Posted on

Treat your furry friends to some good old-fashioned home baking this week with 5 DIY Homemade Pet Treats you can make. Celebrate National Picnic Week in style, with your best friend!

11th-19th June marks the celebration of National Picnic Week, and here at CPC we’ve searched the internet for some great DIY Pet treats to take with you on your adventures!

We’ve found five tasty treats you can make at home, from healthy grain-free dog treats, to fishy flavours for your felines and even some oaty goodies for that special house rabbit.

Take me to the treats!

Cat Treats:

Taking your cat on a picnic outside the house may seem like a bit of a crazy idea, but some cats enjoy being on a lead or harness while out with you. If your cat isn’t one of them, why not have a little garden picnic (or carpet picnic!) and share some healthy homemade cat treats with your favourite fur ball?

These Homemade Tuna Cat Treats from MessForLess are a sure-fire hit with your feline friends.

Adventures In Cooking show us how to make these Tuna & Cheddar Crisps.
BONUS! This post also contains some tasty sounding dog treats for your canine companions! Healthy homemade treats for all!

“The bonus of healthy homemade pet treats is that you know exactly what has gone into them, and what’s going into your pet, making it much easier for you to balance their daily food intake”
