Are these the healthiest dog treats in the world?

For this recipe all you need is gelatin, bone broth, a little garlic paste and a mould to set it in – how could it be any easier than that?  Not just super tasty but super healthy too.  Gelatin is great for the skin, nails, coat and joints. Bone broth is anti inflammatory, great for the blood, the immune system and aids digestion.  Garlic keep fleas, ticks and worms away, cleans the blood and is anti fungal, anti bacterial and antiviral.  But isn’t garlic bad for dogs?

No sugar, no gluten, no preservatives, just pure goodness in a tasty treat that your dog will love.  Just 3 ingredients needed to make this simple dog treat recipe that makes your dog even healthier!

Previously I told you how to make your own bone broth recipe since it’s so good for dogs and making it is a lot cheaper than buying it.  I use this pressure cooker and it means I can make bone broth for the price of some bones which any decent butcher will give you for free! Bone broth is a real super food that helps boost your dogs immune system and overall health but if you don’t want to make it you can buy it pre-made here.

You can get pet shaped Jelly Baby moulds from here or you can use a Gummy bear mould instead.  I’ll be using a a gelatin you can get online as it’s perfect for dogs as it’s suger free and natural but any gelatin will do!


2 ½ tablespoons of gelatin, 140ml (1/2 cup) of bone broth, ¼ teaspoon of garlic paste.

How to store

As a general guide if meat protein is present in recipe then it will last around 3 to 5 days stored in a cool place.  If it has second class protein in it eg. cheese, lentils, eggs, etc, then they will store for about 10 days in a cool place. You can use cake tins lined with baking paper – greaseproof. If there is no meat or second class proteins present then it will last around 3 weeks before they go soft like human biscuits.

Excellent, will give these a try!


How do you store these? In the fridge? How long do they keep?


Hi Jamie

I was under the impression dogs shouldn’t have garlic ?


have you tried making these using golden paste or turmeric gravy?


How long do these keep for? should they be refrigerated?
