Recipe Friday – Dog Treats for Shiny Coat

If you feed your dog healthy food, your dog probably already has a great, glossy coat.  But as dogs age, their skin gets dry and their coat looses it’s luster.  Here are some treats to help keep your dog’s coat shiny!



  • 1 cup organic whole wheat flour (substitute with gluten free option such as rice flour)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons flaxseed meal (substitute with salmon oil and cod liver oil)
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1 tablespoon of local honey
  • 1/3 cup of organic beef or chicken stock



  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a baking sheet with butter or a little oil.
  • In a bowl, mix together the flour, salt, and flaxseed meal. In another bowl combine the egg and honey.
  • Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture and add stock until the dough has the consistency of drop biscuits.
  • Drop heaping tablespoons of the dough onto the baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between the biscuits.

Bake for about 15 minutes. Remove, cool on a wire rack, and store, tightly covered, in a glass or ceramic container for up to a week or in the freezer for up to three months.
