Here's an easy recipe for peanut buttery "putty" to surround any pill your dog needs to take. My dogs love them! This treat makes giving pills to a doggy super easy.
It's so much cheaper than the ones you can buy at the pet store.
Old fashioned rolled oats
Tsp measuring spoon
Step 1: Make the Oat Flour
Weigh your oats and grind them up.
I weigh out 90 grams (about 3 ounces) in the top of the coffee grinder.
This recipe calls for 3 parts oats to 2 parts peanut butter (by weight).
Step 2: Add the PB
After you make the oat flour, dump into a bowl. Put the bowl on your scale and add 60 grams of your favorite creamy peanut butter.
Step 3: Mix It Up
Start mixing with a spoon. After breaking up the glob of peanut butter, start mixing with your fingers. The consistency should end up like a slightly crumbly play dough. If you think it's too dry, add a little more peanut butter and mix it thoroughly.
Step 4: Press Into Measured Pieces
Press mixture into a teaspoon measuring spoon (or whatever size you want).
90 grams oats + 60 grams peanut butter yields about 28 tsp servings.
Scale up or down depending on how much you want to make in a batch.
I put them into a ziplock bag and put in the freezer. Whenever I need to give my dog a pill, I take one serving of pill putty out and let it warm up on the counter for a couple minutes before using it.
Cheers to happy and healthy doggies.
