glands working well. I’m planning to add tumeric and coconut oil to his diet because he is developing lipomas. Should I discontinue the pumpkin with I add the coconut oil?

    • No need to remove the pumpkin. However you should be removing all items from the diet and health care regimen that are fueling the growth of the lipoma and creating the anal gland issues.
