无麸质健康南瓜狗饼 Healthy Pumpkin Dog Treats

I love my furkids very much and treat them like my own offsprings. They are like children who are forever in childlike state, constantly looking up to us for attention and emotional support.

Among my 3 lovely fur babies, the eldest one is born with severe chronic allergies to most food and preparing custom home cooked food for her is a daily routine. We tried out best to keep them in good shape by giving food which corresponds to their health and growth stage.

Despite the endless bouts of health issues and challenges all these years, my eldest baby Coco who has gone deaf and blind, managed to sustain till a ripe 15 years of age and still counting. Recently, a mass bout of malignant tumor started to invade her pelvis area and within a short period of 3 months the tumor has grown into 6 times the original size. Given her advanced age, the vet discouraged performing surgery to remove the lump citing that the removal would put our baby into more risk than good.

We are saddened to learn that her days are numbered and soon she will have to leave us. Hence I set out to make her a batch of home made treats and indulge her when she is still able to enjoy her food.

Here is a simple yet healthy doggie treat for you love pooch.
