Fresh Breath Dog Biscuits

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 30 mins

These are packed with parsley to make your dog's breath smell great and they boast a stack of vitamin C and iron as well. My dog LOVES them. Sometimes I substitute pumpkin for the carrot. The water used will vary for every batch. Taken from Australia's Dr Harry's recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Lightly grease 2 baking trays or line with baking paper.
  2. In a small bowl mix parsley, carrot, cheese and oil. In another bowl stir together flour, bran and baking powder. Then add the parsley mixture and stir well.
  3. Gradually add 1/2 cup water. Mix well, adding more water, if needed, to make the dough moist. Knead for 1 minute on a floured surface.
  4. Roll dough until it is 1cm thick. Use a small cookie cutter (bone shaped) or glass to cut as many bikkies as you can, re-rolling the scraps.
  5. Bake for 20-30 mins, or until biscuits are brown. Allow to cool on rack. These will harden as they cool.
  6. Store in airtight container for up to 2 months.

Seriously!? I have bought so many dog treats hoping they would make our dogs breath fresher and the only thing we ever found were greenies and I am not in the position to spend that much on dog treats! I was out of several of the ingredients when I first made them, but I improvised and put them on in the oven. I had to bake them a lot longer than I thought, but I think it's because I modified the recipe. Some even got a little brown. I let them get hard and then started handing them out. They loved them and their breath has never been fresher! I am not one to leave reviews unless I am super excited about something. We have 3 dogs of all different ages and they all smell 100% better. As soon as they hear me grab the ziploc, they come running. I am making more today, but have all of the ingredients this time. I am sure they will come out wonderfully and my bank account appreciates the homemade treats. Thank you so much for posting!

ok this is another one I chose for PAC-06. I made these at my SIL place cause she has a dog that loves treats. I stored them in an airtight container in the fridge and she also froze some. The dog loved em we didn't seem to have problems with molding. I am not sure how the frozen ones will be but I can post that later.

I thought this recipe for home made treats might be the answer, but unfortunately my two dogs did not like them, despite all the coaxing from me!<br/><br/>Also, even though I stored them in an airtight container, they started growing mould after about 7-8 days.
