Homemade Treats for your pets from Michelle's Kitchen

You can cut these recipes in 1/2 to make as much or as little as you want. I also make the baked treats at Christmas Time and fill up a homemade stocking for family and friends who have a special companion.

With all that is going on in the pet food industry at this time, I have really started to cook for the pets in our house. I cook up chicken, white and/or brown rice, hamburger, ground turkey, pastas, veggies and more. If cooking for your pet remember, onions can be toxic to a dogs system so please don't use them! When making a broth I use the water that the chicken or turkey has been simmered in. Do not add salt this is bad for your pet.
