I'm looking for opinions & thoughts. I tried a new recipe today for homemade dog treats for our 3 year old Boggle (half Boston Terrier/ half Beagle) but had to make a substitution with one of the ingredients, now I'm wondering if I should have done that.
The recipe called for powdered milk, but the only box at my store was huge & would have expired long before I could use it all; seemed like a waste of money. So I substituted a store brand of 'original' coffee creamer. Today I noticed the first ingredient is 'corn syrup solids'. That's probably like sugar to a dog? When I figured out how much he'd get per treat - it amounts to only about 1/2 teaspoon. (I scored the treats so we can break them in half, my cutter is kind of big for his size).
Any opinions on these treats - will they be bad for him? I thought the recipe sounded good - contains ingredients like small jar meat baby food, chicken bouillon, rice, some whole wheat flour & regular flour etc. - I've made recipes that were easier, but this one sounded interesting. Thanks for any thoughts.
