Easy Homemade Pancakes for Dogs

My vet explained that we don’t HAVE to give our dog anything besides dry dog food during the day. But it’s so fun to make healthy recipes for our pups, right? I’ve been experimenting with different recipes, especially when her GI system isn’t behaving very well and she needs some rice to soothe her system.

One of her favorites is plain white rice with some shredded chicken and carrots. It’s so easy to just boil it all up together and I see a marked improvement in her stool soon afterward.

Do you have a morning routine? With 3 kids, 3 cats, a puppy and a fish AND a husband who works at home, a morning routine is essential! In the beginning of our puppyhood it was madness, but I’ve learned to have a kong filled with peanut butter ready to go for when I give the kitties their food. We LOVE our kong!

Also, cooking up a quick scrambled egg is easy and healthy for the dog! All it requires is throwing the egg in the pan and mixing it up while it cooks. No preparation needed and NO spices needed!

flaxseed

Flax for Dogs

If you have some ground flaxseed that is really good for the doggies. Whole flaxseed doesn't get digested - in dogs or humans - and just comes out whole in the stool. So it's always better to buy it ground or grind it at home - and store it in the refrigerator!

Just like humans, flax is super healthy for dogs! According to Lucky Puppy Magazine, roughly a teaspoon a day can help make your pup’s coat glossier and softer. Flax seeds also provide beneficial fiber, omega fatty acids, antioxidants, and alpha-linoleic acid.

This latter compound is a plant-based form of Omega-3 that offers an anti-inflammatory effect, to help keep skin clear and joints supple. Sprinkle ground flax over food, or even bake it into homemade dog goodies!

So these pancakes were super easy as well. I threw everything into the blender and just mixed. I used 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of oats, a banana and 1-2 scoops of peanut butter.

The funny thing is, this protein pancake recipe is super healthy for kids too!

Can my dogs eat pancakes?

There’s a lot of human food that is super nutritious for dogs, but can dogs eat pancakes? According to Rover.com, plain pancakes in moderation are unlikely to harm your dog, although some pets have wheat allergies or sensitivities to grains. However, leftover pancakes with toppings added—including sweets like syrup—are less healthy for dogs, and should generally be avoided. Dogs can eat certain fruits like banana and blueberries, while others (like grapes) are toxic.

Make sure you don't add extra ingredients on or in the pancakes like whipped cream, butter, and syrups.

Some ingredients that you must not include in your pancake recipe include nuts and chocolate as they can be life-threatening for your doggie.

These homemade pancakes for dogs are great because they contain dog-friendly ingredients! As long as the peanut butter does not contain xylitol your pooch is all set to have a yummy treat!

Why can't my dog have xylitol?

Xylitol is extremely toxic to dogs and can be found in some peanut butters. Even small amounts of xylitol can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), seizures, liver failure or even death in dogs. According to Veterinary Care Center Hospitals, when dogs eat something containing xylitol, the xylitol is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, resulting in a potent release of insulin from the pancreas. This rapid release of insulin causes a rapid and profound decrease in the level of blood sugar (hypoglycemia), an effect that occurs within 10-60 minutes of eating the xylitol. Untreated, this hypoglycemia can be life-threatening.

I would keep them for up to a week in the refrigerator, with a week being the absolute longest. You could always freeze some, too!
