Original recipes from thepoop.com and littlepawspetclub.blogspot.com The number of treats this recipe makes depends on the size of the cutouts. *** Note: Regarding garlic and dogs: Many dogs enjoy the taste of garlic and it's a natural flea repellent. A small bit of cooked garlic should not be toxic. However, according to the American Animal Hospital Association, raw and spoiled garlic is toxic and potentially fatal to dogs. Consult with your veterinarian before using and use in small quantities.***

I had a 5.25 oz salmon and BBQ sauce foil pack I found in the back of the pantry - way out of date, but seemed to be fine. Wasn't quite enough and no oil, so I also added an egg. I also softened, then heated 1 tsp gelatin in the water. You definitely can't mix this in the blender. Pulverized the oatmeal and then the salmon and egg, put in a bowl and mixed with my hands. Rolled out between 2 sheets of waxed paper to about 1/4",cut in 1/4" strips, then 1/4" strips crosswise for little cubes. I thought about going to look to see if we still had the playdoh extruder from when the kids were little. Cooked at 350 20 minutes then left in the still warm, turned-off oven for about an hour until they were little bricks. The dogs, of course, loved these.
