A couple weeks ago we posted a blog about how many calories your dog or cat should be eating daily. Today we thought it would be fun to post a couple of home-made treats that you can make for your dog or cat. A lot of these ingredients are things that you may already have in your home. Do you have any recipes for home-made dog or cat treats? If you don’t mind sharing the recipe, I’m sure our other readers would love to try them out.

Savory Cheese Treat for your favorite cat. This recipe will make about 2 dozen treats for your cat.


¾ cup of white flour

¾ cup of shredded cheddar cheese

5 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese

¼ cup plain yogurt or sour cream

¼ cup of cornmeal


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the two different types of cheese with the yogurt.

Add the flour and the cornmeal to the mixture.

You may need to add some water to for a dough-type consistency.

Knead the dough into a ball about ¼ inch.

Cut into 1 inch sized pieces.

Place the pieces onto a greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 25 minutes.
