Fun Valentine’s Day Pet Treat Ideas
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect opportunity to shower your pet with adoration. While your pet cannot eat chocolate, there are many other safe pet treats you can share with them. Here are three pet-friendly treats to show your pet how much you love them.
#1: Conversation heart cookies
Everyone, including your pet, appreciates home-cooked goodies. Make heart-shaped cookies using your favorite treat recipe, and then use xylitol-free peanut butter or plain greek yogurt in a piping bag to write messages to your furry pal, such as:
- I chew-s you
- Puppy luv
- Good dog
- You’re purr-fect
- Friends fur-ever
- I ruff you
#2: Peanut butter-covered strawberries
Skip the toxicity-causing chocolate coating on juicy strawberries and slather them with xylitol-free peanut butter instead. Berries are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, plus they are a great source of fiber, which aids in digestion. To help your pet enjoy all the health benefits berries have to offer, spread a thin layer of peanut butter on various types of berries, then pop them in the freezer for a tasty frozen treat.
#3: Heart-shaped box of assorted treats
Does your furry friend have too many favorite pet treats to pick just one? Fill a heart-shaped box with delicious, pet-safe goodies. Add bite-size treats, small pieces of fresh fruits and veggies, chunks of cheese, and bites of lean meat, then present the dish to your furry pal. Good treat options include apples, bananas, melons, green beans, carrots, bell peppers, tuna, and turkey breast.
