How to make dog treats using tuna
A food processor is best for this recipe as the eggshell is used and needs to be as ground up as you can.
The ingredients used
- Canned tuna - use in water
- Eggs - The shells are also used for their calcuim content
- Flaxseed meal - I used golden but brown flaxseed meal can be used.
- Coconut flour - this can substituted with almond or rice flour.
Store in the fridge in a sealed container. They should last a week.
If you don't have a food processor and want to make this in a bowl, replace the eggshells with powdered eggshells.
Remember to go slowly when introducing new foods. And we recommend checking with your veterinarian first if your dog has any digestive issues or other health concerns.
