Your dog will love these delicious and Easy Homemade Meatballs for Dogs.
Recently I had to give Callie, my Labrador Retriever, an antibiotic pill. I tried hiding it in cheese and luncheon meat and she’d everything but the pill! Little stinker!
So I came up with these homemade meatballs for dogs! She took it and didn’t even know there was a doggie pill inside! Ah ha! They worked great if you need to give your puppy medication.
At first she would sniff and smell, but luckily she had no idea what was hiding inside. The meaty taste hides the pills so they’ll never know. It really does work!
Just to be sneaky. I’ll mix them up with vegetables. Sometimes dogs are like kids, you can’t make the healthy stuff too easy. You have to be as sneaky getting fruits and vegetables into a dog as you do a kid.
You can switch between frying or baking these homemade meatballs for dogs a variety of options.
Adding rice and vegetables as a stir-fry is a third option to make the most of your hamburger meat for your pup. This is a great way to use meat and vegetables as either a dog topper, dog meal or treat.
Simply stir-fry your meat, add vegetables and fruits, a little sauce and bam, you’ve got a stir-fry for dogs. Trust me, they’ll love it and come running for dinner every time.
Can I use these to give my dogs supplements or medications?
I have a dog in the past who would pick out that pill no matter what I did to hide it. She was a smart one!
Be sure and add your vitamins as this is not a balanced meal for your pet.
What else can I use as the protein meat?
The best thing about his recipe is that you can easily mix a variety of meats into these recipes.
Other meat options:
Ground beef stew
Ground Tuna or Salmon
Ground Beef – I like to use ground beef when making meatballs, but you can easily use ground turkey or chicken.
Eggs – Eggs bind the meatballs together and make rolling easier. Eggs are excellent for making your dogs coat shiny.
Chopped Parsley – Parsley is healthy for dogs and helps to freshen your dogs breath. You can also add additional herbs to your meatballs. Here’s a complete list of healthy herbs that are good for dogs.
Low Fat Yogurt – Yogurt is a easily digestible for dogs.
Nutritional Supplement – These meatballs are an easy way to get your dogs minerals and vitamins into your dog.
Fish Oil – just one teaspoon helps with mixing the meatballs and provides a smoothy silk coat for your dog.
These are easiest meatballs. Break up the hamburger, chicken or turkey and shred it into a bowl.
Crack the egg and mix into the meat mixture.
Add supplements and mix with meat.
Bake in the oven or fry on the stove.
