3 Tbsp Pumpkin puree (you can use canned pumpkin but not pumpkin pie filling)
1/3 Cup Rolled Oats
4 Tbsp Dried Apples (without pips and stems)
3 Tbsp Water
1/2 Cup Flour
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Mix all of the ingredients together in a mixing bowl. You want the mixture to have the same consistency as cookie dough, so you can adjust the amount of ingredients as needed. Remember that rabbits should have a limited amount of pumpkin, oats and dried fruit.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and scoop 1 teaspoon of mix and roll it into a ball (or whatever shape you’d like your treats to be). Make sure to put at least an inch or two between it rolled ball of mix.
Bake your pumpkin treats for 15 minutes at 425 degrees.
These treats are only meant to be a treat, not a staple in your pet’s diet. While pumpkin is a food that your pet can digest, these pumpkin treats should only be given to your pet on special occasions, and no more than one treat a day to keep sugar and starch levels down.
The scariest thing for pets during Halloween
It’s not witches and zombies. A seemingly innocuous bag of candy can be one of the scariest things that enters a pet parent’s home on Halloween!
Chocolate can be deadly to dogs, and other ingredients in candy, such as high amounts of sugar and fat. If a candy is sugar-free, it may contain a sugar substitute called xylitol, which is extremely toxic to dogs, even in small amounts.
Prevention is key! Keep the candy bowl up high, away from the reach of your pets. Be sure to give your dog tons of exercise and a good meal so that they’re not sniffing around for treats.
If you suspect that your pet took a nibble, be sure to contact your vet immediately.
