Rusty has really bad allergies. He is on a daily steroid pill to maintain them. Because the vet thinks that it is a food allergy he is on a grain free, meat free, vegan diet. And I just want to say that it is hard to find vegan food for a dog. No worries, I found some (granted it is at Petco, not Petsmart that is is 3 minutes from our house).
For the most part Rusty likes it- he definitely likes it better with a bit of the canned stuff stirred in. This also means that he is no longer getting some people food- which is does NOT like.
Vegan food is also expensive. So I found a recipe online for homemade dog treats and I tweaked it for Rusty’s needs.
1 cup of flax seed + 1 jar baby food = easy yummy treats.
All I had was Christmas cookie cutters, so the stars are peas and carrots, and the candy canes are sweet potato. Rusty doesn’t mind. He is one happy (less allergic) puppy!
