About a week ago I saw these dog biscuits on Pinterest. The recipe was developed by Marilyn at Simmer Till Done. She made them for her dog that was having stomach problems because her vet told her pumpkin could help calm a dog's stomach when they've eaten something they shouldn't have eaten. Good to know. Maisy's been know to eat some pretty weird and disgusting things...but this is a food blog so I'll just leave that to your imagination!
I read through the recipe and saw that it was also wheat-free so Maisy could have these treats. I made them for her today. There was a lot of tail wagging going on while she ate the first one so I think she approves.
