Everything this week has been Irma, Irma, Irma. And she hasn’t even hit Florida yet. Seriously, I’m over it! I’m feeling a little like Jan Brady right now.
Aside from that, my heart and prayers go out to all the people who live in Florida. I hope y’all have evacuated by now. Also sending prayers to those who are going to be in her pathway after she leaves Florida.
Hurricane Irma is a monster of a storm!
But that’s enough about Irma because I’m sharing these lovely Probiotic Cranberry Dog Treats today.
Remember a couple weeks ago, I shared my Peanut Butter & Banana Kefir Dog Treats? I hope you made those for your dog! Well, I actually made these treats before those.
These are made using cranberries, Greek plain yogurt, kefir, and raw goats milk.
If you’re wondering where I buy fresh cranberries this time of year, I stocked up last year around Christmas. Then I stick them in my freezer to enjoy all year round.
Yes, my freezer has about four bags of cranberries from last year!
Between all the frozen fruit for me and meat for my pups, I had to purchase a chest freezer last week.
Oh, the things we do for the ones we love!
Cranberries, like blueberries, are rich with antioxidants and nutrients. Just like us humans who take cranberry for UTI’s (urinary tract infection), our four-legged friends can too!
Cranberries also act as an anti-inflammatory and help with allergies and skin issues. So if your pooch has any of these problems, these Probiotic Cranberry Dog Treats are just for him or her.
For the goats milk, I use raw goats milk from a local farmer. I’m so happy to have found a farmer who sells raw goats milk locally so I can give to my puppies!
If you don’t have that option, there’s many other options for goats milk from online to store-bought. Although most goats milk from stores is not raw.
Now you don’t have to own these cute doggie paws and bone silicone trays to make these Probiotic Cranberry Dog Treats. You can make them using your every day ice cube trays because your pup doesn’t care what shape they are.
They will be happy just to have a homemade treat from you!
Just remember, please give in moderation as too much of a good thing can be bad.
As always, if you do make these Probiotic Cranberry Dog Treats for your pooch, please leave a comment below, or share it with me by tagging your Instagram with #sweetandspicymonkey, so I can see all the doggie goodness you create in your kitchen for your pets!
Probiotic Cranberry Dog Treats are an excellent source of antioxidants and nutrients for your pooch. The probiotics are good for your dog's gut while the cranberries help with UTI's, inflammation, and skin allergies.
