Dog Food Treat Recipes Made
with Baby Food
What could be easier than making home made dog treats with baby food? The dog treat recipes on this page all use jars of baby food as a major ingredient.
If baby food is good for your baby why wouldn't it be good for your fur-baby too?
Please be aware that several of these recipes will make large batches of food. You might wish to cut the dog food recipes or freeze them for later use.
NOTE: When cooking for pets using prepared baby food, make sure the baby food does not contain onion products as onions are harmful to pets.
