Recipes for your dog: Shiny coat cookies

/ 4 February 2016

This recipe is easy and can be made en masse, with up to 40 cookies from one batch.

Good for: Skin and coat. Fish oil is great for making a dog’s fur glossy and sleek – good for rescue dogs growing back fur after suffering from mange or for giving them that extra sparkle when adoption time comes round.


250g of plain flour (rice flour can be substituted if your dog has a wheat intolerance, not suitable for dogs with gluten intolerance)
85g oats
85g peanut butter
375ml water
1 tbsp of honey
1/2 tbsp of fish oil


Preheat the oven to 180 °C / gas mark 4.
Add flour, fish oil, peanut butter and honey to the oats in a large bowl.
Mix well and pour in the water. The mixture should form a ball of dough.
Flour a clean, flat surface and roll out the dough until ½ cm thick.
Cut the dough into shapes using a cutter.
Line cookies on a baking tray and bake for 35 minutes or until golden.

Remember: Before feeding to dogs, make sure the cookies have cooled.

Allergy info: Just like humans, dogs can be allergic to certain foods, including peanuts. Peanut allergies in dogs are uncommon. However, if you think your dog may have an allergy to any food, the best thing to do is speak to your vet for advice.
