¨Homemade Dog Treats¨

I am the mom to Simona, my 3 year old four legged Mexican black lab who goes bananas for the sweet potato, and of course, she is a single child and every time i can i like to treat her with the most natural things she likes and of course i make sure she can eat. 

Fall is here and so are pumpkins, so i thought this could be a great combo for her...  This recipe is totally approved by her!

Why don´t you get into the kitchen and bake some goods for your fur child? I promise the´re gonna love them! 

Besides coconut oil is super good for them because it helps regulate their metabolism, have a shiny coat and it work as a natural antimicrobial, flaxseed gives them energy and lots of omegas and of course pumpkin and sweet potato are full of fiber and vitamins and the oats regulate the sugar n the blood and are good for the heart too!
