dental-treatsThis dental dog treats recipe was developed specifically to address the needs of your dog’s teeth and gums.

These dental dog treats are not only delicious, but they also help exercise your dog’s gums and clean her teeth. I found this recipe over at  They have a lot of great recipes, so feel free to check them out.


  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • ¼ cup spinach powder
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup bran
  • 1 T bone meal
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract


  • Mix everything with a mixer in a large bowl or place everything in your bread maker.
  • If you are using a bread maker, set it for the dough cycle.
  • When the dough is mixed, divide it into several equal balls.
  • Roll the dough to a ¼” thickness.
  • Use small cookie cutters to cut into shapes. The ones that I use are about 1” across.
  • Bake at 300 degrees F for about 45 minutes. Check to make sure that the biscuits don’t get too dark.
  • Turn off the oven and let them continue to dry overnight or for several hours.

Your finished product should come out very hard, and should not move at all when you press your finger into it. It’s good for the treats to be hard because it will help remove built-up tartar.

Feed your dog hard, crispy treats on a regular basis in order to maintain good dental hygiene. It’s also best to avoid feeding your dog table scraps. Human food often contains sugar and other substances that aren’t good for our pets.

Also, make sure to brush your dog’s teeth on a regular basis to keep her pearly whites, white!
